If you want crusty bread, for your wine cheese and deli meat, stop by French Corner Bakery. Looks like they also had great desserts.

Stopped in this little corner bakery for a cappuccino and croissant during a quick morning visit from Paso Robles(only takes @ 28 minutes driving time from Paso.) Cute little café with inside as well as a few outside tables. Very enjoyable.

I love the wedding cookies here. The pastries always taste day old to me, but they are still good. Nice little place for a cup of coffee and some dessert.

We visit this beautiful little bakery every time we visit. My husband loves the eclairs and I love pumpkin squares. Great selection of desserts. They also make sandwiches at lunchtime.

Very tasty - across the street from Linn's. This is the French bakery, not the Italian bakery. I'm not sure if they provided silverware but it was still very good.

Excellent coffee, pastries and pre-made sandwiches (Way better than what Starbuck's serves). Located on a main corner in town. Eat inside or on the sidewalk. Been there many times and WILL return.

The coffee and bakery are great places. The French environment, quite small, but warm and welcoming. The bakery fragrance made you go in each time you passed it. Close to the beach, great location for a morning walk, coffee and a coussaint with butter. Excellent...More

Questions & Answers
TRASERDESIGNINC - Not sure why you left them a one star review just because you were inconvenienced that they were not open. Yes - a drunk plowed into their restaurant leaving MAJOR damage. They've been working on repairing the damage for months. It wasn't their fault and they should not be reviewed badly because of something that was totally out of their control! One star reviews are for restaurants that perform terribly (and should probably be shut down). Giving this restaurant a one star review when they have been getting 4-5 stars only brings their total score down and drops them lower on the list of Cambria restaurants - - - - - which will also hurt their business. Maybe you don't get how the reviews work. You should review on service, food and experience - not on the fact that they were closed when you wanted to visit - especially when it was something that could not be helped. I don't work here or know anyone that does. I've been here a few times on my annual visits to Cambria. Just think your review was very unfair!
