A great find in a pretty little town. We had a variety of pastries which were all great. The stand out being the pound cakes. Ordered a Ciabatta to go and looking forward to having for lunch.

We stopped in for dessert and coffee. SO GOOD. What a delight! Not your average bakery. My husband had the blackforest cake and I had the vanilla, lemon/ raspberry cake. These were sweetly artistic mini cakes. Extremely moist and as tasty as they were beautiful....More

Wonderful ambiance, warm and inviting. Great place to sit and enjoy your spresso drink or tea. I loved the white sauce pizza with artichoke, the cheesy bread sticks and cake. They serve MightLeaf tea which is really good, I especially like the Spring Jasmine. Each...More

Was desperate for strong coffee Thanksgiving morning. I saw the line for this bakery and decided to get my fix there. Asked for a double shot latte with soy milk. It tasted watery and weak - so disappointed - waste of money.

Stopped in early in the morning before leaving the area and wished we had found it sooner. I had the best plain croissant and my wife had the Bear Claw. Both just melted in your mouth. We had a Mr Coffee pot at the home...More

The variety of items is fantastic. No simple Danish; these are true French pastries. Yep, they probably had the calories to prove it. Great coffee and service. This is a MUST visit store in Cambria.

I live in Cambria and pass this bakery frequently. They have a very wide range of items to choose from. I've never been disappointed. The seating area inside is small and cozy. There are also a couple of tables outside. Coffee is good, good pastries......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!
