We love this place to find a special treat for afternoon tea or a dessert. Much more is available. Never been disappointed except when they sell out a favorite before we arrive.

Their pastries are fantastic as are their quiches and I'm sure their other sandwiches, but in all the trips we've eaten there, I absolutely have to have their pork torta. The bread is great, the pork is flavorful and roasted with good spices, and their...More

Great for a quick lunch or early dinner if you don't feel like dealing with the over-priced and mediocre restaurants of Cambria. Cute faux French decor but don't expect French cafe food. They have your usual selection of sandwiches as well as a meatless sandwich...More

Stopped in for a quick breakfast before heading up the coast. Both the spinach and feta croissant and the ham and cheese croissant were terrific. It was nice to sit outside and watch the town come to life. We also picked up a yummy chocolate...More

Stopped in for a little snack and that is where my problem started. How do you choose???? I was leaving the next day so bought several of their desserts for the trip. Every mouthful was great.

We always stop here when we visit Cambria. The coffee drinks are always perfect and the baked treats are wonderful. The lunch sandwiches are filling, robust and tasty. No stay in Cambria is complete without a visit. It is also very affordable for those on...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!
