I have been going to this restaurant for about four decades. Other than a change in the pastries, when the French couple that owned it died in a car crash, the food has been remarkably consistent. There is adequate space between tables and the dining room is delightfully quiet, a rarity these days. They do not allow people to use... More

We stopped in today for a light lunch and were very pleased. Had salad and their onion soup. One of the best onion soups I have had and the salad was delicious. If we are back in the area, we will certainly. Go back.

Stepping into this place makes you feel as though you're in a farmhouse in Provence or the Loire Valley. Homemade pastries (try a flaky croissant with their homemade raspberry preserves), and some of the best fresh-squeezed OJ you'll ever taste! Overall, they have terrific light breakfasts and hearty lunches. My most recent trip was on a rainy Sunday. Tried the... More

Best 4 bucks I spent all... More

Whenever we go to Carmel we eat here. Sometimes we think we'll try somewhere else but then we figure why chance it! It's comfortable, the service is great and the food is delicious. You have to walk by the pastry case when you go in so of course you have to have some desert! This restaurant makes every visit seem... More

Patisserie Boissiere is a Carmel gem. Whether you stop by for lunch, tea, or just to treat yourself to one of their delectable French pastry treats, you won't be disappointed. Today we were blown away by their bittersweet pot de creme and creme brûlée. Yum!

My wife and I had such a great time in Monterey and Carmel in 2014, we came back for round 2. :-) While meandering around Carmel, we happened upon Patisserie Boissiere and liked what we saw on the menu, so we decided to have lunch. The restaurant is decorated very tastefully and the atmosphere is cozy and warm. We were... More

A relaxing and comforting venue modeled after a European chateau where tables are thoughtfully spaced and fresh flowers, fireplace, candles and soothing musical notes are integral part of the dining experience. The ambience sets the tone for French country food served with a great deal of care for detail, and pastries baked daily on premises. Dining room is available for private dinner parties.
