This bakery hits all the marks. The treats on display in the front window draws you in and they do not disappoint. Spent the day in La Jolla and wanted to pick up some pastries to go before heading back down to San Diego. Decided on the apple croissant. Didn't enjoy until the next morning and was still flakey and... More

Most of the food at Girard Gourmet is very good with the exception of their various cakes and pies. They have a habit of selling stale products. It's very discouraging to have a dinner party and when your ready for desert you cut into a Girard Gourmet cake or pie and its as hard as a rock. Just don't have... More

My friends and I enjoyed a hot, tasty lunch at Girard Gourmet. We were so stuffed that we had no room left for dessert.

This place was suggested to us by an employee at the information booth in San Diego. It was a GREAT suggestion and we were glad to find it. The variety of sandwiches is impressive and a half of sandwich is a big portion. I ordered the BLT and was so very impressed with the amount of bacon and the delicious... More

Italian bread is 10/10. The sandwiches are insanely healthy and tasty. Ordered alfalfa sprouts with everything! Delivery guy was sharp and cool. If you like Generous portions, high quality and reasonable prices; this is your place. We thoroughly enjoyed the turkey and avocado sandwich and the tuna salad sandwich and the pastrami and ham and cheese. Great place!

We have been stopping by the Girard Gourmet for coffee and pastries over the past couple of week, but today we actually tried the breakfast sandwich and it was FANTASTIC! The bread was freshly baked and the eggs and bacon were well prepared. It was scrumptious. Wish we had tried it earlier in our stay.

Almost overwhelmed by abundance of great looking and tasting choices -- server encouraged us to have a taste any offering prior to ordering. In the end, had an absolutely scrumptous chicken curry sandwich with all kinds of delicious add-ons (shaved beets, etc) on thick slices of terrific grain bread. (Only better sandwich was from now defunct eatery in Burlington, Vt.)
