This was the first place in the area to provide authentic French style bread and pastries, and the products are still very good. I had a chicken sandwich and a pastry with coffee, all quite good. The prices were a little high but this IS Newport Beach after all. The ambiance is odd. It is a commercial area off the... More

Recently remodeled store, actual address 149 Riverside Dr., is still inviting with fresh baked breads and pastries. Delicious sandwiches are also available. Fresh brewed coffee to go with the goodies. Seating inside, limited off street parking.

Love this place. Their sandwiches are fresh and the baguettes took me back to street corner French food super busy at lunch but line went fast. The bakery items looked very tempting. Highly recommend for a casual meal. Very high quality!

By afternoon the case is 1/3 of what the morning offers. Good French pastries, imported cheeses, great coffee drinks--sandwiches, salads, etc. Some construction happening but a very pleasant stop.

We visited on a busy Saturday. Line went fast and sandwiches were excellent. 6" was actually a bit longer, with chips and drink priced below $10. Curried chicken was tasty and the baguette perfect with crunch on outside and tender bread on inside. Only issue was it was hard to get a table! The other pastries in case looked very... More

You can see the Bay when you park. :) Wonderful, and as hard as always to resist that dang cookie, pastry & cake counter (my eyes always dart over, lol.) My husband & I love the sandwiches on baguettes (I'm starting to drool while describing.) You have many choices: chicken curry or tarragon (I know the menu by heart, grin),... More

As there are a lot of renovations going on I guess we can excuse the place for not looking so great! The sandwiches we had were average and the service good. The atmosphere was very hectic and not relaxing at all.... Will try again once complete!

I took my friend who lived in France and can never find a good french baguette, and she was thoroughly impressed! I guess it helps that the owner is actually French, as well. ;) The sandwiches are good, and I LOOOVE the palmier cookies. I worked here way back in high school, (21 years ago!!) and its neat to see... More
