I would go here again when in the area; the bakery items were excellent! My husband loved their ham and cheese crossiant. I loved their chocolate croissant!

This is a wonderful place to stop and have coffee and have a wonderful pastry. Friendly and efficient service and the variety of pastries is excellent. Coffee is high quality. Homey atmosphere and didn't see a single laptop while we were there.

We've stopped here a number of times, usually for coffee and a pastry. On our most recent trips to Cambria we have started buying bread here. It's excellent!

I have been visiting Cambria for years and have been meaning to stop here; finally got the chance for breakfast. The ham and cheese croissant (they will heat it for you) is to die for; the danish was pretty darn good as well. They have...More

If you want crusty bread, for your wine cheese and deli meat, stop by French Corner Bakery. Looks like they also had great desserts.

Stopped in this little corner bakery for a cappuccino and croissant during a quick morning visit from Paso Robles(only takes @ 28 minutes driving time from Paso.) Cute little café with inside as well as a few outside tables. Very enjoyable.

I love the wedding cookies here. The pastries always taste day old to me, but they are still good. Nice little place for a cup of coffee and some dessert.

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!
