We had rea, coffee and a pastry. The pasteries were excellent. It is self serve. The decor needs freshing. It was a welcome"sit down and have a spot of tea"

We bought a variety of treats as well as a French loaf - all were very tasty and not too expensive, considering.

Some of the best bear claws we've ever had! Also the cinimmon rolls and oatmeal cookies. We don't drink coffee but everyone seemed to be enjoying it. Very limited seating so best to get it to go. Well worth the home made flavor.

In a cute area of town. Has its own parking area. You might not be able to sit, as there are only a few tables. There may be a line, but worth the wait. Was nice to be able to get pastries and coffee for...More

The bakery serves sandwiches in addition to bakery items. I had a quiche, which was very nice. My daughter had a sandwich and a lemon cake, which was very good.

Nestled in the adorable town of Cambria is a tasty French bakery. Delightful and comfortable seating inside and outside. Excellent breakfast delights and wonderful coffee. Great to wake up to.

A must stop every time in Cambria, my Gf swears they have the best almond croissants in the area. For me the bear claws are it!

Popular little bakery/coffee shop in the beautiful town of Cambria. Fresh everything, but favorites include the cinnamon rolls and bear claws.

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!
