The constant line out the front door speaks volumes as to how popular the Paris Bakery Cafe is. A huge selection of pastries and cookies. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The food is excellent and a definite "must" to eat while in Monterey!!

We googled breakfast restaurants and this wonderful place came up! We had breakfast croissants and shared a yummy cherry pastry. The coffee was good and service impeccable. A lot of locals frequent the place and were all greated by name.

Imagine a large size caffe latte for $3.25. There as also a fair assortment of pasteries and the chocolate almond croissant was good. Wished they offered a cheese-charcuterie plate to have with the excellent looking baguettes; it would have made an authentic European breakfast.

You know this place is going to be good when the queue is long with locals on their way to work. Well worth it - another trip advisor find that is slightly off the beaten track but well worth it.
