The quiche lorraine is perfect, and the almond coissants are too. The cakes are good, but could be better. Cute little spot in Seaside. A fun bit of France on Broadway!

Went here to buy a birthday cake. Quality, aromas, choices are as good as it gets anywhere. This is a really impressive place. Baking goes on all day with new items constantly coming out of the kitchen. Highly recommended.

Absolutely perfect! Great place. The pastries are excellent, as well as the quiche and are only exceeded by the extremely friendly faces which work there.

This place is the bomb. Lovely French breakfast pastries, baguettes and all kinds of bread, gorgeous tarts and cakes - just like, well, a REAL bakery! No Starbucks ten-pound flavorless scones, here. The almond croissant was melt-in-the-mouth. They have grab and go sandwiches on their delightful bread for ridiculously cheap. I so wish we had a real bakery like this... More

I had Paris Bakery's delicious danish and croissants when I stayed at Horizon Inn & Oceanview Lodge five years ago. When my inlaws booked a room at the Inn recently for a birthday, I contacted Paris Bakery a week prior. They delivered hand picked desserts to the hotel so I could surprise them. Paris Bakery staff was very helpful to... More

This was a great little bakery that I found online. So much to choose from and excellent service from all the people behind the counter. There is a very large selection of bakery items as well as sandwiches and drinks. Everything we tried was excellent. You need to try this place!

Delicious pastries and coffee. Such a spread of selection and all so fresh. All of the fruit pastries taste just like you are in Paris. The staff is very kind and even the patrons are very friendly. I highly recommend.

My wife and I walked through town early one morning - and stopped in the Paris Bakery for a quick breakfast. As you enter the cafe, the baked goods on display are gorgeous - a wide variety of breads and amazing looking pastries. Service is friendly and helpful - a nice lady at the counter took our order, made the... More

After a week visiting Monterey, I can tell you the early breakfast spots there are few and far between. Paris Bakery is a godsend for the early riser. Down the street from our hotel, we ate here twice during our stay, both times with good results. We tried the quiches (delicious) and the pastries (also wonderful). It's easy to be... More
