“Heavenly Baked Delights in Pacific Grove!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

Some of the finest and most flavorful pastries we have ever tasted!
Bearclaws and croissant are absolutely divine!

“Best Bombaloni”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Fabulous creations by master baker... Love the bombaloni, the thumbprint cookies and all the fabulous breakfast pastries... It's totally understandable why there's a line out the door every weekend.

“don't tell anyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

This is simply the best bakery in the area.
We vacationed here for the past few decades-- I would have dreams about the bearclaws when I returned home. Now we are locals--and I can walk over for my pastry any Tuesday-Saturday. Go early, as some items sell out quickly.
There are a few tables and the coffee is hot. It's a bakery not a coffee shop, but the coffee is better than most restaurant coffee.
Cheddar sourdough bread: Yum.

“Every weekend...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

This is just a great bakery... but they also have wonderful petite sandwiches and house-made pizza.
The breads, cookies and pastries are as good as any you'd find in major cities or the back streets of Paris... wonderful.

“WORTH THE WAIT!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

My girlfriends and I stopped by one morning around 845 am. Line was out the door, but moved quickly. The sizes of the pastries are enormous, and the prices are low. The cinnamon rolls are huge and delicious. They are not gooey and greasy like mall cinnamon buns. They are flakey with an intense cinnamon center. Huge chocolate croissants will be my next purchase! Can't wait to go back again! (Limited seating available. Also offer bread.)
