This is the best kept secret in Carlsbad for breakfast. Good coffee, fresh ingredients, crepes and good prices make this a wonderful spot for breakfast. Friendly staff that work hard to please. Breakfast is served until 2. Pastries and baguettes are not bad either!!!

What a huge disappointment. Today I had the most disgusting sandwich sat down in front of me. Alas, the Carlsbad French Bakery has gone white trash. They no longer have paninis, but instead are serving their prosciutto sandwiches smothered in mayo. Perhaps they are considering...More
