Service was fast, pastries and baguettes are fresh and tasty, coffee was good. Was even able to parallel park in front of the store. This end of Cambria obviously gets less traffic coming off PCH, but it is worth coming here for a quick, satisfying...More

They have many delicious items to choose from for treats as well as sandwiches and coffee. My only complaint would be the coffee... it's not very good. Has that ash taste that we are not fond of. We would for sure visit more often if...More

This is a delightful way to start your morning whether you choose to jockey for a seat or pick up your coffee and danish and head to the beach. The nicest part--they open early for those of us who can't wait to start our day....More

I would go here again when in the area; the bakery items were excellent! My husband loved their ham and cheese crossiant. I loved their chocolate croissant!

This is a wonderful place to stop and have coffee and have a wonderful pastry. Friendly and efficient service and the variety of pastries is excellent. Coffee is high quality. Homey atmosphere and didn't see a single laptop while we were there.

We've stopped here a number of times, usually for coffee and a pastry. On our most recent trips to Cambria we have started buying bread here. It's excellent!

I have been visiting Cambria for years and have been meaning to stop here; finally got the chance for breakfast. The ham and cheese croissant (they will heat it for you) is to die for; the danish was pretty darn good as well. They have...More

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!
