Carlsbad Village Intel: My daughter wanted croissants this morning and I needed three things from Smart and Final Cbad Village Dr/The 5. We looooove the French bakery (right there with the hardware store, Golden Tee, and El Puerto). Called first but no answer or clarity whether they were open. Stopped in and Baker/Owner and (possibly ... read more

I ordered lunch to-go here today and it was delicious! I highly recommend the Brie panini with black forest ham!!! My co-worker got the cajun shrimp panini and he said it was really good too. Thanks for staying open during this time...I will be back soon!

The French Pastry Cafe made exquisite three tiered cakes for both our 30th and 50th Wedding Anniversaries! And we had a lovely 12 inch Grooms Cake made as well. We love Paris and all things done as only the French do to perfection! When we can’t get to Paris, what do we do? Go to the French Pastry Cafe, of course!

My wife was having her birthday party and needed a cake, we looked at many places but decided to have this place make our special order cake. The employees were very attentive and the cake came out delicious. We will definitely buy future cakes from here again.

Pastries are good but service is horrible.   I've been a couple of times thinking that maybe it was just that person having a bad day but it was the same the 2nd time around. Just rude.

First Visit.
Wanted some crepes and found this place on TA. Homey, nice selection, fresh and hot, good service. Portions are enough to share. Crepes are 2 good sized per order.

We just stopped by for chocolate croissants and they are great as usual. We picked up a Yule log for Christmas and it was delicious-- perfect dessert for our Christmas dinner. Special compliments to Ella, who took my order over the phone for the Yule log- she was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly.

THIS PLACE IS AWESOME. Our daughter is in France for 18 months so now my wife and I visit every French Bakery we find.

Super pain de chocolate! Very friendly service and prompt delivery of the delicious pain de chocolate. Baguettes are soft and sooo tasty! Can't wait to get home to eat it! Only less than stellar time was the drip coffee which was alright.

We are in Carlsbad for a few days, and stumbled upon this cafe. It's in the shopping center that has Smart & Final Extra, in the back row of storefronts. They have outdoor seating, and a good sized dining room adjacent to the bakery cases.

We only had bakery experience but it was tremendous with the array of pastries available. Everything we had was freshly baked and tasted so.

A Hidden Gem!!
This little French Cafe had wonderful breakfasts and lunches, from fresh quiche and salad to absolutely delicious pastries. Their fresh baked bread is to die for as well! Try the florentines! Yummmmm! With a good cup of latte, you're all set!

Their pastries are amazing!! My favorite is the almond croissant! I literally drive over an hour just to come to this place for a croissant!! The owner of the bakery is a customer at my place of work, he brought us a box of baked goods one day and I've been hooked ever since. I do not mind driving over an hour some good pastries!

Disappointing. I make a point of looking for croissants when we travel. This place actually made me think I should stop doing that. My husband said the croissant as akin to Costco's. Not horrible, just not a flaky, buttery croissant. More like bread. He also wondered if it was a day old. Their cakes are beautiful. Maybe we sho ... read more

The fruit tarts are what I come here to eat! The fruits are always fresh. The pastry shell is never soggy filled with an almond filling topped with custard. They also make these tarts couple times daily so you know tuerie fresh and good. I've eaten these three times already last week!! I have a hard time staying away from this place.

I never would have noticed this place from the street. My parents suggested meeting there for breakfast and at first I was unsure Google maps had me at the right location.

The food was k but the service was not that good. I had to get up 3 times from my table to ask for things. Waitress kept going behind counter and just standing there talking to other employees. I love their cakes and I'll keep going for that but not to go and eat.

Excellent customer service, pastries, and coffee!I was in the area and decided to give it a try, even though the reviews weren't too great. I'm glad I did, because I was very satisfied with their kindness and communication about how long it'd take for my pastries to be warmed up. I will definitely stop by next time I'm in Carlsbad!
