Good Riddance! This dude has been using a cheap knockoff of Seinfeld's soup nazi schtick for years to make his coffee and pastries seem more like more of a delicacy than they actually are. It actually seemed to work too. His pastries are so-so, and...More

Jean Paul's Goodies is closing (for good) on August 9. A local reviewer characterized the place as fair coffee with alleged home-made goodies. It will soon be gone forever.

The pastries and coffee at Jean-Paul's are delicious. We visit 2 or 3 times on every trip to Laguna Beach. Jean-Paul himself has always been easy to engage in conversation and friendly. We have never had the problems with him that other customers complain about....More

Let's start with the food. Jean Paul has the best chocolate croissants in Laguna Beach. He has excellent coffee. There is adequate parking. The place is charming. Jean Paul is a total, weird, mean, condescending, human being. I will admit that I have not been...More

Ah, what can i say about Jean Paul? It's true, he has the best French coffee around (rich & strong Cafe au Lait) and his pastries are to die for, but be prepared for his grumpy nature! And heaven forbid, NEVER ask for a cappuccino...More
