I was at the Naval Postgraduate School for a meeting, and pastries from Paris Bakery were brought in for the group. I normally go for the croissants, but up to now, they're always pretty much the same from any other bakery, irrespective of where I find myself. Not this time. The quality and flavor was noticeably better, and I ended... More

This is a small bakery with wonderful breads, but I went to their pie tasting event, during an art festival, and they where all fantastic!

Better priced coffee here than Starbucks, and it's good coffee. I prefer the coffee au lait. They provide a large assortment of breads, pastries, and cookies. Everything I've eaten here has been tasty. The presentation of the products is charming, and customer service is always prompt and pleasant. I always buy here rather than any other coffee shop.

Paris Bakery is a locals favorite so can be crowded around lunch. They specialize in baked goods but their sandwiches and salads are great as well, particularly the shrimp pasta salad. Prices won't break the bank. Great place for a full meal or a quick sweet or savory snack (cheese twists!). Limited indoor/outdoor seating is first come/serve

Walking inside early on a Sunday morning was a lovely surprise. A vast array of such pretty treats! Don't believe the reviewer who groused about old stock on Sundays--our croissant, scone, and cookies were fresh and yummy. I will definitely return if we revisit Monterey!
