They have good breakfast, I always get the Crostini. They always have specials for the day. They have good bread and pastries. Their coffee is good but you will have to pay for the refill.

Had a great latte this morning! This is a nice place and very clean. However, they seem to be a pretty busy place. It was a bit confusing when you first enter...there is a sign that states please wait to be seated. However, there wasn't anyone to seat you. Instead we were told to order at the counter and then...

We found this little jewel on Coast Hwy a few years ago and dine here every time we are in town. Outstanding pastries, Terrific omelets and sandwiches. My wife loves coffee drinks, mochas, capuccinos, cortados, and Petite Madeline does them well. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Go here as early as you can because it fills up at busy... More

This place can get very busy with a longer wait but definitely worth it. I always stop in and get some fresh pastries.

We enjoy breakfast here several times whenever we are near Oceanside. Their pancakes, French toast, house potatoes and All day buns are a must have for us. Great coffee too! Cute comfortable atmosphere. We highly recommend this cafe.

I stopped in while editing for my train. Had a gingerbread got chocolate and a cinnamon bun. Service was very friendly but a little slow, but it was pouring rain and I had an hour to kill. Food was good.

My friend and I visited with our children for coffee and a late morning bite to eat. My friend has the sweet crepe and hot chocolate and she said both were good. I had the pumpkin waffles and they were incredible! My only suggestion would be to cut the mousse on the waffles in half. There's a ton! The staff... More

For a few years now, my wife would rave about this small eatery and bakery; she and colleagues eating there any time there crazy schedules permitted. I finally joined them and see what the fuss was all about. Crepes, sandwiches, salads all bursting with flavor and the freshest of ingredients. Don't forget the pastries; they are worthy of the French... More
