This little bakery cafe has excellent pastries, in the European tradition- not too large and not too sweet. Their coffee and expresso drinks are also top notch. The soups and sandwiches for lunch are also quite good. Highly Recommend

We waited about three minutes at the counter while the presumptive owner talked to a friend. He finally gave us the courtesy to ask us if we wanted to order. We did. He then told us our total, but said he didn't take credit cards. We paid a couple dollars cash for the drink we had opened and left because... More

On a foggy day in Pacific Grove, the homemade chicken soup is to die for. They make their egg noodles and trust me it's the best, it is served with wonderful focaccia bread. The croissants may not be the biggest in town, but they are the definitely the tastiest! I will be back for soup soon and the croissants!

Not a lot to choose from at midday on a Sunday, but what we bought was really tasty and not overly pricy. The Bearclaw was the unanimous favourite! The slices of pie looked delicious as well.

This is a small place with a limited amount of items. That being said the pie was very good and I had a grove cookie that was above average. The fella behind the counter was not the most sociable gent either. Maybe had a bad night or something.

Went into this Bakery on our way out of town to take these desserts to our family. They were very unfriendly and did not want to put my pastries in a box because they said I needed to purchase 12 pieces for a box. I purchased 9 but had to buy 3 more cookies to get the box to travel... More

Beautiful assortment of freshly baked pastries, pies and cookies. We were quickly "addicted" to the Grove Cookie - owner, pastry chef on site-friendly!

Kevin Fournier is a genius with baked goods. His croissants will convince you that your time machine took you to Paris. Divine! Everything at Fournier's is perfectly crafted and becomes the benchmark for culinary memories. Do not miss!
