Whenever you are in Santa Cruz, you must visit this place for yummy treats. Their cakes & pastries are so delicious. We specially drooled over the whiskey cake. They also have breakfast and lunch specials.

My daughter and I spontaneously found this place near the yoga class we went to. We had a lovely lunch there, wonderful desserts after. I liked the coffee too.

Lovely French bakery with generous portions and amazingly macaroons flavors. There was a variety of sandwiches, beverages, salads and desserts. The patio offers great shade & sun.
