I found this bakery on the way back from Torrey pines reserve. Went there for breakfast and tried the French baked goodies with French hot chocolate. Loved the breakfast so much that I went there for lunch same day. Food was served fresh, portion size was enough and staff was very friendly. I was very happy to find deserts which... More

Though they serve meals here, I only go for pastry and coffee.Yesterday we had a Napoleon, which was terrific. The cinnamon roles are also delicious, as is the freshly baked bread.

So good I went twice in one week. The breakfast brioche and the pesto chicken salad with their homemade potato salad, were the essence of great brunch food. Outdoor seating by the water fountain under the trees, for well deserved relaxation. The pastries, and custardy goodness rounds out your visit with just the right amounts of indulgence.

Excellent boulangerie, but also good for a light lunch or a hearty breakfast, the strawberry pancake being the most delicious sweet you'll ever taste. Good service all day long.

Saturday morning breakfast at the Bistro was a treat. The wait staff was very attentive, never letting the water or coffee get low and always checking on us, which doesn't always happen elsewhere. (the coffee is very good!) Ordered an omelet which comes with potatoes and fresh bread, both delicious. When the cheese I ordered was left off my omelet... More

We came here after the next door snooze had a 1.5 hour wait and we decided to pass. We don't regret the decision for a second. Although the place was packed, the service was great and the food was very good. Highly recommended.

This French bakery/cafe is situated in Del Mar Highlands mall. on a sunday morning, we thought of trying this cafe - we chose indoor seating as outside was too hot (summer time). we had Chicken panini Sandwich and Chicken Florentine Crepes. I loved Panini sandwich specially their peso sauce, delicious! we also opted for Creme Brulee as desert....

My husband and I needed a late night dessert and this place hit the spot. We had the Three Layer Chocolate Mousse Cake and Creme Brulee both were amazing. We loved this place so much we came back for breakfast the next day. The have a great patio or you can dine in.

My wife and I like to visit this bakery and bistro in Del Mar Heights. The ambiance is very comfortable. The pace is relaxing. The baked good without peer locally. The meals on the bistro side cannot be beat.
