This is a place my girlfriends and I always stop at for lunch when we visit Carmel. It has a good selection of offerings. We especially like the Turkey Sandwich. The Onion Soup and the Quiche Lorraine are good. If you want a special treat, try the Chocolate Pudding. I love chocolate and this was over-the-top delicious. The atmosphere charming... More

The bakery looked awesome! Wish we hadn't already purchased a different one because we would have had a ball picking from their beautiful display of authentic French selections. I had the quiche for brunch and it was delicious and my boyfriend had the salmon, which was wonderful as well. Generous portions, cozy and homey environment. Reasonable prices for Carmel.

Pastries and coffee beverages are the best in Carmel. Dinner is sub-par for the area. Wait staff is friendly and energetic.

Quiche, soup and crab/croissant sandwich all excellent, generous portions. The only negative for our visit was the bossy tone of the - waitress or owner? - telling us we had to move one of our...

We went there for lunch and were very pleased. The house white Burgundy was nice. The Croissant, turkey and cheese was very good but filling. I had the french onion soup which was just like I remember from my days in France. The have a number of home made pastries that all were very inviting.

It is a local favorite place in addition to tourists. Prices are great too, not killing your pocket. They also offer a large amount of backed goods for desert and make me wanting to eat it all. I recommend to visit this place.

We always enjoy our meals here. Small but with lots of charm. Romantic. I wouldn't recommend it for families with small children unless they're exceptionally well behaved. Good menu with a nice selection of pastries as well.

We came in on a Sunday evening expecting not much. We had no reservations anywhere. Stopped at 2 other places one was over an hour wait the other could offer nothing at all. At Patisserie Boissiere we were greeted and sat very quickly. Ordered and the service was great. No time at all we had our appetizers. Dinner followed and... More

We came here after dinner at the flying fish grill downstairs. All we want were coffee and dessert. The people were truly nice and welcomed us in. The service was quick and friendly and the raspberry triangle was very nice.

A relaxing and comforting venue modeled after a European chateau where tables are thoughtfully spaced and fresh flowers, fireplace, candles and soothing musical notes are integral part of the dining experience. The ambience sets the tone for French country food served with a great deal of care for detail, and pastries baked daily on premises. Dining room is available for private dinner parties.
