Wish I could remember all the names, but all of us liked all of the pastries we shared. All were light, not too sweet, each was a work of delectable art. I purchased the larger single size servings, took them to our friends' place and sliced them up so we could all exclaim over them. The patisserie also makes smaller... More

Most excellent melt-in-your-mouth quiches, and don't forget to add the home made soup of the day and a salad! The patisserie has the most wonderful desserts. I ordered my daughter's wedding cake there...three layers of chocolate, dark, medium and white! She loved it. We go back each year to savour it! Wonderful people, family atmosphere, excellent service!

The only places you will find comparable croissants is in France and Italy. And, the rest of the food is right up there with the croissants. The cakes are literally works of art, and if it is possible, they taste as good as they look. The soups, quiches, sandwiches, and salads are all fare fit for the most discriminating foodie.... More

We enjoyed the croissants here - almond for him, almond raspberry for me. We found this place traveling from Carmel to Monterey, on our way to the aquarium. This bakery is not in the middle of the Carmel/Monterey tourist attractions, so the parking is easy and prices fair. We enjoyed our breakfast here before the aquarium opened.

We'll be back!! Stopped in for lattes and pasteries. Hard to make a choice. Almond raspberry croissant was decadently delicious. Apple strudel was fantastic. Lovely dining room with plants and fountain was comfortable and gave us a peek of the bay. Wish we had found them sooner.

We've enjoyed each delicious bite of Bechler's French pastries. The owner is obviously a master baker appreciated by locals as well as tourists. There is plenty of free parking since the building was once an A &W!

Our family has used Bechler's for years for all our pastry needs. I work in the wedding business and highly reccommend them for wedding cakes. If we need high quality pastries for an event - these are the folks to go to.

A must for breakfast! The owner is from Alsace and the interior of the cafe reflects that. The Nutella croissant was a highlight for me. Even if you're staying in Carmel, it's worth the 15 minute drive!
