I did love the original Babette Feast located on Atlantic Avenue in Long Beach. I am a credentialed teacher and at that time, roughly speaking 1995, I enjoyed the authentic and polite people who worked there. I speak some French so that was a wonderful part of the fun...better than cafeteria food! When Poly decided to create new campuses on... More

They will not cater a tray of items without at least 48-hours notice. They will not allow a charge of less than $10.00. And they are very rude and uncompromising on both counts. Pastries are pricey, and not really French. I avoid it.

Stopped by this café after my morning jog by the ocean; bought a baguette and a croissant au beurre. The baguette is basically not bad but has nothing to do with the French baguette. It is soft inside out as well as its crust. The croissant tastes ok but has a strong yeast flavor and is super huge. I was... More

everything is made fresh. Amazing detail on the chocolate mouse with black and white lady fingers around the edges. The truffles are sooo light and fluffy, get more than a few.

This is my go-to place for tarts and pastries for dinner parties. They make then fresh daily and have a good variety - so you can order in advance or just pop by and see what they have to offer.

If you are in need of a sweet treat, skip Sweet Jill's and head to Babette's. I am on 2nd Street often and am required by my mother to pick up a dozen Palmiers when she knows I'm going :)

This was a great stop off for sandwiches and a drink. I had the rosemary chicken and a mocha drink. My friend's sandwich was delish as well. We finished up with some macaroons.

This was our breakfast spot every morning. We had the most delicious croissants. The cookies and pastries are beautiful and delicious. We loved getting a fresh orange juice everyday. There are many other savory dishes as well. This was definitely worth every penny. There is always a lady selling fresh flowers just outside the front door as well. The attendants... More

Who needs France? Stop by Babette's Feast for your French pastry, bread, and bistro fix. All items are yummy. Plus, think of all the $$$ you will save since you just found your French Bistro right here in Long Beach.

Delicious baguettes and other pastries. They hand make sandwiches to order and they have a few hot entrees as well. The service is good and there's a nice patio if you want to eat there.
