Oui! Oui! C’est Si Bon

Chances are you’ve already sampled the star of C’est Si Bon Bakery in Newport Beach: its crispy French baguettes can be found at many popular coastal OC restaurants. But if you haven’t, now’s as good a time as any. The bustling bakery has been doling out some of the best deli sandwiches and pastries, as many locals can attest.

Grab a bagged lunch by ordering any one of their hefty sandwiches stuffed with a variety of quality cold cuts and cheeses like Havarti and even Brie. A tip: Arrive by 9 a.m. to grab freshly baked baguettes right outta the oven, and don’t forget to nab one of C’est Si Bon’s divine croissants as well. And if you’re a chocolate lover, do try the Chocolate Bomb, a dome-shaped dessert filled with decadent mousse.

C’est Si Bon is at 149 Riverside Ave. (near the post office), Newport Beach. 949.645.0447.
