Located outside the Santa Anita Mall in Arcadia, Paris Baguette serves up various baked pastries and cakes including French macarons. Trays and tongs are available for you to place all of your bakery selections. Most cake items need to be requested from behind the counter.

Today, we decided to get the strawberry bar cake, fresh strawberry cake, and chocolate chiffon cake. The strawberry bar cake was a very dense sponge cake with a distinctly odd strawberry flavor, but tasted fake. The fresh strawberry cake was very light and airy and was not too sweet. The whipped cream on top was light and fluffy. The strawberry flavor inside was light and fresh. The chocolate chiffon cake was moist and airy. The chocolate flavor was light and not overpowering. The whipped cream was also light and fluffy.

Overall, Paris Baguette serves up various baked items including cakes. We only tried the cakes, so we cannot really comment on the rest of the items. The cakes were all sponge cakes, which were nice and light. The bar cake was disappointing and tasted very different from the actual cakes. Prices are reasonable, but overall taste is a bit lacking. If you are in the area, you may want to give Paris Baguette a try, but I would not set expectations too high.
