Don't go to the strorefront...it's not open for retail business!

Although their bread is good and can be obtained in various grocery stores and farmer's markets, the store on Franklin Street is not open for the public...so don't make a speial trip to the store. I didn't find the bread at the city's Safeway market...however, it can be found at the Purity Market... read more

Wonderful bread. They have such a great selection. You will find what your looking for. The smell of bread baking will make you want to buy one of each.

If you are a pastry junky like me, don't miss the farmer markets. FB Bakery only bakes their phenomenal pastries and cookies for the FB and Mendocino farmers markets: Wednesday 3-6 in Fort Bragg; Friday noon-2 in Mendocino. That's it. As others noted, they're a wholesale business now. (They didn't seem to have a reliable enough worker base, according to... More

The Bakery itself is closed to retail customers but we buy from the bakery at Harvest Market or on Wednesday afternoons at the Fort Bragg Farmer's Market (seasonal). This place makes great bread, cookies, etc.. Whatever they make is damn good!!

Fort Bragg Bakery in its latest incarnation was the best pastry and coffee place in maybe the history of the world. My wife and I have been wearing sackcloth and ashes since it closed (because it was I understand was just too much for family and staff.)

This place served the best lunches in town, great pizzas, an interesting salad trio every day ... and baked stuff to die for. The owners decided they just want to bake and do markets. The restaurant is closed. Still bakes the best bread on the Coast -- the Austrian Seed Bread and Caspar Sourdough make this bread-baker jealous. Get them... More

They used to serve breakfast and lunch, but no longer do. Now they only bake bread and deliver it to the various groceries wholesale. The bread is good, but we don't have a 'real' bakery anymore- just the bigger groceries and their frozen dough.
