When I first moved to town, Downtown was a go-to for me. The quality of the baked goods (in the AM at least) is just incredible... but there are far too many mistakes made by the staff on a regular basis. Gave up trying to give them chances. Not worth it... Try Costeaux for savory baked goods and mustache for... More

Costeaux has great pastry & good coffee, Flying Goat has good pastry & great coffee - but over the years, Downtown Bakery has become our favorite way to jump start the day in Healdsburg with caffeine, a doughnut muffin, sticky bun or other treat, & a welcoming, down-home vibe. Everyone here seems to be in a good mood, including staff... More

I get a savory tart at least once a week from the counter. Sticky buns are incredible. Everything about this bakery is exceptional.

My wife and I stopped on the way out of Santa Rosa. We had the quiche and a pastry. The quiche were very flavorful and the Donut muffin was one of the better breakfast sweets I've had. The staff was friendly and attentive and the prices were very reasonable.

I visit this bakery every time I am in Healdsburg. Every morning the locals gather to enjoy fresh baked pastries and fresh brewed coffee. Weekends often there is a line out the door but service is quick and the staff efficient and friendly. Prices are reasonable. Sandwiches available for take out. Consistently good. Discount at the end of the day... More

Been going to this place for 10 yrs or so on our annual visits to the wine country. Absolutely to die for pastries - buttery croissants, sticky buns, savory English pasties. Limited breakfast & lunch items...but quality items. E.g. poached eggs on polenta, blackberry pancakes, Sandwiches, quiches etc. good coffee + espressos. Sometimes a bit crowded.

My husband and I enjoyed some great sweet treats here. I highly recommend the chocolate cream pie, fruit galette, and lemon curd tart. The pastry is so flaky and crisp and the fillings are very fresh. The coffee was also very good. We'll be back!

An average bakery. Not too many choices. I tried a few cookies and cannot say I was impressed. Perhaps something else they sell is better? A few places to sit but not much atmosphere. Can't say I feel any need to go back.

If you are planning a visit to Downtown Bakery & Creamery, be aware that the only sign for the business is a small sign on their front window, so it is very difficult to find if you are not familiar with the area. This bakery was recommended in a tour book that we purchased for our visit to wine country,... More
