They have buzzed on to sweeter places and are no longer with us. Perry's Deli is now the sole option here and a wonderful choice for take out or gourmet groceries.

Had delicious sticky roll and breads for breakfast when our B&B had crummy choices. Definitely would recommend. Baker was feeding us as well as taking items out of ovens, which was entertaining and reminded us how fresh our food was!

We enjoyed a mocha and raspberry turnover. Both were tasty and the service was friendly and welcoming.

We had sandwiches and pastries and all was fine until one party in my group needed to go to the bathroom. It was a portalet! The person was then sorry they ate there thinking how does anyone wash their hands.

We visited today and wished we hadn't. I had what promised to be a lovely sandwich chicken pesto and walnut, sounded great but in fact was mashed almost blended into a sandwich filling paste with so much mayo (?) it was awful. The service wasn't massively friendly, we have come to expect such good service here in the states and... More

A small space but what a treat. All the pastries made on site; a great spot to stop for breakfast. We especially liked the cinnamon rolls for their size (easy to split!) and the fact they were not over-the-top in icing. And the bearclaws were so good too. Friendly service, great pastries.

Last time, 6 months ago, we were greeted warmly, had a fun conversation and enjoyed generous tasty sandwiches. This time, surly service and sandwiches on day old croissants accompanied by a not very good peanut butter cookie. what a shame.

We just wanted a quick cup of coffee when my husband saw the sign for organic apple pie, so we made a U-turn and we were delighted! The owner was very welcoming and obviously takes pride in her shop. We decided to stay and order a slice of pie too (even though we were on our way to the Lighthouse).... More

If you go to the Pt. Reyes peninsula you have to stop at the Busy Bee Bakery. It is on the left side of the road (obviously, the right side is wetlands) and there are signs, so it is easy to find. Everything there is fresh and yummy. Ask the counter person what their favorite of the day is-- we've... More
