Yummy!

Visited here as a first stop of the Epicurean Excursions tour to try their famous English Muffin. Wow! Not your typical grocery store muffin at all! Like a thick slice of homemade bread, yet when toasted it has that lovely crunch. Add butter and local honey and you are in heaven! After that... read more

I had a plain bagel and soy hot chocolate here for breakfast last weekend it was yummy. The bakery gets very busy in the am but staff are efficient and the breads are SO worth it. We will be back again next year!

The Model Bakery serves great food and is just a fun place for breakfast. We both ordered the English muffin with egg, cheese, and bacon. It was delicious! I got a yummy cheese Danish and he got a huge cinnamon roll. We also enjoyed sitting at the tables outside and people watching. Be sure to go early because they sell... More

It was 4pm before we made it to the Model Bakery in St. Helena to try their highly rated English muffins but they still warmed them up for us and served them with delicious jam. I am not a huge English muffin fan but THESE are melt in your mouth, light and airy to die for muffins. I am still... More

These are NOT your everyday english muffins... have one with homemade jam, or get a breakfast sandwich. We suggest going with a friend/significant other... get a few items and split... you will be HAPPY! The pastries and breads are simply amazing... NOTE: you can only get 6 english muffins to go! Make sure you get a half dozen, they freeze... More

I like English muffins, but this place has ruined me for grocery store brands. Light and fluffy with a crispy exterior and pockets to hold melted butter or jam. So good, we're going back for more tomorrow. Picnic tables out front for leisurely morning nosh.

A friend was happy to bring a group of us to the bakery and people do rave about the English muffins. They are good, not spectacular enough to wait in line, but good. They are served with preserves and buttery. That was all we ordered with coffee. There is very limited seating.
