Great Breakfast Sandwiches

So glad I tried this place on our first day! This was a great place to pick up breakfast to go, their breakfast sandwiches were so delicious. They also have fresh fruit and lunch items as well.

We visited here because we saw them on the best thing I ever ate for their English Muffins. They did not disappoint. If you come you must try one.

We visit the bakery in February 2015 and was very pleased with it. The food was very good, great selection. Very interesting and fresh made things. It was very busy in the morning, but the service was fine.

Had the breakfast sandwich while my wife had the chorizo torta. Pretty tasty and filling. Latte was pretty good as well.

I'll start by saying it was worth the effort to find The Model Bakery, eat the most delicious english muffin I've ever had and wash it down with a great cup of coffee. I'd heard the hype and was curious. Glad I went to find it. The bakery is on the outside of the food mart building. On saturday morning... More

The Morning Bun is superb and second to NONE! I personally try to scheme a way to get more than 6 of their English Muffins. Everyone I serve them to loves them, including me!

Great place to grab a cup of coffee with their famous english muffins. I am sure they are 1200 calories but I don't care. They serve Blue Bottle coffee which is great. Several types of bread and pastries available as well as pre made sandwiches and salads if you are headed out to taste some wine. The last time we... More

We googled this bakery and it showed up as a good GF option. I had a choice of one muffin and a fruit cup. No options. My husbands gluten filled pastry was good. No seating indoors.
