Everything, from the coffee to the pastry's are delicious. Staff is efficient and patient as there are just so many choices. Next door is a park to enjoy your coffee and breakfast. Vegetarian, Vegan, Whole Wheat, Gluten Free, Vegan Whole Wheat (my favorite) are all available. Speciality items change daily encouraging you to come back. Only suggestion I have for... More

Although this bakery is famous for its scones I always get an oatmeal chocolate chip cookies after a hike or run in the park....for 27 years!

Brief encounter--only had a cup of coffee and a croissant. Coffee was fresh and pretty good. Croissant was huge but only marginally flakey and a little bit tough. Breads looked very good, so maybe that's the way to go.

We were amazed by the quality of the scones at this place, which is conveniently open early for folks passing through on their way north/south or to Point Reyes. My recommendation is to buy a box and eat them all day long-- one for breakfast, one for lunch, one after dinner for dessert. Both the blueberry scone and the blackberry... More

This bakery is popular on the weekends with a line going out the door. We tried the gluten free muffin and it was quite good.

Bovine Bakery is a hole in the wall with truly great pastries. What would you expect in the rustic area of Point Reyes Seashore? This place is not Starbucks so coffee is just coffee here. The pastries are delightful and huge. They are all natural, organic, and probably someone's homemade recipes. Get there early, as by afternoon, the selection is... More

I'm not a big bakery fan as I'm gluten-free but they did have GF items and they were good, but not as good as the muffins and scones that my DH raved about for 2 days. We went back again at the end of our vacation. Doesn't look like much and when you look in the case you think, "that's... More

Everything I've ever had at the Bovine Bakery has been outstanding. I am always proud to introduce my friends to this lovely place, and I have never been disappointed. The baked goods (clearly baked on the premises) are delicious, and free of the chemicals and dough conditioners that pollute baked items from other venues. Some of the goodies are actually... More

A great small bakery where you can get great bakery goods and small pizzas. Get bread to enjoy while shucking fresh local oysters. A nice place to stop for a break before going to the lighthouse. Sit our front on their bench and watch the world go by while sipping coffee.

If you are with 30 miles of here, you had better make your way here for your morning coffee and scone (or muffin or whatever perfect other breakfast-y treat they have baked up. It is a small storefront, so plan to enjoy your coffee in the beautiful Point Reyes morning light in the small park at the end of the... More
