Leave your diet at the door. Great pastries. Great people!

The only negative thing I could say about this little gem is well...it's little and a bit crowded). But, if they have not sold out what you came for (we went first thing in the morning to get our favorites), you will not be disappointed.

Great bread and croissants. Four of us ate an entire loaf of delicious sour dough (with cheese from neighboring store, CowGirl) on an afternoon hike.

Highlight of the street :) This bakery offers a lot of delicious and treats, soups, quiches and pizza to choose from, including many gluten-free options, all made with clean ingredients. They offer a large selection of coffees and teas. They have a small seating area. Price is fair.

The line was out the door the whole time we were in town, but the wait wasn't too long. It was evident that the ingredients were fresh and of high quality. The selection was fantastic for the middle of the day on a Saturday. We shared a sugar cookie and a peanut butter blondie. Both were perfectly delicious. They also... More

Very small place but well worth waiting in line for. Got the morning buns, although the bun was heavy it was so deliciously sweet. Also had a pastry with bits of apples, cinnamon and raisins and it was soooo.....tasty. I only wish there was a Bovine's closer to home.

Context: a friend brought us take away and then we also stopped in. We tried the ham and cheese croissant, the cinnamon bun and the chai. We have been here before and also have had the pizza. All these choices were good. I am not a big fan of squishy, soft french pastry and prefer the tartine style of sort... More

A very popular stop and rather small but it's worth the wait for their homemade pastries. It was suggest to our group that we make sure that the Sticky Buns are heated before serving and it worked out great.

We stopped in on the way to hike Tomales Point Trail to get some pastries. Everything we get was pretty good and everything they sold was huge. You see $3.00 a pastry but for how big a pastry you get its priced correctly. If I was going through town again I would stop and get something.

This is a favorite stop when I am riding my bike in Marin County. The downtown of Point Reyes Station is 1 block long and brings me back in time. Hitchcock’s “The Birds” was filmed here. At certain times of the year the big tree across from the bakery has a ton of migratory birds in it (not this past... More

What a great place to start your Saturday morning! The selection of baked goods is overwhelming! Better get there early to make sure you get what you want!
