Brilliant!

We ordered about five different kinds of pastries. The blueberry/plum mini pies were amazing! The pain au chocolat rocked! The sticky morning buns defy description! This place is a must visit!

Grabbed a loaf of sourdough for a picnic in the park and came back the next day for a loaf of apricot pecan and some cookies. Slightly disappointed that they didn't offer espresso drinks, but the baked goods were fantastic!

Perfect spot to "carb-up" after a nice, long ride. Great pastries, both sweet and savory varieties. Staff is always friendly

Coffee is downright good and pastries and quiche were great. Other lunch items looked good too. Clientele proved interesting to chat with.

A small place where you walk up to a counter and place your order. A few small tables and a counter looking out a window. Usually folks continue on their way, sit outside on a bench or on the edge of the sidewalk to enjoy their treat. They have coffee mugs stashed on a self that, I think, you can... More

Perfect small town bakery with a great variety of savory selections as well as sweets. The muffins are fresh and not too sweet.

This is my pit stop twice a week on my long bike rides. I've been coming here for years and only recently tried their gluten free muffins. Not that I'm gluten intolerant, but these are terrific! The staff is great, a special hello to Elsie and Laura!

We stop here every time we are in Point Reyes. The morning pastries are amazing. They have a good range of other baked products, and coffee. The outdoor bench and street scene is fun too (all the tourists and locals milling about, some dressed up, some down, all fun to see).

Stopped in for a snack late in the afternoon. This is a small and very popular bakery, pretty much just to take out, maybe a few stools by a counter. Their pizza by the slice was some of my best ever!

Don't plan to stop here for a quiet morning coffee. It is small and usually full of people with only 4 bar stools at the window. The pastries, scones morning buns, cookies etc are delicious. No doubt that's why its crowded. Coffee is excellent and the staff friendly. Well worth waiting in the line which moves quickly. There are 2... More
