Just say yes!!!

Stopped in for the sourdough (they make it for a restaurant a few doors down called Stellina) but not available on Mondays & Wednesdays. The morning buns are to die for and the ginger cookies are huge, soft and very good, a mild combo of flavors. The lemon bars were calling me but I had to draw the... read more

This small place always is crowded. They have good bread, some great cookies and pies that aren't too sweet. They sell out of things quickly, so getting here early is imperative.

Bay Area has a lot of excellent bakeries, and the Bovine Bakery easily ranks among the best. Each time we visit the Point Reyes area or just pass through on our way to the Sonoma or Mendocino coasts, we stop at this bakery for their excellent pastries and cakes. There is a large variety to choose from, including Gluten Free... More

Give it a 5 stars really , mainly bakery products , your croissant are out of this world , juices are mostly Gluten Free , they offer regular American coffee or you can get an Espresso if you wish so.

Not to mention the incredible cinnamon rolls, Apple cakes and other sweet bakery items, Try the soup! Try the soup! So yummy, on various occasions. It has great combo on flavors-- sweet potato, onion, green beans. Then, you get a savory scone (mushrooms, tomatoes) and dip it in the warm soup. Super tasty! There is a small park 2 doors... More

I don't usually buy muffins as I don't like greasy, soft muffins. I did buy an oat bran date almond muffin to try for breakfast as I read good reviews about this bakery. The muffin was very good. It had just the right amount of texture and it was not overly sweet. There was a generous amount of almond pieces... More

Stopped in for a snack after a hike along the dunes. Yum! We had both of the soups on offer that day plus a slice of the vegetarian quiche. Generous, filling and delish! Of course we couldn't resist something sweet, so we shared a lemon square and a piece of pie, both excellent. Took everything over to the picnic table... More

Whenever we are heading to Pt. Reyes National Seashore, we always stop in Pt. Reyes Station for coffee. The seashore is beautiful, and WINDY (sometimes!). Anyway, this is the go to place for coffee and pastries in this town - it seems! Always popular!
