Perfect for a quick breakfast with a large assortment of pastries and even some cooked to order hot items too. Espresso, tea and cakes oh my! Also a nice place to grab lunch.

Good bread, delicious cookies, and warm staff. Skip bouchon and head to either of the great model bakery locations.

Wonderful bakery full of homemade pastries and breads - A great spot to start your St Helena visit - and right on Main Street.

I had heard about their English muffins before our trip, and boy were they worth the drive! So perfect and decadent! Of course, we sampled their other baked goods as well...

We had breakfast here almost everyday during our stay. The food was very yummy. Be prepared if you go during the weekend it gets very busy and will have to wait in line.

This is a St Helena standby. Love the bread. The English Muffins are simply amazing. The sandwiches are great. Here is the downside - avoid the tourist rush after 10am on weekends and get there when the locals do. The weird order system for the coffee drinks overloads with the tourists, so avoid it. The bread is great and lots... More

We stopped here for coffee and scones on our way through town. Excellent latte and delicious scones. This was worth stopping. I would come back here again.
