Million Dollar Chocolate Chip Cookie

They have excellent breads, rolls but their chocolate chip cookie that I call 'Million Dollar Cookie' is the best ~ has nuts, coconut, chocolate bits and is out of this world delicious! I have to discipline myself to not go there as I could eat these cookies like you would eat peanuts ~ one... read more

Make sure you get there early. I got there about one o'clock and was SOL. Bought some homemade biscotti. Owner was very nice. Will try again. The biscotti was excellent.

Nothing complicated or exotic, just great fresh from the oven bread, rolls, cookies, scones to take out. This is not a restaurant or cafe. It's a bakery.

Ran in at 8:15 for a quick breakfast and they unfortunately only had scones ready. Absolutely worth it and they were incredible. I'm sorry I missed the other items. I'll definitely return.

I have been going to Alexandra's Bread since they opened almost 20 years ago, every single they make is OUTSTANDING!! I had a French man say to me once that the only legit French Baguette he had ever had in the USA was from Alexandra's. Their cobble bread loafs and buns are phenomenal, their chocolate biscotti with walnuts is amazingly... More

Alexandra's is an absolute must stop for those who love exquisite bread, cobbles, cranberry scones and cookies. Pack a few with thermos of coffee, hike to beach for breakfast or lunch. Life is complete. Get there early bc they sell out !

Adorable quaint shop selling, the best handmade scones, cookies, and amazing bread you will ever taste. Their products sell out daily. Anyone who visits our home requests a visit to this shop.

Peter says they have the best scones in town. When we are having company, we go there for bread, rolls etc. A husband and wife team arrive early to create and bake all the baked goods for the day. You have to arrive early, they sell out almost every day.

My husband considers himself a brownie aficionado. He's sampled brownies from bakeries and home kitchens everywhere. When he finally had a brownie from Alexandra's, he knew he'd tasted brownie nirvana. I think that holds true for all of their offerings. Shopping here is an experience, and I wonder why they've never been featured on Chronicle or similar shows. Not only... More

This is a local bakery that makes enough to sell all of their product everyday. The bread is the old fashioned style heavy bread. The schones are to kill for.
