Stayed in Pateros for one night, heard the music from the outside venue during the evening and walked down to check it out the next morning. Delighted to find a great, small town bakery with an impressive variety of fresh breads, pastries and coffee. Priced right, served by friendly locals, it's a great way to start the day.

We love the thin gluten-free pizza crust at Sweet River Bakery. Even better is the fresh toppings, from the Carne to the Ranchero! Be sure to stop and try it for yourself!

Wonderful grassy area between the building and the river. Some tables in the sun, some under large trees. They have music on the weekends. A nice local spot. Service is slow, but sandwiches are good. Beautiful view of the river.

Dakota just in time for the fire. Power was out in the store and all the meat and dairy products were toast. But they are recovering nicely. I... More

This bakery serves a great pizza. It's all homemade so expect a little wait. You can get it to go too.

Delicious baked goods - consistently high quality, rustic, flavorsome, and quite simply fantastic food. We always try to stop here when we are passing through. Thanks to this great bakery for first rate meals - a wonderful surprise in such a small town.

My husband & I walked over from our hotel for breakfast. We shared a cinnamon bun, and each got a coffee drink. It was over all great. It was a very popular attraction!

Really good, interesting food and great coffee. Delicious desserts, too. Perfect patio with a view of the lake out back that's the place for happy hour with draft pours. It's only a stroll away from Inn at Lake Pateros.
