“Franny and Barbara Rock!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

We were fore warned before leaving Ct. that this was the place to go when in town. I pre-chatted with Franny via email b/4 arriving to be sure we would be there when the doors opened on Saturday, after a drive up the coast, arriving in SF the previous eve. Within the first 10 minutes of opening that Saturday, there was a line out the small blue door with faithful followers and opera-goers-to-be, across the street, via live feed from the Met. We snatched up anything that shined of sugar or smelled of cheese; cookies, tarts, quiches, bread and croissants. The next two days we dined like royalty; sweet, salty, flaky or savory, all was the best ever, and I have had fine bakery fare from Paris to New York. This was over the top and served with love and kindness. I could taste the love in every bite. Cannot imagine ever tasting and experiencing anything better, ever. thanks Franny and Barbara, for sharing yourself with your fellow folk. By the way, hours/days are limited and the goods sell out fast, go early or be disappointed!

“Lovely Bakery!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

This place has the most amazing pastries and cookies. Then there are the cakes and pizza!! WOW!! Do not miss this place. Just look for the bright blue building in the center of town. We bought treats on a Thursday and drove all the way back down on Friday and did it all over again. The people there are a wonder and so friendly. You need to stop there if you get to Point Arena

“Great bakery”

This is basically a bakery but the best there is in the area. Try it when in the mood for something sweet.

if you go here, you won't be sorry. Best around. Worth the stop on the way, and worth going OUT of your to get here.

“Special Treats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

We stopped in for some breakfast pastries. However, what we found were some excellent looking desserts. They looked wonderful, but not for breakfast. This would be a place to go for the special dessert!
