“Famous for a reason!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This tiny bakery in Yountville CA (Napa Valley) is famous for good reason. It is arguably the best French pastry anywhere around. Light, flaky, delicious. Because it is so small there is almost always a line waiting. A few tables outside have to handle the guests. But wait we will. One bite of the heavenly pastries and you will be glad you came. I adore the almond croissants but pretty much anything you order will be a delight. Great coffee too.

“You're going to like this place!”

Some friends and I dropped by to sample the selection. Our group sampled everything from sandwiches to desserts, and everything was very tasty. This is a must stop while you're in Yountville!

“Delicious...worth a visit again and again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We visited the bakery twice during our recent visit to Yountville. Everything there was delicious and fresh baked daily. Incredible pastries, cookies, bread, and (we heard, but did not try) coffee. The staff is friendly, quick and helpful. The line looks long but moves very quickly. Our favorites were the pain de chocolat, the nutter butter cookie (really, try it), and the bouchons. Don't miss a visit here.

“Thomas Keller (The French Laundry) wonderful bakery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This place is great! But expect lines in the morning for pastries and coffee. Its worth the wait! It is just down the street from the world famous French Laundry and a wonderful place to people watch and have a great continental breakfast.
