“Baked goods heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We stood in line on a Sunday afternoon with a number of others to "look" at what they had. Everything was so visually appealing it was difficult to stop myself once I started ordering. All three items I bought were every bit as good as they looked!

“Yes, it's really that good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The first day we tried an Oh Oh (their version of a Ho Ho), and it was delicious. Imagine the decadence of Hostess paired with fine ingredients and presentation. Even my husband, who doesn't much care for chocolate, had a hard time sharing.

The second day we picked up one of the famous chocolate-almond croissants. Oh. My. What black magic are they working behind those doors? It truly was the best croissant either of us has ever had. The pastry and filling were incredible, and it was almost like there was a layer of toffee or something.... It was just amazing.

The service was also delightful, and we enjoyed the outdoor seating. A must-do if you're anywhere near, and they're even open late (for a bakery), till seven or so.

“Great coffee and baked goods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I used to love stopping by the outpost of Bouchon Bakery in the Time Warner Center in NYC, and enjoyed the original in Yountville every bit as much. There's a nice patio area for relaxing with a coffee, and the pastries are of very high quality. Stop by for a breather if you are nearby touring wine country.

“Enjoyable spot for lunch in Yountville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Had lunch here on a sunny summer afternoon. Great Rosé by the glass, and wonderful paté. Reasonable prices for a Keller establishment, and great patio for people watching on a summer afternoon.

“AS GOOD AS EXPECTED”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

The baked goods are worth the trip. The macarons are the best I have ever had. I would stop by every time I am in the Napa Valley.
