Food is good both in quality and selection. You will not be disappointed. Outside seating on a warm day is a pleasant and welcome experience in the shade of trees if you hit the right spot. The downside is it can be really busy with an order line reaching to the door

Bakery products and food are excellent. But no one is paying attention to service or cleanliness. Tables and ground around them were not cleaned. Staff passed by several times, and was asked to clear used dishes and food from table so we could use it, but didn't. We moved the dishes to another table with dirty dishes, where they all... More

I come here occasionally for coffee and a sweet treat. Quality is assured and consistent, the croissant bread pudding divine, great Meyer lemon croissant. Prices are on the high side but justified for quality. Generally friendly staff. BUT (and this is a big one): no customer wifi? That is taking Marin quaint a bit too far.

A friend of mine discovered this little cafe and we went there for lunch. Everything is organic fresh and one really nice touch is the cucumber and lime flavored water at the utensil station. I had the chicken sandwich ( Vietnamese version) very good! My friend had a huge Caesar salad. The desserts looked great but too full to sample.... More

Recommended by a local friend, we made a quick stop on our way to the airport. Hubby had their steel cut oats which were more like the Irish/English porridge we love so much. I had a yogurt pot which was the perfect combo of fruit, nuts, honey, and plain yogurt. Oh and great coffee too

Our third visit to this wonderful busy brunch and afternoon tea establishment. We were too late to have an early breakfast this visit so coffee and muffins and cakes were the order of the day. Will not miss returning next time we visit our new Grand Daughter.

I LOVE Rustic Bakery! Once again we have the locally sourced theme, the food is organic. They create so many wonderfully unique items. They make this awesome flat bread crackers in different flavors like Rosemary or Parmesan Cheese. They crackers recently became well known when they received media coverage when served to Pope Francis on his visit to the U.S.... More

This is an easy go to place to meet a friend for coffee or lunch. You can splurge calorie-wise on their croissants, or large array of other pastries, or choose a salad. There are a few tables outside so on a nice day you can sit outside. Usually I can find parking very close on the street, although certain times,... More
