Wonderful place to have a breakfast or sandwich - just off 101 in Los Alamos. Huge French influence on the baked goods and bread including kouign-amann which is rarely found outside of western Brittany (France) - an intense buttery pastry which id to die for....More

We stopped at Bob's to grab some Sandwiches for a picnic. Standing in line, pouring over the copious menu proved to be quite the task. How to choose from the luscious choices??? We finally narrowed it down to the grill cheese for the kids -...More

So glad we heard about Bob's! We stopped here on our way to Ventura and again on the way back. Very much in the quality line of Tartine's in San Francisco. Not cheap, but worth every penny! Open Thursday through Monday, with a different selection...More

Fun environment, great coffee and pastries. I had the breakfast sandwich on their homemade English muffin. It was too thick to pick up and eat and I couldn't get the knife through it. Other than that, everything was great!

I was there to order a coffee and a pastry on a quick stop during my work day. The owner was in a bad mood about the road construction in front of his restaurant and decided to take it out on his customers. There are...More

This seems to be about the only real reason for most people to visit Los Alamos, a town so quiet I almost expected to see tumbleweeds blow by. But it is well worth it, the bakery goods are simply outstanding. Nice option for lunch on...More
