Don't even think of passing by the Red Apple Bakery and Fruit Stand without stopping. The heavenly scent of fresh baked pies and tarts is the first thing you'll notice when you get out of the car. You can buy pastries and consume them at the outdoor picnic tables, or take with you to enjoy when you get to your... More

We always stop at this place on our way back to the bay area from Arnold. The pastries are awesome and my only regret is when they are sold out (or between batches) of the apple turnovers. We always get the cider and turnovers, but have also tried the apple dumplings and pies happily. They also have fresh apples and... More

On our way back from the Big Tree State Park, we stopped by for some hot cider. It was rainjng, but we did not care. We sat in the car, drinking our hog cider and eating apple donuts. Great place to stop and smell the apples.

I read reviews about Darby's and took the recommendations about the amazing pulled pork. I ordered 4 trays for my group of 15--and it was great! However, we could have gotten by with two trays. We had plenty to eat on for days. Also ordered two app,e pies-and they were as delicious as they were beautiful. Of course, the cider... More

We go to Arnold a couple of times a year and stopping here on the way in is a must for us. They have a good selection of local fruit when in season and a great selection of baked apple products. We always have to buy an apple strudel to have with breakfast.

We did a quick stop for some Applesauce donuts. Worth the beautiful drive up Highway 4. It was a quickie for us...looked at their food items, bought a dozen apple donuts and took off again. We were a loud, boisterous group of 6 ladies and the girl behind counter was patient with our ohhs and ahhs.

Love their strawberry jam! Pick up a couple of jars every time we visit. The pies are DeLicious! And my favorite is their apple cinnamon doughnuts! Grab a dozen a go!
