Cranberry Buttermilk Scone was absolutely perfect...nice ratio of cranberry to scone, perfect amount of sugar on top. Loved every bite. Breakfast sandwich, meh..... certainly a great English muffin but filling was blah.

Fresh and tasty breads. Pretty good selection and they will slice for you as well. Expresso bar inside too. I suggest the calamata olive bread and the wheat bread.

The day after you have hit the winery's, roll out of bed and take a walk. They have great coffee and an amazing assortment of scones, pastries....to go with it. While you are there, grab your bread for lunch or dinner, don't wait, the good stuff will be gone later. The Fatted Calf next door opens at 9, come back... More

All of the pastries and baked goods are delicious! Fresh, fresh, fresh! There's a very good assortment of sandwiches and salads and they always taste fresh, too, with interesting seasonings and dressings. This is the place to go for a quick breakfast or to pick up goodies for a great picnic.

We stayed at the Westin down the street and walked to The Model Bakery specifically for the english muffins -they did not disappoint! They're the perfect combination of fluffy and flaky - paired with a good jam or just butter (yummy)!

The English muffins and tuna sandwiches are very very good, in fact almost anything they serve is delicious. I sometimes resist going in there as the staff is so often indifferent, unhelpful or snippy. I'll sometimes specifically go in to ask for a tuna sandwich and am told we aren't serving that today, The items they have or don't have... More

If you want to have one of the best English Muffins/Breakfast sandwiches you have ever tasted, make your way to Model Bakery at the Oxbow Market. Place was amazing, and the food was awesome, and fresh!

My wife and I found this breakfast gem. There was a line but the wait was worth it. Their English muffins are amazing but I had the chipotle sandwich and a custard Danish which were amazing.

The breads and pastries are generally very good to excellent, though perhaps slightly over-priced due to the bakery's proximity to the popular, but also pricey, Ox Bow market place. Best to get there early for certain favorites like the walnut-cranberry whole wheat round loaf, or they will run out too quickly... and be prepared to stand in long lines along... More
