This was always my family’s favorite place to go for sandwiches. However when I went this weekend after about a months absence, their sandwich menu is considerably more limited. The roast beef and Gorgonzola are gone. Croissants were no longer a bread sandwich option. When...More

So glad we found Larkspur’s Rustic Bakery. Fantastic food and great variety at very reasonable prices. The breakfast sandwich is to die for, amongst other delictables. It’s cute, rustic and has a lovely ambience. Lunch is as good as breakfast/brunch. If you happen to fancy...More

Rustic Bakery has an excellent salad selection and reasonable sandwich selection albeit a bit pricey. The pastries are outstanding but again somewhat on the high side. While the staff try to be attentive, the staff's lack of knowledge of how to use their computerized check...More

Rustic Bakery's creations are delicious! Fresh, often local ingredients and rotating seasonal options keep you coming back for more. Amazing salads, yummy sandwiches and really nice soups are part of the daily menu. Bakery items and special holiday treats are all worth stopping in for....More

Locally sourced and local owners. Really good for just about anything - baked goods, breakfastofferings. Just stay away from the green eggs and ham panini. Clever name, but poorly executed. The prosciutto was just wadded onto the bread and was waaay salty. Salads are really...More

It's a lunch place too. It's a sandwich place where you order food and find a place to sit. For a few years, I lived in an apartment near them and ate there pretty frequently. Their food is interesting. Rather than spinach/mushroom quiche, they have...More
