Yum!

Stopped by and had a chocolate cherry almond cookie which was so good. Never had anything like it before. Would have wanted to get more pastries because everything looked yummy but was too full from just having had brunch.

Seriously, this place has lines out the doors on weekends and holidays. It's known for it's delicious baked goods and people come from all over.

Stopped in while walking the town to stretch or legs and we were pleasantly surprised. This small-town bakery was very impressive with a delicious morning bun, pumpkin and walnut scone, and coffee. The only drawback is they don't serve espresso.

We stopped by this charming bakery on a scenic drive through the area and were pleasantly surprised. Their coffee was very good and their pastries tasty. We were told the Morning Bun was their specialty and were very impressed with it.

The pastries aren't anything to write home about aside from the sheer size of them. It's a great place to stop for a cyclist or on your road trip to/from the coast. Definitely try the pizza of the day as it is always a hit. Coffee only, no espresso drinks. Great outdoor seating especially when the weather is nice. Short... More

It was a quick trip for a scone and a coffee. The scone was the best I've had - quite large too. I'll be back.

There was a little bit of a line to get into the small room and place our order, but it was worth the wait! Delicious pastries and great coffee.

So many good breads and pastries . Being local this is one of our faves. Chose a pastry or bread and hit the coast or the lovely Tomales bay beaches.

we had just finished breakfast and were walking around when we saw the line of people waiting out the door. Had to know what was so attractive, OMG! My husband bought a bear claw that was big enough to feed a family and so fresh and moist. Best I've ever had. try it you won't be disappointed.
