We popped in to take a peak because it was very appealing. Our purchase of an apple turnover and a few (ah hem) magic bars was delicious. They also offered other pastries and breads that were equally as tempting. If you take the main drag on to see the Mission at San Juan Batista, you'll miss the small block of... More

This plae is it! My friend suggested to visit after the mission. I was so curious since her aunt make it a point to stop here on the way home to Fresno from Carmel. Voila! I was not disappointed. If bread is vitamin I would have bought all of their baked goods that day. The place is squeaky clean and... More

Great local bakey with lots of pastries, homemade doughnuts, and a variety of sweet and savory breads. We loved the heaven bites- filled doughnut holes!

We went to San Juan Bakery. The outside was decorated for the Christmas holiday season. We purchased some peanut butter cookies. We also purchased an ice tea. Service was good. The bakery is located on 3rd street, which is the main shopping and dining street in San Juan Bautista.

I love almond poppy seed muffins but they are difficult to find. This bakery had almond poppy seed bread! It was delicious!

This bakery located in a historic building on 3rd Street has delicious pastries and sweet breads. The place was crowded and it took awhile to be waited on.

The Bakery has been at that location since before I was born in 1949. Growing up it was the town bakery and over the years has been an outstanding business. Currently the present owners offer more variety of breads than in back the 1950s. They make great apricot pie and the other bakery items are tasty. When I visit family... More

After a long day of browsing the stores and shops, this was a welcomed break. The bakery items are delicious and their 3 cookies for a dollar is a great deal.

I would have rated this 3.5 if possible: 4 for atmosphere and service, 3 for taste and selection. They specialize in breads, so don't expect to find a lot of fancy, high-end pastries here. But the staff is friendly and it's a fun place to visit if you want to feel like you've stepped back in time. Selection is somewhat... More

So glad to have our bakery. The French and Sourdough breeds are simply the best. You have to get there early because they do run out. My son loves the guava turnovers. A definite stop when heading through San Jaun Bautista.
