The smell of this bakery is wonderful, yeasty and sweet. If you can get past the pies and cookies, they also make excellent sandwiches. I had a roast beef with melted swiss, peppers and condiments on toasted sourdough. I highly recommend it. Finished the visit off with a selection of cookies to take with me. Easy parking. Reasonable prices. Relaxed... More

We had heard about their pot pie and decided to bring one home. You purchase it fresh/frozen and bring it home and put it the oven. Sure enough a dang good chicken pot pie, all kinds of yummy veggies inside, green beans, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots and a perfect amount of chicken. Big enough for 4-6 depending on how hungry...

This is like a old time Bakery. They bake pies, cakes and cookies. The cakes are excellent. The service is not that great but worth putting up with.

We got three bakery items for $8. They were just ok. We don't need to go back for just bakery items.

I am sorry I know this long time institution has a fan base, but I just don't care for their style of ingredients. Lots of lard in the basic dough and too much sugar. A bit over priced. $19.50 for a bland fruit (?) pie? Lard cookies? It's not my cup of tea.

My family and I are not from Truckee, Ca. Being tourists, we took a chance and ordered what we thought would be a delectable Christmas treat. Upon arrival on a cool winters' night we entered said bakery with the upmost hopes of a professionally decorated cake. We were greeted by a man who barely spoke English that I will, for... More

I waited 5-10 for someone to come out and take my order. When he did he had returned from washing dishes and did not wash his hands. . I ordered 4 donuts.. over $5 everyone of them was stale. I Even Heated them in Microwave And Still no luck. Honestly dry and old tasting. Will never return.
