Goody Goodness. When you visit a bakery, mid day, pandemic has everybody frustrated, and that bakery is hopping with customers, you know you’re in for a treat. And not just tourists. Local types. From The Hill. Getting their cheese cake slab fixes and sort of...looking at tourists like, “you tourists are in the way, but this stuff is good and we’ll tolerate you.” We went for a loaf of bread to eat with meat and cheese from Volpi. Ended up buying a bunch of stuff and ALLof it was outstanding. Can’t wait to tast the slab of cheese cake with my coffee! They call it a “slab”. And it looks like a slab! And yes, just order a box of cookies to knosh later!More

Was visiting the Hill for lunch and stumbled across this great little bakery. It was the ultimate finish to a great meal at a nearby restaurant. In CA it is hard to find little gems like this. Looking forward to the next visit so I...can some great treats!!More

I have been a patron of MO Baking Company for many years. It is a tradition for my family to eat on the Hill and then grab some goodies at the bakery before we leave town. Today I had the privilege of meeting the owner....She was a very helpful and kind lady who is worried about whether or not she is making the right decision about staying open. I told her I thought that her policy was adequate and she should stay open. She then told me that someone had called the store today and used all sorts of profanity with her for staying open. I say shame on them. This is a top rate establishment with an impeccable product and customer service. Thank you for what you do.More

They have dozens of varieties of cookies, breads and cakes. I almost always get macaroons because theirs set the bar. I guess you can get coconut ones, but the ones I get are almond. The last time I was there, they still weren't taking credit...cards so HEADS UP.More

I got my holiday cookies here. It was a box of assorted cookies about 3 pounds or so. They sell them by the pound, not dozen. It was different for us as I usually bake. I think getting cookies from Missouri Bakery will be our...new tradition. They are yummy! Have a great variety to choose from, saves time & when I add up the cost of baking cookies myself- Missouri Bakery isn’t that expensive. Get their early as it’s a very popular place!!More

All I can say is WOW. The little bakery has a fantastic selection of pastries and cookies. I literally had to have an assortment of cookies sold by the pound and the snowball and creampuff pastry is to die for.

This place was nothing of what I thought it'd be, but goodness there are a lot of great cookies! There was even a line at 1 pm on a Friday.
