“Good sandwiches and donuts”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We came here for a small lunch. The sandwich was tasty and decently priced, although it didn't have very much meat in it. The cookie that came with it wasn't all that great, but the samples of donuts that they had out were really good.

“A fun place to get fat”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

The Solano Baking Company is a small, corner store in an open-air shopping center, in the corner store down from the Safeway. It is a family-owned business which opened in 1981, and, from the crowd at 10:00 AM on a Wednesday, is pretty popular.

And with good reason. The food is all home-made, and is very fresh (except for the "one day old" bags of donuts for $1 - such a dea!). They have all manner of goodies - donuts, muffins, scones, etc., and at lunch time, deli sandwiches. My wife had a white chocolate mocha coffee, and said it was outstanding - even better than Starbucks!

There are only two minor downsides to the place. First, it has a dated look inside. The tables and chairs are dark and old-looking, and uninspiringly square. It's more like work desks at a small library than a typical restaurant. It's a little kluged together, with stands supporting things for sale at scattered locations throughout the facility.

The second downside was the woman who waited on us. She was sort of neutral, and never smiled. Impersonal is the best word for her. As a customer, you want to be treated as more than a number by someone who looks actively interested in providing you with good customer service.

Those things aside, it's really a wonderful place to grab some coffee and a donut or muffing. With very little work and an updated decor, it could be nigh-on to untouchable.

“Tasty Treats”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

This is a great place for pastries and coffee. Have eaten here a couple of times while visiting the area. Donuts/pastries are fresh and the white chocolate mocha delicious.

“Don't Miss This Gem!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

They have some of the best donuts and cookies here that I've ever had! They also carry a nice selection of sandwiches on wonderful breads that they make right there. Forget about Subway! Lucky to have them a mile from where we live. Take the "Pitt School" exit here in Dixon, right in the Safeway shopping center area. Can't miss it.
