An average bakery. Not too many choices. I tried a few cookies and cannot say I was impressed. Perhaps something else they sell is better? A few places to sit but not much atmosphere. Can't say I feel any need to go back.

If you are planning a visit to Downtown Bakery & Creamery, be aware that the only sign for the business is a small sign on their front window, so it is very difficult to find if you are not familiar with the area. This bakery was recommended in a tour book that we purchased for our visit to wine country,... More

The baked items are solid, nothing special (try Costeaux for something a bit more pricey but superior). What got me was the poor & disorganized service, and charging for hot water - even if you bring your own cup! Loud, total lack of ambiance. Won't go back.

The lines can be off putting but don't let that stop you. Delicious bakery items inside! Not much outdoor seating available so walk across the street to the park.

If you stop off here, definitely try some of their homemade ice cream. The Meyer lemon sherbet is absolutely delicious, as long as you're willing to try something tangy. Their pastries are also wonderful; all in all, we would highly recommend this place.

We stopped in for breakfast. Had tea, carrot cake muffin and sour cherry gallette. Everything was fresh and delicious! Even the orange jasmine tea was good. We will definitely be back again.

Don't pass up a chance to try one of the most delicious croissants you have ever tasted. Light and flaky on the outside and soft yet dense on the inside. Latte's were so good as well!

We were searching for a truly elegant birthday cake and we found it. I have no idea what it is called but it is four layers of light chocolate with frothy whipped filling and hazelnuts. The 8' cake is frosted in chocolate with white paisley designs all over. Such a work of art and unlike any cake we have ever... More

I'm on a local volunteer fire dept with Kathleen's husband- this is a genuinely good spot- get a sticky bun before they put you in the ground!!
