During a day trip to Sonoma Valley, we stopped for coffee while walking around the square in Sonoma. The place was very busy, so we had to wait in line. Seems like a favorite spot for locals and tourists alike.

Bread and pastries the way they should be! Not to be missed! Nice coffee too! The line moves quickly, but get there early to avoid the crowds!

This is the go to for tourists AND locals. The pastries are delicious, and the staff works like a well oiled machine to move patrons through. I had a delicious croissant, and my friend wouldn't stop taking about the "morning bun".

If you love bread, this is the place for you. Huge selection which makes choosing difficult. You can tell this place is good because the locals are regulars as well as visitors. Should not be missed.

Bought an olive sourdough loaf of bread to enjoy in the square with our wine and was totally disappointed in the quality. Not only was it not sourdough, but twice I bit into olive pits and darn near broke a tooth. Stick to the pastries...More
