The Village Baker is more than just a bakery. Of course, their baked goods are exquisite-scones just right and variety of breads tasty. But go for breakfast (all day) or lunch. Eat at the bar-no wait; full menu and plenty of room there. The pulled...More

We are glad you had an overall positive experience, we will be sure to speak with our servers so they are not "pushy" when it comes to what should be a drink suggestion!

For lunch we ordered pizza and chicken salad sandwich/soup combo. Both were satisfactory. The atmosphere was cozy and our server was attentive. Sadly, nothing stood out that would draw us back for a return visit.

Description
The Village Baker opened July 2011 with Sara Rathbun & Oran Rankin serving locally sourced homemade food. Our founders wanted to create an eclectic atmosphere that would bring our community together through delectable dishes and casual dining. Since then, our chefs have been serving both quality interpretations of classic dishes and new ventures into the uncharted territories of food. The Village Baker's interior, filled with second hand and hip sensibilities, was pieced together by Sara herself and reflects the beautiful and romantic style of our surrounding area. The restaurant offers choices of comforting custom pizzas, perfectly unique bread options, and memorable sandwich combinations. Spanning across menus that delve into breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you'll be sure to find exactly what you were looking for in a small town restaurant.
