Great breakfast. Be sure to ask for the apricot and berry jams along with the butter. We bought one of each scone to go. Couldn't resist. They look so good. Coffee is just okay even though other reviewers seemed to love it. No indoor seating....More

Cranberry Buttermilk Scone was absolutely perfect...nice ratio of cranberry to scone, perfect amount of sugar on top. Loved every bite. Breakfast sandwich, meh..... certainly a great English muffin but filling was blah.

Fresh and tasty breads. Pretty good selection and they will slice for you as well. Expresso bar inside too. I suggest the calamata olive bread and the wheat bread.

We stayed at the Westin down the street and walked to The Model Bakery specifically for the english muffins -they did not disappoint! They're the perfect combination of fluffy and flaky - paired with a good jam or just butter (yummy)!

The English muffins and tuna sandwiches are very very good, in fact almost anything they serve is delicious. I sometimes resist going in there as the staff is so often indifferent, unhelpful or snippy. I'll sometimes specifically go in to ask for a tuna sandwich...More

If you want to have one of the best English Muffins/Breakfast sandwiches you have ever tasted, make your way to Model Bakery at the Oxbow Market. Place was amazing, and the food was awesome, and fresh!

My wife and I found this breakfast gem. There was a line but the wait was worth it. Their English muffins are amazing but I had the chipotle sandwich and a custard Danish which were amazing.
