The pastries are gorgeous and delicious. The coffee is also great. The staff is warm and friendly. It overlooks the square in the heart of Sonoma. AND they have gluten free options too. What is not to love?

We were staying in Sonoma for the month of February and walked to the bakery almost every morning for an espresso and pastry. The espresso was always hot and their coffee was very easy on the palette, the pastries were always good.

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".
