We visited this bakery downtown after staying in Sonoma the night before, on our way to visit a few wineries for the day. The staff here were not at all friendly or welcoming. They didn't even offer to warm our breakfast pastries. I previously worked...More

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.

Pretty traditional choices for French breakfast and lovely choices in the bakery. Nice outdoor patio and counter if its crowded. Also seems to have a cast of local regular locals that make it an even more pleasant experience.

Suggested by a friend for morning visit, she had been to the Sonoma cafe. It wasn't full, but all the hard services made it hard to talk. I had a scone--this is supposed to be a specialty bakery, so I expected a gourmet treat; it...More
