Although parking is always a problem in downtown San Rafael this delicious and multicultural bakery is worth the effort to find a place. The bakery has fresh pastry items as well as made to order sandwiches. You can eat in or out as the weather dictates.

Nice bakery collective. They always have many cookies, muffins, scones, focaccia and breads to choose from. Portions are generous and prices fair.

I love close to Arizmendi so I often come by for a cookie (great with lots of options), some foccacia bread (hard to find a great one) or a sandwich. I love the fact that they are a worker owner cooperative and that it is evident that this is a real live working bakery. The coffee and pastries are great... More

Once you find this place, you won't want to go to another bakery. Thy even have gluten free baked goods that are delicious and I am not gluten free. Really good coffee as well. I think it is Equator coffee.

I was led to this place by another finicky coffee drinker , and wasn't disappointed. . You don't need to get a fancy latte to get a good cup of coffee- just serve yourself from an urn. Good pastries, all made on the premises. Nice to support a place that is worker-owned

Really just a very limited experience, so please take that into mind with this review. I just came in to purchase a couple of pastries. I went on the basis of sweet rolls I saw on the online menu, but they did not have everything in stock or available that I saw listed on the menu I found online. I... More

the BEST CORN SCONEs w/ dried cherries, sounds weird but completely addictive, EXCELLENT COFFEE- better than Peets. Awesome atmosphere, happy, friendly place, wifi, love the people-watching, outside seating is great on a nice day, pizza & soups are excellent for a rainy day treat. The only bummer is that parking you sometimes need to circle a few times to get... More
