They were expensive 2 years ago. They got a bit of change in management I think about a year ago and prices went even higher! you basically have to pay over 4$ for a danish that is made of plain dough with bit of fruit jam in it. Almost every pastry is over $3.50. Yes, they look really good, and... More

This is by far the best bakery in Ellensburg and I would say it could easily compete with the best in Seattle or Portland. The bread is made daily and their sourdough and campagnolo are some of the best I've tasted. Hearty and delicious, obviously made with love! Great service and wonderful baked delectables. Stop in, you won't be disappointed!

Although this bakery didn't have a ton of variety, what they did offer was amazing! Great staff, too.

A must for every resident, College newcomer or passerby! The Downtowner is amazing! Reasonably priced, warm and fresh. Able to call ahead for large order. Open very early so you can stop before work

The pastries here are yummy - they're made with real ingredients, with no corners cut. But that quality is also VERY expensive! The cost is higher than many Seattle bakeries, more like New York City! Even the bottled tea starts at $2.50 for a 1/2 liter bottle... But apparently locals don't mind.

This is hands down the best bakery in town. You will need to get in early or risk finding your favorite item sold out.

Vinman's is a great bakery. Surprisingly, I got some of the best rye bread I've tasted at this little gem. Plus they have an excellent choice of wines and artisan cheese.

Vinman's cranks out a nice assortment of great breads and pastries fresh every day. It's small, locally-owned, and tucked away in a strip mall across from the CWU campus. This bakery would have a line out the door in the downtown of any big city.

There's no place to sit here. It's strictly a to-go operation. But everything is good. Fresh baked bread and pastries that are worthy of special occasions.
