WEEKEND GETAWAY IN SONOMA: November 20, 2010
Enrique and I walked into this bakery from the pouring rain after wine-tasting across the street. The folks at Freestone Vineyard insisted that we not miss this place during our visit. And I am so grateful that they pointed us to this cute little bakery.
We were greeted by a wood-fire oven, the smell of freshly made bread and loaves of artisan bread piled high on a country table.
This place is rustic, cozy and full of country charm. And packed with the freshest wood-fire baked bread right out of the oven.
We just had a big brunch at Howard's Station Cafe and about to have dinner in 3 hours at Rocker Oysterfeller but we could not resist the aroma of fresh pastries and newly brewed coffee.
We missed out on the pumpkin bread but we settled for a warm STICKY BUN. When we were told it was $6.50, my immediate thought was "Oh-oh! This better be really good!"
But I was handed a ginormous dense fragrant-smelling bun that was very delicious with sticky molasses, cinnamon, cloves and a hint of orange! This bun could easily feed 4 people!
I fell in love with this country bakeshop with the fresh artisan breads. I really would like to go back!
