Holy cow! Hanging out in the small town of Point Reyes I heard so many recommendations for Bovine Bakery. I had to go check them out. Just a tiny little shop down the road, two benches out front, and baked goods. I parallel parked on the street and headed in to see it for myself.
This bakery screamed LOCAL! I was thrilled to interview them. They have stunning photos of wildlife on the walls. A rack of private mugs so locals can have their cup when they stop in. The stir sticks were pieces of uncooked pasta, cost-efficient and better for our Earth. And half-price muffins, french pastries, and scones after 4:30 PM each weekday.
I went up to the counter and met Rosa. I told her I would like to order one of those yummy looking walnut brownies and she told me she would pick me out a good one. I conducted a quick interview with her before a rush of people came pouring in. Bovine Bakery got its name because the owner has a lot of ranches full of cows. It made a lot of sense because the cow theme ran deep in here, with tiles on the floor, pictures on the walls, and even in their logo. It’s been here for over 27 years serving quiches, pizza, pastries, and a wide variety of drinks, including coffee. She was so friendly, I was glad I stopped here.
I ended up eating the brownie a few hours later as I headed up the coast. It was delicious and moist. Make sure you save room for one when you visit!
Don’t have a cow… but there isn’t a public restroom from what I could tell.
