While they have all the great usual baked goods and bread try their breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Many to choose from the wall menu. Only wish they would start lunch sandwiches before noon. How about 11 or 11:30?

We stayed at the Westin, which is really close to Model. Amazing breafkast - we came here everyday. Note that the bakery is very popular so expect long wait times. The part that sucked is that the bakery does not have a very good/efficient system of getting customers in and out. sometimes it's hard to understand where the line is... More

Grabbed a couple different types of bread to have with our wine and cheese. Everything was freshly baked, slightly crunchy on the outside with fluffy soft centers.

We stopped at Model Bakery on our way out of town after having some of their fabulous bread at another restaurant. The breakfast sandwich and croissant sandwich were wonderful. The layers in the croissant were beautiful. The homemade English muffin was fantastic. I'd have one every morning if I lived there. The cinnamon roll was slightly disappointing but we'd go... More

We went to Model Bakery because Mustards Restaurant uses their bread, and at Mustards, it is exceptional. The bread Model Bakery sold us as the bread they deliver to Mustards is pedestrian at best, lacking when compared to many other bakery sources. Then... they offer a Pain au raisin which looks like it is going to be delicious. Another disappointment.... More

I've just had my first English Muffing from this bakery. Wow never had anything like it before. Forget the wine, just get the English muffins!! I'm not joking. It's airy and light but yet a very distinct smooth flavor with bits of flour, egg and butter. Ha! Told you just like wine. Cut in half, toast and add your favorite... More

We have gone to Model Bakery, which is part of Oxbow Market, several times. This time we purchased some superb cookies. They have bread and other pastries. Service is good.

We grabbed some coffee and pastries and sat outside for a quick breakfast. It was good, not great. They had a case with beautiful cakes as well.
