The apricot turnovers are still the best around this area. I definitely recommend them along with the Cherry turnovers. I also bought the pumpkin raisin loaf bread to share for Thanksgiving. It was a hit.

This bakery was a featured stop during the Ghost Walk. After hearing tales of the local haunts, we were treated to samples by the bakery staff. We had to return the next morning for full sized portions! The donuts are delicious. The turnovers: apple, cherry, pumpkin fillings are enveloped by well-prepared, flavorful, sugar-coated pastry dough. We bought five, large loaves... More

After a morning of strolling through the stores, this is a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee/tea and have a snack...the turnovers are great.

Looking for a sweet treat? This place has great blueberry donuts, apple fritter bites, and the awesome "heavenly delights". A great selection of specialty breads too. The sourdough bread is authentic and delicious. A cute little stop while walking the streets of San Juan.

The bakery is one of the oldest commercial buildings in town and for many as big a local landmark as Mission San Juan Bautista. The current owners have revived the recipes that made the bakery famous -- from the days when Ansel Adams would drive in from Carmel every week to buy his favorite bread. Personal favorite? Blueberry doughnuts served... More

We popped in to take a peak because it was very appealing. Our purchase of an apple turnover and a few (ah hem) magic bars was delicious. They also offered other pastries and breads that were equally as tempting. If you take the main drag on to see the Mission at San Juan Batista, you'll miss the small block of... More

This plae is it! My friend suggested to visit after the mission. I was so curious since her aunt make it a point to stop here on the way home to Fresno from Carmel. Voila! I was not disappointed. If bread is vitamin I would have bought all of their baked goods that day. The place is squeaky clean and... More
