“A Diamond in the Rough”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

If you're not looking, you'll miss the Garden Bakery and that would a shame. It's off the main road and tucked away behind a building. Once inside, you'll see and smell some delicious well baked goodies! We went back twice to this bakery for their peach and blackberry pasties and other delicious things. The dough is fabulous and immediately reminded me of my childhood Christmas when mom baked all short of cookies and pastries. We also had their Chile Relleno Burrito - another delight. I don't think you can go wrong with anything they bake/make. And for Mendocino this place is affordable!

“Mmmmmm!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Picked up some croissants to munch on on the way to the Redwoods. Came fresh out of the oven, they were lovely. Had a cinnamon roll another day which was also good.

“Garden Bakery---Hidden gem in Mendocino”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

You have to hunt a bit for this little, family-owned bakery that's tucked back in a garden in downtown Mendocino, but it's worth it. We went twice these past two days, lured back after buying a whole wheat sourdough baguette with the perfect soft inside and chewy crust. This morning we returned for their warm-from-the-oven, fresh fruit Danish pastries: we chose a blackberry and cream cheese one and one with fresh peach and custard. Scrumptious! We read that the family's dream had always been to own a bakery and even their pre-teen daughter helps out at the cash register. Track down this place and enjoy! We think it's the best bakery in Mendocino. !

“Nice place”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Though it is tucked away off to the side, it's nice nice little place. The kid running the shop was really nice and talked to us about the town. My pastry was okay, my husband liked his. I wasn't wowed by the product but it was good.
