“A must stop when in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We were amazed by the quality of the scones at this place, which is conveniently open early for folks passing through on their way north/south or to Point Reyes. My recommendation is to buy a box and eat them all day long-- one for breakfast, one for lunch, one after dinner for dessert. Both the blueberry scone and the blackberry scone were fantastic. They also have a large assortment of muffins and other things.

“Nice bakery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This bakery is popular on the weekends with a line going out the door. We tried the gluten free muffin and it was quite good.

“Local Town Charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Bovine Bakery is a hole in the wall with truly great pastries. What would you expect in the rustic area of Point Reyes Seashore? This place is not Starbucks so coffee is just coffee here. The pastries are delightful and huge. They are all natural, organic, and probably someone's homemade recipes. Get there early, as by afternoon, the selection is limited on morning pastries or even nonexistent. Expect a line into the place but it moves fairly quickly. Totally worth the stop.

“As good as they say...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

I'm not a big bakery fan as I'm gluten-free but they did have GF items and they were good, but not as good as the muffins and scones that my DH raved about for 2 days. We went back again at the end of our vacation. Doesn't look like much and when you look in the case you think, "that's it?", but you shouldn't miss this place, no matter how long the line is.

“Always a Great Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Everything I've ever had at the Bovine Bakery has been outstanding. I am always proud to introduce my friends to this lovely place, and I have never been disappointed. The baked goods (clearly baked on the premises) are delicious, and free of the chemicals and dough conditioners that pollute baked items from other venues. Some of the goodies are actually healthy, and all are totally yummy, oozing with lovely real butter and sugar and nuts and sometimes even veggies. A terrific place to stop and collect sustaining baked goods for your hike. The staff is unfailingly cheery, and samples are offered. My only complaint? I always come away with more than I intended to buy. (I guess that's a personal problem.) Highly recommended.
