“oatmeal chocolate chip cookies”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Although this bakery is famous for its scones I always get an oatmeal chocolate chip cookies after a hike or run in the park....for 27 years!

“Coffee, good; croissant, so-so”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Brief encounter--only had a cup of coffee and a croissant. Coffee was fresh and pretty good. Croissant was huge but only marginally flakey and a little bit tough. Breads looked very good, so maybe that's the way to go.

“A must stop when in the area”
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”
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”
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.
