California Dreaming: Wild Flour Bread

California Dreaming is a new series I am starting featuring some of my favorite places to visit in California. They may be a town or a shop, but they are all places I have visited and loved.  Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Wild Flour Bread  is a sweet little organic brick oven bakery that we discovered one day several years ago on the way to Bodega Bay.  It is directly off of the main road (Bodega Hwy) connecting Sebastopol to Bodega Bay.  It has become our tradition to stop here on the way home from the beach to pick up a delicious loaf to share over dinner.


The menu changes often, but every day there is an offering on the most unique, ingredient packed organic breads I have ever seen!  They bake and serve over 900 loaves daily in their brick ovens, which give the breads a nice thick crust.  You can sample the daily offerings to decide which lucky loaf is coming home with you.  My favorite is their jalapeno bread and the girls love their sticky buns!


I just adore the inside, where you get to see all the action!  And I have never not been greeted with a smile and a warm hello.  The staff here really believes in the {somewhat} lost art of customer service.



The walls display original art by local artists for sale.  I would have loved to snatch up all six of those little oils for my home.


Carb lovers heaven!

Another perk is their amazing garden that you are free to explore.  It features an extensive collection of herbs, veggies and flowers.  My girls just love it!  There is a spot with chairs and a table so you can sit with your goodies and enjoy the scenery.


If you are ever in the area, be sure to stop by Wild Flour Bakery.
