Bouchon Bakery

I was in Yountville midday, and I stopped at the Bouchon Bakery. It was a bit reminiscent of a jewelry store - lots of little gems behind glass and a few spread out on a counter.

I immediately went for a pre-made sandwich ($5): ham and cheese on half a baguette with a quick swipe of mustard - tasted very fresh and the bread was perfect. I kept thinking the baguette was buttered but it was the cheese.

I bought a variety of items to take back to work. The macaroons come in three flavors - chocolate, vanilla, and caramel - so I bought one of each ($1.75 each!! The caramel was what we'd had at the FL lunch.). They had raspberry and blackberry financiers - bought one of each. One croissant and one sticky bun ($2 each) - the bun was buttery and not overly sticky. And one chocolate chunk cookie.

Everything is presently being devoured by my co-workers with much appreciation. I spent $17.50 overall. Service was great.

These were just a few of the available items. They had a cranberry/peach scone and a savory scone with blue cheese. There was a pain au chocolat, lemon tart, fruit tart, and a variety of other cookies plus breads.
