Bouchon Bakery- Yountville

Got a few things from the bakery last week:

- Chocolate bouchon ($1.75?): the size of a mini-muffin, it seems a cross between a rich chocolate muffin and a brownie. Deep chocolate flavor and not too sweet, I loved it.
- Baguette ($2.50): nice crunch but not enough flavor inside. I prefer ACME baguettes, plus theirs are only $1.55.
- Ham & cheese scone ($3.75): more like a biscuit, with little nubs of cheese and it looks like probably dill or some kind of herb inside. Disappointed that there was barely any ham, and the little nub I got was dried out and too chewy.
- Sticky bun ($3.75): nice toasted pecans on top, it held up well even when reheated in the toaster oven the next day. Good balance of cinnamon and sugar, very good and not too large as sticky buns can be.

Cute patio on the side if you want to relax or enjoy a picnic-type of lunch from the bakery. Well, if you ignore the loud whirring of the generator for the air conditioning unit for Bouchon next door.
