Does anyone have any recommendations for places to buy good pastries in the Gualala/Anchor Bay/Point Arena area? Does anyone recommend Lauras Bakery, Riptides Baking Co., Trinks Desserts, or Twofish Bakery, or recommend that I avoid them? If you're familiar with the Bay Area, the kind of place I'm looking for would be like La Farine in Berkeley and Albany -- a place that makes great breakfast pastries, eclairs, and tarts, rather than a place that specializes in cakes and cookies.
Also, any recommendations for good breakfasts in that area? How are Cafe Lala in Gualala and Carlini's in Point Arena? Are there yummier breakfasts elsewhere in the area?
