Traveling from Bay Area to Red Bluff... Searching for Bakeries

audish | Jul 29, 201902:22 PM     11

Hi,
I'll be travelling back and forth to Red Bluff, CA from the bay area - 237 -> 880 -> 680 -> 780 -> 80 -> 505 -> 5 (to Red Bluff) several times in the next two months. Would love suggestions for good places to stop along the way for snacks/food/bathroom breaks, etc. At varying times of day.

Last Friday, found a 5star bakery on yelp called "Starbread" in Fairfield (340 Travis Blvd Ste #6, Fairfield, CA 94533). Not far off I80 (Travis Blvd). They basically had one thing (new to me) called "Senorita bread" - almost a crescent roll (shaped like a slim, half-sized hot dog bun, almost hollow in the center, where there is buttery-sweetness).

We got there at 8:30am and I bought a box that was filled with buns so hot, it was uncomfortable to place on my lap for more than a few seconds. The buns were buttery (almost dripping) and sweet (almost like a hawaiian roll) - very slight presence of granulated sugar crunch.

Eat them hot, they're amazing. Cold, the next day, not so much. Didn't have any left to try reheating to see if they were nearly as good fresh, but how could they be?

Also bought some pork rinds (hard-crunchy kind) and some oily roasted peanuts with a little garlic. The peanuts were a good car snack, but a little greasy.

They had some baked sweet like a baked manju with yellow bean or purple yam (ube?) on the inside, but i didn't try them.

Hope you have another bakery to recommend for me to try that's not far off the freeway! Would LOVE to find a bakery with "artisan" bread - like a cheese board/acme/etc

thanks,

Audrey
