Love your buns: Downtown Bakery and Creamery

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

A fortuitous trip to Healdsburg for an optical check-up (and the ensuing blurry vision that made driving hazardous at best for the next hour) led my sniffer to an oldy-but-goodie breakfast stop at Downtown Bakery and Creamery (308 Center St # A  Healdsburg, 431-2719).

If you haven’t stopped in lately for a sticky bun, there’s no doubt in my mind that the flaky, crispy, buns of goodness are the best in Sonoma County. If not the planet. While you’re there, check out the spiced donut muffin (part donut, part muffin, all delicious) and pick up some of their slice-and-bake refrigerator cookie dough for the holidays.

  1. It’s my absolute favorite in SoCo. The fruit pockets taste like something Grandmother made and the brownies? Well, they are to die for. They would be my last meal request! LOL

  2. Love this place. Even better than the sticky buns is their bread. And they serve breakfast some days (weekends) and have this amazing dish with polenta and greens. Wish I could go more often.

  3. The secret to these sticky buns: arrive within an hour of opening (6AM weekdays & 7AM weekends) – it’s early but worth it – when the sticky buns are warm out of the oven, they melt in your mouth!

    Also, has the best coffee in Sonoma County (from Mr. Espresso) – to counteract the early am blues.

  4. great and great prices, too.

  5. Lucky to have this place so close. As a fan of pastry shops, this place is ‘top flight’

  6. *sticky

  7. I love love love those stick buns. A trip to Hbg isn’t complete without them.
