The Model Bakery Restaurant Review

: How do you not fall in love with a bakery that has turned out artisan breads from brick ovens since the 1920s? Model Bakery uses only organic flours to craft more than a dozen different bread varieties. Buy a baguette or loaf for sustenance during your day of wine tasting (like sour rye, potato, garlic cheese, or simple pain du vin with wine-grape starter). Or sample the bread as part of a sandwich du jour or as accompaniment to home-cooked soup. It’s hard to pass up thick brick oven pizzas bearing regional delicacies like Point Reyes blue cheese. Salads are also available, as is a wide selection of pastries and pies for dessert.
