Good bakeries north of SF?

Recommended Posts

Hello! My wife and I are taking a trip up north out of the city and up to Arcata to visit some friends. What good bakeries are off of the 101 north of the city? We're now self-employed and are doing research! haha!

Not off 101 but of course there's Bouchon Bakery in Yountville.

Closer to 101, we're big fans of Patisserie Angelica in Santa Rosa.

I don't think I've every really sampled their goods, beyond maybe a sticky bun years ago; but, I know The Model Bakery in St. Helena does a good business.

Patisserie Angelica... there are no directions on the website, and the address given can't be found on yahoo maps...

Any help?

On the way up, we went to Della Fattoria in Petaluma. I must say, we were a little underwhelmed. The space itself wsa really cute, and the kitchen looked very nice... but the product looked a little sloppy. There were no labels or names or prices on quite a few of the products. I'm just surprised because of the level of quality that I've always experienced with their stuff at the SF farmers market...
