When we’re not galavanting some place in this beautiful big world, we often drive from Santa Barbara to Silicon Valley and vice versa. Over years, it’s become a wonderful and must do drive with beautiful scenery most of the way with some great foodie spots worthy of stopping to eat along the way.
One of our favorite bakeries in California is Bob’s Well Bread in the charming town of Los Alamos where we often stop to enjoy a delicious brunch or just pick up a couple of European style sandwiches.
Bob’s bread is really good and the French pastries are some of the best I’ve had in the US! The grounds are pretty fun to visit with the awesome outdoor sitting to dine al fresco. They often have the woodfired oven going and you can enjoy fresh focaccia right out of the oven!
If you take a road trip between Los Angeles or Santa Barbara and San Francisco (and you should!), do yourself a favor and treat yourself to Bob’s Well Bread Bakery! Chances are you’ll see the master baker, Bob, behind the counter.
His Euro sandwiches are phenomenal, too!
Hot tip: plan on going as early as possible to enjoy a glazed morning bun! Soooo delicious!
(Note that they’re closed Tuesday and Wednesday! Bob also has cottages for rental in the same town! Check out his website.)
There are other cool places in or near Los Alamos for a mini Gastronomad weekend! Stay tuned, we’ll share more later.
