Bouchon Bakery

6528 Washington St, Yountville, CA 94599, USA

Thomas Keller has made quite a name for himself in Napa Valley with the region’s finest restaurant, The French Laundry, as well as Bouchon and Bouchon Bakery. The bakery is located on the main street of Yountville, a small town in Napa Valley off of Highway 29. The bakery is easy to find--there is always a line outside. The line moves fairly quickly, and inside you find an array of goodies to choose from, including lunch items and French-style pastries. One of the most popular items is the macarons, the fluffy yet crisp French cookie that has become so trendy in California lately.

Don’t let the long line out the door discourage you—these delicious pastries are well worth the wait and the outdoor café tables make for a lovely spot to dig in once you’re handed your treats.
