Good bakery in/near Sebastopol

About a month or so ago on this board, I read about a bakery that bakes amazing baguettes, etc. in or near Sebastopol. Can't find the name of the bakery again. I don't think it was Wild Flour or some of the places that make fancier French pastries...does this ring a bell with anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Melanie? TIA.

    I posted about Nightingale Breads in Forestville here,

    Another bread baker in Sebastopol is Village Bakery.

        Also near Sebastapol, Wild Flour Bread produces some amazing breads. They do baguettes, but they're more about the rustic, whole grain loaves.

        If the word "amazing" is used, then I think Village Bakery's baguettes are ruled out. :(

        I've been meaning to checkout Nightingale for nearly a year now. Might have to make that happen this weekend. It's just up the road.

          Hope you both report back. I only ate the French loaves with my eyes, didn't buy the batard or baguette.

            Thanks for asking since I was in the area today. I'm posting on Melanie's link above but do NOT miss the Forestville French baguette. It is amazing. On the 16th they will have pannetone.

            BTW, Village Bakery has an excellent stollen. The bread of the month is Swedish Limpa. Only sold on Wednesday or special order so I didn't get to try it.
