“Organic ice cream, including vegan flavors. Be prepared for a line out the door, but it’s typically worth the wait for a scoop of delicious ice cream for our local Strauss Family Creamery. ”

“I don’t know, maybe it’s the giant wheel of Parmesan that they bring around to each table, maybe it’s the wacky piano player and sing-along that goes on in the back room, but this place always makes me feel warm and cozy.”

Bakery

“Local favorite. This little bakery can get pretty busy and while it’s a little pricey, their baked goods and breakfast\lunch food is pretty spectacular. Comforts is around the corner and is also very delicious! Downtown San Anselmo is also a really cute place to explore too and walk off your meal.. Check out Imagination park with the Indiana Jones and Yoda statues.”
