Nice Buns - Skully's Novato

When ever I want to jump start my day it's a quick run to Skully's Bakery in Novato. Today we had a long to do list and needed a little energy to motivate. The Oldtown area has been a disaster area during the revitalization project. Now it's beautiful, open and ready for business. Lots of new shops and restaurants here. Skully's has been around for a while and I'm glad they survived the chaos
No words are spoken between me and my wife. I know what to order here, like a comfortable old habit. I get the blueberry morning bun and she has the bear claw. Both are rich, buttery and delicious. There are lots of other choices. Muffins, breads, and savory items too. Tom and Dave's Coffee is served, hot and strong. A good day has begun.

I didn't know about Skully's, but the pictures make my teeth hurt. [Get this sweet-toothless hag some salsa, some vinegar, some salt!]
However -- you had me at "buttery."
Oh, wait... Savory items too! Bingo.

I just ate a Skully's for the first time and loved it! They have all kinds of lunch items that are healthy and hearty. I loved the bread on my sandwich.

He's my uncle and a great baker. I enjoy sitting in the cafe with my cousins when we visit. My mom says their coffee is really great!
