I'm not against Starbucks. It's useful when I'm in a super hurry. But when I want a delicious pastry and a full flavored coffee I go to the Village Baking Company. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, pastries, sweets, wedding cakes and much more!

This place is the best! I bought a ton of fancy baked goods just for myself and they were excellent!! It is definitely my guilty pleasure. So many different beautiful edible treats.

They have THE BEST carrot cake I have ever eaten. Their cookies are also amazing. I have never been disappointed with the bakery. I have ordered a sandwich and was not impressed, nothing special about it.

My favourite shopping center in Modesto, and in fact, the one I patronise weekly, is McHenry Village. It goes without saying that when I want a drink or little snack, or have to meet a friend or professional associate for a quick coffee or lunch or business, Village Baking Co. is where I go. It is conveniently located a couple... More

I love the customer service at this place. I go there at least once a week and the employees are very friendly. The macaroons are very good and their iced coffee is pretty good. Very clean place with a variety of sweets and sandwiches.

The bakery has some wonderfully sweet goodies but is pricey for what you get. I ordered a dozen almond tea cookies and six snicker doodles. Total $18. Will be buying my cookies somewhere else. The service is very slow as it took me fifteen minutes to get those cookies and out the door. No one in front of me.

This was a great little find while on business trip in Modesto . A great bakery, coffee shop and cafe. The quiche and salads were great. The bakery items were a hit with the staff. The bakery has very homey sweets to very elegant sweets. The staff were very friendly. I needed the bakery items packaged separately and they did... More

this was so much more than just a quick coffee stop. This is a full bakery with a mouth-watering array of gorgeous treats. My husband and I had a bear claw, a one inch meringue pie (great for a tiny taste), a peanut butter ball, and coffee drinks. They had their deli salads prepared for the day and I ordered... More

Village Baking Company does have great pastries and baked goodies; however, they are expensive. As far as lunch, the sandwiches are way overpriced. (Unless I just ordered the wrong thing!) I got a tuna sandwich on sliced wheat and it came with a small cookie and it was $9.00! To top it off, there was barely enough tuna to cover... More
