We drove 30 minutes for scones, and I would happily have driven a few hours. Wild Flour Bread in Freestone, CA in Sonoma County is that good. We’ve made several trips to the Russian River Valley this summer because our awesome and generous friends bought a place in Monte Rio. It has been so much fun exploring the area. On Sunday morning we made our pilgrimage to this wood-fired bakery.
The amount of baked goods available, especially when you’re hungry and possibly a little bit hungover on a Sunday morning, is overwhelming. They have something called Fougasse, which is bread with potato, garlic, rosemary, jack cheddar and swiss cheese. The Bohemian has orange, apricot and pecans. The sticky bun is packed with currants, cinnamon and walnuts.
Frida and our friend’s son Cooper LOVED this place, not just for the sweets, but for the amazing garden in the back, where they were free to run wild.
Everything except the scones comes loaf form, so be prepared to share or take some home. Even I, with my insatiable sweet tooth, couldn’t finish what we ordered:
A loaf of sticky buns plus two scones—an obscene amount for three people (especially when one of them is only two) but I couldn’t help it. One of the scones was vegan with ginger and I can’t remember what else, I ate it too fast. The other had raspberries and OMG, it was amazing. The menu changes often but you can’t go wrong.
It’s an idyllic scene where you expect Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail in their little suits to bound from behind the lush vegetation.
But it was just munchkins running around.
I’m pretty sure she’s getting her two-year molars, but she won’t let me get close enough to her mouth to check for sure.

If you ever find yourself near Wild Flour, or if you just find yourself wanting the best scone ever baked, definitely make your way to 140 Bohemian Highway to pay this place a visit. Tip: Osmosis spa is right across the street!
