Woodsides' Village Bakery Is Elegantly Simple

Carolyn Jung | September 11, 2017 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink

Its pastoral setting off a two-lane road coupled with its plain-Jane moniker belies the uptown European elegance—albeit a relaxed one—found inside The Village Bakery in Woodside. Yes, it’s a bakery, bar and restaurant all rolled into one, but with a certain polish to it.

After all, it’s the newest establishment from the Bacchus Management Group, which also owns the Michelin-starred The Village Pub just down the road. Inside the bakery, kouign-amanns, palm-size cookies and sourdough boules beckon, along with coffee from Bacchus’ own RoastCo beans.

The restaurant’s all-day menu offers pillowy Parker House rolls, margherita pizzas, two-patty grass-fed beef burgers, and buttermilk waffles with an optional adornment of seven-spice fried chicken; along with daily specials such as grilled American wagyu steak gilded with blue cheese butter.

A fully stocked marble-topped bar and dark-gray walls set the tone, done up with framed works hung salon-style, perhaps in a nod to the former art gallery that was conjoined with the old bakery space to create this small-town spot with the big presence. 3052 Woodside Road, Woodside
