I popped into Village Bakery in Davis recently to pick up some of its award-winning artisan bread. Seduced by the aroma of fresh-baked pizza, however, I left laden with pepperoni-encrusted slices for my kids, who gobbled them up with greedy enthusiasm the minute I got home. This friendly neighborhood bakery, a favorite haunt of UC Davis students, also offers a tempting lineup of desserts and breakfast pastries. Don’t miss the sourdough walnut bread or the roasted chicken and onion pizza with white garlic sauce.
