Dough duel

As if tiny Volcano weren’t appealing enough—softly worn stone buildings set alongside a clear creek—it has not one but two tasty bakeries sharing space (on different days) in a single storefront. Kneading Dough and Jug and Rose (pictured)  are both good for savoring a cup of coffee accompanied by a warm-from-the-oven muffin or cinnamon roll. 16154 Main St., Volcano; 209/296-7777.
