East Bay Bakeries Roundup: These Spots Take the Cake

This round-up focuses on bakeries in the East Bay. If you’re in San Francisco, see our SF Bakeries Roundup: Stop and Smell the Flour feature.

East Bay bakeries dutifully stamp your pastry passport with French croissants, Chinese custard tarts and Hungarian Krémes, to name a few. Take a tour of international recipes of old or try out innovative new combinations at an experimental spot. Regardless of your preference, there are sugary choices that will keep your dessert plate full, your hands sticky and your napkins busy.

Hop off BART and pop into one of these aromatic bakeries in Oakland or Berkeley. You probably won’t want to leave, and when you do depart, keep your hands free to hold a box of oven-fresh sweets to go.
