Boston Creme Pie! – their Boston Creme Pie is the best ever; just like the kind I was brought up with when I was a kid. The cake is light and tender and the custard is just delicious! My kids thought it was the perfect food when first introduced to this yummy confection!
Around long before anyone parsed the phrase "Gourmet Ghetto," its homey baked goods are as delicious as ever.
– The Scene
This beloved bakery was founded in 1934, and is the source of fond memories for many Berkeley residents. It's almost a relief to find this unpretentious sweet shop, with its white bread and iced sheet cakes, in the midst of all the focaccia along the North Shattuck.
Virginia Bakery makes four kinds of bread and a variety of buns and other baked goods fresh every morning, and the offerings are delicious, wholesome and affordably priced. Along with fresh pastries and a wide selection of cookies--including those thingamajigs with the sprinkles that no one else makes anymore. You'll also find birthday cakes straight out of your childhood fantasies, complete with colorful renderings of the latest superheroes in icing and candy.
Good danish bakery – I've been coming to this establishment for over 40 years and found the baked items to be very consistent and good. Not exactly a low calorie establishment, but ooh soo good.
Fresh Local Bread – My student co-op bought day-old bread from Virginia Bakery for a semester. They were very friendly and helpful and the bread was always delicious. Their cakes and pastries always looked really tasty too. I enjoy even walking by the bakery, because it emanates a wonderful smell...
