Hygiene Rules, even close to Berkeley! – The pizza is tasty the first few times you have it, but after awhile I just go tired of so much oil on it, but that is forgiven, what bothers me was the time I was in there and the guy at the register with tattoo's on his neck (one of the owners mind you) he smelled like a homeless person! I could smell him from across the counter as I was giving him my money, of course I lost my appetite, and have not been back since, which is too bad since I live in the neighborhood. Maybe someone should call the health dept!
Great bread, go early – Arizmendi is neat because it's community/co-op owned, and they really know their bread. You gotta go early to get the good stuff, tho. Make it a morning stop! Don't be dissuaded by the San Pablo location...there's parking in the back and a nice open breezeway to sit in while you nosh on their goods.
Lovely light and tasty pizza – Their pizza of the day has a lovely thin crust, wit the perfect texture and flavorful sourdoughy taste. Though the toppings vary from day to day, I have had several different types, which have all been excellent. If you like heavy pizza with lots of cheese and sauce, don't come here. If you like light gourmet style pizza, with a sprinkling of roasted vegatables on top. Buy a whole pizza. Reheats well.
The other baked good are very tasty too. But mostly I just buy the pizza.
User review by calendario – Arizmendi is the people's bakery. Unlike many shops in Emeryville, this place is owned by the folks who work there. It has a nice vibe to it, doesn't feel sterile like some chain restaurant. Really, though, about the food....delicious pastries and pizza. The coffee is good and strong. I like the fact that they use some organic ingredients. I feel good about patronizing this establishment.
Great Lunch Deal – $2 for a slice of yummy fresh pizza! This is not the usual red sauce and mozzarella deep dish pizza but equally as delicious. All slices are vegetarian and very interesting. The crust is sourdough with a cornmeal bottom making it nice and crisp. The toppings are always genius. My favorite being the sweet potato, sweet onion, goat cheese and pesto.
The bakery items are equally tasty. My favorites being the cheese bisquits, ginger loaf and hazelnut shortbread. They also have great artisian breads and foccacias.
They do take credit card but you must purchase $10 or more, which is easily done for me!
Wonderful Small Friendly Independent Bakery!!! – I am a long time devoted customer to the cheese board and the Arizmendi Collectives as I live near by the lakeshore store but I was thrilled to find another Arizmendi in Emeryville. The bakers there make high quality/organic ingredients available in their products for a fair price. They also recently started serving fair trade espresso drinks in the morning to compliment a delicious pastry! Their pizza is amazing and they use only fresh/seasonal toppings with a variety of flavors......All this, and PARKING makes this arizmendi a gem of San Pablo Ave!!!
Tasty organic stuff? In Emeryville? – I'm a big fan of Arizmendi's pastries and pizza. Nice to have it in Emeryville--not a place you'd expect for so much organic stuff. Good bread too/
Great neighborhood bakery! – This awesome little bakery collective is a little shining star in the sea of fast food and franchises that is Emeryville. I was a longtime fan of the Cheese Board and the Arizmendi on Lakeshore, so I was psyched when this place, started by the same people, opened just a couple blocks away from my house. Their scones are absolutely the best in town, hands down. Their cookies remind me of my grandmother's (that's good). They serve only organic coffee, their pizza is to die for, and their sourdough bread rivals Acme's. Yummy!
original pizza, amazing pastries & sourdough – This Arizmendi uses mostly organic ingredients in all of their products. There is only one type of fabulous vegetable pizza, which changes every day. They just started serving organic fair-trade espresso drinks. I eat here often and never get tired of the pizza, which is also made with their trademark sourdough crust. Like the other Arizmendi's in Oakland and SF, the bakery is a worker-owned cooperative. Another reason to support it.
