We were buying things for the long flight back to the east coast and on a whim bought a couple mochi thinking, sure, we'll try them. But oh my heavens!! They were a revelation!!!!

I thought I knew Chinese baked goods from my experiences on the East Coast, but JJ Bakery blew my perceptions out of the water. We bought a variety of things that we then ate over the next couple of days, including a nut tart, almond brittle, mochi, etc., and everything was remarkable. I highly recommend a stop here for dessert!

I am a fan of the less-sweet, lighter yet still delicious Asian pastries. We regularly purchase cakes from JJ Bakery, which offers a wide variety of fruit-topped cakes with interesting fillings (taro, red bean), as well as more traditional cakes (e.g., Black Forest). They also bake a wide variety of breads, ranging from croissants to taro buns (my favorite!). It's... More

This is a great place with fresh bread coming out multiple times a day and one can order some quick bite items fresh from the kitchen. You will find something be it breakfast or box lunch items, cakes, cookies, sweet or savory buns, hot/cold drink menu, bread or pastries. I like majority of the bread and cake items. Mango mochi,...

As a resident of Arcadia, JJ Bakery is "the" bakery to go to. Not only do they offer great tasting cakes and pastries, they serve the best Chinese/Taiwanese style morning breakfast in town. You can also grab a Taiwanese box lunch, ready made sandwiches or their savory breads to go for your meal. The only negative is that the line... More

Parking is crazy, but worth the hassle. Shelf after shelf of tasty bites. The line was very long but moved so fast I barely had time to get my wallet out.

I have a lot of fond memories of JJ Bakery mostly because my mom used to buy us goodies from here. (back when my sister and I lived with my parents under 1 roof LOL). Anyway, since I work near the area, I stop in here once in a while and we've also ordered large cakes for company events. We... More

I had not planned to visit this bakery as I happened upon it while I was waiting for my order at Din Tai Fung Dumpling House (across the parking lot). I was pleased to encounter visually and aromatically appealing desserts--both Chinese and other Asian delights. I bought several items but the best was the mango mochi. If you like mochi,... More

Food is laid out on shelves and behind a refrigerated counter. It all looks incredibly delicious. They have some western items as well like cream brule or Mount Blanc cake. The pastries, for the most part are not a sweet as in American or European bakeries make them but they are fresh and tasty. They haves some strange savory choices... More
