Great Morning Pastries

This is a great neighborhood spot but worthy of a visit from other areas. The main attraction here are their morning pastries - the chocolate thing is to die for - brioche with dark chocolate - not too sweet. Their scones are amazing - oat, corn, and current. I'm not a huge fan of their breads... read more

I've been here a couple times now and I've never been disappointed! Their baked goods are amazing, as well as the pizza. My absolute favorite is their coconut macaroons!! Friendly staff and cute neighborhood... Love this place!

I always enjoy going to Arizmendi. They have a few locations, but being a cooperative style operation, it's all very well done. Delightful focaccia, cookies, muffins. Very nice staff. Hope to visit again soon!

Arizmendi is a popular place. There is always a line -- certainly at lunch and often in the morning, as people buy their coffee and morning pastries there. It can be crowded. Oftentimes, there is nowhere to sit. There is always a daily pizza -- sold by the slice or by the whole pie -- and it's always vegetarian. Prices... More

Service is fast and efficient. The pizza is unique and delicious. One pizza rotates daily, some combo of veggies herbs onions and cheese, always tastes about the same and always amazing, yummy sourdough crust that I like to eat first. I also get baquettes regulary from the bakery, very very crisp on the outside. Atmosphere: bakery with a few tables... More

If you are looking for whole wheat or multi-grain bread or pastry, it ain't here. the 1 item (a roll) was really mostly white flour). places that are talking the talk of "real food" and "healthy" should have more to offer.

I love the speed and freedom of having them choose the pizza of the day. All fresh ingredients and always delicious and gives you things you wouldn't have thought of on your own. The breads and rolls are also first rate. My favorite is their English muffin.

We started coming here for the pizza, but ended up returning for the granola and yummy baked goods. Only bummer was that they were closed the week after Christmas. I'm assuming so their workers could also enjoy some holiday time off.

I luv everything about Arizmendi. You get what you pay, but in this place, the price is more than fair. Salads, pizzas, pastries... everything is super yummy.
