Arizmendi

This is a high volume, artisan bakery. They have a few standard loaf breads (suburban and city are standards - one soft but dense sandwich the other more crusty). They also have a wide range of sweeter goods including scones, muffins, cookies and some savory like the cheese rolls. These tend to... read more

Arizmendi's pizzas are always great! The crust is perfect, and the toppings are always interesting and delicious. I used to live in the neighborhood and remember how much I enjoyed the baked goods, especially the cheese rolls. Mmmmmmm good!

Unfortunate that my diet place was located so close by because my poor impulse control drove me here after each visit with my counselor. Maybe that's why Jenny Craig closed in this location. Hot veggie pizza and shortbread cookies are my favorite. There is always some unusual combination on the pizza and something good about the rotating supply of shortbread... More

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. They are good especially... 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.
