I regularly buy bread from the brick oven bakery and it is one of my favorite bread makers in Traverse City - old world style, a slow rise using mostly Michigan grains. But recently I tried a pizza from them. We chose the "meat lovers" which had unique wide slices pepperoni, or salami and some great salty cappicola. Actually I'm... More

I bought a loaf of Parmesan Olive bread and it was fantastic. If you love fresh baked breads, scones, cookies etc. this is your place. They have a very good selection.The bakery is located just minutes from downtown at commons which was once the state hospital.

We stopped in after a tour of the State Hospital. I grabbed a loaf of the parmesan olive bread. It was fantastic. Crusty and delicious plain, toasted, and grilled. I tried it all three ways. Good bread and butter is such a treat!

I had the best bread (parmesan olive bread) and scone (white chocolate apricot) ever during my recent visit to Pleasanton. My highest recommendation! Not only was the scone tasty, it was huge. Don't miss this quaint place on the grounds of Grand Traverse Commons.

They have the main Bakery in the Grand Traverse Commons and a small storefront in downtown. The ginger molasses cookie was killer, chewy and warm with spices. The flourless chocolate cake is melt in your mouth sweetness (definitely should be eaten the day you buy it). The crostini are more breadsticks than crostini but there was sweet (dried cranberry and... More

Pleasanton Brick Oven Bakery looks like it's located in an old fire house. So cute! Step inside and you will see the broad selection of freshly baked bread, focaccia, cookies, and other types of sweets. They also have a brick oven for baking pizza, which was very appealing. We ordered a couple of loaves of bread to take home. Very... More

We are very pleased that Pleasanton Bakery is now on Union Street a short walk from our residence, A great place to stop for breakfast rolls and breads. We particularly like the Croissants filled with Ham and Cheese which make a nice light casual meal when teamed with a salad. And they are open every day in the summer –... More

Wonderful assortment of bread, pastries, and other sweet treats. Tried an oatmeal chocolate cookie and a pear tart. Both were melt in your mouth good. Not too sweet and perfectly baked.
