Everything baked at Sine Crust is fantastic. The lemon bars are exceptional! It will be hard to choose only one baked goody.

This is the best bakery in town. Delicious pastries, cookies, cakes and bread. Coffee, too. The items are pricey but that doesn't seem to stop anyone because the quality and taste is so dependable.

I just love this place - from the hot chocolate (they make their own chocolate sauce) to the gluten free cookies to the sandwiches to the pastries and the cakes/cupcakes.

This is worth a stop if you need an easy breakfast in Claremont - there can be really long lines, particularly on the morning pastry (i.e., not sandwich) side, but they usually move pretty quickly, and it's always worth the wait. They have beautiful cupcakes...More

There are very few bakeries that you could call an institution in the towns in which they are located.

Some Crust Bakery is just such an institution in the community of Claremont.

Some Crust Bakery is located in the college town of Claremont, California, about 35 miles east of Los Angeles, at the base of Mt. Baldy and the San Gabriel Mountains. The Bakery is located in the Claremont Village, an intact downtown area adjacent to the renowned Claremont Colleges. Claremont was originally a major citrus production area and shipping hub, but, over the course of the past 40 years or so, has transitioned into a suburban community on the border of Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties. Some Crust Bakery is housed in a historical building built in 1888. After a stint as a dry goods store, 119 Yale Ave. became a bakery beginning in 1916. 119 Yale Ave. has been in continuous use as a bakery since that time, owned by five different owners, notably including the Hodges and Jensen families.

In 1981, Fred and Dorothy Demke purchased Jensen’s Danish Bakery, and re-named it Some Crust Bakery. Dorothy changed the focus of the bakery to a more artisan style, emphasizing quality ingredients and innovative recipes. In 1992, Some Crust expanded to include the property adjacent immediately south on Yale Ave., the former home of Dave’s Shoe Repair. Originally, this was the Some Crust Tea Room, but was later converted into the more full service Some Crust Café. In 1997, Some Crust Bakery was bought by Larry and Sandie Feemster, and the Feemster family proudly still own and operate the Bakery to the present day.

Since the Feemster family took over ownership of Some Crust, the amount of baked goods and products the Bakery offers has expanded greatly. As well as offering Some Crust’s world renowned cookies and danish, the Bakery also features a full menu of sandwiches and egg sliders, (all custom made to order on Some Crust’s freshly baked bread), cupcakes, birthday and special occasion cakes, fine desserts such as cream puffs, éclairs, fresh fruit tarts and chocolate tortes. Many of our European and Southeast Asian customers have commented that our croissants are some of the finest they have ever tried. The Bakery also features fine coffee and tea from Monkey and Son and Two Leaves and a Bud, respectively. Some Crust bakes fresh bread Tuesday through Saturday, and makes some of the best pies and quiches you are ever likely to taste. Over the course of the last few years, Some Crust has also greatly expanded our wedding cake business. We now offer a private office across the street at 143 Harvard Ave., dedicated to consultations with couples tying the knot, or anyone planning a big celebration with a Some Crust cake!

We at Some Crust consider it an honor and a privilege to have served as Claremont’s Bakery for over 100 years. We hope to see more of our friends and neighbors in the future, and hope to make loyal Crustomers out of those we haven’t met yet!
