We had our first pizza from here and it was excellent. Lots of unique ingredients to choose from. We took it home and will return for more!

I always go to Pleasanton whenever I'm in the Traverse City area. The bread and pizza continue to be delicious. The pastry selection seemed more limited this time. I was sorry to see that Pleasanton was no longer making their fabulous brownies and was disappointed in the cookies, which tasted more sugary sweet than flavorful.

When visiting the Grand Traverse Commons be sure and stop in to a tasty sweet, sandwich or take a loaf of bread home. Its hard to find true bakeries like this one.

We stumbled upon this bakery set on the grounds of a renovated old state run asylum from the 1800's when we discovered the French bakery in downtown Traverse City didn't serve croissants during the week. What a fabulous find! We returned every day of our vacation for their delicious croissants, scones, mini quiche and bread for breakfast. They bake in... More

The kids love their cookies, the wife ant I effulgence in Pleasanton bars or coconut bars. They have great breads and butters. Everyone has a great personality:)

ok...this place just underwent an ownership change...but it is still tops if you're looking for quality bakery bread and accessories...they're number one in Northern Michigan! The change in ownership has made no difference in the quality of their products. They are pricier than their competitors...but are worth it! We'll travel 95 miles just to stock up on their incredible breads!!

It may be a good thing I live 250 miles away from the Pleasanton Brick Oven Bakery, because if I were a Traverse City resident I'd have bankrupted myself buying baked goods from this small shop. It's located in back of the handsome former lunatic asylum in TC, which has been upscaled into shops and condos for a more mentally... More

A little hard to find. We read great reviews of their wood fired oven products, especially their pizzas. We visited them twice. We wanted pizza the first time. They advertised making pizza from 5-9pm only. We were there at 4:45pm and was told they had a very large order to produce and that they weren't doing pizza until after 5:30pm.... More
