Reviewed August 25, 2014

We go hiking on the Grand Traverse commons and always stop at pleasanton bakery for a treat after. Great coffee, great cookies,great bread and plenty of tarts, cakes and such to choose from. Sharing with friends, we discovered they make pizza too. On the list for the next trip :-)

“Great bakery with home-style treats and breads”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

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 walnut) and savory (garlic). Both yummy. Wish I tried one of the seasonal fruit tarts and had taken home a loaf of bread.

“Yum!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

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 tasty! Would like to go back, again, and maybe try the pizza.

“Wonderful local Bakery”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

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 – sweet!

“Snack stop on a Saturday afternoon...”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

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.
