My brother-in-law used to live in Berkeley and said that Nabolom Bakery was a must for our trip...he wasn't wrong! We grabbed a couple of scones on our way out of town and weren't disappointed! They were quite pricey, but seemed pretty on-par for California prices. The Jalapeno Cheese Scone was amazing - it sounded strange, but wow, was it... More

I thought that the old Nabalolm Bakery was the best bakery in Berkeley. The Newbolom is not as good as the place I recall. The prices are higher, and that can be justified, but the quality is much lower. The new version of the classic Nabolom Twist was poor. The old one was light and airy with a perfect balance... More

Recently reopened under new management, Nabolom is better than it used to be. The pastries are wonderful whether sweet or savory, and they serve pizza by the slice for lunch and dinner. Highly recommended and a great value.

I used to stop at the old Nabolom, then was sad it closed--but am thrilled about Nabolom 2.0. Though the place still has a funky vibe, it has been cleaned up, for the better. My husband and I stopped by recently. He got a cheese roll. I picked up two killer chocolate chip cookies. Both were excellent. People were streaming... More

Nabolom is ynder now ownership. They have the same and improved array of baked goods and delicious pizza for lunch and dinner. They make a vegetarian pizza daily. They also make half baked pizza to fully bake at home. They also make a kids pizza with cheese and tomatoes.

Good coffee, nice vibe, good outdoor seating, lovely neighborhood for strolling with pastry and mug in hand. Easy spot to bring your dog on a Sunday morning as well.

A cooperative... Read their history on their web site... Very interesting and it works. It's interior is rustic and of course eclectic Great service. If someone asked me about this place a year from now... the thing I would remember the most was their peanut butter cookie and the fact that they donate their bread (individual needy) at the end...

I have been going to Nabolom Bakery since it opened when I was in high school. This is one of the few places left in Berkeley that is a real old-time Socialist worker's collective. So, don't expect that chirpy upbeat greeting you get at chain restaurants. These folks are too cool and too Berkeley for that stuff. What you can... More

Whenever I'm in Berkeley, I have to stop by for an apricot Danish. Of course, they have lots of other scrumptious offerings, but I am hooked on the lovely cheese and flakey dough. The atmosphere is funky Berkeley. A real treat.

The service at the Nabolom was great and their pizza and freshly baked bread was good. I also tried one of their veggie sandwiches and really enjoyed it. The prices were very reasonable. There is inside and outside seating. They also displayed a lot of literature on the goings on around the Berkeley area, which I found helpful.

Thank Susan L
