If I only knew how spoiled I was to enjoy Some Crust all the years I worked for the Claremont Colleges (1989-1997) and the years I made trips from West L.A. to Claremont just for their cookies (1997-2005)! I've lived in Portland, OR for 11 years and there is nothing close to Some Crust; for that matter in Seattle also... More

First of all, there is the café side, which gives Starbucks a run for their flavour, for less bucks-bucks; rich-tasting fair trade coffee from Monkey & Son, in all sorts of permutations. There are only a few tables, but it makes for an intimate feel and a great meeting-place. Then there is the bakery side, accessed by leaving and entering... More

Our son lives in CA, while we live in VA. He is an adult, but our family tradition surrounding birthday celebrations is very important to us. We wanted our son to have a birthday cake, but a homemade confection from mom was a logistical impossibility. I located Some Crust on a Googe search and called to see if they would... More

Some Crust is a great local bakery that has been around for many years. They have two parts to their store. One is the bakery part the other serves coffee and sandwiches. I have to say that one of my favorite things there is the fruit tarts. They also do amazing custom cake orders.

I heard this was such a good bakery, so I decided to give it a try. I was having company later and wanted to offer my guests some delicious sweets. I purchased a few bakery items solely on how delicious things looked. Once home with some good hot tea and great friends, we delved in only to be disappointed in... More

Always fresh bakery goods each morning, buttery, soft, melt-in-your-mouth frosting and oven warm. Best part is the great size of each piece!!

They have a lot of treats for sale, but I'm not particularly fond of most of them. The cakes are slightly dry. I prefer mine to be moist and chewy. I like their French macarons though. Very decadent.

I am there at least once or twice a week, with or without the grandkids, for a quick breakfast and meet-n-greet with friends.
