Arizmendi on Lakeshore is part of a bakery co-operative that has six locations – 3 in the East Bay (including the famous Cheese Board), two in SF, and one in San Rafael. They have a lot of pastries that they bake every day and then around 8-10 special pastries each day of the week (arizmendilakeshore.com/menu/) – so that’s a lot... More

This place! I still have to try the pizza here but looks delicious - they make a fresh pizza everyday and that's all you get. What a wonderful concept right? I usually come here to buy bread or something sweet from their bakery. Good stuff!

A routine stop for family in Emeryville. We did the short walk and were rewarded with a wide variety of baked goods. Time well spent.

Great pizza in the Bay Area. It's a co-op & the staff here put a lot of heart & soul in creating their pizza & everything coming out of the kitchen. Fresh ingredients. Great price.

I am glad I discovered this little gem! The place is always crowded (all day long) and there is always a queue of people waiting for the pizza and soups. I love the pizza here so much that I have yet to try anything else. They have 1 pizza on the menu for a day, and its always a vegetarian... More

Modeled on the worker-owned established developed by a fellow names Arizmendi, this bakery is a kin to the Cheeseboard in Berkeley. Classic breads, with wonderful baked goods -- cheese scones; morning rolls, the works. But it is the pizza that has lines outside the door. Each day different; each day to die for. You can also pick up pre-packaged salads... More

This is a cooperative bakery that specializes in over-the-top breads, pastries, soups and to-die-for pizza as well as delicious coffee! There is a small area for in store eating. I've been patronizing Arizmendi since it opened. At first to support the cooperative movement but quickly lost sight of my high-faluting standards and degenerated into just enjoying the deliciousness of what... More

In my time here in Oakland, I have gone to Arizmendi's for a pizza at lunchtime. They just do one type of pizza per day but they are fabulous. Yesterday ws a topping made of cheese (obviously) red cabbage, peppers, and other vegetables. Absolutely delicious. They also sell breads and pastries all made right there before your eyes. Their coffee... More
