Off the beaten path and lots of choices. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I would go back. My favorite was the pecan shortbread. Lots of nuts were used. Only places that are are so generous with ingredients. Everything was good sized.

Located in the Grand Traverse Commons old fire hall, circa 1880, these folks make outstanding breads, cookies, and treats. Grab a treat and a coffee and walk around the beautiful Commons area - a vast array of 1880's buildings currently being refurbished, one brick at a time. A gargantuan undertaking that makes jewels like Pleasanton bakery a reality!

I stopped in more 1 treat and left with many. They have delectable treats for everyone. The smell when you walk in is wonderful. If they could take away the calories, i would have bought more!

This review serves as a PSA for all those hoping to find the amazing, naturally-leavened, no-yeast-allowed, all-organic, hyper-local Pleasanton from 2007 - 2013. This ain't it. If you don't know what I'm talking about, this bakery will serve you just fine (hence the "average" rating because it is exactly that). If you are looking for the once-exceptional Pleasanton, entering through... More

Don't miss this bakery. My favorite was the chocolate almond croissant but the pizza was delicious as well. We loved it so much we are planning our stay this June at the Commons right across the street because it's so convenient and delicious!

We just went there for the bread. It was crusty and delicious. The varieties were also great. I understand they change their offerings daily. What a treat.

This little bakery is actually good for people with a gluten intolerance. They use a special type of wheat that is not a GMO. So, we went and ordered a few things, including a pecan cherry loaf that was close to 7 dollars. The first slice revealed a slice of bread without a cherry or nut in sight. Second slice... More
