Arizmendi Bakery is a worker owned collective of people who serve muffins, scones, breads, salad, and a different pizza each day starting at 11am. It opened in 2004. They use a lot of organic ingredients. It is located in North Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto. They also serve coffee drinks. Cash or check only. They are somewhat related to the Arizmendi locations in Oakland, San Rafael, and San Francisco, as well as to the Cheese Board Collective.
Decor, Vibe – Clean small shop with lots of baked goods. Little seating inside and much more outside. Lots of workers on lunch break were getting food. Pixar is around the corner. The San Francisco location on ninth Avenue is a little smaller and more cramped.
Mushrooms, Red Onions, Gorgonzola, Rosemary-Thyme Oi Pizza ($2.50 slice, $18 entire pie)
This way the pizza of the day. It had crunchy crust throughout. Cheese was high quality, strong, but very good. This is one heavy pizza even though it had no meat and was not thick crust. Good stuff. We did not miss meat when eating this pizza.
Fruit Scone ($2) changes daily and tasted great. Tender yet firm texture. Not too sweet, no big layer of sugar, but lots of apple in it.
Baguette (priced by the pound!) is excellent especially when it’s still hot out of the oven. Definitely one of the better ones in the San Francisco Bay Area.
This is very good pizza in a interesting venue. Arizmendi Bakery and Pizzeria’s pizza was almost identical to the Cheeseboard’s version. The bakery had lots of good looking fresh bakery items.
We would come back if we were in the area. The choice of Cheeseboard or Arizmendi location is more geographic than quality.
