“Outstanding bakery for French pastries & American favorites”

Hopkins Street Bakery Incorporated
Ranked #15 of 20 Bakeries in Berkeley
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 December 2016

This is a gem of a neighborhood bakery; everything they bake is of the highest quality that rivals any big city bakery. (I hate to let anyone else know about this best kept secret). French pastries like croissants, eclairs or almond tarts are authentic, made with butter and elegant technique. The gorgeous tarts are packed lovingly into boxes with a doily, making for a perfect hostess gift for a party. There's also savory English turnovers filled with mushrooms & ground beef, perfectly executed. Even the humble peanut butter cookie shines here. Try something different like an Anzac biscuit from Down Under. A truly international experience! No seating.

Lovely cookies,and pastries,both sweet and savory. Day old items are at a discount earlier in the day, until gone. Lovely specialty cakes can be ordered too. You can take away or sit on the bench outside and enjoy what you bought. Bakery is in same area as Monterey Market, also excellent cheese, coffee, tea and spices shop, with lots of gourmet chocolate bars too.

Hands down the best challah in Berkeley. Fresh, substantial, and leftovers are perfect for French toast.

haven't made my way through their repertoire but I do enjoy their jelly donuts and they make a very good challah.

perhaps it was my previous review or maybe not, but the owners now have the best coffee in town: full bodied, tasty but not fruity, not acidic. somewhat like the last place team last year wins the championship this year. couple that with excellent pastry, and you've got a winner.
