The Bakery and Cafe

When founded, the Cheese Board primarily sold cheese, but by 1975 began to experiment with baking bread. The sale of our baked goods grew rapidly, the baguette in particular. As the sale of bakery products grew so did the variety of breads, pastries and other baked goods we offer. We now have a huge variety of daily-changing breads and baked goods including scones, cookies, loaves and more.

We also have a full coffee bar featuring fair-trade, organic coffees starting at 7am. Espresso drinks also available.

We change up our breads on a daily and weekly basis, and throw in specials all the time! Check our menu regularly for the latest, especially around the holidays.

We allow customers to reserve breads on most days, for most occasions.

To reserve bread please call: 510-549-3183 ext. 4

We are no longer taking orders for breads on Friday and Saturday. If you would like to have an item set aside for either day please call the day before.

Breads must be picked up 30 minutes before the end of the business day.
