Good bakery in the peninsula?
Any good bakeries in Burlingame/Millbrae/San Mateo/San Carlos/Redwood City areas? I am looking for a place with great pastries and cakes.
The closest thing I have found so far is La Biscotteria in RWC, but they only sell biscotti, foccacia and cannoli. I have been going to Whole Foods in RWC, but I am looking for more unique cakes and pastries.
Try Sogo Bakery in Millbrae (in the same complex as Lunardi's). Probably one of the best branches of Sogo, really high quality Asian and Taiwanese Western style pastries. Mango mousse cake seems nice and their snack/breakfast buns are great for a quick bite to go and good portions/price ratio.
Satura Cakes in Palo Alto might be worth a visit, though a bit out of your range. Very high quality pastries modeled after Japanese cakes, not cheap, but hard to find this style of cakes elsewhere. First shop opened in Los Altos. Not sure how much cakes are, but individual slices/pieces can go up to $6 (like a strawberry shortcake thing) though past reviews have been all praises.
I too second the Copenhagen Bakery rec for delish Danish style pastries and bread.
technically sogo is in burlingame. the lunardi's center (which also has 5a) is a couple blocks south of millbrae ave.
