Quiche/Brunch foods in Oakland/Berkeley/Alameda
I'm looking for recommendations for places where I can pick up some quiches/brunch foods in Oakland/Berkeley/Alameda.
Baby foodnut is getting baptized in a few weeks & I've decided that trying to cook for a crowd while sleep deprived just isn't going to happen. So, please recommend your favorite take-out places for brunch-type items.
(any menu suggestions are welcome too, though I know that's a bit off topic for this board. So far, I'm thinking mimosas, quiche, green salad, fruit salad, coffee cake/pastries.)
Thanks in advance!
The Pasta Shop does catering, so you could check there (either the Rockridge or the 4th St. locations). I'm not positive if they have quiche, but I wouldn't be surprised, and I've enjoyed their frittata in the past. I've had incredible quiche at Lola's on Solano, but I'm not positive if they sell it whole.
Another possibility—Crixa has delicious baked piroshkis. I had the cabbage one, and saw a potato the last time I was in. The pastry is incredibly flaky and the filling delicious. You could also get coffee cake there and I highty recommend the Russian honey cake—perfect for brunch, not too sweet, and very moist. You should call first because they don't always have the same items, they rotate.
Bakesale Betty has great scones and such. Not sure if they do quiche, maybe someone should suggest that to her (I think it would fit in with the rest of her offerings).
