My uncle was friends with the baker of one of the best cheesecakes that I've ever tasted. The shop was on Foothill Blvd just north of Fruitvale. Hopefully there's an hounder that's old enough to remember this shop and can tell me his name.
That wsa in fact Dorfer's Vienna Bakers
5926 Foothill Blvd.
My Grandfather owned it for many years. I enjoyed many of days playing there and folding boxes for the cheesecakes. I also enjoyed taggin along on deliveries to all the fine restuarants in the City via the sidewalk elevators. Oh what fun as a kid!
When I was a kid, a long time ago, my dad worked at Clorox in Oakland and sometimes he'd stop by Dorfers to bring home one of their incredible cheesecakes. I dream of them today.
Lac123, what was the circumstance that Dorfers closed? My goodness, there is a whole new generation or two who would so love that Dorfer experience!
