petit fours

I am a southern girl living in Oakland, and I am on the hunt for some good petit fours. I have called around to several bakeries in the area, and so far the only petit fours that I can find are from Whole Foods (adequate, but I am looking for something a bit more . . .tasty). Any ideas? Thanks!

      The Village Market on Broadway Terrace (Oakland) carries wonderful ones. Very tasty, not commerical tasting. I don't remember the supplier.

        Thanks everyone. Last week I did a full on side-by-side comparison of the petit fours at Boniere and Neldams. I even involved a friend so that we could do a blind comparison. The winner, by landslide, was Boniere. I have seen only so so things said about them here, but the petit fours were fresh, moist and delicious (and the staff was even friendly!). Now I'll have to pit Boniere against The Village Market . . .all in a day's work. :) Thanks again!

          Thanks for reporting back -- glad the Boniere came through for you. I probably should give them more chances. I really liked the offerings under the previous owner, so I was disappointed when it changed hands and changed style some what (from more of a European style to more of a traditional American style), but now that the new ownership has been in place for a while, I should go back and check out more of their offerings.

        Neldham's in Oakland

        I love their silly petit fours. They are not only pretty and tasty but priced well.

          Last time I was in there, I was impressed by the selection of petit fours at Boniere Bakery in Alameda. In general their stuff is only okay, but the petit fours were pretty good.
