OC Bakeries

With the recent discussion pro and con of LA bakeries I am wondering what might be the best in OC?

  1. Bump....any suggestions?

    1. Blackmarket Bakery or Poul's Bakery are my usual destinations.

      1. I really like Heidelberg Pastry Shop in Laguna Niguel. They make delicious cakes and their blueberry muffins are wonderful.

        1. Katella Deli


          Black and White Cookies (soft and lemonish)

          Any special order birthday cake (love chocolate w/ whipped cream frosting)

          Chinese Cookies (soft almond cookie w/ blob of chocolate frosting)

          Cheesecake (light fluffy style)


          Cherry Angel Food Cake

          Katella Deli-Restaurant
          4470 Katella Ave, Los Alamitos, CA 90720

          1. re: Oh Robin

            Katella Deli also has a delicous and gorgeous chocolate cake with rasberry frosting and a chocolate lattice work across the top - my daughter's favorite cake, and bags of bread heels for those who love the fat, crusty heels of loaves. It's usually their rye, but sometimes they have mixed bags.

          2. Are you looking for more of a cookies and cake bakery, a patisserie style or a bread & baguette type of bakery? I don't think there is one bakery in OC that does all three very well.

              Some of each would fill the report, don't you think? Seems a needed report.
              For me, patisserie AND cakes....and whatever else they might excell at!

                I get bread from Cortina's... it's fantastic.

                  Cafe Blanc for patisserie - in on 17th St. in Costa Mesa. I like this place because they are not overly sweet.

                  French's Cupcake Bakery as on 17th St. in Costa Mesa. Great place for cookies and cakes.

                  C'est Si Bon in Newport Beach is known for their baguettes and supply a bunch of restaurants in the area. They are a bit heavier then one might like.
