Feel Good Bakery, Alameda?

  • 5

I have a coupon I want to use at Feel Good Bakery expires 10/31/10 & called to find out what they have for the season.

Spice Pumpkin macarons - Melanie liked this before. When I called today 10/19/10 they said they didn't have it. Maybe I could special request this.

They have Orange Chocolate Macarons; chocolate pistachio macaron; pistachio macaron $2 ea

Pumpcho bread - pumpkin/chocolate bread something about $3 is that per slice? Loaves can special order - not sure cost. Hounds favorite.

Pumpkin brioche $2 - anyone try it?

I should ask them to make bread with Meg Whitman or Jerry Brown face on each loaf like they did for the Presidential election.

Anything I shouldn't miss out on? I think I'll try for the weekend.

  1. Skip the pumpkin brioche. The pumcho is sort of in the shape of a muffin,

    Things I buy there regularly:

    Breads -- they're all good
    Bread sticks -- yummy!
    Croissants
    Bearclaws
    Macarons (all the flavors I've tried have been good)

      1. I know hhc's Alameda field trip has come and gone, but I figured this would be a good place to put my consolidated list of things I've tried here:

        From most to least favorite:
        foccacia - really, really terrific stuff. I think it's tied with Liguria Bakery for the best in the Bay.

        tarts - I tried a lemon one that was really excellent. Great, balanced filling.

        sweet baguettes - I really love the texture - springier and silkier than most. It doesn't have the well-developed flavor of an outstanding baguette, but it's one of the better ones I've had.

        croissants - consistently good. I always get chocolate.

        cupcakes - I'm actually not much of a cupcake person, so this rating is based solely on the chocolate cupcake with Jack Daniel's spiked ganache frosting I had today. Great flavor and texture.

        macarons - I really liked the passion fruit one I had today - in general, the texture's not as light as I'd like, but if you like a chewy macaron, these are pretty good.

        rustic-style breads - these have been consistently disappointing to me, in part because they look so beautiful. Once I cut into them, though, I find the flavors undeveloped and the crumb lacking in elasticity.
