Alameda for Pastries, Cheese and Wine
I third them as well - picked up something sweet after a stop by Burma Superstar for lunch (first time ever for the tea leaf salad - yum!) The stollen they had in the sample basket was excellent, but I decided on one of their carrot cake "sandwiches" (two rounded carrot cake slices with the frosting smushed in the middle). I liked it - not too sweet, and lots of carrots in evidence.
For those in the neighborhood on the weekends, it looks like the City of Alameda has put in free parking in all their metered spaces for the holidays.
