The day I went to this bakery, it was an absolutely stunning day in the city, at least as soon as the pouring rain stopped. There are benches and chairs outside that provide the perfect setting for some good old fashioned carb-bonding time and inside there is a lot of light and bread lines the walls.
On this particular excursion, I sampled the cheese bread (a delicious whole wheat bread covered in perfectly crisped asiago), a mint double chocolate chip cookie, and the pizza of the day. As far as I can tell, each day Arizmendi makes a new type of pizza. The day I went, the toppings were as followed: sautéed mushrooms, parsley, parmesan, spinach, and Rosemary oil. It was perfect. I think the pizza was $20, the cookie $2, and the cheese bread somewhere around $3 (maybe?). Point is, they were all worth it.

so he added pepperoni
