If you’re a sugar feign, chocoholic or just a slave to your sweet tooth, Sacramento has an excellent selection of bakeries to help you get that fix. 

Freeport Bakery

Freeport Bakery is to Sacramento what cheese steak is to Philly. It is a staple for every Sacrament-an and a must stop if you are passing through. Famous for their baked goods, like cakes, and pastries, Freeport offers up a plethora of other yummy things. The potato knishes are out of this world and the lemon cooler cake in all it?s sour packed pucker goodness is a must try.

Karen’s Bakery Cafe and Catering

Grateful Bread

2543 Fair Oaks Blvd.
Sacramento, Ca 95825

The instant you step foot into Grateful Bread, the smells slaps you in the face, in a good way. For lack of a better way to say this, it makes you want to lick the walls, seriously. The menu is full of surprises, bread, cinnamon rolls, huge cookies, and muffins are bountiful, you can’t stop at just one of anything. In the wise words of Jerry Garcia, “You do not merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only ones who do what you do,” and Grateful Bread does just that!

Roseville Bread Company

411 Roseville Square
Roseville, Ca 95678
Closed Sundays

Remember when you went to the wharf in San Francisco, and got a nice hunk of ACME bread? Me too. Now you don?t have to drive a hundred miles out of the way to get it either, thanks to Roseville Bread Company. If you want to compliment your fancy gourmet dinner and blow your friends socks off, make sure to make a pit stop at RBC. Your friends will rave, and I think owner Marty Ellison might even let you take credit for the bread if your nice.

Ettore’s European Bakery

2376 Fair Oaks Blvd
Sacramento, Ca 95825

Ettore’s offers a charming interpretation of the classic French Bistro without all of the fuss. The bakery portion of Ettore’s is quite frankly something not from this planet. Custom birthday cakes, pastries, White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake, excuse me for one minute??wow! If you are a chocoholic, then the chocolate truffle cake is a must, just don?t be shocked if you wake up the next morning in the kitchen with chocolate fingers?….busted.
