Arizmendi bakery is set up how we think all grocery store pick-n-mix stations should be, but instead of choosing from a bunch of candy and definitely skipping over the banana Runts, Arizmendi has endless bread options. Fill up a bunch of pastry pouches with cheese rolls, focaccia with toppings like kale and cheese, and sourdough croissants that might feel dense, but are still flaky when you bite into them. They also do pizzas that change up frequently, but are always delicious if it’s too late in the day for coffee and a pastry.
