Competitive seating on the inside, amazing selection of cakes and other desserts. When it is nice out, there is the option of outdoor seating on the busy street. Nice tea presentation. Mostly people my age (people in their 40's 50's and 60's), this bakery is a local institution. I've never had a bad experience here. Go with an empty stomach... More

I love coffee there. It's strong and bold. Most of the American espresso coffee is not enough for European coffee lovers. Here, you can have it! Cakes there are European style too. They have Gluten/Dairy/Nuts/Egg free sweets. Surprising!

We visited this little bakery and had the most delicious rum chocolate cake. We also took some peach, and berry pies to go. The crust on the pies is just like the one my grandma used to make, flaky, buttery, heaven. The shop itself is kinda small inside, they have two outdoor tables next to a beautiful tall tree. Make...

Crixa is just one of those personal small coffee and cake places you'll want to visit daily. It doesn't get any more simpler than that.

This little bakery is known for its pie, cakes, and assorted goodies. The wife is a wonderful baker, and she uses only the best ingredients - think butter and real cream. Nothing artificial allowed here. The bakery offers delicious coffee, and a large selection of teas. Choose a slice of something made this morning and your drink, and sit down... More

Best pastries in Berkeley, and excellent coffee and tea.Nut cakes, rugalah, shortbread, fruit pies, by the slice or to take home.

Visitors shouldn't overlook the fresh fruit seasonal pies at Crixa: they taste better than Grandma used to make and show off beautifully. My favorite now is the pumpkin pie, but during the summer the peach and blackberry selection is fabulous, too. Everything at Crixa is mouth-watering and not too sweet -- a mistake often made by other bakeries.

The savory baked goods are as special as the cakes. The European, Hungarian touch is very apparent and delicious, especially the hazelnut flavor!

I "have" been a fan of Crixa Cakes. But as good as their bakery is, success has spoiled this place. I would give them an award for the most arrogant bakery in the Bay Area. They run out of a lot of things, so when I make a special trip to Crixa Cakes, I always call and pre-order. Well, now... More
