I've been here a couple of years ago & made a stop today. Got the lemon cookies, which I was told was good. "Good" isn't the word I'd use- delicious or even scrumptious comes to mind. Also these cookies are not little cookies, they're a good size. I am tempted to go back before my trip is over. The place... More

Even though I live in Michigan now, I dream about the wonderful cookies at Some Crust. Last time I was in Claremont, I stopped in on a Thursday because I knew it was Pecan Shortbread Cookie day (they have some cookies available on certain days). They have coffee, cakes, Danish, breads, croissants and everything I have had has been delicious.... More

A neighborhood institution. I can't think of anyone who doesn't love this bakery. The Mocha cookies are my wife's favorite. I like the Danish and bread. Sit outside and enjoy some people watching. This place is popular with young and old alike. Come on by, order a coffee and Danish and while away some time.

I have stopped here on an occasional whim. Having recently returned from Monterey, CA, I was in the mood for some croissants. Our memory of the croissants we purchased at The Paris bakery in Monterey, I was excited about stopping at Some Crust to get some. Came home and was disappointed that they were so dense and flat that putting... More

Still beating the competition- with a delicious array of pastries. Always easy to hang out outside or buy stuff to take home. Decent coffee having to compete with Starbucks less than a block away. Very good

Great bakery offering delicious buttery danishes.... great coffee... cookies... cakes and scones and bread will gladly add pounds to the hips!!!! Breakfast sliders are really good but not a fast order... takes about 15 mins... but worth the wait!

If I only knew how spoiled I was to enjoy Some Crust all the years I worked for the Claremont Colleges (1989-1997) and the years I made trips from West L.A. to Claremont just for their cookies (1997-2005)! I've lived in Portland, OR for 11 years and there is nothing close to Some Crust; for that matter in Seattle also... More

First of all, there is the café side, which gives Starbucks a run for their flavour, for less bucks-bucks; rich-tasting fair trade coffee from Monkey & Son, in all sorts of permutations. There are only a few tables, but it makes for an intimate feel and a great meeting-place. Then there is the bakery side, accessed by leaving and entering... More
