REVIEWS OF Alpine Pastry & Cakes IN California

Donna Estrada

Awesome bakery! Cupcakes, cookies, pastries all made with care. So glad first responders saved this bakery. If you haven’t tried them you must❣️ Speedy recovery Alpine

Saw this bakery when coming out from the nearby plaza, so I decided to check it out. I was intrigued by the selection of pastries. The bakery is big, and the staff courteous. I was so tempted to buy the big cake which caught my attention right away when I walked in; but I ended up buying different flavors of macarons. After trying, I have to say they belong to the bad macarons category--size too big, bumpy shells, & too much sugar--one of the worst I've tasted. Very disappointed!! Now I'm very hesitant to try the cakes, although they looked good.

Brijesh Yadav

One of my favorite bakaries. Love it always... Mango Moose is something I am big fan. Hidden gem of east Bay. I also like thier cup cakes.

Sandhya Francis

A classic that is still outstanding. Everything is good here and the customer service is excellent

jeffrey torres

What a treat to,find this marvelous restaurant is an historic location. Food excellent, service excellent, and ambiance too! We will bring all of our out of town guests.

Marlette West

Everything is made fresh everyday. So yummy. Try the German coffee cake

Keith Gilchrist

What a gem in Concord! Cakes are incredible. So many options. Very accommodating. Great pastries. Highly recommend for casual visits and special events.

Stan Stansbury

The best bakery in Concord, but that's not saying much. Costco industrial ingredients prepared on site. No butter in sight or smell. We really do like their Mexican Wedding Cookies, though. The bar is so low for bakeries, here and in most of the US, that the fact that they just get over it didn't impress me.

Gerardo Lopez

All it's good

Wanda Washington

Excellent pastries, nice new location, and friendly staff. Check out the menu.

arjun garg

i gave 3 because i think some items are just too sweet

Steve Webb

Pretty great selection of pastries, cakes, and cookies - be prepared to pay a little more for quality products. There's a reason they've been around as long as they have been. Can't go wrong with a birthday cake from Alpine ;)

Rainbow Shy

I ordered a red velvet cake for my birthday and the woman on the phone was very rude and upset whenever I asked about the details on the cake. The cake itself was dry and almost rough, like it was a few days old or something. The frosting was supposed to be cream cheese frosting, but it was more like regular buttercream. I don’t know if that’s just how they make their cream cheese frosting, but it wasn’t good in my opinion. Red velvet cake is my favorite type of cake and i was really disappointed when I got a dry, practically flavorless cake with the wrong type of frosting. My family has ordered cake from here before, but I’ve never liked any of them. The cakes just aren’t good here in my opinion.

Mike Gracy

Sweetest place in town!

Scot Long

Pleasant staff. Fair prices. Tasty products.

Heather Anderson

Amazing cakes, good prices, international deserts. By far the best bakery in the Bay Area.

Jeff Jensen

Has been a necessary stop for me anytime I'm in the area for the delicious baked goods.


Simply the best bakery in the whole area. An amazing variety of high quality pastries.

Medina Catic

Everything I got was extremely delicious!

Sarah Rojas

Always good here when I'm in charge of getting the cake. Everything taste so yummy.

Stephen H Zendt

Excellent and well managed!

Yvette Berry

Four stars because they don't have scones. Otherwise it's wonderful! And they have delicious hot coffee.

Cristal Powell

Best bakery by far. Not too many older style good bakeries around, too many fancy new doughnut and other shops popping up. This place always has gresh pastries, cakes, pies and custom made options available which is great given some advance notice. Only had one incident of the wrong cake but they quickly fixed the mistake and even gave us a refund to which we used again here for the awesome cheesecake. Nice friendly staff, always clean inside and private parking lot with plenty of parking. Wish the hours when they are open could be a little longer but its ok.

Karthick Govindaraju

Awesome pastries and desserts. People have travelled a long distance to come and eat at this place

jessica castelo

Just tried a vanilla cake with raspberry filling and fondant, it was Amazing! Super moist! CRAZY GOOD.

Ryan Giles

This bakery will not quit because they are currently to legit. I was looking for a new bakery and found this one in Concord. I currently live in Alameda, so we made the trip out there and this bakery did not disappoint. Super friendly staff and very knowledgeable about all things sugar and spice. They had a plethora of options and we tried several of their offerings. The experience overall was great and I would highly recommend to all.

Lori Haggerty

Great bakery! Love the new location. Good selection to choose from and always yummy!

odette estrada

gurpreet singh

There red velvet cake always is a hit!!

Linda Kearns

Great bakery nice assorted pastries and cakes and cookies.

Alissa Mendoza

We got our wedding cake here in May of 2018-- it was the most delicious and moist cake with lemon curd filling. They even let us bring in our own live succulents for the cake decor and they tastefully decorated the cake for us! Our guests couldn't get enough! Now any time we have a family get-together, we offer to bring the dessert so we can stop in and pick up something from Alpine! Yesterday we got a raspberry swirl cheesecake and it was a HUGE hit.

Shannon Tidwell

By far #1 bakery around!! Large selection of goodies. Fresh and delicious. Cant go wrong with anything you purchase from here..yummy


I love going to Alpine Bakery. It is an institution for many years. Now they are located at a new place at downtown Concord , I think about a year and a half. There are more tables to sit and enjoy that cappuccino and mango mousse dessert. They have beautiful cakes and delicious pastries for breakfast and for anytime of the day. I suggest that if you have a sweet tooth, come and try them. Maybe you'll bump into me.

Ruben Ironworker377 S.F Valenzuela

When it comes to ordering a Birthday cake, or cupcakes. And being that I live in Concord. I will ALWAYS go to Alpine Pastry. I LOVE THE CAKES AND PASTRIES. It's to die for.

Sasha Dorman

Has everything! So good. Great service!

vik 88

Very nice place . great staff and awesome products at great prices.

Dennis Karaim

It's been years since I went to Alpine. It was as delicious as I remembered. I had an apple crisp and it was heaven!

Victor Hernandez

The best cakes in the east bay, I leave in Hayward but when I am in the Concord area always stop to by a cake.


Coffee was lukewarm. I asked for a warm up in microwave but she gave me another cup of lukewarm coffee. Cup of 12 ounce coffee was only 2/3 full so it is only 8 ounce really. Pastry was good.

Robin Gibson

They never made the cake we went in and ordered and paid for it was for my father in laws 84th birthday. It did not bother them at all that this happened......[ We ordered it on Sept. 14th 2017 prepaid for pick up next day around 4:30 pm . Yes refunded my money no offer of another cake and no real explanation. I was raised on Alpine Cakes and was very disappointed. This is not the fault of the owner or management in my eyes all it boils down to is nobody wanted to make it. You don't misplace an order but find it when the customer shows up.]

Tammi Fabris

This bakery is awesome. What an amazing sight when you walk in and see so many displays of awesome food. The smell you encounter when you walk in is awesome. All of the desserts we purchased for our family dinner we're perfect.

Sergio Puentes

The holiday decorated cookies were fantastic, my 6yr old loved them. The family enjoyed the cupcakes as well.

elaine grab

Besr richest baked goods in the area. Eclairs come cream and custard. Both are good.

Larissa Levitt

I love Alpine pastry. I've been going there since I was a little girl. Now I'm sharing it with my daughters. We love everything we get!


This is a wonderful local bakery with a wide variety of cakes, pastries, cupcakes, and cookies. Over the years, their baked goods have remained consistently fresh and delicious, and the pricing affordable. Customer service is ever helpful and friendly as well!

Robyn Gutshall

Great pastries and they have Meringues$

Kim Coleman

Perfect as always

Brenna Clark

This bakery is legit. It's so legit that I could not control myself and ended up splitting an entire carrot cake with my niece for her 5th grade promo. We didn't eat the entire cake in one sitting, but we got half way there. And I have no regrets! It was delicious!

Bobby Burns

Bavarain Cream Puffs to die for!

Stephanie Holstein

Alpine Pastry & Cakes is absolutely terrific! From buying a few Danishes & Cookies to purchasing numerous assorted Pastries, Napoleon's, Cheesecake, etc. for a good- sized gathering at our ladies Luncheon at Church!! Many people couldn't wait to find out where you are located! The staff are, kind, curtious, and extremely knowledgeable!!

David Davis

Tres Leches cake is the best of it's kind


really disappointing that these guys won't do ANYTHING by email or text. You have to show up in person during their specific hours the cake desk is open. All because they are worried about color correction, even if you tell them color isn't an issue. Couldn't even get a straight answer if they could do the type of job I was looking for and they couldn't respond to that by phone either, the only answer was you'd have to come in and talk to the pastry chef in person. Poor customer service and really inconsiderate about people trying to avoid multiple trips that aren't necessary :( Going elsewhere with my business.

Paula Vega

I was looking for a good place where I can have different options and fresh pastries, cupcakes and cookies. I really loved the fact that it had donde made with almond meal which is my preference. I got a cookie, cupcake, blueberry cake, raspberry almond meal cake piece (princess cake) something like that. Everything was very good. I would suggest putting more peanut butter in the cookies but the rest was amazing. Keep up the great job, will keep you in mind when i need cakes.

Cindy Handlin

Homemade pies luke your Grandma use to make

Julius jervoso

Me and my wife checked this place out and after the visit felt ashamed we never took the time to go earlier. A very good variety of cookies and pastries that look fresh and delish. The lemon cookies were so nice with a hint of tart and the candies lemon inside was a bonus.

Ricky Serrano

Open early with lots of delicious baked goodness. They even filled a croissant with fudge for me.

Katherine Hayes

Wonderful bakery. Excellent cookies and pastries.

Mary Sue Echols

Paul moses

Great bakery and friendly staff

Steve Eckles

The major pastry and custom cake maker in Concord area. The decoration options for the cakes aren't amazing, but good enough for kids birthday's. Tasty small pastries to choose from.

Erika Barela

Yummy pastries and cakes better in new location

athedestroyer angie

The gingerbread cookies I found here were absolutely perfect. Big, yummy, and beautifully decorated. Everything looked amazing and smelling all the pastries cooking was heaven.

Carlos Diaz

This is really the best bakery in the eastbay. If you are invited to a wedding, get together, or party and wondering if you should go and the host says the cake is from alpine, go. Just go. You will not be disappointed. Maybe the conversation is boring. Maybe the kids are terrors. Maybe your friends drunk aunt is hitting on you. All night long. Take comfort knowing that you will get some of the best cake you will ever have. Yes it's that good.


Wide variety of cookies, meringue, pastries, strudel and more. All fresh and yummy.

A Hull

One of the last free standing bakeries left in this area. Good special occasion cakes.


Tasty, the choc.dipped almond horns are chewy and delicious. A little pricey but worth it.

Shannon Juno

Always awesome

Jacob Erwin

Great selection of pastries and cookies. Breakfast pastries are the best and soft pretzels on Fridays.

Kevin Van Lohuizen

Little to no customization of there items that you would expect like cupcakes.

Emmalee Carroll

Fantastic cheesecake but sometimes they sell out

Stephanie Layman

I’ve used Apline for my custom wedding cake, custom birthday cakes and anytime I’m feeling something sweet when in Concord (I come from Pittsburg) and have recommended Apline’s business to others which they’ve purchased their event cakes and cupcakes from. I was also planning on ordering my baby shower cake from them come this July. Today, I bought a pre-made Mother’s Day cake and a champagne cupcake, cupcake for myself for the drive home (because I’ve always wanted to try their champagne cake) and when walking out accidentally dropped just the cupcake out in the front parking lot as I wasn’t offered a bag. No big deal right? I went back in to see if I could possibly have it replaced as I told them I dropped it and the girl told me I’d have to pay another $3.00 for a new one. WTF where’s the customer service for a loyal customer? What I recommend now, to all that are reading this review is to try a more local small business who’s getting their feet off the ground and doesn’t necessarily have a store front yet or even Safeway close to home. I won’t be coming back here again.

Bev Sendaydiego

Large selection of baked goods. The princess cake and cappuccino mousse were excellent!

Sylvia Goemmel

One Bakery that uses the finest ingredients available. Follow them on Facebook to keep up with their Seasonal Specialty items. I've had their cakes since the early 1960s. Visit for the ability to see all their high end European Pastries & Cakes & authentic Danish & Coffee Cakes, Cookies, 2 choices for their "Gluten Free Cakes" using Almond Flour. Great hours, Great Staff.


Yummy cookies

Chris Cook

Always delicious

Joe Brennick

A true bakery. A great place for a sugar fix. Very friendly service.

lin signup

Loved the $4 Bavarian cream turnover. Coffee was nice.

Douglas Valenzuela

Great pastries, I live the apple turnovers.

Jessica K

This place has the best fresh pasteries in town!

john p ring

Hadn't been here in too many years to mention, but since I move back to Concord recently, and for nostalgia, what the heck. The location is different, I think it was a travel agency before, but the wafting smell of bakery was the same and unmistakable. Thank heaven, God or Mother Nature for whoever created that smell. It was late afternoon, ate good all day, I dined on a slice of cake and coffee. I pointed to the whole cake of what I wanted, but got a different looking slice of something similar. What the hell, it's cake and chocolate, how bad could it be... don't complain. And it was fantastic, but couldn't tell you its name, as I didn't order it. But it's near the chocolate mousse roll cake that I still harbor such desires for. Maybe another journey to Alpine Bakery is in my nearest future. Next time, I will skip the coffee, as it just wasn't all that good. But then again, I'm accustomed to Peet's when great coffee is needed.

Ursula Buford

Wow what a good looking pastry shop.

Griffin Meeks

My grandma likes this place. That's how you know its not good but great.

melanie r

Super friendly staff, clean and cozy,delicious almond raspberry cake!

R DuBois

Beautiful cakes, cookies & pastries with a wide variety of designs - from traditional to very whimsical !

Darleen Serrano

Best bakery in town!

Icen Kont

Everything in this store is good. Cookies taste great and their macaroons are delicious. Also I have tried the merengues and they are good.

Young forLife

Best princess cake in the area.

Vanessa Aldama

Awesome local bakery I bought some cherry pies for thanksgiving from this bakery and they were amazing. I often go here for brownies and other sweet treats too.

Jerry Prado

Best bakery

Mike Goodman

Wonderful cakes and pastries. Great service also

Charlie Baudelaire

I have purchased cakes for my daughter’s from here twice. I end up spending about $80 on a 10 inch cake that is decorated. I went in today to buy a cake and as I watched and listened to all three of the women that were working I realized that they really don’t care about customer service. I guess there aren’t a lot of cake places around here. I wasn’t treated very well either and as I waited for the woman to come back to assist us I just decided to get cupcakes from Whole Foods. They’re better and cheaper. One woman offered my 9 year old daughter a cupcake and then asked for me to pay for it. So weird. Screw this place - it’s low class.

Tammy Rodriguez

So delicious

Maria Hutchinson

Staff is friendly and efficient. I'm so glad I found them. I thought they closed from their old location. Traditional bakery. Wonderful!

Pamela Jean

Nice goodies, but be careful ordering cakes. Everything you add costs $15 extra. I.E. certain colors you may want aren't free. Some fillings are extra, lil much if you ask me

Kim Sanders

The cupcakes are heavenly. The cheesecake is to die for. Worth every penny.

Camelia Cirjan

Really nice european cakes and cookies (and more). Would be nice if the would serve coffees in a nice glass cup and cakes on china paltes instead on paper. And also some honey and brown sugar for the coffee and tea. Just some thoughts...


There is no better Bakery for pastry and cakes in the Diablo Valley then Alpine

Arjan Prad

Been here many times but first time i ever felt discriminated. There is a blonde lady with short hair, mid 20s working on sunday 6.11.17 around 11.25am. Condescending tone of asking what i wanted, harsh reply & suggesting when ordering coffee how i should order & said i was wrong in my own order. She then moved to the next (white) customer, super chill, relaxed tone etc. Never am i coming back here no matter how good their pastries are!

john armitage

This place is absolutely amazing. Everything I've tried there has been fresh and delicious.

Lori DaRosa

Absolutely delicious cakes and pastries. We brought tea cookies to share with friends. They were a big hit. We get treats for ourselves.

Jeffrey Brogan

Awesome chocalate cake for 4th of July, decoraterd,and chic. Mousse center. Delicious

Chelsey mine

Grandma got a cake and a smash cake for my baby son. Really enjoyed the food product from this bakery. Did a wonderful job on the matching smash cake.

Lance Brittain

I recently moved to Concord from San Francisco and stumbled upon Alpine when trying to find the Safeway. It is not even a five minute walk from the Concord BART Station. Each time I visit Alpine I get something new and each first bite is always the same - I close my eyes and the layered tastes takes me on a roller coaster ride soaring, twisting, upside down - always ending with a smile and racing to end of the line for that gotta go again excitement. The only downside to the ride was that there was not a note left on my plate which meant the ride was over. FYI - Now that I can legally get married, I would definitely order my cake gro

Don Fiddes

Very good bakery!

Richard Block

Love the cake thank you

Hector Ahumada

Once a week Im there,,, love that place,,, very friendly.

Christopher J B Scholten

Nice location, and there's a table outside I a nice garden with an umbrella. The pastry I had was not fresh. The restroom was not open for public use. There's a car park.
