Great cream eclairs 2/19/2010

I love their cream eclairs-- the chocolate frosting is too sweet for me so I usually take it off. Mmmm, tastes like ice cream, only it's not frozen. The cream puffs are just as good. The custard eclairs also are delicious, only I prefer the cream eclairs.\r \r Their strawberry slices are great too--basically strawberry shortcake, only with chiffon cake rather than shortcake. The mocha slice tastes... good, but the buttercream inside doesn't float my boat.\r \r The chocolate surprise slice contains raspberry jam/jelly, which is the surprise. It also contains chocolate mousse. Overall this cake slice is good, but a little too sweet for me. more

Boston Creme Pie! 11/18/2009

their Boston Creme Pie is the best ever; just like the kind I was brought up with when I was a kid. The cake is light and tender and the custard is just delicious! My kids thought it was the perfect food when first introduced to this yummy confection! more

Best Strawberry Cake 12/30/2008

I absolutely love their strawberry cake. It's not too sweet and the cake layers are fluffy and light. Their cookies are quite tasty as well and very cutely decorated! more

Historic 10/26/2008

My husband's family has been coming to Virginia Bakery for generations. Consistently good cakes, cookies and the butter cream tart is to die for!! I have ordered several cakes and have never had an issue. more

Cupcakes! 8/28/2007

It's your standard bakery. For some weird reason it reminds me of bakery's in LA. Maybe it's the era of the cases inside? \r \r You can buy individual cupcakes. It's like it was someone's birthday in your third grade class all over again. While they aren't as good as the Cupcakery up the street they're A) cheaper and B) more authentic to that store-bought/box cupcake experience. Yes, I am counting this as a definite plus.\r \r Also, if you want any kind of themed sheet cake, this is the place to go. Grocery stores in Berkeley either have weak or non-existent bakery services and gourmet bakeries just won't do a football or Pokemon cake. more

Delicious Cakes 4/3/2007

Virginia Bakery is a famous landmark in Berkeley. It is one of the few remaining traditional bakeries in the East Bay. Their cakes are popular favorites for birthdays and special occasions including weddings. A popular favorite that quickly sells out is their excellent champagne cake All their cookies and other baked delicacies are also delicious. Friday and Saturday are very busy as the bakery is closed on Sunday. A small parking lot is located behind the bakery. more

Good old-fashioned bakery 8/4/2006

Virginia Bakery is a nice old-fashioned neighborhood bakery that has been in the same location for a long time. They have a big glass case showcasing their tasty treats, which are very attractive. The cookies are great! Sometimes they offer free samples of the cookies and other items. The cakes are also excellent, but be warned that they come with a thick buttercream frosting that can be a little too rich even for a frosting lover. Also, if you are looking for organics or other crunchy granola stuff like you find elsewhere in the Gourmet Ghetto, you may want to stay away since I'm pretty sure they use all kinds of food coloring and maybe preservatives, like most (non-Berkeley) bakeries. As I said, the place is old-fashioned. And good!! more

Good danish bakery 5/24/2006

I've been coming to this establishment for over 40 years and found the baked items to be very consistent and good. Not exactly a low calorie establishment, but ooh soo good. Pros: Good bakery Cons: not good for dieters more

Fresh Local Bread 4/19/2003

My student co-op bought day-old bread from Virginia Bakery for a semester. They were very friendly and helpful and the bread was always delicious. Their cakes and pastries always looked really tasty too. I enjoy even walking by the bakery, because it emanates a wonderful smell... more
