Welcome to Arizmendi San Rafael, your worker-owned neighborhood cafe. We are here to enhance the lives of our customers, empower workers, and foster sustainable business in our community. All of our artisan crafted baked goods are prepared from scratch with joy and care. We proudly serve freshly brewed locally roasted organic coffee and bake with finest ingredients. It is our mission to share our love of baking with you in the most delicious, affordable, and nourishing way possible.
Berkeley’s gourmet institution, the Cheese Board, is the model and inspiration for our products and our way of doing business. The Cheese Board is a founding member of the Arizmendi Association, which includes five bakeries all dedicated to serving our community top-quality products and creating locally-rooted jobs. Each bakery is cooperatively owned by its crew of artisan bakers.
