When I worked in Berkeley between 2006-2008, I would bike a 5mile round trip from the studio to the bakery which is a block or two from the Pixar studios. Those two years I loved biking over from south-west area in Berkeley to that Emeryville corner, it would make my belly so happy to enjoy a couple of their delicious pizza slices, great coffee.
I made pals with their staff and enjoyed chatting with the customers who like, me enjoyed having a slice, pastry or a break in their school/workday. A few years have passed and I’m glad Rafa and I have remained friends. At that time, his band (¡FUGA!) I had first heard through local Berkeley station KPFA, so I think we were both equally surprised we knew of it the first or second day we met. Music connections, I tel you. We have since stayed in touch and I love checking out his band at local venues whenever possible.
The staff at the bakery is super nice. Their pastries delicious y there is always something good happening in that corner in Emeryville – I now reminiscence with cariño and miss going to weekly.
Anyways, that is my story with the Emeryville Arizmendi.
