Introducing Zest Bakery in San Carlos CA 94070

Introducing Zest Bakery in San Carlos CA 94070

City of San Carlos, CA 94070San Carlos, California, is a delightful town on the mid-Peninsula, known for its good schools, fabulous library and many great services. It's slogan is "The City of Good Living."

High on the list of things that make this a great place to live is the downtown. San Carlos Avenue and Laurel Street are home to many restaurants and other friendly stores, where people are encouraged to browse and shop. One of the newest places in town is Zest Bakery.

Zest Bakery, San Carlos CA 94070Since the Grand Opening in mid-July, Zest Bakery has seen a steady increase in traffic. One reason might be it's location, just around the corner from busy Laurel Street. The main reason, I think, is that fills a niche. 100% of Zest Bakery's products are gluten-free. Yes, this means all the breads, cookies, muffins and more that are great for celiacs and good for everyone -- and they taste delicious.
(My personal favorites so far: the oatmeal-fig cookie, the ginger snap, and the poppy seed bread)

Zest Bakery is located at 1224 Arroyo Avenue in downtown San Carlos. It offers seating indoor and outdoors if you can't wait to get home to enjoy your treat. I haven't yet learned how the name Zest Bakery was chosen, but in chatting with owner Patrick Luke, I discovered he and his fiancee have a real Zest for living!

No matter how the name was chosen, listen to what Patrick has to tell us about why this bakery, and why the San Carlos location:

--- Come for a visit; Stay for a lifetime!

Now I'm craving poppy seed bread to have with my morning coffee - LOL.  Sounds like a great community addition - and the gluten free items are in such increasing demand it seems.

Mary Kay, the ginger snaps are great, too. But my long-time favorite cookie is oatmeal raisin, so I'll probably get that the most often.
