This Berkeley bakery is funky un-chic but the baked goods are really good...and there's fresh coffee and tea and pizza later in the morning. As per my title -- the cheese fruit danishes are not cheap but they are deliciously YUM!

Found this place and so happy I did. Started with a slice of amazing pizza. Fresh, sumptuous and generous. I ordered a second piece. I had to order something sweet after eyeing the amazing offerings. I chose the chocolate pave cupcake and the perfect choice. Amazing!! Service was so friendly, great energy and genuine people. Get in here!

Berkeley has no shortage of great pizza. Count the single offering per day from Nabolom as one of your go to sources. Like The Cheese Board, they only make one type per day, but in contract to CB, there is rarely a wait. Go and enjoy.

My brother-in-law used to live in Berkeley and said that Nabolom Bakery was a must for our trip...he wasn't wrong! We grabbed a couple of scones on our way out of town and weren't disappointed! They were quite pricey, but seemed pretty on-par for California prices. The Jalapeno Cheese Scone was amazing - it sounded strange, but wow, was it... More

I thought that the old Nabalolm Bakery was the best bakery in Berkeley. The Newbolom is not as good as the place I recall. The prices are higher, and that can be justified, but the quality is much lower. The new version of the classic Nabolom Twist was poor. The old one was light and airy with a perfect balance... More

Recently reopened under new management, Nabolom is better than it used to be. The pastries are wonderful whether sweet or savory, and they serve pizza by the slice for lunch and dinner. Highly recommended and a great value.

I used to stop at the old Nabolom, then was sad it closed--but am thrilled about Nabolom 2.0. Though the place still has a funky vibe, it has been cleaned up, for the better. My husband and I stopped by recently. He got a cheese roll. I picked up two killer chocolate chip cookies. Both were excellent. People were streaming... More

Nabolom is ynder now ownership. They have the same and improved array of baked goods and delicious pizza for lunch and dinner. They make a vegetarian pizza daily. They also make half baked pizza to fully bake at home. They also make a kids pizza with cheese and tomatoes.

Good coffee, nice vibe, good outdoor seating, lovely neighborhood for strolling with pastry and mug in hand. Easy spot to bring your dog on a Sunday morning as well.

A cooperative... Read their history on their web site... Very interesting and it works. It's interior is rustic and of course eclectic Great service. If someone asked me about this place a year from now... the thing I would remember the most was their peanut butter cookie and the fact that they donate their bread (individual needy) at the end...
