I love egg sandwiches and have eaten them for years and for some reason I found out this bakery had them and you could put your own together. So we were in town for just two nights but walked here for coffee and for an egg sandwich on sour dough bread with tomato and provolone and a great aioli sauce... More

I have been going to this little boutique bakery since I first came to Claremont to go to Pitzer College in the late seventies. They really haven't changed much in the intervening years. I absolutely love their cookies and their delicious sweet rolls. It's a lovely bakery. They cater to college students, but all are welcome.

If you want to be seen in Claremont, spend some time at Some Crust. The bread, pastries, cakes, sandwiches and coffee are always in high demand. Sometime, you can sit on the sidewalk and watch Claremont go by. Most customers get their orders "to go" but there are also regulars who you will surely see the next time you return.

The bakery is s-s-s-so good! It even has some items that are gluten free which makes it even better. Try the lemon bars!

Step in through their marvelously squeaky screen door and find a tempting assortment of baked goods and coffee. There are beautifully decorated small cakes to carry out, flakey croissant, buttery cookies, and fresh bread. Great source for tasty wedding cakes, but be sure to order far in advance.

Medium coffee and a pinwheel cost you $5.25. Foods tops, prices are tops too. This is a Claremont landmark I often see my neighbors there.

If you want a good cup of coffee along with a great morning slider or pastry, visit this place. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Always a treat to visit.

This bakery is a must visit if you are in Claremont. Great pastries and breakfast sliders. You customize your own slider by choosing your bread, veggie, meat and sauce. Really good.

Went there after reading TA reviews. After ordering, we were disappointed to be informed no roast beef was left in the early afternoon. Was a bit to get mine refunded and hubby kept his order. Wasn't anything spectacular, for the wait. I had to go across the street to a deli which was a forever wait. Thought I could recoup... More
