 Emporium of Delights

Gayle’s Bakery opened in 1978 as a small neighborhood bakery that has since grown to a bustling, 10,000 square-foot establishment with an Italian deli and rotisserie, an espresso bar, and a grab-and-go case that’s perfect for picnics on the beach. The huge, glass cases are filled with gorgeous fresh pastries, cakes, cookies, bread, sandwiches, salads, roasted meats, sides, soups, the list goes on.

Oh and did we mention they have Blue Plate specials that rotate everyday. They’re the perfect quick dinner and, for many, enough for two people. Chose from dishes like bistro steak and miso glazed salmon. They’re made fresh every afternoon and ready for pickup cold at 2 p.m., hot at 4 p.m. You can download the monthly calendar here.
