Baked (East Bay)

A staple after working out at Waterfront Park, Baked is a quaint cafe that makes coffee, cakes, tarts, quiches, muffins, cookies, teas, and probably more.  Tidbit: Their sweet and salt brownie was on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" on the Food Network.  So yes...I wanted to try it.
Ok, yum.  Although, I was not in the mood for brownies (for breakfast).  I also sampled my party's foods...cinnamon roll, some kind of chocolate brownie buns with frosting in between, and have had their quiche in the past.
The bad: This place is able to tempt you to eat unhealthy, but you can stick with quiche and coffee.  I also did not taste the salt in the brownie (maybe the batch issue).
The good:  I've not had a bad experience with what I've eaten at Baked.  The frosting they use is incredibly creamy.  The brownie is what a brownie should taste like, the epitome of brownie, all brownies should want to be this brownie.  Quiches are not too oily, but clean and pure, fresh.
The conclusion: A cool place to enjoy breakfast, coffee, friends, yourself, and SWEETS.
