Bakery El Sol is a small Latino-owned family bakery located in Oakland’s Fruitvale district. The owners moved here 10 years ago from Mexico City in search of better opportunities. They began their journey working at a small bakery in Oakland. There, they learned how to make every Mexican sweet bread you can think of. In 2008, the family decided to branch out and opened their own bakery in the Fruitvale Public Market. With perseverance and hard work, they were able to succeed as one of the most recognized bakeries in Oakland, California.
Today, the family is proud to continue their legacy by baking some of Oakland’s favorite pan dulce. Customers rave about their delicious cakes, especially their amazing Tres Leches cake. Other yummy baked goods include cheesecakes, pastries, breads, cookies, donuts and even fresh juice, all at incredibly reasonable prices!
Stop in in the morning for their wonderful selection of fresh baked pastries. Do you have a themed birthday party or special celebration coming up? You can place an order for a customized cake that will look and taste great! From weddings to baptisms, you can’t go wrong ordering your cake at Bakery el Sol.
The bakery is located across the street from Fruitvale BART, making it an easy stop for a light breakfast or a delicious surprise for the office. Metered street parking can be found along East 12th Street, but it fills up quickly. Additional residential parking can usually be found within a few blocks.
