Gayle’s Bakery & Rosticceria

Gayle’s Bakery opened in 1978 as a small neighborhood bakery perched above the historic seaside village of Capitola, California. Today, Gayle’s Bakery is a bustling, 10,000 square-foot food emporium with an Italian deli and rotisserie, an espresso bar, and a grab-and-go case that’s perfect for picnics on the beach. Everyday, we transform the best natural ingredients like real butter, fresh eggs, and organic flour into more than 500 mouthwatering treats. Our gleaming cases are filled with fresh, beautiful, made-from-scratch pastries, cakes, cookies, breads, sandwiches, salads, and hot entrees. Our bakery has long been a gathering spot for locals and travelers alike. The service is casual. Take a number and relish the wait while you try to decide among the myriad of treats.
