Friendly staff with exceptional food! The carrot cake was the best I've ever had and affordable. It's close to the quaint little town of Capitola so you can take your food to go for a picnic on the beach. They have everything from breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and drinks to make the whole family happy. The only down fall is the there is always a line. The secret is out....Gayle's Bakery is fantastic!

Over the last twenty years, Gayle's has been our favorite spot. They have NEVER let us down. If you are traveling on Highway 1, you MUST stop and enjoy their baked goods and mealtime treats. Wine is available. It will be crowded with locals, as well. Check their website for online ordering to bring goodies to your door.

We were there last year, and our visit this year, for lunch, convinced us to keep coming back. It was VERY crowded, but within 10 minutes or so our order was in and we were soon seated in the covered outside area. If you don't mind some crowds and having to stake out a table, and have no problem picking out what you want from display cases, then this is a great place to sample some very delicious food. The bakery is itself awesome, with great breads.

The desserts were fantastic, we also tried garlic breads and lunch items which were delectable. It was a stop locals do not like to miss, and I can understand why!

A wonderful bakery, always full of clients eager to get their quick meals, bread and pastries. The breakfast biscuit sandwiches are very good, and so are their croissant sandwiches. Gayle's makes a terrific Francese loaf, both in its traditional version and a crustier option (cooked for a shorter amount of time in a hotter oven). The pastries and cakes also stand out. One of our top options for a quick breakfast or lunch in the area.
