Sweet Nostalgia - Joseph's Bakery: San Pedro CA

Tucked away on a quiet side street in San Pedro, California, is Joseph’s Bakery, and it is truly a retro gem. Stocked with baked goodies, it's been in business 43 years and boasts a vintage cash register that rings in at 55 years. Ka-chiiinngg!

This ain't no Starbucks

My sister and brother-in-law live nearby, and after a neighborhood stroll we were up for a little nosh. Sis suggested we skip the nearby Starbucks with the 180 degree ocean view (they have those down there) and hit the bakery. And I'm glad we did. No de-caf soy vanilla lattes for us! Instead, we got a few slices of pizza, a couple of lemon bars and a brownie. All were tasty – but for me, the real draw was the place itself. So next time you’re in San Pedro, take a carbo-loaded, sugar-coated step back in time and check out Joseph’s Bakery.
