Miscellaneous Info Relevant to Your Shoot:
Airy Parisian Bakery w/ Kitchen & Storefront Cafe
Our bakery boasts a lovely, open concept storefront with plenty of natural lighting from wall-to-wall windows. With room for seating and mingling for up to 45 guests in the store front alone, this bakery venue works well for small to large film crews.
We have played host to ABC's Blackish, Netflix's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Food Network's Hollywood Cakes, and more.
With minimalistic, clean cut, and neutral toned decor, the space is incredibly versatile and can easily be transformed to fit the mood and theme of your choosing. Furniture can be moved and decor may be placed to your liking.
Tucked a step away from the main store front area is a cozy office outfitted in tones of white, pink, and gold with beautiful concrete floors. The office includes a desk, shelving unit, and eclectic and fun mismatched seating.
The rear two-thirds of the building plays home to a full, commercial kitchen that includes baking equipment such as ovens, a walk-in refrigerator, stainless steel prep tables and shelving, mixers, cooling racks, an industrial sink, supply room, and more.
We are located on the brink of a residential neighborhood and are neighbors to a winery and guitar shop, not with medium to low foot traffic.
There is street parking in front of the bakery as well as dedicated spots in a hidden parking lot behind the bakery, making load in and load out a breeze. We also have a petite storage room and hallway which can be accessed directly from the parking lot. Crews most often use this space to store personal belongings and to set up catering.
There will always be a manager onsite to watch over the production process.
Prices listed are our typical base fees and fluctuate depending on length and invasiveness of production. Prices currently listed are reflective of crews of 2-5 that are non-invasive, film out of normal business hours, and/or only use a very small portion of the space for the duration of the shoot. Productions with large crews or that result in us closing doors to customers are priced in a higher price range not listed.
