States Coffee X Bread
The first Berkeley outpost of the East Bay coffee shop and bread bakery debuted in October. The coffee and pastries are certainly nothing to sneeze at, with Subrosa natural process coffee and vegan donuts from Oakland’s Donut Farm. But the wild fermented bread itself has a separate following, Instagram account and all. The country bread and baguettes are most popular, with each loaf taking two days to mix, ferment, and bake. Daily specials are an extra perk, with Sundays offering a gruyere, rosemary, and black pepper loaf.
How to order: Walk in.
