Cake for breakfast at Masse's Pastries (Berkeley, CA)

On the morning of my birthday, my parents asked me, "What do you want for breakfast?"

The answer is always cake. Specifically, cake from Masse's Pastries, which is my favorite local bakery in Berkeley. So at 9am on a Sunday, we went for cake and tea.

So here's a little pro-tip for all you kids out there whose parents won't let you eat cake for breakfast. Just wait until you're a 20-something 'adult'. Then your parents will let you eat all the cake for breakfast you want. It's magical.

P.S. Then my friend Annelies Zijderveld of The Food Poet made me some birthday Earl Grey lollipops out of my other friend Anita Chu's lollipop cookbook!


  1. looks like the perfect breakfast :)

    & Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy birthday! I love the look of that green one -- a green tea or pistachio religieuse?

  3. Happy Birthday and this is the perfect way to start the day!

  4. happy birthday! i was in la with some friends a couple weekends ago and managed to have huckleberry's blueberry cornmeal cake for breakfast and princess cake from a bakery in culver city for lunch.

  5. Love your birthday style! This is the way to celebrate! : )

  6. Cake for breakfast, what a treat!

  7. I'm a little embarrassed because I've been following your blog for years and I've only just realized you are located near Berkeley! I'm a third year student at Cal and now I have to go try Masse's Pastries. Love this blog.
