Our local bakery shop has been an institution in Pinole, California for generations. The Bear Claw Bakery has served donuts, pastries and bear claws that the locals love.. They recently announced they would be opening for dinner hours and serving pizza. We decided to give them a try. I like pizza and of course who does not like a good bear claw.
The Bear Claw Bakery is a small family run business that is very popular in the morning hours. We were there on their inaugural weekend of opening for dinner hours. The menu is small with a variety of pizza and of all things tater-tots. We ordered the :Grizzly Bear Pizza"; creamy marinara sauce, pepperoni, salami, ham, chicken and bacon. The bacon was the selling point for me. It was very decent and we were satisfied. The service was genuinely sincere in trying to please. It did need a little polish but this was the opening weekend. We may return to try other pizzas and of course the Bear Claws.
