Pizza Week Continued: Village Bakery


I love that pizza comes in all shapes and sizes: deep dish, thin crust, traditional, gourmet – it’s all good to me. Yet, there is something to be said for the walk-up pizza-by-the-slice counter. One of my favorite local pizzerias is Village Bakery, which serves gourmet pizza slices at a small counter in downtown Davis. They keep it simple with three options: cheese, pepperoni and veggie. Slices are fairly large and cost between $2.25 and $2.75. There are two small tables in the corner of the bakery, but most people take their slices to-go to enjoy at home or on the park benches located outside of the bakery. It’s fun to sit outside on the park benches and watch how many people are in-and-out of this buzzing little pizza counter.


As its name indicates, Village Bakery makes more than just pizza – their bread is to die for! You can pick up a loaf at the 2nd Street (pizza counter) location, the Davis Food Co-Op or Taylor’s Market in Sacramento. I can’t go to the Farmers Market (where they have a stand on Saturdays) without picking up a loaf of the jalapeño cheddar cheese bread – so good!

And it gets better: the owners of Village Bakery just opened a sit-down restaurant on the corner of 4th and G Streets in downtown Davis, called Village Pizza and Grill. The restaurant is newly remodeled, has a large patio and opened in late August serving the famous Village pizzas, as well as an extended menu of salads, burgers and beers on tap. I haven’t gone yet, but if you have, leave a comment let us know what you think!
