Bakery - Store Departments
The baking arts represent a craft demanding the highest levels of talent, flair, and finesse, and because of that we have chosen bakery partners to create treats fresh and sweet, every day. Whether it’s Viktor Benês Bakery, Renaud’s Patisserie, Little Cakes Kitchen, The Pie Hole, or Gelson's that creates desserts in your location, you can be sure the service and selection are second-to-none.
Viktor Benês is the spot for those looking for fine delicacies at a fair price. No other bakery has creations with European influence and Southern California style like these. Viktor Benês is home to the famous Alligator, a scrumptious coffee cake filled with delicious pecans and is available in sizes ranging from large to bite size.
Other favorites include showcase cakes, shortbread cookies for any occasion or holiday, and freshly baked bread such as six-grain and monkey bread. Whether you’re looking for something grand or something simple, Viktor Benês does not disappoint.
