Gayle’s Bakery & Rosticceria

504 Bay Avenue


In 1978, Gayle & Joe Ortiz decided to open a small bakery nestled above the quaint little village of Capitola, California.  It began with 800 square feet and they served 10 items. Five years later, the Rosticceria, an Italian deli with a beautiful rotisserie was added. Today, Gayle’s is a thriving 10,000 square foot food emporium with two successful cookbooks and 150 employees.

Everyday, we transform the best natural ingredients like real butter, fresh eggs and organic flour into more than 500 different pastries, cakes, cookies, breads, sandwiches and entreés. Even the mayonnaise is made from scratch! Freshness in the food business can be a relative term. To us it means daily or hourly.

Like village bakeries everywhere, Gayle’s is a meeting spot for locals, many of whom stop in several times a day. It is a destination for people from all over the world who love food. And now, Gayle’s is also a place for First Friday art lovers!
