Superb bakery. Best in Berkeley (which is, as everyone knows, the Gourmet Ghetto!) Their cakes are pricey, but worth every penny. They have a blackberry chiffon cake to die for! And once in a while they make tiny ginger palmiere cookies that are exquisite. Staff have always been really friendly too.
Thank you for your feedback!

The price really depends on what you get there. The pastries and desserts are fantastic and to die for. However, you do pay for it.

$20-30 for a whole cake, which is about 7in. Although it is a little bit expensive, it absolutely worths it! All ingredients are fresh and to the right proportion, and you won't find excessive whip cream to override the taste of the cake. Even a person who doesn't like sweets such as me, I crave Marcia Masse's chiffon and tiramisu! The counter help has been very friendly and helpful. She really took the time to explain me what ingredients they use in each cake (at her best). I am impressed that a small store such as Masse's can have such wide selection of pastries.

Masse's Pastries is the best pastry shop in Berkeley. Ingredients are fresh (chocolate is Swiss). The counter help is attentive and you can order cakes, pastries, etc....Go there!! ------------------------------- 15135 999235 2.0 Meeting House American 415-922-6733 1701 Octavia San Francisco CA 94109 4 Stars $10-15 lupe diaz ldiaz@montgomery.com Thursday, June 25, 1998 If your looking for great food and excellent service, this restaurant is for you. Owner/Chef Joanna starts your meal with a basket of her signature homemade bread and melt-in-your-mouth biscuits. The menu is small but all dishes are superb. Her thick cut pork chops with garlic mashed potatoes is a winner. For dessert try the homemade mint chip ice cream sandwich. Parking is limited, but they do have about 6 parking spots in the lot across the street.

The owner/pastry chef hails from the Ritz in SF. His ingredients are fresh and the pastries wonderful. He doesn't use any plastic decorations on his cakes. You can also sit and have a pastry and a coffee. It's great!
