Porto's Bakery, their website: http://www.portosbakery.com/

I've never tried their breads and pastries. Their meat stuffed potato balls are delicious.

The Bread Store 1716 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95814 (916) 557-1600

 

It's the only bakery I know, used to make side trips when out shopping just to get their breads. (then ga$ climbed‎) I'm sure others can recomend other bakeries ... ok 1 other I know of is on Freeport just below the tracks north of City College.

I second the Portos suggestion from the first response.  Not only are their wares very tasty, they have an amazing system that gets everyone served in short order (even though the place is always packed).
