Pizzaiolo, Oakland

Pizzaiolo has been on my list of places to try. I really want to try their pizza, as it keeps getting named as one of the best pizzas in the Bay Area. Instead, I went there for breakfast. The breakfast there is an interesting idea.  They have a bunch of different pastries - croissants, doughnuts, turnovers - and maybe a frittata, as well as thick, toasted slices of Acme Bread with jam. Once the  (limited) food runs out - that's it. So if you are patiently waiting in line for the meyer lemon and custard turnover, and see that there are only 2 left, and there are 3 people in line ahead of you, you probably will have to choose something else.  We chose the pumpkin spice doughnut, which was nice and not too sweet and not too pumpkin-y - both things I appreciate. 

This is the kind of place you go to if you want something small to eat, maybe a coffee, and you don't want to deal with how hectic most of the other breakfast places in the area are. And if you're still hungry after (because you didn't get to eat that lemon turnover) you can always go a couple of store fronts down and pick something up from Bakesale Betty.
