Our Story

Poppy Cake Baking Company is a neighborhood, full-service artisan bakery/cafe located in Sierra Madre, CA. Open daily, Poppy Cake serves fresh, hand-crafted breads and pastries, quick lunches, and take home dinners.

In July of 2021 Poppy Cake Arcadia opened, focusing on coffee & espresso, fresh baked pastries and quick sandwiches and salads.

Our selections are made in-house, from scratch. Our bread and pastries are baked fresh every morning and all of our bread is naturally leavened using sourdough starter. We don’t use any canola oil, shortening, or high fructose corn syrup, and we fry our chicken in rice bran oil (yes, fried chicken!).
