During our sabbatical year in Palo Alto, people would ask us where were from. When they heard Claremont, more often than not, they would say, “Oh, Some Crust Bakery is there.”
For sure. This bakery/coffee shop/local hang-out has been treating Claremonters to baked goods since 1916, not terribly long after Pomona College opened its doors. I think my favorite part of a Some Crust experience is opening up the old screen door with this fading metal sign.
