Went to Feel Good Bakery because I had a 50% off coupon from EcoMetro Guide. It's in the Alameda Marketplace on Park St. They have a small parking lot in back, but I went up the street & turned so walked a bit - FREE street parking on Sundays. My inquiry here:
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/741701

Everything looked pretty good. I got a bunch of stuff:

Cheese bread loaf $5 - Inside there's bit of cheddar cheese w/ jalapeno peppers- I liked it.

Wholey-Moley loaf $4.75 - you can get it with or without sunflower seeds. I got with. It's fine.

Parisian macarons $2 ea - I asked for 1 of each & got 6. One I tried was ok. I like Paulette's in SF better.

Chocolate Croissant $3 - will try tomorrow

Sticky bun $3 - small with lots of nuts on top. I liked it.

When I tried to use my 50% coupon, the girl said the maximum was $5. Wish they said so on the coupon! I ended up paying $20.75 instead of $25.75 though.

Credit cards taken.
