The sourdough pizza place from chef Nick Yapor-Cox, ~NICK’S PIZZA~, is adding breakfast pastry and coffee service to their repertoire. Starting Thursday June 20th, look out for scones both sweet and savory, croissants, and loaves of bread, all from Yapor-Cox and his high school friend Aron Ford. The pair’s combined experience includes Acme and Arizmendi, and all the baked goods will utilize the same sourdough starter used in Nick’s pizza crust. They’ll be pouring coffee from Emeryville’s McLaughlin and serving yogurt parfaits made with housemade yogurt. Breakfast service will be available Tue-Sun at 8am. 6211 Shattuck Ave. at 62nd St., Oakland, 510-658-3903.
