If you love the smell of fresh bread and pastries baking, visit this historic venue. Kanemitsu Bakery and Restaurant, founded in 1922 by Fred and Shigeo Kanemitsu, was originally based in a shack in Manila Camp. After moving to the downtown location in 1931, the operation expanded to include a cafe. A huge old-fashioned gumball machine adorns the bakery area. The spacious but plain dining room has peeling linoleum floors, Formica tables and no windows. The food is inexpensive and satsifying. A full American-style breakfast is available. Lunch fare includes burgers, sandwiches, salads and local plate lunches. Cash only.
