Originally educated as a mechanical engineer, Tal spent years building her career in her home country of Israel.
At age 30, Tal moved from Israel to the U.S. and soon after, she chose to leave the engineering industry to raise her son and two daughters. Soon after, Tal’s passion and creativity demanded an outlet. In 2012, she opened Tal’s Patisserie to bring the culinary comforts and hospitality of her native Haifa, Israel to Danville, California.
Tal opened her bakery with the inspiration and excitement that was ignited during her world travels at age 23. She built her catering and cafe menus from the best food that the Mediterranean, France, and of course, Israel, has to offer.
Some of Tal’s favorite bakes include Israeli and Jewish delicacies such as Hamantaschen, Rugelach, Bourekas, and Babkas.
Tal’s is a place where the community comes together to talk, laugh, learn and enjoy incredible breakfast, lunch, pastries and sweets.

Alexandre Family Farm is a 5th generation pasture-based dairy farm located Crescent City, CA near the Oregon border, nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Redwoods. The cool coastal climate produces diverse grasses for their dairy cows to enjoy! Alexandre dairy cows are 100% verified A2/A2. Regular milk contains both A1 and A2 beta-casein, but A2 milk contains only A2 beta-casein. Some studies suggest that A1 beta-casein may be harmful and that A2 beta-casein is a safer choice.
Alexandre uses a “low and slow” heating method when preparing their milks to harness all of the wholesome goodness in pasture-raised cow’s milk. Their cool, coastal climate provides green grass 365 days a year – a constant source of nourishment for their unique blend of crossbreed cows and milk. Beneath the naturally creamy top, their Whole Milk contains 6% butterfat, CLA, and Omega 3 fatty acids for a healthier, creamier taste.
