UPDATE DURING COVID-19
We’re all dealing with an unprecedented time with Covid-19. Republic of Cake is open with limited hours and a limited menu. We are open Wednesday through Saturday from 11am-2pm. We are encouraging our customers to pre-order, as we are only baking a small amount each day. Orders close at 2pm for the next day. Same-day orders are accepted via phone, however availability of all items is not guaranteed. Orders can be placed through the website for future days (no same day orders accepted), by calling the shop at 925-254-3900, or by emailing
We are doing our part to slow the spread! We have a table set up out front of the bakery with a display of our cupcakes, so only our employees are in the shop. We are limiting the number of employees working together and masks are worn at all times, even when the shop is closed. Masks are required to order from the shop. As always, we follow the strictest Contra Costa Heath Department guidelines of handwashing, food preparation and storage. Curbside pick up is available with pre-payment. Delivery is available through UberEats, Postmates, and DoorDash. If you are unable to wear a mask when ordering, please call ahead for curbside pick up. We thank you for your cooperation.
REPUBLIC OF CAKE WELCOMES YOU
Freshly Baked Goodness You Can’t Resist
Who We Are and What We Do
Republic of Cake has been a top rated bakery in Orinda since 2010.
Passionate about baking since she was just nine years old, Lindsay Pirkle, manager and co-owner of Republic of Cake, as of 2017, is thrilled to fulfill her lifelong dream to own a bakery. From an early age, Lindsay took to the kitchen like a bee to honey; “I love working in a kitchen with the aroma of fresh treats, the gleam of sparkling clean surfaces, and the sound of a whirring mixer. It’s my favorite place to be!”
Born in San Francisco and raised in the East Bay, Lindsay has a bachelor’s degree in Employee Relations from San Francisco State University, and has worked with local and national chefs throughout her many years at Ingredients Cooking School in Danville.
Her good friends and mentors, Chih-Chung Fang and Peter McNiff, founders of Republic of Cake, have trained Lindsay in the operation of their beloved bakery. She is committed to continuing the excellence they have delivered for the past seven years.
At Republic of Cake, we use real ingredients, all of the time. Stop by to try some of our homemade treats!

"Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast"
WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT
We generally rotate our flavors based on seasons- so you won't find a strawberry cupcake in December!
We love to support other local businesses when possible, so the majority of our ingredients are sourced from local small businesses.
Our bakery is not a nut-free environment. We bake cookies with peanuts, macadamia nuts, walnuts, and almonds. Although we make every effort to keep these items separate, we cannot guarantee that traces of nuts be found on our other items.
Our bakery is not a wheat-free environment. Our wheat free cupcakes are made separately than our regular cupcakes, however we cannot guarantee zero cross contact.
