Yelp recently pulled from its data to find the top twenty-two bakeries in the United States and Canada. The review platform identified businesses in the bakeries category, then ranked those spots using a number of factors, including the total volume and ratings of reviews.

The top bakery in the United States, according to Yelp’s data, is Izola in San Diego, California. The bakery also made Yelp’s LGBTQ-owned businesses “Ones to Watch” list in celebration of Pride Month in June.

“I love that Izola is a community-driven bakery that focuses on amplifying the voices of the marginalized! The owners, Jenny and Jeffrey, are kind and generous individuals who have a dream of bringing delicious fresh bread and croissants to the masses,” says one Yelp user who left a review of Izola.
