The bakery is new, but many of the faces at Taste of Denmark likely will be familiar to customers. That is because the business was founded by a collective of former Neldam’s Danish Bakery employees who banded together to keep the baking tradition alive at 3401 Telegraph Ave.
Opening day is Sept. 9. A grand opening will follow, said Cathy Caulkett, who began working for Neldam’s at the age of 16 when the original founders ran the bakery. She also watched the Oakland icon close July 15, after 81 years on the same block.
