: Meet Joe Luna owner of Boy’s Bakery (@joeboybakes
). Joe was born and raised in Sacramento and had a skittish impatience to leave Sacramento after high school to explore the world. After nearly ten years living away from home in Napa Valley, San Francisco, and Sweden Joe returned home to start Boy’s Bakery and share Swedish “fika buns” with Sacramento!
Baking has been Joe’s way to connect with people ever since his first job as an intern baker at Bella Bru at sixteen years old. When Joe lived in Stockholm he created a program for a non-profit and led baking classes in Swedish for immigrant women and youth. In was in Stockholm that Joe developed a love for fika buns.
Fika buns are a Swedish staple and come in a variety of forms and flavors. Joe has introduced Sacramento to traditional Swedish flavors like cardamom, pistachio and saffron. He has also incorporated parts of his Filipino-Mexican heritage into the fika buns to create ube, concha-style, and American cereal flavors.
At the heart of Joe’s baking is a love for community and education. Joe studied education at UC Berkeley and has always had a passion for sharing knowledge with others. He has translated this passion for education and partnered with @table_community_foundation
to create a youth baking program which will begin this summer @barriosacramento.

Everyone has a talent, but not everyone becomes great at something. The difference is outworking the rest, training harder, learning more, putting yourself through more pain and failure, putting in more effort, continuing to going when everything seems to be conspiring to stop you and hold you back, building the strength to fight back, being determined to smash through every obstacle and roadblock, and getting better and better each day! -
So many times in my life, I’ve been told that I was doing too much, moving too fast, working out too hard, lifting too heavy, need to be more careful, need to slow down, focus on this/that, and the list goes on. But at the end of the day, i’ve realized that the average/mediocre tell me that i’m doing too much, but the people who are doing more/better than me in specific areas tell me that I need to do more and show endless support and give me the words of wisdom necessary for me to stay driven. -
5 of my life lessons/realizations:
1.) Success follows success.
2.) Become better than you were yesterday.
3.) Listen to the people who have reached higher success in your field.
4.) Always work on yourself and stay learning!
5.) Keep your vision and stay in your lane!!!
In 1859, Ansel Easton commissioned artist David Woods to paint this portrait of Blackhawk, a famous Irish racehorse that Easton imported to California. The Easton ranch, which was part of the Buri Buri land grant, became known as the Blackhawk Ranch in honor of the horse, which was the first thoroughbred brought to California the purpose of breeding and racing. The ranch later moved to the foot of Mount Diablo in Contra Costa County and is today the community of Blackhawk.
Woods was born in Ohio and came to California with the Gold Rush. He lived primarily in San Francisco, but spent short periods in Sacramento and Chico. In the 1890s, he ran the Pacific Art Gallery in San Francisco and worked as a landscape painter and portrait photographer. He died in Sacramento, in 1911.
