Delicious cookies of all varieties and scrumptious pumpkin bread with either cream cheese frosting or orange glaze (amazingly delicious). Highly recommend!

This is real professional cake and frosting made with all fresh ingredients. It certainly not a light, cheap cake. . . it was dense and rich. The store... More

I've been to many bakeries. I have my favorites. I have the ones I avoid. Driving home one day I stopped by this bakery with the intention of taking a few things home to my family.

Chocolate buttermilk cake is to die for! Everything is the best! Great bakery if you just want a coffee and cookie, or holiday cakes and pies. Old fashioned no nonsense bakery!

if you have a sweet tooth, then you need to go to icing on the cake. Cookies, Cakes, Pies, Cupcakes; you want it for desert, they have it. Plus all the cards and serving pieces in a very open setting. Pre Order or just come in and buy what you need. It is always fresh and delicious.

Tasteless cake, disappointing decor. Second experience same. This bakery is over-rated & over-priced. Nob Hill cakes much better.
