“Gayles is an Capitola tradition”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I live three blocks from Gayles and it's difficult to not go there everyday. The food is fresh and delicious, the daily specials are great, the pastries are out of this world - I even go there for a fresh mini baguette and coffee in the morning. The problem is, besides being addictive her stuff is also a little high on both calories and cost. Still, whenever we plan a picnic we stop by Gayles first the freshest stuff in town. Yum also to her Holiday delights - Passover, Easter, Christmas - all the faves!

I know the way they do customer service is funky, but that's part of the charm - just go get a ticket by the door and wait for them to call your number!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

Found this place by "accident" while in the Capitola/Santa Cruz area. Ample seating, casual & quaint. Everything we tried was yummy! Just so sad I live 3 hours away....I can't stop the craving for their chocolate eclares! Please move to my town!

“A Santa Cruz tradition”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

What I like about Gayle's Bakery and Rosticceria is that it's local! Very Very Santa Cruzian! And they support soooo many non-profit organization in town. It's a pleasure to support them because of all the community service they do in the area. And the food's great too! :)
