“Quality Has Changed Since the New Owner Has Taken Over...”
Reviewed 18 September 2008

We have been customers' of Aki's Bakery since 2004. In 2004 & 2005, we purchased twelve guava cakes each Christmas to give out as gifts to dear friends. During the year, we gave out guava cakes from Aki's whenever we needed to thank someone for doing something nice for us. We began to notice a change in the quality & freshness of Aki's products in 2006, especially the cakes. I learned today, after calling the bakery to make a complaint about our recent purchase, that the bakery was sold back in 2006. That explains the change!!!

Hubby went to Aki's on Monday (9/15) & purchased a guava cake, an orange chiffon cake, & 6 kolachi. The guava cake was not fresh, not soft & moist but a little stale-tasting. The guava whip cream swirled frosting was not fresh either & looked sort-of matted down. The guava puree on top did not have a fresh guava taste. The orange chiffon cake was very disappointing!!! It crumbled into bits & pieces when we cut into it. We were not able to cut a full slice to serve. We detected an oily taste, which usually happens to a chiffon cake when it gets old. I would estimate that the cake was at least 2 days old. The kolachi, on the other hand, were very good. It seems to be more like the Hungarian-style way of making "kolachky". B/c the kolachi were good & the lady who answered the call was very nice & offered for us to be compensated, I am giving this review 2 stars.

We are very sad that the quality @ Aki's Bakery is just not the same anymore. The new owner does not have the same "touch" that the former owner had. The former owner, his wife, & daughter were very "nit-picky" about the quality of their baked goods. They were perfectionists & we could "taste" it. Sorry to say that we will not be going back.
