We try to make it to Gayle's every time we go to Capitola. The deli choices are almost unlimited. The Bakery goods are are always wonderful. Kind of pricy, but it is worth it.

This place is the best for home cooked food if you don't have time to cook... or just go get desert. Their products are tasty and a little pricey.

Whenever we go to Capitoa or Santa Cruz this place is a must to dine at, it's one of the reasons we come this way!

Great food and bakery items. We met friends and sat in front of the fireplace which was nice. We had breakfast and coffee, all which were good. And, of course had to buy cookies and cinnamon rolls to go. Will always come back.

Parking is awful! Great deli and baked goods. Take a number when you walk in! Everything is double or more in price than other local places. Be prepared for a wait. You will have to decide if it's worth it. Be patient or be gone. Hope this helped. Please mark it so if it did. Thanks.

From deli and cooked foods, to easy to go packed meals, to all the wonderful pastries and desserts, there is something for everyone. We tried the Chocolate coma cookie, cowboy cookie, almond croissant and Florentines! (Get the last 2!! Delicious!) You take a... More

This bakery really is the best one I have been too! I stop by here whenever we are at the coast. The food is delicious (deli) and homemade. The pastries, breads, cakes, etc are just so delicious, don't come here without your sweet tooth.

Gayle's is well known in Capitola. Their service is outstanding, their pastries are amazing. They also have weekly dinners and of course fresh breads and cakes. Great spot, great food, great atmosphere.
