We bought a cake slice, a cookie, & a twist--all dry & tasteless. The tart had nice fruit but only whipped cream, no custard. Brownie & Danish were ok. Our group was disappointed.

I love pastries and baked goods always have always been my weakness. The selection in their glass display was so overwhelming. We did the best we could by selecting 6 desserts and 2 meat and cheese croissants. Everything had a distinct flavor and we really enjoyed each item. Be sure to enjoy them with a tall glass of cold milk.

Ate here for lunch. My husband had their quiche and beet salad and enjoyed it. I ordered a ham sandwich on sourdough bread and a butter cookie that was half dipped in chocolate. The bread was so dry it was nearly a crouton. Did you notice that I said "butter" cookie? It just crumbled it was so dry. I can't... More

It could be a dream come true if you like pastries. Remeniscent of a Solvang pastry shop, there are dozens and dozens of different varieties of beautiful-looking treats. We tried several kinds - none were outstanding, just "good" but there must be something there that is out of this world. Open until 10 P.M. for an evening treat.

What you expect from a Scandinavian bakery. Large variety of pastries and they also have good deli sandwiches

In addition, they have sandwiches, salads and entrees. I had the spinach lasagne. It was a large portion, flavorful and not expensive.

After a morning walk around Laguna we wanted to duck into a little local place for coffee and maybe a bite to eat. Well, my husband loves sweets and the display case is a magnet for anyone that loves sugar. But they also offer a hot breakfast with the option of three or four choices for about 5 bucks, a... More

What a great little bakery. The treats are nothing short of amazing here. I've sampled several different flavors, haven't met one that I didn't think was delicious. I think my favorite would be the Tiramisu- it's just that great. This is my favorite snack place when I'm in the area.

When I lived in the area I used to be a regular, and while visiting years later of course I took a trip down the memory lane to fill up on some great pastries :) and I wasn't disappointed. A great selection of cakes, pastries and muffins as always. I haven´t tried the cooked food, as I always went there... More
