Best baked goods you'll eat!

This is THE go-to place for us when we need a birthday cake or pie. Cookies are simply to die for. My only warning will be that you'll need to dedicate more time on the treadmill and you will not be able to eat only half of what you choose. I've had most of their cookies, but remain addicted... read more

Amazing cakes and treats in Down Town Los Gatos. The Banana Cake is Amazing. Although it is not cheap the quality and moist taste and flavors will keep you coming back.

When you are celebrating a special occasion or just need a little pick-me-up treat, this is the place to come! I shop here for colleague birthday celebrations because they have something for everyone, even gluten-free coworkers.

This is my favorite place to go when you need a dessert for a special occasion. They are pricey, but so worth it. My personal favorite is the lemon blueberry cream pie or the snicker doodle cookies, but haven't ever had anything bad. They will do special orders and help you with how big a cake you will need.

This bakery knows how to cater to people with a sweet tooth. Lots of wonderful things here. The line of customers is always bustling with people eager to get their fix. I think their carrot cake is among the best things they make. I wish they had more "healthy" options but maybe that's a dumb request for a dessert bakery.

This bakery is one of the best I've ever been to. The employees are friendly, the atmosphere is adorable, and the food is absolutely delicious! It's not the cheapest place, but the food is completely worth the prices. The peanut butter pie is to die for, and so are their cupcakes!

Simply the best buttermilk frosting chocolate cake I have ever tasted (and I have tasted a lot of them in my 70+ years of life. Lots of other goodies too that I am sure are above average too. But definitely try the chocolate cake!
