Been going here for years for only one thing, the burnt almond cake. There are different flavors and you can't go wrong with any one. I also buy the special "day old" burnt almond cake for $8-$9 and taste even better the next day kind of thing.

Best burnt almond cake ever! Have to go back to try the pumpkin burnt almond. Dicks's is the sister Bakery to Peter's Bakery in east San Jose. I grew up on Peter's Bakery. Old fashion goodness

They make good donuts. A great place to stop on the way to work and pick up a dozen for a meeting. No place to sit and eat, just grab and go.

They have without a doubt the BEST burnt almond cake in the world. My Grandmother use to take me here when I was still a bambino. We would get one cake along with a few of the chocolate eclairs, every time!!

Do not miss stopping by this iconic bakery and getting a piece of (or whole) Burnt Almond Cake - very cheap too! Unbelievable flavor in this light and fluffy tradition. Nothing like it anywhere else - tried to duplicate making it myself as I live out of state - can't do it. I never miss stopping here when I'm in... More
