My women friends and I enjoying meeting for afternoon tea at the Sweet Thyme Bakery. It is small but the baked goods are delicious and not too sweet. Since it is run by a Chinese family, who does all the baking, you can even get bubble tea. It has a relaxing quiet atmosphere and lets us linger to talk as... More

We needed to find a place for lunch before a tour, and this was an excellent choice. Though the pastries looked delicious, we each had a different sandwich on bread baked there, and took a slice of green tea cheesecake with us to share later.

This bakery is small and unassuming, but their desserts are very good. Other cheesecakes and pastries are very flavorful, but the title tells my favorite.

The cream was super light, flavorful and perfectly sweet and the cake was very spongy & moist. My hunt for the best bakery... More

We needed a little something to hold us over until dinner, so we popped into Sweet Thyme. What a pleasant surprise. My husband had the blueberry cheesecake, and I had the black forest layer cake; we were both thrilled with our choices, and surprised at how reasonably priced they were. The black forest cake was delicious, and not sicky sweet...I... More

I've become a "regular" for pastry take-out and have enjoyed a fresh, reasonably priced sandwich lunch with tea.
