Absolutely loved the American Tea Cake, it is a must try at this stop. Also loved the cinnamon donut, served fresh and warm. The Caramel nut cinnamon roll left me unimpressed, gooey and dense.

This bakery is just adorable and they always have samples! They have a wonderful selection of baked goods at unbeatable prices!! I can get a lemon bar that easily has 4 servings for less than $2. I often times go and buy 4-5 desserts and then cut them up in smaller servings when I have parties. They have a little... More

Incredible!!!!! The American Tea Cakes are phenomenal....I've never had anything like it---any pastry nearly as good. It's probably good that we don't live nearby or I'd be at this charming bakery every day and I would weigh 400#. :).

I had read the reviews on TA and this was on my short list of places to try; so, when I happened to be driving by (after breakfast at Colossal Cafe) we made a quick stop. The peanut butter cookies are amazing, and are definitely one of the best we've ever had! We also had the cheesecake (ganache topping was... More

WOW is all I can say about this great little bakery that I was introduced to recently. The aroma sucks you in and makes you drool as you look at the vast display of yumminess. Cookies the size of my head were in the first glass case, but thankfully, I was able to make it to the second glass case... More

Amazing funky little bakery. Old school great pastries, doughnuts, cakes, etc. Nothing stuffy or prentious about this spot. Just great food & friendly service at great prices. There is frequently a line in the AM for a reason.

The cinnamon doughnuts are by far the best!! Try to get there first thing when they open so they are piping fresh out of the oven. I recommend the bread also its very good for sandwiches yummy.
