Customer is king

The staff will go out of their way to help you get what you need. Cakes, cookies and pastries are all excellent and are made fresh with the best ingredients. Also have a nice selection of light meal options (bistro sandwiches, salads, etc.) and very good coffee.

I could eat one of everything on this menu. Since they've expanded, it's more than a bakery. Breakfast and lunch is memorable and the bakery is top notch. Love everything here. Anytime I'm in town, I always eat here!

I am a bakery expert, from years of visiting them all over the midwest picking up treats for customers and meetings. Daube's has about everything, including breakfast sandwiches. The cinnamon roll was worthy of the wait in line during our Saturday morning visit. Next time through, will visit again to give something else a try.

Great, unique selections, plus if you spent any time in Europe (especially Germany), you'll recognize some of their staples. The cakes are wonderful!! Always busy, which tells you that their quality is good as well.

Every time that I hear about Daube's, my mouth waters for those wonderful pastries! I believe that if I lived in Rochester, I would balloon up over hundreds of pounds because I would be trying everything that they offer. You can't go wrong with this Rochester classic.

This place was a treat! The place is very busy and I can see why. We loved our flavorful and delicious chicken pots pies -- the best we've ever had. Also enjoyed good coffee, rugelach, a donut, cinnamon bread, potica, and a croissant. I would have bought more but I wanted to show at least a little bit of restraint.... More

Wait staff were nice and friendly but the one cookie I ordered for a snack was dry and not tasty at all. Maybe one of the other desserts would have been better.

Great bread, great cakes and pastries. Sandwiches for lunch - I like the hummus poorboy. Daube's has been baking up treats in Rochester for decades - even our wedding cake! A true classic!

While Daube's is well known for their cakes and other pastries I have only been in for the donuts ... which are delicious. Daube's is a nice quite place to go enjoy the paper with a cinnamon twist.

Daube's baked goods and restaurant theme meet what one would expect at a bakery-- delicious and cute. The staff; however, have been irritated and curt. I would think people who work in bakeries couldn't be happier, so was disappointed that my business there seemed to bother the staff.
