Some baked goods are good; some could be better

I have ordered a number of baked goods from Distelfink Bakery. I find that the cakes are just average and have had cakes from several grocery stores and Costco that are much better. The cut out cookies are very good and so are the cinnamon buns; however, the butter cake is awful and we threw most... read more

I had to visit the laundry mat next door & thought I would treat myself to a bakery treat. I had heard good things about this bakery & decided to check them out. I purchased 2 danish - crumb & cheese - They were the BEST I've ever had! I will, for sure, be going back to try some more... More

Stopped here a few weeks ago. This was the first time in awhile. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. I picked up a cherry topped cheese cake and a dozen cannoli's. I did this since I was heading to a party and wanted to bring some treats. They were a hit! I recommend Distelfink's ...they have been around for... More

Ordered a birthday cake for a special dinner and the flavor was just ok. However, more importantly, the cake was not cooked through. Twenty guests and no dessert. Ugh! Returned cake. Got refund. No apologies. Will never go again. Ever.

The people who work here are very busy and yet are willing to make something custom with very little notice. All of their pastries and cakes are nice and tasty. Highly recommend them!!

I stopped in for a large cake to serve 10-12 people, half vanilla, half chocolate. The cake was brutal, very dry, as if it had sat in the case since the day before, so much so that my guests commented on the dryness. This is the second time in 6 months that I purchased a cake over $20, and it... More

Zero complaints! Love this place and my family loves when I stock up on delicious treats and bring them home. Excellent selection and always pleasant service. On a side note - did someone really complain about a cake being too sweet?! They showed up at the last minute and then still had it delivered?! What is wrong with people?! Self-centered... More

I would not recommend this bakery for cakes. First of I placed a cake order a week in advance when I went to pick up my cake the day of the party at 4:55pm (they close at 5). They were closed early. Now if they took my number why didn't anyone bother to call and tell me they are closing... More

Wonderful variety of baked goods. Imaginative cake decorating. We love the "photo" cakes for kids' birthdays. Their Jewish Apple Cake is my favorite to take when we are invited out. MomMom...maybe the Blueberry....or the butter cake
