The cafe is darling. I did not eat in but will certainly plan to go back for that. I did walk through to the bakery. I got several goodies for the family. The opera cream cake was good. I personally didn't think it was quite the home run every one else says it is but my MIL says its her... More

We searched the best bakery in cincinnati, and this place came up. we drove down to the location and parked. The parking lot was already full and the people were lined up at both cafe and bakery. we went to bakery first and waited to be served. Since, many people just rushed in, all customers need to take the number... More

The best cake in town. Chocolate creamy. My sons requested birthday cake every year since he has been able to ask. Great variety, very rich flavors.

I've been looking for a location to host a bridal shower tea and wanted to try the food and see the tea room. So, I made my beer drinking, football loving, mans man of a husband put on a shirt with a collar and accompany me to afternoon tea today (along with our 3-year-old son). We were both surprised by...

A lot of people swear by this place, and I have been in there and tried some of their confections. They have beautiful cakes and decorated cookies, that is a given. As far as being a gold standard in bakeries, Idk if I agree. Their stuff is ok (I have had their opera cream cake and it didn't blow my... More

Stopped by the BonBonerie Bakery a couple Saturdays ago for the first time in a while (months). I sure wish I lived a little closer! Any opportunity to grab a treat there is a good thing. There were four of us and we all had something different - cupcake, cake, croissant and spinach pinwheel. All were delicious! The Opera Creme... More

My husband's birthday is New Year's Eve. We have been celebrating his birthday with a Bumbleberry Torte for 6 years now! We start to drool with anticipation before Christmas! The price is quite reasonable for a scrumptious work of art, the cake is always ready, correctly customized, and dependably delicious.

The much-talked-about cake is certainly beautiful to look at, and the flavors are plenty sweet, but the cake inside seemed dry. Makes you wonder how far ahead they make these confections and then how long they store them.
