“Small authentic bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Run by lovely friendly people. They made a special cake for my mother's 89th birthday. She was born in Romania and the baker was from there, so he knew exactly what I wanted. A little hard to find. Behind IHOP across 98 from Silver Sands.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Read about this bakery in a local magazine and had to try it after realizing it was only a mile from our condo. It is kind of tucked away in a strip mall, but worth finding. Maybe a better storefront sign would help. Intended on getting some breakfast pastries here and that is exactly what we got. The peanut butter filled cronut is delicious! And the almond croissant was the best I've had, really good almond cream inside not the typical almond paste. My husband liked his savory egg, sausage and potato breakfast round as well. Will definitely be visiting again now that I've found this hidden gem. They also sell gourmet chocolates and pretty cakes and have beverages.

“Quality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Karaboo review

In short:

The best bakery in Miramar beach / sandestin / 30a. If you haven't tried it, get there now!!

In full:

Quality.

It seeps from every corner of the quaint bakery tucked behind an IHOP next to a hotel. Run by a couple that only a year ago began out of their home.

Kara and Boo have gone to every length to fill their shop with quality on every level.

The husband (Boo) brings his attention to detail and baking expertise to the front of the house. He brews an Italian roast coffee that stands head and shoulders above any other local offering. His breakfast options range from delicious savory tortas and quiche, to flakey, warm, croissants that are toted as "as good as the French". Lastly, he imports chocolates that looks like glass sculptures and pair perfectly with a fresh latte or Americano.

As for the cakes?

The wife (Kara) handles that using her eye for detail and experience in pastry to develop amazing combinations of favors. Each different cake, cupcake, torte, and pastry offering a different experience for your pallet. When you stop in, grab a black velvet salted caramel cupcake, seriously.

In closing, whatever your bakery needs, karaboo is the place to go. Weddings, birthdays, random Wednesdays whatever.

You're in good hands with Boo, Kara, or any of the amazing group at this local gem.

“Tucked-Away Treats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

You have to search a bit to find KaraBoo, located in the farthest corner of a small storefront, off the Emerald Coast Parkway, but it's well worth the effort. The quiches, generously filled with cheese, sausage, or spinach are deliciously savory and make the perfect breakfast bite. Filled croissants, muffins and delicious steamed coffees are excellent too. Fresh salads and sandwiches change seasonally.

KaraBoo pastries are works of art. From beautifully decorated cakes with unbelievably complex designs to cupcakes, pies, tarts and cheesecakes - the choices are varied and unique. KaraBoo also has a selection of luscious Norman Love chocolates. Feels as if everyday is a special occasion at KaraBoo.
