“Best bakery ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I am not given to superlatives, but Patticakes is the best place ever for breakfast pastries, and their coffee is five star, too. You can get a mouthwateringly good Danish and coffee for $4.50! Which is about what you pay for the cardboard rolls and burnt coffee Starbucks sells. The croissant pastry is flavorful, but not sweet, and the fruit or chocolate fillings are equally well-balanced.

I live two hours away. When we got within 15 miles, I started lobbying for the detour. My boy friend didn't take much convincing; he loves it, too. When we finished our breakfast, I went right back to the counter for cookies to eat on the way home, and a muffin for breakfast tomorrow. Yum!

Give Mike and Phyllis a visit; you won't regret it -- unless you live close, in which case your diet may suffer!

“out of this world coffee, unparalleled desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

OK---I've sen mixed reviews, but really: this is a true gem hidden near the hiis in Altadena. Mike the owner is always friendly, the coffee is out of this world, and the dessert items, concocted in-house, are disturbingly scrumptuous. Try the $4.50 coffee and pastry deal on saturdays and your weekend will be suh-weet.

“Excellent cakes and pastries and coffee...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2010 via mobile

Excellent cakes and pastries and coffee. They even make desserts for a number of top local restaurants. Pricy but excellent.
