“Breakfast at Gayle's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This place was suggested by a friend who also advised us to grab a number first and then decide waht to order. Need to thank the friend as the food was spot on. Only negative was they have no wifi. Maybe that is to keep the tables turning over but really, who doesn't have wifi any more?

“Five Stars and More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Like many who enjoy Capitola I have become "hooked" on Gayles. The food is amazing....wonderful chicken dishes, great bar b que and some [not all] health conscious dishes. If you are in a group of pick eaters everyone will find something to rave about. We have stopped there for a "bag" lunch of truly gourmet items and taken the feast to the beach! Wonderful.
Fairly recent construction makes eating in this location more pleasant. The patio is now glassed in and heated.
The bakery is all by itself a prize winner....the pastries are works of art, and do not l ever recall leaving without a loaf of freshly baked crusty bread.
Not a fancy place, just Wonderful.
Great place!!!!!!!!

“Don't miss this place when in Capitola”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Our neighbor told us about Gayle's Bakery so when we were in Capitola, we stopped by for lunch and were not disappointed. The parking lot fills up fast and you may have to look for on street parking so don't get disappointed and give up...it is worth the time looking for parking. The first thing you do when you walk in if the place is busy and it probably will be, is take a number and then look for something to eat. The pastries are fantastic and while the sandwiches are premade, they are delicious. You won't be disappointed.

“Super yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Gayles is wonderful. It's a little bit of a challenge to order (take a number immediately) but the food is great and they enclosed the patio so now there is a lot more seating. Check out the day old pastries at the far end by the coffee. There are often great deals there

“Divine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Oh, how I wish I lived nearby...
The bread was superb, the desserts moreso. Each choice was wonderful. Sweet, creamy confections to delight the tongue.
The place is very busy, though, so prepare to wait in line to order.
I did not order the meal, however.
