“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I went to this bakery the other night I just wanted some empanada's and something to munch on.
The empanada's were just okay.
The service was good though that I will say.
But on issue was I guess they didn't have enough people because I saw a few people cleaning their own tables. Which isn't wrong...but that should be done by the employees.
I didn't have any of the desserts so I can't comment on them...But they did look very good :)
The prices are alittle too high though. Its about $3 for one empanada...that for me is alittle ridiculous. Sorry but it is lol!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Wow! These bakery has everything you can imagine and you can enjoy a good breakfast, lunch or a light dinner. I always stopped after mass (they are right accross Holy Cross Catholic Church) for a cortadito and bunuelos. Last time I went was packed! There was a line to go in. Affordable. Staff is also very nice.

“Enormous selections, great customer service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

I was sent to this place from Martins BBQ in search of soup. They did not have any, but I hit gold. WOW. The Colombians sure do know how to bake. Walking in to this busy little cafe one would imagine no one would acknowledge your mundane presence. Not at all, the busy attendants made eye contact and nodded. Great points for customer service.

There are rows and rows of delicious sugar goodness all encased in the cleanest most glistening showcase. Whole cakes wrapped in layers of sugar with cute little roses and colorful add-on beckons. Whole sheets of layered yummilicousness wave you over. The little mini individual pieces of heaven winks and whispers, take me home. Oh la la, what to choose. Sugar heaven! Luckily, the attendant was nice enough to guide, answer questions, and point out favorites. This is how language and cultural barriers are bridged. It takes someone with passion and eagerness to showcase their unique product to make an ethnic business successful. All pieces that I sampled were spot on in texture and taste. This is definitely one top notch operation.

Great assortment of baked products and great customer service.
