Love all the food here! We walk here once a week to try something for dessert and have never had something we didn't like!

I am a regular visitor (3 to 4 times a week). What is not to like? The breads, the morning foods, the pastries and cakes are all wonderful. Glad I live close by.

Try the double chocolate mousse cake - melts in your mouth and the best chocolate anything I've ever eaten. They sell out of croissants on weekend mornings, often. Their cakes cannot be beaten. Definitely go there. Best almond croissants - better than in Paris. So good...everything is so good...

Beautiful, delicious, you'll be spoilt for choice withe wide array of breads and pastries and cakes. Try the basic first: croissant is highly recommended. I'll have to try each and every single one to give an informed review ... but from what I've seen and tasted, this is definitely worth a visit.

This place has been serving up consistently great sweet French pastries and cakes for many years and I love to stop by, when I'm ready to spend for something special.

Pastries by Randolph is my go-to place for birthday and anniversary cakes. They will write a message on any cake while you wait. I have never been disappointed in their selection or deliciousness. Around the holidays they have pre-packaged cookie platters to bring to the office or give as thank you gifts. They specialize in sweet, not savory. If you... More

We love the pastries and cakes at Randolphs. I do find that they are very expensive but you get what you pay for! We drive a long way but are always happy with the delectable and beautiful cakes and pastries when we are eating our way through them!!!

There's a reason why this place has such a great reputation. The service is superb - you're their sole focus as they patiently help you choose from among a wide range of delicious options. But the best thing is the taste of their goods - excellent chocolate and wonderful fruit based options too. Just so perfectly done!

We stopped at Pastries by Randolph on a whim and did not regret it. The choice they offer is large and their pastries and pies are extremely tempting and tasty too. We bought some cupcakes and brownies and liked both. The people behind the counter were pleasant and helpful. Would stop by if I am in the area.
