This past February I gave Rick's the opportunity to make a VERY special birthday cake for my husband. The year we had just been through left us unsure if he would even see this birthday. It was his 64th and it was coming close to our 28th anniversary. Being Beatle's fans forever I had an idea I knew he would... More

Staff was very hospitable and the food was very good. We ordered sandwiches for lunch. A good hearty meal with a bonus sweet treat at the end. I hope we go back for lunch again today. The caking decorating is intricate and cool to see.

I'm so glad we found Rick's bakery. We ended up eating breakfast there 2 days. In addition to delicious donuts and pastries, they also serve a few savory items including biscuits and gravy. It was very affordable and the service was great.

They have a great variety of pastries. I don't think you would be disappointed with anything. They do speciality cakes that are decorated unbelievably well. Incredible might be a better word. They also have a special room for children's birthday parties. Each child gets his or hers own cake to decorate. They then can take the cake home. They seem... More

Ricks has been around since the late 1970's they have gone from just the small place in the corner to pretty much taking over half of the center up. Even with all the expansion, the atmosphere and food has stayed wonderfully same, absolutely perfect, from a nice hot fresh donut and coffee in the morning to a great sandwich in... More

I ordered a chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese icing - did not want whipped icing. I envisioned a cake with dark in color chocolate icing that you see everywhere - but instead, it is was a very pale brown and really tasted like whipped icing. It wasn't cheap - $24 for a small round 2 layer chocolate cake. The... More

First time to have lunch, great sandwich and it even comes with a slice of cake! Very good selection on the menu, and the counters are full of tempting sweets.

One of the things I love about Rick's is they have TONS of flavored syrups. We got a almond & English toffee latte with whipped cream. Heaven in a cup. One of the things I didn't like was that we couldn't do an add-on pastry thing at the coffee counter.

I am absolutely in love with their tye dye cookies. Their baked goods are delicious. They use pepper in some of their frosting which I'm not crazy about, but every sweet I've had from their tastes great. Their sandwiches aren't bad, but I feel like they could use a little more flavor. You get a free piece of cake when... More

Just stopped in for a few sweet treats. Everyone picked something different and they were all delicious. Kids enjoyed the big viewing window where you can watch cakes being decorated. Many beautiful cakes on display. We would stop in again.
