Tasteless cake, disappointing decor. Second experience same. This bakery is over-rated & over-priced. Nob Hill cakes much better.

I am NOT going to tell you the name of my favorite pie or it will be gone before I get mine. The cakes are delicious, the cookies divine. Yum. This is a bakery. Eggs and butter and all the good stuff.

I was told that this was a great bakery and so when I was heading to my sister's house for a gathering, I decided to grab some desserts. There were so many great treats, I had a hard time deciding and walked out with a hodge podge of cookies, cupcakes, and pie slices... Everything was gobbled up by kids and... More

Great old fashioned bakery with a modern twist. I've seen this business grow from a very small catering business to a full-on store front. They deserve the success they've achieved.

Cookies, cupcakes, cakes, pies, loafs, they make it all. It is my go to spot for a treat or a dessert to bring along. They also have the cutest little items and lots of birthday related trinkets. Everyone love a cookie.

Everyone loves Icing on the Cake but I don't get it. It's just a typical bakery. If you want something special, go to Fleur de Cocoa on Santa Cruz

If you need a cake this is the only place to get one-order in advance, they run out quick. The carrot cake is the best-you almost think you are eating a dozen carrots.

Our go-to place for cakes and cookies. My favorite is their carrot cake. Favorite cookie is a crimble bee! Also love their bread pudding and cupcakes - best vegan cupcakes I have ever had!
