I've been to many bakeries. I have my favorites. I have the ones I avoid. Driving home one day I stopped by this bakery with the intention of taking a few things home to my family. In the two hour drive home, the supply got lower and lower as I couldn't stop eating the deliciousness of this place. It was... More

If you have time they will do custom cakes....Ours is banana cake, chocolate frosting, and peanut... More

Chocolate buttermilk cake is to die for! Everything is the best! Great bakery if you just want a coffee and cookie, or holiday cakes and pies. Old fashioned no nonsense bakery!

if you have a sweet tooth, then you need to go to icing on the cake. Cookies, Cakes, Pies, Cupcakes; you want it for desert, they have it. Plus all the cards and serving pieces in a very open setting. Pre Order or just come in and buy what you need. It is always fresh and delicious.

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.
