At my niece's recommendation, we stopped here to pick up sandwiches for a picnic as she played tour guide to her favorite beaches on the coast. Great options, everyone found delicious sandwiches to suit their tastes.

There are better Good Things To Eat in Santa Cruz. Buttery is the best. Emily's is just ok. The pastries are uninspiring. The parking lot is extremely difficult to get out of.

This is a so so bakery...nothing outstanding. Fresh sandwiches were not available and the pastries were average. The shop appears to need a good cleaning.

My wife and I stopped on a lark traveling through. The coffee was hot, tasty and reasonably priced. The baked goods, made on the premises, are rustic and delicious, especially the pies. Oh my.

We've been to Emily's about five times, each time we park up, grab good coffee, spend too long deciding what to eat, whilst enjoying the gorgeous smells from the kitchen, and then dash back out to the car and onwards. On Friday, we had more...More

Stopped for coffee and a pastry, threw in a breakfast burrito for good measure! Burrito was good, the pastry was fantastic. Coffee was also delicious. Highly recommend for a bit and a cup of joe on your way in or out of town.

What a great little bakery. The staff are so much fun and very friendly. The breads and the pastries are so well made. We tried the cherry crostata and it was out of this world. Moist and delicate crust filled with not too sweet cherries....More
