I’ve had numerous experiences here over the years. Birthday cakes, birthday cupcakes and wonderful pastries too numerous to mention. Its a small place physically and frequently busy but if you have to wait in line for a bit it is well worth it. The staff...is friendly and helpful. When ever I am any where near Eugene I include a stop!More

The regular pies and crumbles were scrumptious. We also enjoyed the gluten free options like the banana split cupcakes. Plus, our dogs lived the peanut butter dog biscuits.

Like a kid in a candy store...your options are endless. The treats were delicious by the service was disappointing. There was a line out the door so I guess with a ton of customers craving sweets it doesn't matter how they treated the people. Regardless...I would go again for the food.More

Made a point to go to a local fave to get a birthday cake and had the worst service....almost like I was invisible, instead of a customer who chose to come out during Covid to support them. Waited outside til I was waved in, but...ignored after I got in. I’m literally the only one standing there - six feet away from their dessert case, trying to read the labels on the cakes - but the two dudes are not paying any attention, the gal is killing a spider that’s coming down from the ceiling-no joke! Finally one mumbles something from behind his mask and when I say “what?” he just points at the case...Um, ok. So I ask for the cake I want and when he brings it up to the counter he wraps it in the box and slides it towards me without a word. Wow. Not sure what their problem is, but they sure don’t make a paying customer feel welcome or your business appreciated. 👎🏻👎🏻More

We stopped for ice cream nearby and decided to check out this darling shop. Oh my, if I lived closer I would be in trouble. We got lemon and pecan bars. So good! They make a mean latte also!

This is probably the best place in Eugene to get a top-notch cake, cookie, pie, or petit-four. The main reason I've given it four rather than five stars is that there are some items I think of as standard that they don't routinely stock, for...example, cherry pie, eclairs, and bread pudding. But everything they do have on offer is delish.More

I go to Sweet Life regularly and I everything is pretty much perfect. The coffee is always great. I really like that they have a choice of medium or dark. This time I had a slice of the salted caramel chocolate cake. As always the...buttercream frosting was top notch. In between the layers was a creamy/buttery filling, which was just the right consistency to add another layer of flavor into the mix. I got the first slice!More

So many choices! Cakes,pies,tarts,tortes,cannoli,pastries and a few savory croissants. The coffee is good quality but not my taste preference. My favorite item is the sticky bun made with green apple.

You'd be better off calling them up than expecting them to reply on TripAdviser - (541) 683-5676. Don't know about them being certified GF or not, but they certainly do make GF items.
