We stopped in for an evening snack and we were not disappointed. Located on Chocolate Ave in downtown Hershey, this quaint coffee shop offers beverages, desserts, pastries, and light fare. Outdoor and indoor seating available. Pastries and desserts were amazing. So many offerings it was hard to choose just one. It was located very close to our hotel (Travelodge) but... More

A little pricey but the food is fantastic. We like to go here for a treat and coffee every now and then. We also buy the local made dog treats for my puggle. Cute little shop.

Decor and atmosphere is nice, but the girl helping us was a little surly. And like most bakeries, some items are better than others. Cookie...good. Cinnamon roll...good due to the size and creamy frosting. Cream puff...not as good because I prefer my cream to be lighter instead of having an "eggsy" flavor.

I have stopped here with my kids several times because we are locals. It is a cute little shop, but every time we have gone the staff has continually been rude & unpleasant! They never smile or greet you. The desserts on the other hand are pretty good, although $2.50 for a mini cupcake is a bit steep. Not sure... More

The desserts are delicious and the special order cakes are great! They even do reasonable size last minute cakes, very impressed with them! :-)

Every time me and my husband come to Hershey we have to make a stop here. It's the cutest little bakery with a large selection of baked goods. The cupcakes are delicious and always so fresh! I definitely recommend stopping here when you're in Hershey!

Just ate "brunch" there on recommendation by some people we met at a vineyard. Oh My! Had the best Latte I've ever had and the biggest most delicious lemon poppyseed muffin filled with cream cheese frosting! They have all kinds of beautiful looking cakes and cupcakes also! Friendly staff too. Highly recommend!

We decided to go to desserts etc after eating at the Hershey pantry and glad we did. Their desserts are out off this world. Gonna include a couple pics with my review. I had a chocolate croissant and shared a red velvet cupcake and ended up going back and picking up a whole red velvet cake. If you like red... More

This bakery was awesome and endless choices. The staff is very welcoming and let's you take your time to browse the display cases. There really is something for everyone with the choices of cookies, cakes, pie, muffins, and more with even some gluten free choices. We went for breakfast and ended up going back to get a birthday cake to... More
