Reviewed May 15, 2016

Heard a lot about this place and had to try....the shop is unremarkable by itself but really, you're there for the cakes....the selection was a bit limited but to be fair, it was later in the day...I had the cookie dough which was very nice made into a shake...I definitely have to try this place again as there are too many good reviews of this place. I think I caught them on an off day :)
Service was very good too....

I often stop by to pick up cakes (probably more often than I should). The flavours are always creative and change weekly. I'm sure to follow them on Twitter to see the weekly selection of cakes (watch out on Fridays because there's usually a special cake).

Beyond the cakes, if you love brownies, this is the place to go. My mother is notoriously picky when it comes to food, but loved the brownies.

Whether sandwiches or cakes, Micheal's originality and creativity ALWAYS produce fantastic treats. What an imagination he has. I have never been disappointed with any "common", limited addition, or personal/specialty ordered cake.

Was really excited to try this place, had high expectations because I heard good things. My sandwich (smoked chicken, Dijon mayo, pea spread, cheese, carmelized onions, and chips on a bun) was good, but didn't impress me much. I can make better sandwiches at home. Also didn't like that the bun was cold, like it had been refrigerated.

My friend bought a sandwich at cake and shake today, she gave me a bite of it and it was DELISHHHHH - I think it was ham, cheese, potato salad, crispy onions and chips..
I will definitely go back for a sandwich! My other friend is addicted to the shakes... I haven't tried them yet :)
