“Old is not necessarily gold”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

This is a very old place and used to be one of the nicer place in Chennai in the 80s. Now many better alternative have come and out shined this small joint. The management has not taken care of this place nor its development. This could have been one of the best but sadly it was not to be,

“Good selection”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Good selection of pastries. They do take care to ask you for specific designs when you order birthday cakes. The brownies are really good.

“Topnotch quality of cakes”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

As far as I remember, my mom started buying cakes from cakes and bakes since 1986. The quality of cakes has definitely not diminished. The price of cakes are less expensive and affordable. I have purchased cakes or pastries from hot breads on emergency cases but never had the same or better quality of cakes like cakes and bakes. Cakes and bakes will always have extra cakes just in case someone comes and asks in the night before closing or when opening in the morning. But, that doesn't mean these cakes don't sell. They are sold in no time. A quarter kilo of chocolate truffle costs only Rs 250/- and as far as I remember, this price has remained the same for the last five years. I can never buy cakes from another place hehe.
