“The best bakery in northern CA!!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

It's a deli and a bakery...the bakery is excellent....with countless cookies, cakes, breads....my favorite cake is their Princess cake! YUM..sponge cake, vanilla cream, raspberry jam, more sponge cake and whipcream topped with real marzipan...it's outrageous! They also have all kinds of coffees and teas etc as well....YOU HAVE TO GO HERE...IT DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!!
Love it!

“Always Great Stuff”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

One of the two great bakeries in Santa Cruz county, with great service.
This past Thanksgiving Gayle's was out source for Pecan Pie, and condiments, which everyone liked.
Once a week, we generally stop by for the Blue Plate Special, a great dinner to have when you have limited time. And be sure to pick up a few eclairs or cookies, delicious...
A bit pricey, but a good value!

“a gem!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Just love this place! So many amazing things to see and try. We got a princess cake that was out of this world! A bit pricey (more than Whole Foods' prices for a cake; it was $32) but I've never had anything that wasn't simply amazing.
