Whether you're just stopping by for dessert or a whole meal, this bakery has it all. Whenever I'm in the Capitola area, I always make an effort to stop here. All the food is exquisite, and be sure to pick up a pastry or two for breakfast the next morning.

This place is fun, even if you even love to just people-watch. In the hour or so we were there, they went through their 1-100 list of 'take-a-number' about 3 times. This place works. Your number comes up and the helpful employee directs you to make your selection from the extensive bakery area, then around to the already prepared excellent sandwiches (I love that they are ready early in the day), then any side dishes. Then you grab a table in the adjoining room. Drinks are ordered in a separate room. We loved the marinated bell pepper strips, the eggplant, the tuna on baguette with cheese and pickle slices, the blueberry turnover and the chocolate cookies. My husband says this will become a stop for him on his business travel.

Enjoyed the food although very busy. Lots to choose from. Had breakfast and also bought yummies for later on the beach . Plan to return next time I'm in the area .

great eye appeal! the Ticket machine was a bit confusing but the line moved quickly. We stopped for lunch take-out and ended up getting pastries for b'fast the next day. It was so good we ended up back the next day to get dinner and more pastries!

Food selections galore and they charge by weight, so you can get as much or as little as you want. Delicious food, affordable prices. Desserts, desserts, desserts! There were 5 of us and we each ordered something different from sugar cookies to German chocolate cake to cinnamon rolls. So fresh so fab!
