The best chocolate chip and Snickerdoodle cookies on the planet. The cookies are huge, soft, buttery and addictive. Their sandwiches with homemade bread are also terrific. I'm far less enthusiastic about their pies, which don't taste nearly as good as they look. The crusts are great, but the fillings often disappoint.

This is a family operated cafe/bakery, with the original in Atwater, a site in Mariposa, and the newest location in a medical related business park on G Street in Merced - at El Portal. The bakery has great breads, rolls, pies, and other desserts. The menu is limited, but this allows good quality control. Food can be consumed on the premises; or, it can be packaged to go. Currently, it is not open Saturday or Sunday - but expanded hours are under consideration. Better than mosr deli's - and fresher thanmost other locales.

Jantz Cafe is nice. It's newer as places around Merced go, clean and inviting. It also has long lines at lunch. I like their food although there's nothing inspiring about it and there are a few things I always ask for substitutions on. I don't use the bakery a lot but what I've gotten there was good. Overall all, decent food, decent prices, not always great service, but decent.

Though our order was mixed up and then not mixed up and then mixed up again I still cannot fault this place. The service was polite and so friendly that the mix up was irrelevant. Good selection of items with each (that we tried) being extremely fresh and tasty. We went for breakfast and ended up with more food that we could eat though we were both hungry on arrival. We also ordered a whole pie to go and they were happy to hold onto it for us to return later to pick up. I can see this place becoming a regular haunt of mine.

Homemade baked goods. It's a delight. Glad they came to Merced. Famous biscuits. You'll be happy you went there.
