“Yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Lots of choices and very delicious. Pie, cheesecake, cakes and other yummy goodness. My only gripe is that a single slice is smaller now than it used to be.

“Thoughtful indulgence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Sweet Life is a wonderful patisserie that offers a wide variety of sweets and treats to choose from. They have cakes, tarts, pies, cupcakes, eclairs, cookies, croissants, ice cream, and meringues. They always have a good spread of flavor options too. They'll have a spicy chocolate cheesecake next to a lemon meringue or a raspberry poppy-seed cake with light fluffy whipped butter-cream. I always find something good for dessert, even if I don't know what mood I'm in when I go there.

They also have a few vegan, non-dairy, and/or gluten-free options as well. There is always a vegan or GF cupcake option, and several cakes as well. As someone who doesn't have any of these restrictions, I can say they taste just as good as their full ingredient counterparts.

As others have mentioned, be prepared for a line. It's a little tight, and if it is busy, try to enter from the right door because the line loops around inside. They have good people working there, and the line will go by pretty quick.

“Good stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

It sucks for parking! But if you live in Eugene would be nice to walk to. It gets very busy! Most know to form a line and wait you turn. But Everytime someone cuts. It's annoying that staff never points it out! But the sweets are yum!
