“If you love delicious cakes, this is your destination.”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Don't be fooled by this store in a dated strip mall, it contains hidden and unexpected delights. The cakes are exceptional with delicate fillings, tender crumb, and just the right level of sweetness. These are pastries for people who appreciate fine foods made by people who truly care about artisanal baking. The tres leches and tiramisu are particularly memorable!

“Excellent coffee, amazing pastries. A true gem in this baked goods wasteland”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

I am very particular about sweets and love excellent baked goods (just browse my reviews). Since moving to College Station over five years ago, the biggest problem I have had was finding a place that makes good baked goods, desserts, and coffee. Every place I have visited in the BCS area either made mediocre cakes & cookies tailored for the overly sweet and fat loving American palate, or produced completely inedible goods due to buttercream frosting avalanches and cookies that resemble cow piles. Not any more. 1541 makes absolutely delicious cakes (and coffee). The tiramisu is as good as I have had in Italy. So is the espresso.

This small place is a gem tucked away in a strip mall behind the evil empire of Walmart. Busy at times because it seems students can sniff good espresso 90 miles against the wind, it is the perfect place to pick up some cake to go or enjoy a freshly caramelized creme brulee. I truly hope 1541 keeps up the amazing quality, because I am not planning on moving any time soon. And without 1541, life would be much harder for me in this town with few top notch food choices.

1541, you will see me regularly (although I hope you will soon have more comfortable sofas in house).
