I purchased two cakes from Spruce for my wife's birthday a carrot cake and a chocolate raspberry frosting cake. Spruce confections has an excellent reputation for scones and coffee's but I have to admit that this was a disappointing purchase on my part. the carrot cake frosting was nowhere near what it should've been for a cream cheese frosting especially...

Great stop for coffee or tea, and a quick bite. Sweets are yummy. Selection of ready-made lunch items, too. A working bakery, so a bit noisy sometimes. Pleasant outdoor seating.

I have no idea how this place is so popular! Overpriced coffee and underwhelming baked goods! Seriously! I used to work nearby and they would bring us their leftovers at the end of the day. Not particularly good even when they're free!

Nice place, good food, nice people. Requested a high protein dish, and out came Heavenly HUmmus. Great. The yogurt cup is great, too...

This welcoming spot offers a variety of baked goods sure to please every palate. The service is speedy and very friendly, and the seating plentiful and spacious. A great local spot for a drop-in, or a hour of relaxation!

Nestled in a mixed use North Boulder neighborhood is the uptown Spruce Confection location. It’s a charming and cozy hot spot for drinks, baked goods and simple prepared foods to enjoy there or to go. The vibe is warm and inviting with locals streaming in and out. The staff is friendly and interesting. There is indoor seating with cool mismatched... More

Great espresso and fantastic baked goods. Love the scones, cookies, and danish. Lunch is great with homemade soups that change seasonally. Lovely outdoor patio for coffee and lunch.

Pretty much the best scones in Boulder, very good croissants and other sweet baked goods, OK sandwiches, The savories are very bad.
