This place is actually divided into two - the bakery on the right, and a cafe on the left. Their baked goods are amazing. But just as nice are the light lunch items at the cafe. There's only a little seating downstairs, but the entire upstairs is also available, and they have great wifi for remote workers. Warning, though: they... More

They think much more of their product than I do, Kellys on 67 or Old Town shame this place. At one time they were ok but now they are coasting into the sunset. I can't think of any reson to goo there and waste my money

I get their Italian bread often. My husband and I would stop at the deli for lunch after doctor appointments, etc. He enjoyed it. Very simple menu but well prepared sandwiches, soup, etc. Small space but worked for us. The bakery is my favorite. They prepared made to order and I have always been pleased. GREAT CAKES

YOU CAN NOT TAKE AWAY THAT THEY MAKE GREAT PASTRIES, but, why do they not make their own donuts. Everytime I went into their shop, no matter, the donuts were always cold or dry then I found out why they do not make their own!

Helfer's is known in the Florissant area for it's excellent cakes. We normally get a half-white/half-chocolate sheet cake with the butter cream icing. What makes it extra special is having it made with the strawberry preserves between layers. Very tasty!

Clean Friendly atmosphere. The desserts are fresh and sometimes even warm. Their Birthday cakes are decorated beautifully and the taste is just as good. You definitely get what you pay for.

Best around and I've been around! Delicious pastries that you just don't want to miss out on! Almost always have a frozen one or two Strawberry Whipped Cream Cakes available. and their strawberry angel food cake roll is to die for! Give them a try!

Just got home after coffee with friends. Had a chance to visit with Chris Helfer, the owner. After a an egg sandwich on croissant, we indulged with a great pastry, Good place for coffee, a nice lunch in deli, or just to pick up some baked goods.
