I have been a faithful customer for many years. The quality of their desserts is always the highest. The display cases are full of beautiful, delicious treats. My personal favorites are the Carrot Cake and Gerardo Cheesecake with fresh fruit grenade. The staff is efficient and always friendly. Please, do yourself a favor and stop in...

The cakes and desserts are always fabulous. Some are works of art. You can't just buy one! The prices are reasonable and they take orders.

They do a wonderful job of providing deserts for our local theatre. The cookies and brownies are delicious. The service is very good. The bakery is nice and clean and cheerful. Stop by you won't be disappointed.

A co-worker brought me this HUGE slice of heaven. She didn't realize that strawberry shortcake is my absolute favorite treat in the world. She gave it to me before work and I literally was eating it so fast, I had to get up and walk away from my desk for fear that I would eat it all before lunch. It... More

If you want something that you don't see on their menu tell them and they will make it for you. I wanted a black... More

This is a fabulous bakery/pastry shop! You can pre-order a unique dessert with appropriate sentiments or you can also just pick up one of their amazing desserts from the case! Great croissants, too, of course.It's hard to walk out without thinking "I really need one more goodie!"

The best cakes you will ever eat. The desserts are the best and you will be like a kid while trying to decide what to get. Crazy crazy the red velvet cake is the best.
