Googled bakeries in downtown and read the reviews, so we hsd to try it. Mexican hot chocolate brownie was excellent! Spicy! The lemon bar was good, but left a bitter aftertaste. The cupcakes were dry. The icing was great and flavorful.

I have seen tons of bakeries that had outstanding quality desserts yet never featured on food network. This place was PACKED at 1 pm. Nowhere to sit. The ordering is chaos. You don’t know who is in line. Or how the line is even going....More

Execution here is spot on, food is carefully constructed and quality is a top priority (thank you). The breakfast sandwich is the best I've had, hands down. The vegetarian options are delicious and carefully crafted. The coffee is better than directly across the street (Local)....More

Welcome to BIRD bakery, where everything we make is baked on-site, from scratch, each and every day. We use only the finest ingredients—from Plugra butter and Valrhona Cocoa to the highest quality Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla—because we believe that treating yourself also means treating yourself well. At the end of each day, all remaining cupcakes and treats are given to local non-profits and philanthropies and we begin baking again the very next morning. We would never sell “day old” or discounted product and guarantee that as our guest, you are enjoying the freshest delights baked just hours within your visit. Enjoy!
