Really enjoyed my custard roll from here. Anyone looking for a good bakery in Santa Anna this is the place for you. Two locations across the street from each other!

Great selection of pastries ranging from local goodies to the popular international cakes. This spot was in a perfect location for getting to know the downtown. We'll go back.

The vanilla-chocolate cake (with the oreo cookie on top) was almost inedible. It tasted like it was old and parts have become sour. But i'm afraid that even if it hadn't been old, it would have tasted like sugar and cardboard. Next time I'd rather try the pastries instead of overpriced horrible cake!

Walked by a few times and did not notice it, but I'm sure glad we found it a bit later. Cofee was fresh and hot, and the pastries were excellent. Great staff, very friendly and looked after us. The place is air conditioned and clean.

This pleasant bakery has very nice service and strong free WiFi. My husband had a delicious ham sandwich on freshly toasted bread and I had a very tasty nutella and strawberry crepe. I was hoping for a savory sandwich, but they didn't have any vegetarian sandwiches. That's ok though, I'm always happy to have a nutella anything. The staff was... More
