We went here because of the good ratings and were a bit disappointed. The cakes are not bad but they are also not better than something you could easily bake in your own house. They serve simple chocolate and carrot cakes and no bread. They...More

One of the only places in the country i found that makes a good moist heavy cake. Banana bread, chocolate cake, and my favorite....carrot cake. A lot of bakeries end up with dry and crumbly cake, but not this place. It helps though that it...More
