Loved the coconut macaroon, I regret just getting one to try other baked goods, but hands down the best dessert there. My friends loved the cinnamon and cholo are pretzel, to me was good as a pastry but not the kind of doughy pretzel I’m...More

I had hoped to see a REAL bakery , with breads and pastries . This is just a place to sell high priced little cookies and desserts to tourists. They’re ok, just not that exceptional.

Stopped by here for baked goods. Got an almond horn, a crispy, an apple turnover and a raspberry filled pastry. The young lady working there was super sweet and patient and made good recommendations. Would definitely come here again =)

Not a place to come for ice cream. The scoops were very small and when called to the managements attention, was just shrugged off. The bakery goods are very generous and very good

You have to go and get the Cannoli's. Just the right size and not to filing. Busy little place and usually has a line but they get you through fast and they are all friendly!

This was once only a very good bakery. But over the years they added more options; coffee, sandwiches, and even ice cream. Still a very good bakery, but size has not expanded. A few tables to sit at which hasn't changed.

We stopped by this bakery as part of the Carmel Food Tour and were treated to spinach quiche made from scratch. My husband is of the belief that "real men don't eat quiche" but was blown away by the delicious quiche with lots of real...More
