Tried this place twice and came away with a "meh" feeling. Prices were okay, staff was very courteous and helpful. Bakers....well, need something to be desired. Wish I could give a higher review.

Stopped here in passing hoping to find a coffee and pastry. What a find - the products made and sold here are excellent. Fresh, well made, superbly presented and absolutely delicious. The lady in front of me spent over $80 on a large selection of cakes and pastries and I can now fully understand why. This place is popular, yet... More

After a terrible meal at a restaurant in the area, we were in need of tea and coffee to help wash away the memory. :) Saw the great rating and had to stop- SO glad we did! There were so many wonderful things to choose from! I had tea with some chocolates. My dining partner had a espresso with a... More

I've visited in the morning, the afternoon and even late night and Bijan's has been very busy. The desserts are very good and the cakes look great! I especially like the scones in the morning and there is a German raspberry torte which is especially good. They also make sandwiches and of course coffee/tea.

Spectacular assortment of the very, very, very best desserts and pastries. Enjoyed an amazing Tiramisu cake - the best ever! Kinda pricy but worth every penny - don't let a crumb go to waste! The attention to detail in decorating is 2nd to none. Keep up the good work!

Just bought a strawberry shortcake from Bijan Bakery for family b-day and boy was it delicious, so light and airy with fresh strawberries. We all enjoyed it!! My family commented how light it was and not too sweet, we don't like very sweet desserts. If you haven't tried, check it out. They had a wide variety of cakes to choose... More

We stopped in for some pastries to enjoy in our room. They have too many lovely treats to choose from! Our family generally chooses anything chocolate, and the variety of dessert we selected were all delicious.
