I have used this bakery for a while but will no longer. Cakes used to be very good but the last 2 or 3 I have gotten are dry. Called about the last one I got, no offer of refund or getting another one. On top of that they are expensive. I will say they are good at putting what... More

I was given a gift card to Gretchen's a place that I had passed by several times but never stop in. When I finally did go it was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend any of the sandwiches or cookies.

I have had many cakes here - all have been top notch. They also serve lunch and have great sandwiches. Tons of deserts too, cookies, etc... You will not be disappointed trying any thing.

Gretchens is the best place for cakes. They are fresh and delicious. She has not only cakes but also lots of cookies and candies. All of them are homemade and wonderful. One of the best things is the price, very reasonable! So if you can't pick just one you won't break the bank. The potato, broccoli and chicken salad are... More
