Not Just Fondant...

Just passing by it, you will notice the window display of many fondant cakes. I’ve never had fondant cakes (they look a little too artificial) but the other baked goods looked very appealing.

Bonus points:
1. For summer, they set up an outdoor patio (just like Mana Food Bar next door). You can just hang out and chat eating yummy dessert up to closing time.

2. Lounge nextdoor – they have a lounge with tables and a couch next door so people can play games, study, read, chat, work on their laptops, whatever they want to do. Loved it.

Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding

I really like bread pudding. This one was a tad harder than I would have liked (almost like a very chewy cookie) but loved the fact that it had chocolate chips inside.

Tres Leches

Soft tres leches cake with whipped cream on top. Mmmmm. So good.

Raspberry Hazelnut Cheescake

Good cheesecake, liked fruit on top (raspberry and strawberry). Couldn’t really taste the hazelnut… but then again, I was having way too many desserts.

Tiramisu

By far, THE best dessert we got. It’s hard to mess up tiramisu but then again, I’ve had really bitter ones. This was perfection.

Nice when the weather's warm

It's nice to sit outside of this bakery and coffee shop when the weather's warm. The baked goods are very good. Otherwise, though, I wouldn't bother sticking around because they have kind of a weird setup--the room with the couches is…

good study spot

Good study spot with a variety of teas and coffees. Baked goods are great. Quiet room usually full of people studying. Makes you feel like you should too.

Tips
  • Ordering a custom cake is convenient using the bakery's online order form. Simple cakes take about 48 hours to create, while more ornate designs require 72 hours.
  • Owner Peter Rios has competed in many national and international pastry competitions, including a Food Network Challenge and the Grand Prix of Chocolat in Paris.
  • By virtue of the access to free WiFi, the bakery's next-door lounge space is more a second office for students and work-from-home types than a place to meet and mingle. If you're planning to chat, keep the volume down to avoid looks of unveiled scorn from fellow patrons.
  • Try the custom-roasted "Librarian Blend" coffee from local roaster Intelligentsia.
