The chocolate chewy cookies are amazing! I've also had the burnt almond cake and the pineapple upside down cake. They're known for their burnt almond cake, it is delicious. This is the only bakery in the area that makes pineapple upside cake, my husband's favorite.

I have gotten this cake for my birthday since 1982 and it is consistently the best. Old school good service and excellence- it's hard to keep that up for over 30 years. Thank you!
