This is a nice little spot in Santa Cruz, they have good food and desserts. Order and pay at the cashier and they will bring the food to your table. We had a good experience, but we definitely think it is a little too expensive.

Went to visit friends in Santa Cruz and they live pretty close to this place. Delicious tiramisu, dark chocolate truffles and éclair au chocolat to write home about! There's a whole lot, and the ones that I have tried were all very yummy. I already...More

In all fairness, I never tried any bakery items, only reviewing the mocha. It was good. There is outside seating which would be very nice when the weather is warmer. Western location. The inside is OK and will have to try some sweets next time!

We stopped in for a quick cup of coffee. The bakery had an awesome selection and the food looked delicious. A little crowded on a cold day. The poached looked impeachable, it appeared to be a local favorite. No wifi here.

Wonderful French style breads are created here at Kelly's. I didn't have time for lunch or dessert (next time) and the line was out the door. Wonderful retail help and again the best Pain Francese.

An excellent place for lunch, especially for sitting outside when the weather is nice. Fish tacos and chicken noodle soup were great. Pastries look very good too.

I have been going here for years and it is always good. It is hidden in a cute little business park with wineries, restaurants and a brewery. The pastries are always excellent. My favorite dishes for lunch are the fish tacos, crab cake sandwich, cole...More

Everything looks beautiful and tastes ok. Nothing stellar. It is a good decent store that sells baked goods. Not sure how much is actually baked on site. People are very nice.
