Lovely little bakery run by a delightful Asian gentleman. We bought several different types of cookies, which were packed in contemporary cellophane with happy sayings on them. Crisp citrus nut, chocolate/vanilla wafers, almond crisps, green tea...they were all excellent. Also had a slice of the green tea cheesecake which had a light and delicate flavor. Can't wait to go back!

Love their green tea cakes and cheese cakes, bubble tea (especially blueberry). Not cheap, but very good deserts.

Cute little bakery with great food. I got the chicken wrap and it was very good. Nice and cool, right on the main drag.

Very good bubble tea, it's very light and not overpoweringly sweet, which I like. The cakes are very nice and fluffy as well!!

I do not like regular American cake with a lot of frosting on it. The cake from this bakery was the only cake that I have eaten in America that has not made me sick. The people in this store are very nice and the other baked goods, bread especially, is very good.

Wonderful little bakery, Asian inspired with delicacies. Also serves sandwiches for lunch. Try their bubble tea- delicious. Great breads, cookies ( e.g. Green tea cookies with pumpkin seeds or Rose walnut cookies) and calming ambiance. Cash only.

Great Service, Wonderful Sandwiches and Desserts. Great price and quality service. The bread melts in your mouth and the red peppers instead of tomatoes are fabulous.

Stopped in on a whim and bought a few packs of the delicate, crispy butter cookies and a mango cheese bar (because I just had to know what that was about). The cheese bar was big enough to share, small and light enough to be selfish. Gotta try the mocha next time. I'd take one over a $3 cake pop... More

Went in on a Sunday because Cake bakery was closed. Bought a slice of cake (chocolate forest), pecan bar, and mango mousse - all were delicious, fresh tasting, and not too sweet. The pecan bar was particularly tasty - highly recommend a try! Note: they only take cash.
