I've been going to Zachary's to get mini desserts for 3 years now. It's great to have a variety of desserts when you're say going to a dinner party, or to visit friends. Zachary's mini cheesecakes are soft and fluffy (key lime is seasonal and its the best flavor), they usually have raspberry, pumpkin, strawberry, blueberry for cheese cake. They... More

Zachary's reputation is powerful, and, now they have wonderful gluten-free pastry and baked goods. I just have to be careful not to go too often!

I ordered a chocolate creme pie. I was not impressed after serving and eating it. It had too much mediocre whipped? creme and not a lot of chocolate. I could of made it better myself from scratch. It was kind of disappointing because i went in as looking and expecting something special, it wasn't.

I love baked goods but their pastries that I have had are all poor, very bland and just boring. My wife has ordered numerous speciality cakes from them and again you would be better off going to the supermarket for one. My sister in law ordered a red velvet cake and it was truly one of the worst cakes I... More

I ordered a honeybee themed cake and cupcakes for my daughter's baby shower. I showed them photos of what I had in mind and what they came up with was so much better! Everyone raved about the amazing work, both the artistry and the taste and texture!! Beyond what we imagined! The people are friendly and go out of their... More

Recently ordered a cake for a family reunion, far better than expected, expertly decorated, wonderful fillings and decadent butter cream frosting, great value at $52 for a 12" round cake. You will never have another grocery store cake after you have one of these.

All the pastries are wonderful. They also have lunch specials and dinner specials. Wish they would stay open later and be open on Sunday.

I have been shopping here since the store opened. We bought our wedding cake and a 50th birthday cake here. Guests were bowled over by the flavors, icing, and texture. Great place for brownies and bars of all kinds. The chocolate raspberry tart (also available as a single portion) is excellent. My only complaints are the prices sometimes and my... More
