Nice bakery in the Patterson Place shopping area, near Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohls. Clean store, friendly guy rang me up. I liked the artwork on the walls. Their cupcakes looked delicious but since I got it to go and was driving I picked the peanut butter cookie and the raisin oatmeal cookie. They were huge! Total with tax was about $8. Didn’t realize until I got home I got the chocolate chip cookie instead of the peanut butter. Oh well. Nice place. Go check them out!

First off, I’m going back!! I called and asked about cinnamon rolls and I was told by Lydia (hopefully I spelled it right) that a new batch just came out of the oven. When I arrived, I was immediately greeted and taken care of. Best of all, Lydia remembered me from our phone call! The cinnamon rolls are fantastic. It’s how you expect a really good cinnamon roll to taste. 10 out of 10 would recommend!!!!

Hands down the best bake shop around. Incredibly friendly & welcoming staff. We tried a little of most things and nothing was short of delicious. But those cinnamon rolls are the best we’ve ever had. Highly recommend a visit!

hands down the best desserts I have ever had in my entire life. I love desserts I am part Italian and part polish and our groups are known for their desserts. this woman and her family know their stuff. If they ever make anything with Andes chocolate candies I am doomed. I love the minty chocolate stuff. Welcome to the area bakery. I hope you are here for years to come. I am hungry :)

I stopped in yesterday and bought several baked goods for the family to try. Everything was beyond delicious! I think the caramel blondie was my favorite but it’s really hard to choose. I’m only grateful that I live far enough away that I can’t stop in daily. The owner is a delight too.

Friendly service in a warm space. My wife and I really enjoyed the hummingbird cake and the fudge brownie. I'm looking forward to coming back and trying the rest of the menu!

The chocolate chunk cookie is one of the best I’ve ever had. I’ve visited twice now and both times the goods were super fresh and absolutely amazing. This place is now my go-to when I want a lil treat.

My husband and I went there this weekend and got a blondie, cupcake, and cookie. They were all absolutely divine! The space combines minimalism with comfort, and the seating "bar" by the kitchen is a nice touch. Everyone working there was friendly and helpful. We definitely plan to return!!

Amazing desserts! Our favorites are their Black Wall Street and Hummingbird cakes - they are to die for. My husband and I just tried their Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll and I really hope they make it a permanent item because it was the best cinnamon roll I've had in my life! So unbelievably delicious.

Nice staff, delicious baked goods. I really enjoyed the brownie - fudgy and moist. I’ll be back!
