We stopped here to get something "special "for a friend.While we were there, we decided to get some cookies for ourselves. The quality was not superior to the cookies I make, but they were a lot more expensive! We don't plan to make a repeat visit.

The motto on the wall says, "Life is short, eat the cookie." I love that they give a free cookie with the sandwich. I stopped in as I was exploring the town, having just moved here. It's a fun little cafe! There aren't too many options on the menu, but the Turkey Delight was awesome! You also have your choice... More

We picked up 2 cinnamon rolls and 2 caramel pecan rolls on our way from the airport for breakfast the next day. We all loved the rolls! We were referred by a family member and so glad we checked the place out. We are going to make this a routine stop whenever we have out of state visitors that fly... More

i can't think of anyone i know who would not realllllly enjoy Sweet Cakes. It is a little pricey when compared with the grocery store bakeries, but, well worth it.

Great cookies (they are huge!) BUT have a look at the menu first prior to arriving so as to not be disappointed. The name of the bakery indicates something other than a focus on cookies and few other bits, but the focus is cookies and a few other bits. Not cakes, per se. The cashier didn't seem to know the...

Located close to the Mesa Arts Center downtown, Sweet Cakes is a great place to have a sandwich and/or something sweet. Their signature pieces are the giant cookies, but the cinnamon buns and sandwiches are equally as good!
