Don't let the exterior or that it's on the edge of a faded shopping strip mall deter you from eating or getting some terrific baked goods here. The pastries have very flaky crusts and some have a whipped cream filling so you have eat those in short order. The olive bread is excellent as well. We'll have to go back... More

Get there early for best selection. Can't get it any fresher. Love that you could buy half loaves of bread. Will return

Don't be afraid to try anything here. We started with "standard" pastries, but the Azuki Cream Pan is delicious. Curry Pans, All of the bread and rolls - especially the olive loaf. Spam and egg musubi. Just be aware that it's so good you may have to wait. I try and go by 7:00 on weekends to avoid a line.... More

Tucked into a shopping center, Cream Pan is a delightful find! Their signature strawberry croissants are a must-try. A variety of fresh breads, pastries and light lunch options with pleasant indoor and outdoor seating, perfect for a quick lunch or a leisurely visit with friends. The egg salad sandwich on a fresh roll for less than 3 dollars hit the... More

Best strawberry croissants! The cakes are really tasty too. My favorite is the African Queen cake. Long lines on the weekend but worth the wait.

Fresh baked, flaky pastry stuffed with strawberries and whipped cream. It's just as good as it looks and it looks out of this world. There are a million other creations here and I have not been disappointed but you have to eat a strawberry pastry! It's always packed but the service is very brisk. The prices are amazing. I don't...

This little unassuming bakery has some delicious pastries. The best (in my humble opinion) is the Strawberry Croissant. But I'm sure so many of the others are great as well. Definitely worth trying if you're in the area. Mornings are best but you'll get a long line at times. (Good indication of a great place, huh?) Small seating area -... More
