I have had a number of foods from there over the years, but ventured over for myself for the first time. I have had amazing cheesecakes. Trust me; you should buy one. The bakery itself is very small, but that tells me that they are focused. Muffins are huge and rich. Cakes are delicious.

OMG is the best way to describe the pastries, breads and breakfast pizza. My favorite is the cinnamon Scone. Like no other! Moist and addictive. Please try the cranberry walnut bread. You won't be disappointed.

Our dear friends offered to bring dessert after dinner a couple Saturdays ago. They shopped at this bakery and had a cinnamon roll for the way home, which they said was incredible. They brought a selection of choices, an apple layered cake pastry and two different types of brownies- the sea salted caramel and the triple chocolate. The apple pastry... More

Everything is fresh and delicious. My mom comes here almost every weekend on Saturday morning and the things she brings home do not last long in the house.

Their challah and baked breads are good and a little crisp. Their quiches aren't so great but their sweet baked goods are delicious.

This is the real deal. Everything is made to perfection. OMG , the bread.... Pastries, breakfast goods are the best. We had a strawberry/ rhubarb pie as part of a Fathers' Day dinner. It was so good. Quality does cost you. Don't expect ordinary bakery prices. You pay for what you get. AND it's worth every cent...give this place a... More

This is one of those places (like my favorite Italian deli) where I should walk in with just $10 in my pocket. Invariably I can't walk out without much more than I had planned on. Admittedly I've never tried their cakes (yet) but their offerings of scones and pastries are incredible. The selections change daily which is where they "hook... More

Scratch Baking has the most delicious breads and pastries...the ciabatta is outstanding, and do try the apple bars. The staff is so friendly, and the aroma as you walk in...wow!

Our favorite is the flax bread - everyone we've shared it with raves about it. It's just the right texture and flavor. The ciabatta is amazing, too. You can't go wrong stopping in here.

The best ciabatta bread I have ever eaten. (And I have been to Italy twice!) Amazing! They have lots of other goodies as well they make it all on the premises.
