We often make our own cakes and desserts at home from scratch but on occasion will purchase from Publix bakery or other places. We were in the area of Caroline's, had seen it quite often when dining at Mystic Fish or Positano's and decided to get some treats for dinner. Well they were nothing to write home about. Two key...

I ordered cupcakes from this bakery for my Christmas Eve dinner. They were horrible. I believe these cupcakes were baked at least a week earlier - they were dry and tasteless. I was so embarrassed as I looked around the table and noticed that all my guests had taken only 1 bite of the cupcakes. I paid $4 each for... More

Located in a strip mall, it's easy to pass. What we had for lunch was good. The croissants were very much to my liking, too.

Stopped at the lights on Tampa Road, noticed the cafe/bakery in the strip mall and decided to drop in as we wanted something for breakfast. There's indoor and outdoor seating plus plenty of parking. We sat inside at a table looking through the menu and a server attended quickly to take our drinks order - I had hot tea and... More

This is great for breakfast - delish quiche, plus their lunch items are available for breakfast, which is great when your BF is not a breakfast fan. Delicious soups - chicken velvet - and sandwiches. Only downside is no refills on coffee. Be sure to get dessert to go - cookies, cakes and pies. So many sweets, so little time...

Top shelf selection of artisan baked goods. Special occasion made to order goods. My birthday cakes each year come from here. The German Chocolate cake is to die for.

Delicious dessert and luncheon foods. A little pricey however the price you pay for quality ingredients. They use real butter!

I had purchased bread and desserts from the bakery and finally decided to get lunch here. There were three vegetarian sandwiches on the menu and I had the avocado, tomato, sprouts and lettuce wrap. It was small, but very good, fresh and flavorful. It came with a small portion of coleslaw that was also very good. There is a nice... More

Although I try to diet, it is difficult when in this store. I am always tempted to take-out several different desserts to try at home later. Everything is so good.

If you are looking for a good dessert, this is not the place to look. I love supporting small businesses, but unfortunately this not one I can recommend. The experience started with a less than friendly employee that literally stared at me when I came in, and said nothing until I spoke to her. That being said, my friend and... More
