The sticky buns with pecans are super. The Mudslide cookies are the best cookies in the world and I have been eating cookies for many, many years. It is worth your time to go out of your way to stop by this location.

We stopped here after lunch elsewhere, for dessert. Each pastry is a work of art, beautiful to behold and delicious to taste. Service was good, and tea (if you're a tea lover) was special -- plenty of hot water in a teapot, a warmed cup,...More

Oh, where do I begin here, dear reader?? Perhaps with a long, miserable sigh and shattered illusions pertaining to a certain venerated institution of higher cookery…point blank, my recent visit to the Apple Pie Bakery Cafe nestled in the bosom of gastronomic academia was so...More
