Suelo ir los domingos por la manana a la panederia el pan es muy delicioso. Trato amable de la cajera hacia los clientes,exelente pero hoy presencie algo que realmente de indignó.La manager del lugar le habló muy feo a la cajera frente a todos los que estabamos comprando. No es la primera vez que veo este tipo de en este lugar. No cabe duda que entre nosotros los latinos en vez de apoyarnos, entre nosotros nos humillamos. Me da tristeza al ver situaciones asi. Por favor a la persona dueño/a del restaurante/panamderia ponga atención en esta situación al igual que yo muchas personas nos fijamos en este tipo de incidentes.
Ruby Bakery is my preferred bakery. It's where I order a cake every 1st Sunday of the month to honor birthdays of people in my congregation. It's also where I get sugar-free cookies for my friends who are diabetic. We all love their strawberry cream cakes, sure. And I buy quite a few of their chocolate cakes with chocolate mousse filling, chocolate frosting, and chocolate sprinkles. Oh, yeah!! Why? Because their cakes are great! And owners Amy, Brian, Eliott and the whole family are wonderful people. Try them!
Where do I start? I LOVE their cookies. I can just hide with a box of rugallahs and chocolate dipped lace florentines and come our only after they are all gone. I am convinced they add crack to their Napoleons. I love Vitor Benes' Napoleon but I have to give it to Beverlywood bakery on this one. Something about the custard and flakiness of the cake layers that make it amazing. No wonder this bakery has been in business for over 70 years.
We like their buffet on weekends and affordable combo meals . If you are craving for Filipino dishes, you have to try their all you can eat menu. Cakes and native desserts are available as well. Coffee is always free. You can get their famous ensaymada and mamon at their bakery in the same location. Since you are already there, you might as well get their VIP rewards card which earns points every time you purchase from them.
Cool spot. Large communal tables and good ole street parking. So now down to the food.Ok so I had the brioche french toast, in the beginning it was tasty but I then started to taste something similar to a lunch item, which leads me to believe they cook breakfast and lunch on he same griddle. I'm not saying it wasn't yummy just I don't want my breakfast to taste like lunch unless I order it that way. The latte was yummy.
Celaya's (I've only recently learned their name after years of visiting the place) can make a bad day way better. Their treats include jelly rolls, empanadas, huge cheese danish, sweet breads, Mexican candy plus bread rolls and FABULOUS tamales, either hot from the steamer or frozen to take home to your fridge. This place simply has something to perk up everyone's spirits and still leave change in everybody's pockets.
You can smell the sugar as soon as you walk in the door, LOL! The cupcakes are what they're known for, but I like to buy my cakes here for special occasions. After doing some comparison shopping at other boutique bakeries around town, I've found you can get a nice sized cake for a pretty decent price. The red velvet is probably my favorite. I always grab a banana pudding for later :)
Hands-down one of the best patios to sit and have a cocktail or a glass of chardonnay on a beautiful Saturday or Sunday afternoon. The food is pretty tasty and the pastries are over-the-top decadent. I can't resist their onion rings and the cheese plate is pretty great. The lines can get long but we've never had a problem grabbing a table so it's worth the wait.
Love their "Atwater Special" for lunch, which is eggs, spinach, crumbled bacon and tomato over grilled polenta with crispy parmesan cheese. They have awesome "cronuts," and it's hard to walk away without a loaf of their fresh-baked cheese bread. Scoring a table can be a little stressful when it's busy on the weekends, and prepare to scout street parking.
Their cakes are works of art there and it's also a lovely cafe. Ask for the sandwich and soup combos. But leave enough room for the cakes. The winter berry blossom cake is light and airy but not too sweet. A wonderful balanced white cake that goes well with... well, just about anything! The owner is super nice and is a true pastry artist.
