Hey NA, you should probably try the place before you pass judgement, maybe they will have a great deal of customer support and be a great success. I don't know about you, but I welcome some sort of change from Calandra's over-rated and tired baked goods.

LOVE this place! What a find. Everything I've tried has been amazing, including the ice cream. I'm a baker so I love the little "extra" touches! My favorite thing is to pick up a box or two of the mini-cupcakes on my way to a party or friend's house. They have been a big hit!!!
