  • Must do: Swedish Blonde (cookies)
  • Lots of pastries to choose from and good prices. Closed on Sunday.
  • their marzipan "princess cake" is my favorite birthday cake - delicious!
  • Get two numbers and give one to a late comer. Pay it forward. And get the princess torte.
  • Announced days ago their last day business will be 2/28/17. :( Current owners have owned place since 1979, so I can see them retiring. Hope @last minute they find new buyer,so it doesn't close 4ever!
  • cookies, apple pastry, cakes, fruit tarts
  • Okay bakery. Seems like they would be open on one of the most trafficked days, Sunday but they are not.
  • Stick with the coffee cakes and goods on the left side of the store
  • OMG, those thin Swedish butter cookies remind me of grandma. Can't go to Andersonville without stopping for a box of cookies!
