    Our #1 choice for our wedding cake because everything they make is amazing! With a new tasting room and ever growing menu of baked goods, sweet treats, and pastries, this is one of the city's best!

    No longer an old school Polish bakery but still great. Bow Truss coffee, airy croissants, stunning fondant work, and mini cakes stand out. Late hours and breakfast pastries for half price at night.

    The yellow-and-black dotted lemon poppyseed macaron is refreshing, as is the deep green pistachio. All the varieties are filled with a consistently smooth center.

    Loved their macarons! I tried the Nutella, peanut butter and jelly, and chocolate paradise - all of which were fantastic!

    The kronut: a vanilla bean pastry cream topped with a rose glaze that looks nearly like the real McCoy and nearly triples the bakery’s croissant production. Read more

    I lived in this building in '94 and the bakery is every bit as good as it was back then......one of the last vestiges of the good old days on Division street

    The best carrot cake cupcakes I've ever had. Also, the lounge next door is great for reading while having a coffee.

    Solid bakery on the Division corridor. They serve BowTruss coffee. Come here for the calories and work space. Support local.

    Order a delicious coffee and croissant from this old bakery, then walk next door to their separate lounge area. Outdoor seating but the wifi doesn't work well from there. Usually not crowded.

    Red Velvet cupcake filled with raspberry confit...AMAZING. The lounge next door also has wifi with a very strong internet connection and a decent amount of outlets.

    The kronuts are overcooked, heavy & oily. If you want to try without committing to entire kronut, you can buy a kronut hole for 50 cents.

    You get coffee & such at the bakery (where the ornate cakes are), but there's a cafe area next door where you can sit & enjoy free WiFi

    I really wish I had something better to say but the staff was douchey and they wrote the wrong name on my cake. Overall, bummed. Cool but not.
