Cakes are made without artificial colors or flavors, and you won't feel guilty about taking home a carrot cake at the end of a rough day.
Hit or Miss – Mostly I'd say a hit. I haven't had a meal or coffee there, just desserts. The tarts are delicious, the cookies are bland, and the carrot cake is the best I have ever had. The best, although I hear it's rare to get it by the slice. The boring, hard raspberry frosting seems to be on everything. I have only been there at night, I have never experienced bad service or crowds.
Leaves me cold – This is such a great spot with so much potential but it just never really delivers. The bakery items are tasteless, the service (when you can find someone) is consistently unfriendly and slow. Someone needs to quality control the food, recipies and service and get this joint on the right track - it would be nice to keep an idependent alive in the land of "sameness".
Too cool – If your looking to stand in a long line and get attitude at the end of it this is the place for you. Constantly under staffed, the owner herself will stand and chat while you wait. The staff are more interested in their cloths and hair then their jobs, and if you don't like their hipster uniform your out. Of course you will still be expected to tip for the attitude. Do your self a favor go to starbucks the coffee is better.
Mostly good fare here – Division Street cafe and bakery features a number of pizza and grilled panini varieties. We tried some great pesto and decent pepperoni pizza. Wide variety of bakery items included so-so large molasses cookies, pretty good vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, and very good chocolate sponge cake. They have a lot of outdoor and sone indoor seating and also make their own gelato. A great place to stop when you're on Division Street but all-in-all probably not worth making a special trip to the area to visit.
awesome muffins – Really great muffins, the coffee is great! I have not tried lunch yet, I'm sure it is just as good.
YumMY – I love going to new places that aren't conventional and Letizia's is one of those places. They have really good food - not just desserts but sandwiches and pizza too. The people who work there are really nice and the service is quick too if you stay to eat. And, they deliver too!
All Natural – Food: The chocolatey cookies that pack in the wonderful Blommer's smell, the scrumptious muffins (pumpkin!!) and the vegetable panini - jam-packed with all sorts of fresh veggies loosely held by incredible freshly baked bread. Whoever complains about service must be in another world. Be a good customer, then you'll get great service. Scrabble and other board games await you and don't forget to grab a cookie for yourself on the way out. My only qualm/quibble is that the prices for all the goodies are not listed, except sandwiches, so I never know how much I'm paying for what.
What a score! – You will not find Herman Miller chairs in this cozy Bakery and coffee shop. ANd that's a plus! Great Iced Lattes and Huge sandwiches is what I've always come here for, but The cakes are what really shines! Great to see a family business thriving in the midst of "corporate" or snoibby establishments. If you try it, you will be back!
Sweet! – How many places pride themselves on making nothing lowfat? THIS IS THE WAY A BAKERY SHOULD BE! Muffins and cookies are delicious. I discovered this place when someone brought some Chocolate Bomb cake to one of our dinner party... I had to see this place for myself. I found a laid back place with all of the quality and none of the bad attitude we find in the city nowadays. I have never been dissapointed and I urge you to try it too! Oh yeah, Excellent Espresso Drinks and Lunch too!
what a pizza! – I've had slices in the store and it's really good, but when I ordered it delivered....whoah man! It's loaded with toppings, not just sprinkled here and there like most places! If you can get over the fact that the pizza is square (like in italy) it's definitely a Ten! (and reasonably priced too)
