Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 8th this year — it’s coming up fast! We hope you can stop by and join us for Mother’s Day Brunch at either our Santa Clara or Fremont locations. If you don’t already know, these two locations serve hot breakfast daily. On weekdays breakfast runs until 10:30am but onweekends we serve brunch (both breakfast and lunch is available) until 3pm!
Eggs Benedict//California Omelet
So bring your mom in to enjoy a full menu of hot breakfast foods like scrambles, omelets, Eggs Benedicts, waffles and French Toast. We also serve a variety of continental breakfast items (our chocolate croissants are an instant hit!) as well as freshly brewed organic, fair trade coffee! Special for Mother’s Day we will also be serving $1.99 mimosas, valued at $4.99, at our Fremont location. Our Fremont location is great for groups and, if weather permits, great for outdoor seating. You’re more than welcome to call in for a reservation for large groups (10+) to ensure seating.
Probably the best part (breakfast and mimosas aside) is you won’t have to go anywhere else for dessert! No celebration is complete without cake and we have plenty of them. For Mother’s Day we’re recommending our beautiful and delicious Tiramisu Cheesecake.
Don’t forget to place your orders in advance! We’ll also have other goodies ready in our case (fruit tarts, lemon tarts, eclairs, etc) but if it’s a cake (or if you need large quantities), best to place an order. Hope to see you Sunday, May 8th, and Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there :)

I can’t believe the holiday season is behind us. 2010 definitely seemed to have flown by, and now we’re almost done with January too! I suppose that’s how Valentine’s Day creeps up on us. I don’t know about you but more than once have I found myself scrambling for a present at last minute. Something more creative than some flowers or a box of chocolates, yet still meaningful and perhaps even delicious.
This is where we step in!
Last year we began making our famous Chocolate on Chocolate cake in the shape of a heart. We drizzled some raspberry icing on the top, decorated with a few chocolate pieces and a couple raspberries. It turned out beautifully, so we’re happy to offer it again.
In addition, for Mother’s Day last year we stumbled across a sweet creation in our kitchen. We married two of my favorite desserts to create a tasty Tiramisu Cheesecake, unique to our bakery. This is available in 8″, 10″ and a 6″ heart.
And for years now we’ve been making our Sweetheart Cake specially for this occasion. Taking the same chocolate cake that put us on the map (so to speak!), we kicked it up a notch from our Chocolate Rum by frosting it with raspberry cream cheese. It’s so good we often get requests for it throughout the year but it’s only available these couple of weeks – so make sure to place your order!
If you or your loved one aren’t cake people though, we do have several other options: cream puff hearts (filled with fresh whipped cream, covered with dark chocolate and drizzled with raspberry icing), individually-sized heart-shaped Strawberry Mousse, heart-shaped cookies (available in Raspberry Sandwiches, Half-Dippeds, Gingerbread, and Snickerdoodle).
Critics call this holiday a “Hallmark Holiday”. It may or may not be true, but we hope you enjoy it anyway and let the people you love know you love them! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Recently we have mixed two of my favorite products: cheesecake and Tiramisu to create an incredibly rich and tasty Tiramisu Cheesecake! We literally joined the two ingredient lists together. Sitting on homemade lady fingers, the cheesecake itself is made from a blend of cream cheese, Mascarpone cheese, espresso made from Italian-imported beans, Kahlua and Meyer rum. We then top the cake with a Mascarpone whipped cream. The result is a cake rich in taste but not overpowering in any one flavor (we have a lot of flavors going on there!). If you love our Tiramisu cake, this one is a must-try!
Now available for orders: the sizes we offer are 6″ heart (about 4-5 servings), 8″ round (8-9 servings) and 10″ round (12-16 servings). Decorations around and on top of the cake may vary.
