My favorite bakery in the city. Talk about love in the cooking! Great flavors,freshness and a warm atmosphere. Worth the thousand mile drive. We are sure to stop in for lunch or brunch and a sweet any time we're in town.

Ok, the pasteries are delish, but the surly service makes it not worth the trip. And the owner will come out and charm her "regulars", and walk right by anyone else. I really try to patronize local, entreprenurial businesses, but I've given Angel Food enough chances. There are enough other places to get great bakery treats where I can feel welcomed as a customer, instead of getting attitude. Pass it by.

This bakery is cheery from head to toe. From the minute you walk in the retro feel transports you back to simpler days when all you had to worry about was whether to have a cupcake or a lemon bar. That dilemma still exists here because their baked goods are TO DIE FOR. My personal favorites are the Airstream (homemade Twinkie), Whoopie Pie and Thin Mints. Don't forget lunch or brunch! Both are excellent and offer vegetarian options. Once your tummy is filled to the brim the staff adds a touch more sugar and sweetness to put you over the top (they're SO nice)! You can tell this is a Ravenswood favorite because they have many "regulars" that come through the door. Stop in and you'll know why!

My favorite weekend stop to sample a few baked goodies with my boyfriend. Brunch menu has too many good choices; we inevitably give in and go for baked goods. Seats are always full. Food first: The malted milk ball cupcake is amazing. Lemon bar is just right. Rice pudding is excellent. I've tried at least half a dozen others. Only surprise was the brownie: I've gotten used to the chewiness and sweetness of the boxed DIY versions. But as a heavy cake, it's great - not cloyingly sweet. If you're rushing to work, grab a commuter sandwich - sweet, hearty, tangy, filling. Had me at the grocery store picking up similar ingredients for a home version, but their bread was far better. Brioche, mmmm... and sometimes they'll sell the day-olds for a dollar. The coffee is fine, too! Don't be afraid to sample one of the harder-to-find bottled teas from the cooler, either. Beware: when picking a foursome to share over coffee, mix the sweet and less-sweet, or you'll be falling over by the end. :) Service is always cheerful from the top to bottom. The to-go boxes are pretty and keep our delicacies from smearing everywhere. Seeing the owner bring homemade graham crackers to soothe one couples' baby made a good impression. Value: You definitely get your money's worth. Atmosphere: as sweet as the desserts. A collection of vintage easy-bake ovens, pale blues and greens on the walls, desserts served on cheerful plates, pretty signage, everything says "fun and light". As an architect, I love the buildout of this space. Use of simple (and cleverly not-expensive) design moves gets my admiration.
