fruit and custard pie best anywhere – get their custard and fruit pies. best i've had. get there earlier, or they may already be all gone.
Good green onion roll, sponge cakes – If you prefer the less sweet Chinese sponge cakes, this is probably the best bakery in the Sunset district for that. I think they make the best green onion/ham rolls in the area. The filling is savory and has plenty of ham & green onions compared to other bakeries who offer a mere sprinkling of meat/onions. I like their strawberry sponge cake and they're opened Thanksgiving Day so you can order their various pies - pumpkin, custard, orange, apple, etc, ahead of time for pick up. The most expensive pie is a mere $8.50. Their hot dog buns, BBQ pork buns and cocktail buns aren't bad either. That, plus a cup of Starbucks (block away) makes for a nice Sunday AM treat. Weekdays, the sm eating area is filled w/little old Asian men or contractors having breakfast before going off to work or activities. On weekends, it's little old ladies who convene there to socialize w/coffee and pastries. The bakery here is better than the one down the street on the opposite corner.
Great Prices and Taste Wonderful! – I had my wedding cake made fresh here. I had so many compliments about our strawberry cake I highly recommend trying this place. My nephew's baby shower cake was just as good and everyone loved it. Very Spongy Soft Cake with fresh fruits and light and creamy frosting.
A good wedding cake – I ordered my wedding cake here in 2004. What a value! I paid less than $250 for 5 tiers (mocha, fixed fruits and lemon custard) and they delivered on time! It is your typical chinese sponge cake, but it tasted great and looked good too.
Editorial Review – Chinese bakery supplies traditional sweet and savory buns as well as desserts, like cupcakes and fruit tarts, to the Inner Sunset.
Very good sponge cake here. – Finding a light but resiliant sponge cake has been difficult, but Sunset Bakery offers a very good version affordably. Their strawberry layer cake serves extremely well at any party. Other food items vary in quality, but most are decent.
