Rum cakes. One you try their rum cake you never be able to enjoy one from any other bakery ever again! My family has been buying rum cakes, chocolate rum cakes (mmmmmm!), and St. Honore cakes for all our special occasions, (Weddings, anniversaries, funerals, birthdays, etc.) for over 20 years, and have never been disappointed. For every occasion I contemplate going somewhere else, trying something new, but thankfully always come back to my senses! The prices are great also. I got a wedding cake for a 50th aniversary, 3 tiers, for $75.00. The staff at the mission street shop can be rather short and impatient with you, but one taste of a napoleon on the way home in the car, (so you dont eat the cake before you get there) will erase all that.
I've only tried the cheesecake from this bakery, but plan on going back to try their other cakes. The cheesecake was decorated very nicely with strawberries, a chocolate lattice, and a slight layer of whipped cream on top. The crust seemed to have a spice similar to nutmeg. A fine cake at a very affordable price.
[Edited 02-12-08: Impossible to get any service over the phone. Why do they bother answering the phone if they just answer and put the customer on hold. Costco food department has better service.]
