The menu has a wide variety from pizza to fish tacos which is perfect for a traveling family. The sauce in the fish tacos was so good. The kids liked the chicken strips.

The graduation sheet-cake ordered for a graduation party was beautifully decorated in a garden theme, executed by the head baker with minimal instructions. Excellent carrot cake. I will definitely come back for future cake orders!
