Reviews by the General Public

decadence sans gluten
Reviewer: chris from Santa Barbara, CA
Having been tempted by previous samples, we stopped by for coffee and cake. The cappuccinos were fine (though it's getting harder and harder to find a not-OK one). Both the carrot and coconut cakes were scrumptious. The decorating was artful, not to mention generous slices. This does not taste like gluten-free baking. While Jane's coconut cake edges out Lilac's a bit for both taste and texture, it's not gluten-free or nearly as spectacular looking. Besides being a somewhat expensive snack, the other price of the cake's beauty was an icing overload. We couldn't handle all the sweetness and regretfully left some on the plates. Next time, just one slice to share. And there will be a next time. Soon.

Amazing cakes

Ordered the Princess Torte for my Mom's 70th Bday. Cake was beautiful, like a work of art. The staff was great at boxing it up so that I wouldn't smash any of the roses while I travleled with it. On top of that the cake was delicious, everyone at the party commented on how spectacular it was. This bakery (gluten free too!) is a fantastic addition to Santa Barbara. Thank you Gillian!

Epic Epic Epic. Would give 10 stars if I could.

Took my girlfriend and our five.five year old boy for a rainy Saturday afternoon cake outing, and it was an epic adventure. Two slices of cake - Princess Torte and Chocolate Sea Salt Carmel - a cupcake, a latte, and a pitcher of hot cocoa, and evvvverything was impossibly delicious. Easily one of the best desert experience I have ever had, and I've tried to have a lot. The restaurant itself is equally impressive, both how they designed it, really really nice inside, and how they run it, super dialed staff. Absolutely stoked they are open on State St, and definitely plan to return again and again. Huge thanks to all for making our Saturday so so so fun. - AB in SB

Great Gluten Free Bakery!
Reviewer: Amy from Santa Barbara, CA
I stopped by to pick up a treat for my mom, who is gluten free. Over the years I've had a lot of terrible gluten free pastries, but this was definitely not in that category. I picked up a slice of the lemon raspberry cake and it was moist and incredibly flavorful. I took it with me on a 3 hour drive and it survived with minimal damage. I highly recommend this patisserie, whether you are gluten free or not!
