Everything at this bakery is outstanding Various kinds of cupcakes, danish, cakes, bread and cookies. The signature cookie- my personal favorite / "Brambles" A wonderful filled cookie, a blend of berries jam, sprinkled with sugar . They are addictive!

Many of the cookies here are what I call "white bread" but I give Sugar 5 stars for their almond macaroons. They have this one variety that's lemon frosted and oozing with such almondy goodness that it will make you cry. The mouthfeel of the...More
