You know this bakery is a notch above the others because some of the cookies are made with almond paste, not just beaten up eggwhites. Everything is good, from the eclairs to the brownies to the carrot cake. Cookies can be purchased by the dozen or individually. Here's a tip: If you've got a bunch of kids, let them each pick out a cookie or 2. That way, everyone gets their own treat in their own little bag and you haven't spent a fortune.
Everything is good in the deli, too, from the corned beef to the salads, all displayed in front of you so that you can see what you're choosing. Be warned--this food is rich.
At times, the Katella Deli and Bakery can get busy. Parking can be a problem, but people just drive around until they find a spot.
