Procrastinating as usual, I called Avalon the morning of my friend's birthday hoping they could come up with something. No problem at Avalon -- they whipped up an awesome assortment of scones, cookies and muffins, very reasonably priced, were able to deliver it around lunchtime (essential for me since I live in New York!), and were super friendly throughout. My friend was thrilled, shared the sweets with her officemates, and everyone had a lovely afternoon. Oh, and she raved about the goodies -- quite tasty. Thanks Avalon!
Pros: friendly service, tasty treats
