My experience over eight years of going here is that the sandwiches are good, the pies are great, and the cakes are *awful.* We got pies to go for our wedding rehearsal dinner (a barbecue) and they were just unbelievable--big, sweet berries, flaky crust, everything you ever wanted in a pie. So a year or two later, I went there to get my husband's 39th birthday cake, a carrot cake. It was beautifully decorated, looked scrumptious--and was oily and tasteless. For some reason, they don't (or didn't, anyway) use cream cheese frosting on their carrot cakes (I mean, what other kind is there???). We ate a few bites of it and tossed the rest. Yet I can't totally hold it against them--it's a nice place to hang if you're at Green Lake. Just get your birthday cakes somewhere else.
