Taste good chicken that is offered at Main Street Bakery. In accordance with the guests' opinions, waiters offer perfectly cooked cupcakes here. The positive aspect of this place is that the staff is creative. If you want to experience fine service, you should visit this spot. The terrific decor is a big plus. But visitors rated Main Street Bakery on Yelp and the score is below average.

I placed a cake order for my daughters 21st Birthday. I spoke to Luz on a Wednesday & left deposit, with agreement I would send pic of cake design wanted via email since I had viewed some items online of cakes. Luz offered me her business card & I told her no worries I'd get the email online. The following day I sent a pic of cake via email & once again spoke verbally to Liz, she indicated that she would be able to design the cake. I told her that I was a bit picky & I asked again if she was able to design cake & she stated "Yes". When I got to the bakery the following Monday, the girl at the register said Luz had indicated I had a balance, I knew I did. I paid and the girl handed me the cake. I stated are you going to show me what cake looks like? She opened the Top flap of box and the cake was to my surprise not what I had asked for. The flower was upright opposed to laying sideways, the fondant did not look smooth on top. There was no gold ring design around the cake nor an attempt to put gold leaves on the cake. I stated to the girl, the cake looked off and I was unhappy. She stated Luz was coming to the store shortly and I could share with her my thoughts. When Luz arrived she looked rushed & agitated, I'm certain someone told her about her unhappy customer, me. I started sharing with her the flaws of cake, she stated it's like someone trying to copy Michael Angelos work. Luz's tone was snotty, arrogant and Unprofessional. I told her i understood she wasn't Michael Angelo but she should have shared cake would not look the way I wished, she stated her website has disclaimer. I stated she should have told me verbally she couldn't copy near what the pic showed since I had spoken to her Twice. She proceeded to open her register and pulled a $100 bill. I actually paid $125. I said if you want to go that route it's rude, I had my daughters guests arriving for the party and without a cake, what was I to do. The cake looked a bit ok with the gold leaves around the plain pink gaudy flower, I got a bit happy and felt somewhat satisfied but not. I left the store knowing the cake was not what I wanted, again remember the girl including Luz never showed me the full cake, I knew I was probably being a pain so I didn't want to ask for more. When I got home and opened the rest of the box, well, the cake was sliding. I emailed Luz and after 24hrs have yet to hear from her. I know my $125 are meaningless to her, it's not about the money, it's the memory. That cake was the most expensive mess I've ever paid for. Take a look at the pictures, this is what I got.  A lobsided cake, a lifeless flower, with yellow instead of gold trim. Also, Luz can post she is not responsible for transportation and what happens to cake, go ahead post your defense you have the right and blame me as you do others who post. Your employees and you lack old fashioned business skills, that is try your best to satisfy customers.  My money is meaningless by the stunt you pulled opening your cash drawer and attempting to hand my money back to shut me up. I wonder if you have kids, would you be that selfish and take the money instead of getting your daughter or son a cake? I'm not that type of person, however I am the type of person that will share the negatives so that they don't WASTE their TIME or MONEY. This place really deserves no stars.
Use to get breakfast burrito before walking across for school. There is a wide variety of dessert choices. I love the cookies. They always have so many flavors of cake pops. Ive been coming here since high school. Everyone is pretty friendly. We always order here for cake pops and sugar cookies for family parties.
I am over the top happy with my choice of going with Main Street Bakery/Catering for my daughter's Sweet 16 this past weekend. The food was DELICIOUS and the service was OUTSTANDING. The owner of the venue we rented, Wave St Studios (my review will be posted on their yelp listing), was also so impressed, the owner told me he is putting them on his preferred vendor list. We had a buffet dinner to serve 100 people. Luz and her team brought everything in and set up so quickly! We had the beef birria (outstanding!) and the chicken fajitas, two different kinds of salads, beans, rice and also they set up a little chips/salsa bar. They brought in iced water/iced tea, and coffee (for us older folks) and then even took over for me and cut and served birthday cake! Seriously, this team made the experience so much more pleasurable for me because I didn't have to worry about anything.   Guests were so impressed and that tells me a lot! The other thing I have to say is that they're incredibly warm and friendly, and that added to an atmosphere of warmth and celebration. That stuff really matters! To Luz and her team, thank you so much for making this event so special, for the absolutely delicious food and for your warmth and kindness. I will always remember this and am already planning on coming back to Main Street Bakery & Catering when I plan her graduation party.
