Big Joy Family Bakery

Carefully wrapped and organized.


The kabocha cheese tart that we really wanted.


Sample: banana pound cake.

BLAT sandwich.

Turkey avocado sandwich.

They give you sugar syrup for your iced coffee. 
So thoughtful!

The pumpkin soup needed salt and
could do without the dried parsley.

  • It's kind of like heaven.  Peaceful, calming, and neat, where it feels like you're being carefully taken care of.  But not in an overbearing way.  And it smells like delicious baking.
  • A lady came in, stopped, breathed in deeply, and said, "Oh, that's not right."
  • It took about 20 minutes to get our food, so don't come here when you're in a hurry.
  • I love the almond meringue.  It's crunchy, buttery, and light.  Yum.  (Miko)
  • Everyone is wearing cute aprons.  The cashier's said "I Bake with Love."
  • The sandwiches aren't particularly outstanding, but the experience is calming and reassuring.  If you're stressed, bring a book and come hang out here.
  • They are usually playing lovely classical music. 
  • Their cafe au lait is outstanding.
