Reviews

“I've also done brunch a couple of time, the quiche is quite good, and finding a table is usually easy to do.”
“Strawberry whipped cream cake, so tasty, not too sweet and amazing strawberry flavor.”
“My cake was neopilitan with strawberry and chocolate mousse filling and marzipan frosting!”
Pros
  • I'm glad I checked it out first and proctrastinator-me should be happy that 24 hours is all they needed so I could order some of these fine pastries...
  • Between 2 visits, I purchased some of their kolacky--very good cookies that are better than the local Polish deli where I usually buy them...
  • And slices of their strawberry creme cake--still as good as I remember, fresh strawberries and tasty lite whipped cream...
  • This is a place I really, really wanted to like based on all of the good things I had heard about it...
  • The small cafe area had quite a few people, which I thought might be a good sign...
Cons
  • It wasn't bad, but it was bright pink inside, which was a surprise...
  • I just had the most awful experience ever!
  • I can't believe how awful, nasty, and rude Clarissa was...
  • We had enough of her bad attitude and kindly asked for her name and told her how dissatisfied we were with her service...
  • I understand people have bad days but there is no excuse for her attitude...
  • It wasn't awful or anything, but our wedding colors were orange and teal, so the cake didn't match anything and clashed with our orange and teal cake topper...
Service & Staff
  • I have fond memories of their strawberry creme cake and birthday parties and based on how fast orders were leaving during my last visits, I'd say those cakes are still pretty popular...
  • The strawberry mousse cake is divine, and I ate one of their mini pound cakes in a sitting for breakfast one morning...
  • One of these days (post hibernation), I'll mosey on down here and stay for coffee service or some food...
  • Looking over 5 minutes later for a reaction, I could clearly see a cleaned plate in front of him...
  • I settled in for a late lunch before Christmas...
Food & Drinks
  • They have free coffee - you have to buy it at Lutz - and a free parking lot...
  • as soon as you walk it everything looks delicious I remember it being so much better years ago, now the cake are not even close to anything it was before, I order a chocolate layer cake , the cake wasn't moist the icing came off in chunks didnt even blend in together,,, Two slices of cake 10 bucks are u kidding me?
  • There is a nice little cafe' area where one could sit and have their pastryand some coffee if that is your thing, For the record, coffee is not my thing,but bring on the hot chocolate!
  • Really, Lutz's has some lovely baked items, cookies, breads, cakes,pastries by the slice, and I saw a delicious looking case of chocolates...
  • I am sitting here right now enjoying a delicious cappuccino that was only $2,75...
  • It's about taste...
  • We drove to Lutz's today for the first time in years and had a wonderful cup of coffee and an assortment of heavenly desserts...
Atmosphere
  • There is classical music playing and it is nice to hear while I write my research paper...
  • Prior to coming in, my sister (the mother of the birthday boy) called and spoke to the cake decorator and explained to her what she wanted...
  • My sister tells her about the conversation she had with the cake decorator earlier in the day and Clarissa tried to discredit that conversation...
  • We will be going back for more of that wonderful coffee, friendly service, relaxed atmosphere, and some pastries...
Prices
  • Groupon is only asking me for $5,50 for $10,00 worth of delectabletreats from Lutz's, well, this was just too good an offer to pass up!
  • You figure when you pay $15,00 for a hunk of pastry, this thing better be jumping off the plate...
  • I also agree with the other WhiteFinderers that it would be helpful if the bakery put the price per lbs or per cookie/cake next to the item...
  • I think for the amount we paid it wasn't exactly worth it...
Summary
  • There was nothing to recommend...
  • I highly recommend this cafe and will definitely return!
  • Everything was great, but ...
  • There were definitely parts that made me feel warm and fuzzy, but overall I was not overly impressed...
  • We waited 10 minutes at a table before we finally got up to help ourselves to menus, and then were acknowledged...
