Patticakes is the place to go for any baked good you desire! Owners Mike and Phyllis are so friendly and make you feel like family! Their cakes are not just beautiful, but delicious, and their coffee is wonderful. We love to sit on the patio with our pup, and Mike always comes out with a treat to all the doggie... More

A long-time Altadena neighborhood staple, Patticakes is a family-owned bakery with a well-merited reputation for producing great-tasting cakes. It is located on the northeast corner of Allen and New York in Altadena. I find their pastries to be just ok, but their chocolate cakes are absolutely fabulous -- especially the chocolate raspberry and the white chocolate mousse cakes! Even the... More

We love this little spot! Every time I go there, it is full of neighborhood regulars sharing the latest news from around the neighborhood. The coffee is tasty and reasonable. The pastries are good, albeit nothing fancy. It's a warm, homey vibe.

I needed a cake at the last minute. Found this was close by. What a great find!! The owner was great to chat with. He was very helpful in finding a cake that met a variety of dietary needs.. no nuts, so seeds, etc. I bought a chocolate cake which was amazing!!! I can't wait to try another flavor!! I... More

This is a bakery with wonderful desserts. I've always picked up a few to go, and eaten them at home with cold milk. Especially the black cherry tart is delicious and the almond croissant, and of course the carrot muffin with cream cheese on top. All items fairly priced and a great treat.

Patticakes is located less than a five-minute drive from my home, and is certainly my nearest, most convenient breakfast/snack place. So why is it that in the 15 years I've lived in Altadena, driving past Patticakes practically daily, I've stopped here less than a half-dozen times? Today's breakfast was a "baker's surprise" pastry and a small latte, at $6.50 reasonably... More

I wanted so much to love this place. Having a great place to walk for coffee and a desert would be a real treat. We went for cookies and they were just... well... OK. Nothing special and definitely not as good as something I could bake at home. I'm not a cake person so maybe that is where they shine... More
