I don't know how Sweetcakes isn't ranked higher. There seems to be a strong ice-cream bias in the reviews. I love ice-cream as much as the next person, but most of the ice-cream places are closed from late fall through early spring. Also, there are some times when ice cream simply is not appropriate. Besides, comparing ice cream with baked goods is quite like comparing apples to oranges.
For my money, Sweet Cakes is the best bakery in town. If you like chocolate, and who doesn't?, try the lava cake. It's an out-of-body experience. Also, although not always available, Sweet Cakes makes excellent European-style fruit tarts. Although not exactly dessert fare, the scones and muffins are the best breakfast cakes around.
Sweet Cakes also has a small-but-excellent menu of simple breakfast and lunch meals. These include bagels with various spreads, some egg dishes, sandwiches, soups, etc. They're all very good for what they are and prices are reasonable, especially given the quality.
The place is small, so seating and staff are limited. This sometimes results in a wait for your order to be taken. But I've been going there for years and never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be served.
Try it. You'll be glad you did.
