Living a mile from Sarasota's best bakery is both wonderful and terrifying. The love and attention to detail Jim puts into his baked goods is unparalleled (and with a welcoming smile to boot!). My and I love the key lime muffin, baklava, tuna melt on sourdough olive bread, and challah with raisins, but, honestly, anything you order from Jim's will blow you away. See More

Chef Jim custom-made a Princess Cake for my mother’s birthday and just knocked it out of the park. Not only was the cake beautiful but it is absolutely delicious! He was so nice to work with, too.

I had his new york style cheesecake about a year about...loved it! I have stopped in many times since hoping to get it again. Never left empty . BUT yesterday he had some again! Honestly s...o wonderful. Does not need fruit or anything but a fork and a smile. � Love this bakery. You rock Jim! See More

Stopped in this morning right when they opened. Ordered an egg and cheese on a croissant and a quiche with potatoes. Ate that while the baker/owner Brought out fresh baked cinnamon rolls and danishes.... Bought quite a bit to eat there and took Jim's word and took some fresh baked chocolate and pumpkin croissants home with us. Half way to our destination, we opened the box of croissants and the aroma was Amazing and we were ready to eat them all right there lol.

Loved this little visit we had today. So happy we were able to make it this time on our vacation. Can't wait to go back! Highly recommended !

Jim's Small Batch is the best! We love the chocolate croissants and the blueberry lemon curd croissants. Go for brunch, get pastries and then for savory things, the candied bacon blt, polish cowboy, o...r lox on toast are super good and the soup is good! Then get a batard to take home. See More

We got the candied bacon, egg and cheese on chef's choice bread (always say chef's choice. You won't regret it). It was the best sandwich I'd ever had. The cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting is ...the jam. My coffee was done perfectly. And to top it all off, chef came out and let us sample the chicken salad, which of course is to die for! Wished we could have come back for lunch! I'm around the area about twice a year. I will come here EVERY. TIME. See More

I have tried almost EVERYTHING at Jim's( maybe I have missed a biscotti or a cookie ) but really everything else. I had the pleasure of having a slice of his fresh pumpkin pie and I must say it has to...pped every other pumpkin pie I have ever sampled. It was PERFECTION!! Some of my other favorites are the caramelized upside down banana muffin, the blueberry muffin, the oatmeal cookie, the derby pie, the incredible Carmel apple bar and on and on!!! See More

This bakery café is awesome! From the moment you walk in you feel the vibe and you just know that you're in for a treat. Everything looks so good and the goodies that my wife and I got to try were del...icious. The croissant with the chocolate inside is insane and the cream cheese brownies are scrumptious as well. We drove down from St . Petersburg and we will definitely be coming back for more. Thanks for an awesome experience! Keep up the good work! See More

This was my first time here and I loved it! The staff was all smiles and friendly as can be! My brother is in town this week so it was a first time experience for the both of us, he ordered a blueberr...y muffin and fruit danish, I ordered a ham and cheese croissant and we both agree that they were divine! I am just mad at myself for not trying this place sooner and I will be returning very soon! See More
