I love this place. I have been going to them since 1998. In 2005, moved to Germany. When living in Germany, I ordered cakes for our visits (baptisms, 25yr. anniversary party for parents). Living again in the area, and so thankful that they are still open. I have never had bad service, bad food, or any complaint. No place can please everyone--and when they do, someone will complain just because they want to ruin a perfect record for someone. Family just came from Germany to get married. There is no other place I would trust with such an important task besides Sweet Affair. It was beautiful and tasted fantastic!

After reading the reviews it seems to be case of not being able to please 100% of the people 100% of the time. I've been a customer of Sweet Affair for over 20 years and have always had fresh quality breads, pastries, sandwiches and soups. It should be obvious if they have been successful for that many years, they must be doing something right! It is a shame that a few people didn't enjoy the food, but as we all know those seem to be the people that love to complain. Thank you Sweet Affair for all the joy you have brought my family and friends.

Every time we go to sweet affair, we have some episode of poor customer service. This time, the self-serve water was empty. My wife asked if it could be refilled, and the employee said, "I'm busy with a customer now." I enjoy my sandwiches because of the good bread, but I'm over a sweet affair. There's a new kinder grill in the same complex and it's pretty good.

I have attempted to order items from this establishment many times and NEVER have they got the order right. I have ordered ahead of time and when I go to pick it up, the order has NEVER been right! The cakes in the counter are NOT fresh, they are disgustingly OLD and Stale. How can a bakery sell merchandise as fresh when it's days old. I have come into the bakery just to check and the exact same cakes are still in the exact same place in the counter, day after day. You would think if you ordered something it would be fresh -- fat chance, not at this bakery. The manager is rude, obnoxious and does NOT know how to give customer service. I called to check on the time the bakery closes and they recite an incorrect time. After traveling several miles, I walk up to the door to find it's locked, closed an hour before I was told the time they closed when I called.

I called the manager back, who by the way is rarely available, works odd hours and I told her my experience. Her reply was, "what do you want me to do about it?" I would suggest closing your doors, FOREVER if you can't handle business. I also now know why they aren't in Alamo anymore, not due to the fact that they didn't get their lease renewed, but the place was DISGUSTINGLY FILTHY!! It's amazing more people haven't experienced food poisoning. If you are smart, go to Danville Bakery, they have excellent customer service and they get the orders right!

It's pretty upsetting when you order something special for a special birthday or celebration, go to pick it up and A Sweet Affair acts stupid like you never called with an order. I have even driven down and personally placed an order only to go to pick it up and NADA, no order.

I have no clue how a place like this can stay in business....simply amazing.

This place is the best bakery around. There turkey sandwich is the best I have EVER had...it was loaded with cranberry sauce and avocado plus it came on fresh baked bread that was full of seeds. To top of the great sandwich I also had a creamcheese brownie that was the highlight of my week! If you have a chance RUN to this bakery its great.

While I found the sandwiches and the baked goods okay the rest of the visit to Sweet Affair was not. The place was busy and the service slow. I placed my order then waited close to 1/2 hour for my sandwich. The sandwich was good but not how I ordered it. By the time I got the sandwich it was too late to send it back as I had to go onto my doctor's appointment. Too bad because the bakery came highly recommended by my friend and I won't be going back.

I'm not a big baked goods fan but I had to get a birthday cake and the are close to where I live. I order the cake over the phone and when I came to pick it up they had no knowledge of the order. This was on the birthday. I had to go to Safeway instead.

I have been eating at the Sweet Affair Bakery for several years now. The sandwiches there are the best!! I can't pick a favotire because I love them all!! The cookies and other bake goods are also the best around!! I guess if I had to pick my favorite it would be their awesome chocolate chip cookies. If you haven't been to Sweet Affair you should go soon it is the best there is!!

We received sandwiches from this bakery which is branching out into the deli business? and found it to memorable. We, my co workers and staff, remember the bills from the hospital, the memory of being sick for 24 hours and the memory of missing an important meeting . We wouldn't even begin to tell you how bad this experience was until we spoke with the owner. He denied all possibilities of this occurring despite several warnings from the local health dept. While this happens rarely his response was so rude and without the proper concern, we wouldn't ever return.

The WC bakery is the best. When I lived in WC, I went everyday whether it be for coffee or muffins, pastries, or lunches. I even had them make a custom cake for my parents 25th wedding anniversary. I've been to the Sweet Affair Bakery several times and they make the best sandwiches! Very delicious. You'll love it! The cookies are to die for. Try the crab salad sandwich....yummm! It's pretty expensive but worth every penny!!! P.S. The place is rustic.

PROS: Yummy cookies!!
CONS:

The pastries at the Sweet Affair Bakery are awfully, awfully good ? they?re loaded with sugar and butter and fat, which makes them delicious. Delicious and rich, but not exceptional or original ? I?d drop by if I were in the area shopping, but I wouldn?t make a special trip just to visit the bakery.

PROS: Pretty good baked goods
CONS: Not outstanding

A Sweet Affair is located in the Ygnacio Shopping Center across from Heather Farms. They specialize in baking and these delicious sandwiches! They are always so good, We always order them when we have a staff meeting. If you get full very easily, I suggest you order half of a sandwich. They are not very expensive, and you can call in ahead and order, as not to wait in a long line!

I'm only reviewing the bakery here, which is the place for rich, sugary pastry when the occasion warrants it (24 hours a day for some people). Even run-of-the-mill things like bear claws are pretty fancy here. The testimony to the quality and taste is that if you get here after about 1 PM, FORGET IT! -- virtually all the baked goodies except bread are all gone.
