I am astonished at all the negativity in this forum. I think this is the best bakery I have ever patronized. Everything is excellent. The least outstanding item I have obtained there is a fruit cream pie. Nothing wrong with it: less favored by me- I think they contain too much stabilized cream. The cakes are astonishingly good, and their other bakery items include French pastries of all kinds, (I think budget priced - most of them will serve at least two), strudels, muffins, croissants, fruit bars, cookies. The most unhappy situation I have seen there is the line of customers that run outside the store on big holiday eves, especially when I am at the end of the line. On those days extra help is hired and the line moves fast. Offhand, I'd guess the unhappy brides were prima donnas, for the attitude you get is what you project. I have never met a rude or careless salesperson at H&H; au contraire, all have been very courteous and helpful.

I am in the process of finalizing some plans for an early 2010 wedding when I called Han's & Harry's because they have nice sized 7" cakes that I would like to use as individual centerpieces for my tables. When I called, the girl who answered knew nothing about prices or types of cake. When I asked if I could sample some of the flavors she said that they make 3 types that are sold in single pieces that would give me an idea. When I mentioned it was for a wedding she said that they do tastings but had no idea when they are scheduled. She said that she was told to have everyone call back in January to speak with Charlotte who was much too busy with Christmas baking to call anyone back. Needless to say, I would be nervous about follow through if I did order my cakes from them. I will be taking my business elsewhere.

We are getting married on a pretty popular day in the fall and have planned for that by booking all our services way in advance. We tried to book a July tasting date with this bakery in May but the woman who answered the phone told us to call back closer to July because she had forgotten her appt book and didn't want to schedule so far in advance. I called today and guess what-they are booked on our day! Oh well, too bad for them we will take our business elsewhere...there's no shortage of good bakeries in town and if they are this unorganized I wouldn't trust them with my wedding cake anyway!

Then lets all make a resolution to change out eating habit.lol

Approximately one month before our wedding we contacted Hans & Harry about a design we wanted created for our cake. Before we met with them we faxed over a copy of the design and talked to them on the phone. Their response - "Absolutely we can do this cake for you". Great! So we drove down to Bonita, met with Charlotte, showed her again the design, did a tasting and pointed to another cake in their case that was of similar height. While the cake was "ok" Charlotte was pleasant and they were willing to build our cake that was basically a (simple) 3 layer fondant covered cake with tall-elongated layers. Not having much time to shop the competition we agreed to let them bake our wedding cake. All fine and good to this point. Two days before the wedding I called to confirm the time of delivery and (because we were hanging a light over the cake) asked about the height of each layer. Charlotte was much less pleasant this time around. In fact it was as if I was somehow disturbing her by asking these questions. After several minutes on hold she came back on the line and said - "The layers will be five inches tall". I immediately thought she must have gotten us mixed up with someone else and said - "there must be a mistake" and reminded her about our design and our meeting. She immediately said - "No, there is no mistake - this is what we are going to make for you. If you don't like it we will refund your money." I reminded her again about meeting with her, the design she had in the file and our concern that our cake would not be as designed but only 15" tall. She said, "Well, the baker doesn't want to make your cake". I was floored. It was three days before the wedding and the baker didn't want to bake our agreed upon design? I asked Charlotte - "Is this about money because if it is let me know and (while I would not be happy about it) I'd see what we could negotiate". She said, "No she had already talked with Hans and the baker and the only thing they would do is refund our money if we were not happy"! (Remember this is 3 days before the wedding!!!) She also said - "If you'd like, why don't you come in and see the cake as it is already baked! For more of this review go to google.com reviews...

Well, what can I say? Hans and Harry's is the best that San Diego has to offer. My wedding cake was exceptional and the flavors they offered were outstanding. Charlotte at the bakery sat with us...all nervous and all and helped us pick out the perfect ending to a beautiful day...our 5 tiered cake. It had 5 flavors and we received 2 sheet cakes to feed all of our guests. They are a hidden treasure in the South Bay

You have to try their fruit strudel - people used to bring it into work all the time and I loved it! I finally took my mom to go get one and she balked at the price (about $20) but once she tasted it, she was hooked and it served more than we expected. When I was there I couldn't believe all the different baked goods they have and how cheap they were. I love the cinnamon rolls and they are less than $2 each!!

PROS: Yummy baked goods at very good prices
CONS: strudel is a little pricey but worth it

This bakery is the best in South Bay. The cakes are delicious and they make a pastry out of strawberies, peaches, kiwis, etc. that is great for any brunch or office party. The bakery is not cheap but the extra dough is worth it (pun intended.)

PROS: Great taste
CONS: Expensive
