I have been going to Sunrise Bakery for well over 30 years. I remember when it was next door to Food Villa. Now that exact location is Sports Authority and the bakery has moved over to its present location.

When you went to Sunrise, you were guaranteed a fresh item baked that same day. Now I find that some items will taste like they are a day old, maybe older. You cannot tell if the item is fresh or not until you bite into the food. In the old days, if Sunrise would sell something that was not fresh, they would mark the item and lower the price. The times I have been in Sunrise lately, I have not seen this. I have bought cupcakes and danish where I could tell that they were not fresh. I also paid the full price.

I use to love buying the cinnamon bread with the glaze frosting from Sunrise. The last two loafs that I have purchased did not seem fresh and again paid the same price as if they were baked that day.

I will only go to Sunrise now if I order something, as I then know it was fresh. If I go by Sunrise and note that they have marked items to show that they are not freshly baked and the pricing has been lowered, I will consider purchasing the item. But as far as going into Sunrise just to purchase fresh items when I am the area, I am reluctant to do that now??

Pros: Can order specialty items; when items are fresh, they are good

Cons: Sometimes items are not fresh; some items are overpriced.

My mother always shopped and bought our cakes from Sunrise and I started to as well until several years ago I had them do a Seasme Street themed cake for my daughter's 1st b-day- That's were it went downhill. The decor was horrible and I was so upset that I had to pay such a high amount for something that came out so badly. The taste of the cakes themselves are very good but the prices are high when you can now go to Albertsons and Costco and get more for less. Such a shame because they have been around for a long time - I may go back someday but haven't found a reason to yet.

I've visited the Sunrise Bakery a few years ago, and I bought a small round cake. It was delicious, but I felt it was overpriced.

I recently visited again to buy some cookies and a cupcake for my son. Their products did not seem freshly baked. It looked like they left everything overnight in the display cases to resell at full price the next day.

I suffer from an addiction to tres leches cake. I was therefore delighted to find that this bakery serves 3 delicious varieties: mocha, vanilla w/ cherry filling and vodka(?) I believe I may have misunderstood that last one, but at any rate, whatever it is, it's very good. Have tried their other types of cakes and everything is fresh and tasty. I've been going there a couple of times a week for the past month and have always found the staff to be helpful and friendly.

Sunrise Bakery has recently switched ownership and I have noticed that the quality of the cakes has gone downhill. I ordered a white cake with custard filling for my husband's birthday. I placed my order a week in advanced and requested that they put some sort of design other than flowers and his name on the icing. When I went to pick up the cake, a friendly clerk pulled out the box and showed it to me before sealing it shut. The name and design was perfect and I thought everything was fine until I took the cake home to slice after dinner. Instead of custard filling, plain white icing was used for the filling. Too late to take the cake back I called the next morning to complain was brushed off since I did not immediately take back the cake. I will not be ordering anymore cakes from this Bakery.

PROS: Reasonable prices
CONS: Not willing to help when they make a mistake
