Kelly's Bakery Toralfa bars -  5 stars 

I practically grew up on the pastries in this bakeshop. Back in my school age years, I would always order their ganache cakes. They're sinfully delicious. 

As I was growing up, my tastebuds evolve into liking different tastes and nowadays, I only really order their Toralfa cookies. Whenever I buy it, I buy in bulk so I can stock up for a few days without having to go on a triip to the store again. Not a single day go by without me having this cookie. To me it's just perfect! I love Kelly's Bakery!

A Review of Kelly's French Bakery - 5 stars

This French bakery is a favorite among us locals. Their signature bread rolls and loaves are unique and one-of-a-kind. On top of that, they are freshly baked everyday and served hot off the oven.

My son brings sandwich to school everyday and I only use their Francese loaf. He just loves it. For myself, I always go for their Jalapeno Cheddar. I adore the spicy twist to the cheesy loaf.
