Delicious LeLe Cake Cafe

Cappuccino at LeLe Cake CafeWe are fortunate to have LeLe Cake Cafe right in our neighborhood!

LeLe Cake Cafe ambiance and offerings

I’ve been to LeLe twice now, both times enjoying some sort of coffee drink. They were delicious. The photo at the right is from last Sunday, when I had a cappuccino.

The interior is light, stylish, clean, and welcoming. Fresh flowers add a nice touch and are another reminder that this is a boutique shop and not just another chain outlet. The patio area provides a good number of shaded seats. It was uncrowded and very pleasant.

It’s impossible to miss the beautiful pastry temptations or to miss the menu offerings. At some point we’ll go for breakfast or lunch – the food looks amazing.

Service

The staff gets quite busy, but as soon as possible I’ve been greeted and my order taken. Since we wanted to sit outside, I asked if we needed to wait indoors for our coffee drinks or if they’d bring them to us. They kindly did bring our coffee drinks to us.

Location, contact info, and website for LeLe Cake Cafe

You’ll find LeLe at the Walgreen’s Shopping Center at the corner of Blossom Hill Road and Harwood Road, Los Gatos. They are in the space previously occupied by Subway. Rumor has it that they are going to expand into the adjacent suite, too, which would be wonderful. I’m happy that they are successful in this location!

Los Gatos Pizza has been remodeled

If you haven’t been to our neighborhood pizzeria, Los Gatos Pizza, the new remodel is a great reason to pop by (rather than get it by delivery)!

They’ve added a lot more flat screen TVs, improved the lighting and seating and de-cluttered the walls, making the restaurant more upscale feeling.

Remaining are, of course, the salad bar, the pool table and a few games.  The pizza is still the best around!
