      I like the Princess cake - usually moist and always a winner when we serve it. Also, the fruit tart is good. I use the Greenbrae branch.

          Funny, that's what I was going to say. Haven't been there in a long, long time..but that's what they're known for, well one of the things.

        I'm with manda, the St. Honore is my favorite cake from V.P.

        Their Princess cake, with its covering of green marzipan is also quite good.

          The Victoria Pastry shop owners recently took over the ownership of Stella Pastry on Columbus and are promising to continue baking Stella's traditional Sacrapantina, which is by far my favorite cake.

          St Honore, all the way! It is filled spongy cake and creamy custardy goodness, with a flaky crust on the bottom and topped off with CREAM PUFFS and cherries. Spectacular!
