My favorite bakery in the city! They produce high quality cakes with many distinctive flavors that are not too sweet and are to perfection! They have fruit mousse cakes, chocolate cakes, rum cakes, fruit whipped cakes, and many more! They have an online system that allows you to place an order online, which normally requires at least two days to make. You can specify the date and time needed for pick up. In case you want to try the cakes, they have small versions of the cakes available for $3-4 each. It is a perfect size to have to try out but also a nice snack for lunch. They also have other pastries available if you want to try: cookies, tarts, and many more. Parking is available but most are metered spots. Street parking is normally available 2-4 blocks down from clement but can be sparse on weekends and late during weekdays. A must try! You can always enjoy your treats inside, they have 3 tables there :)

I heard so many good things about Schubert's Bakery, so I made a specific trip to Clement Street to find out what all the hype was about. Schubert's Bakery is located between 6th and 7th Avenue, with a good number of street parking. There are a various number of restaurants and stores around the bakery, so parking can get tough if you come during a busy time. I had already poured through the many pictures of the various cakes from Schubert's, so I came with the intention of trying the popular Swedish Princess Cake and the Fruit Tart. Because the cakes look so pretty in the photos, I had expected the bakery to be just as fancy. I was actually a bit surprised at how small and low-key the bakery really is. Walking in, if I didn't know how popular Schubert's Bakery is, I probably wouldn't have expected too much from the store. The bakery in itself is quite old, with a few tables inside the restaurant, signs on the wall that explain the popular menu items, and big refrigerator display cases of cakes and other treats. I think I expected more of a Porto's or Tartine's type bakery, but there is something pretty comforting and unique about how low key everything is - you know they put a lot of time and effort into their food. I really wanted to try the fruit tart, but sadly they were all out. I only was able to try a slice of the Princess Cake, which set me back about $4-$5. Kind of pricey for a simple slice of cake. It was put into a plain box, and I was quickly on my way. The cake in itself is quite fancy looking. There are layers of sponge cake with raspberry and custard filling. The cake itself is wrapped in marzipan with simple decorations adorned on top. If you're gentle enough, you can pull the marzipan layer off of the cake. Eating the marzipan, sponge cake, and the fillings altogether allow you to get a complete taste of the cake. I personally really enjoyed the marzipan because it has a unique almond flavor. The cake is light and springy and because the custard and raspberry fillings aren't too tart or sweet, they provide the perfect complement to the cake and marzipan. It's definitely a delicious cake, but I feel that even one slice was too much for me and I had to eat it in several visits. I can only imagine eating the whole cake! tl;dr - Swedish Princess Cake was pretty good and worth a try if you're in the area, but it's not something I would go out of my way for. It's a bit pricey and a little on the heavy side. I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it, but I would probably return to Schubert's to try out the fruit tart next time or one of the other various cakes.

Swedish Princess. That's all I seriously need to say! Get it! All their cakes are so beautiful and delicious looking! The Swedish Princess wasn't like the typical heavy and rich American style cake. This was is really light and fluffy with just the right flavor of raspberry to it. I never eat the frosting on a cake, but the cheese mixture they use for their frosting was just too delicious to pass up! I haven't had any problems finding parking on the street. Their service was prompt and cordial. I had reserved a cake for my mom's 70th birthday about 4 days prior and scheduled to pick it up at 4pm on a Sunday and they even gave me a call to remind me to pick it up when I was running a bit late. I vow to come here....again....and again!

You know when it's a legit celebration when you see the Schubert's box. ALL of their cakes are really good (the ones I've tried so far).. they're always moist and just the right amount of sweetness - a thorough variety of cakes!!! I typically judge quality of a bakery based on their whipped cream - this place does it right: fluffy, subtly sweet and light. I recommend all of their cakes - high quality at fair prices - about $29 for an 8' cake, not bad at all. (My personal favorites thus far are the opera cake and St. Honore cake :)

Schubert's is one of the few bakeries I trust inside the city to make great cakes. All their cakes are beautifully designed and taste amazing, not too sweet, but not too delicate. Definitely get the Princess Cake if you're having trouble picking, but the mocha chocolate and tiramisu cakes are also delicious!

Got Current Mousse. Disappointing. The cake was flavorless, the mousse part was ok but without good cake to go with it the thing just tasted like a clump of sour. Tried the rugula too, terrible. Way overrated. Try Cocola in redwood city instead, their pineapple twists are awesome.

So much goodness. Everything is delicious and the cakes are so pretty. I highly recommend everything, the chocolate mousse cakes are my favorites. The strawberry shortcake is awesome too.
