Eastside best fruit cake
E. B. Snodgrass
I have stopped in twice and found the selection large even in later in the day. Large selection of cookies, cakes and other goodies. Service quick and friendly. Tables both inside and out so you can enjoy your treats. Price very far for the quality. Wished I lived closer but will always stop when I am over on this side of metro Detroit. More...
Wonderful bakery with European flare. Always delivers.
They offer a great variety of delicious food. I like eating here. Staff members are always friendly, rates are reasonable and the spot is always well organised.
Great little bakery and pasterie!! They have a small outside umbrella area and an area inside for those who like to sit and chat over a hot chocolate and pastry. They have a good selection of cookies, cakes, pastries. More...
Pastries are excellent. The girls behind the counter are very helpful. Love shopping here.
What can you say but great pastries. Excellent service.
This is the absolute best pastry shop/bakery in the Detroit area. From the cakes to the breakfast pastries, everything here is top notch. The selection is huge and the staff are very friendly and courteous. This is where you go when you want to wow your guests with a cake. They're one of a kind! More...
Good stuff pricey
our white wedding cake with strawberry mousse and butter cream frosting was just delicious. It was so classic and beautiful to look at as well! Great Job Jimmy. Lots of thanks!
Overload on great pastry
Has excellent pastries. Top of the line.
Had them do our wedding cake. . Best cake ever 10/10. Very happy to have them do our cake!
Amazing Lobster Tail pastry (multiple thin crispy layers of pastry with Bavarian cream) and much more.
I love their cookies!!!!
This place is amazing. I have never had anything that I would not like. I love their almond coffee cake it is sooo good. Highly recommend this bakery
Delicious pastry! Creme Burlay awesome. Cookies,cakes, homemade soups, rolls, tarts. Everything fresh made. Treat yourself and fall in love with European Pastry. Yum!
Lobster tail pastries
Had a great experience working with Josef’s for our wedding! Cake was absolutely delicious and our guests loved the subtle touch of Swiss dots. Thank you!
I LOVE love love this place. I drive 2 hours to make a purchase. ❤️
Still licking my fingers..
Best pastries and canolis on the east side
I mean come on! Did you read the name? But seriously this place has some good stuff. I really come for the pizza and meat rolls. Pizza sauce is just amazing! Idk how they make it, they've got like 4 diff little pizza you can pick. The rolls are great for snacking. Fresh bread, pepperoni, cheese all melted in baked bread, mmm. Also ham n Swiss is good. They're really good if you warm them up in the toaster oven or microwave too. The cookies n cakes are also great. Idk the names but haven't found anything that tastes bad More...
A local favorite for my stepma for variety of cakes if I remember right. You get made to order I think it was. It was close to my folks old house. Have much to choose from- variety besides cakes. Thumbs up!! More...
Good but expensive.
My husband and I just moved in down the street, and were very excited to try Josef's. The parking is a bit inconvenient, because they only have street metered parking, but we're close enough to walk so it's not a problem. The chocolate croissants, black and white cookie, and cannolis are very good. All of it was very fresh and tasty. The staff were very willing and eager to help, since it was our first time. They also have an espresso machine which was an added bonus! Definitely recommend! More...
Very nice place to have a lite lunch.

Always Amazing, Always fresh, So Very Original, what else can be said?
Stopped in just for coffee and a pastry..both were great..the coffee was very impressive and I'm usually a picky coffee drinker. Want to go back.
The best chocolate cake.
My favorite thing at Josef's European Bakery is EVERYTHING! I will never bake another cake again. The small deli section is perfect for quick bite. The pastries are to die for. I could go on and on. You will just have to treat yourself to a sweet and see for yourself. More...
Our cake was absolutely AMAZING! Josef's holds a special place since my family has gotten a cake from them for every occasion so it was only fitting that we would get our wedding cake from there too. Also, my parent's wedding cake came from Josef's so it was special for me to get it from their too. My husband and I absolutely love dessert and cake, so it was super important that our wedding cake was unique, special, and tasty. We are the ones who always eat cake at a wedding - no matter what! We both love Carrot Cake, and since you do not typically see this at weddings we knew this is what we wanted for our wedding cake. Anthony, the baker, was awesome to work with. Made us a few sample cakes which was very nice, and even made a great suggestion on frosting (middle and outer layer) that we would have never thought of but we absolutely loved. He also put the flowers on the cake exactly how I envisioned. I could not recommend Josef's enough!! More...
Take a number upon arrival. Prepare to spend some $ here; and use cash or debit to not add to your bill. Some items are better than others, as most places. Any cake with chocolate mousse is fantastic. Tiramisu, not so much. While pretty, I haven't loved any of their individual desserts. If a special occasion brings you in, to look at the cakes with their beautiful shaved chocolate decorations or perfectly set fruit tarts you may think they cannot be personalized but they will prepare a message in icing on a plaque of chocolate if you ask. They have some lunch fare like quiche and coffee at the far end of the counter as well as a few small tables if you wish to consume your purchase on location. There's outdoor seating in season. My favorite items are right when you walk in. Top shelf are the pastry rings. While poppyseed & fruit are delicious, nothing beats their almond ring. Great thing to bring anywhere instead of donuts. For foodies you get about six servings. If you're dainty, there's definitely enough for an office of 10 to get a taste. If it's only something for one, they have almond croissants with marzipan that get me Mmm'ing with every bite. They have pain au chocolat. Their almond croissants WITH a chocolate strip are wonderful! They bake custom cakes made into the most interesting shapes such as a designer purse. I recently tried their cheesecake and while the crust is good, it's the actual cheesecake part that is the best I've ever had. I don't care for any of their cookies thus far. I've been meaning to try their bread but my pocketbook gets emptied on all of the above before I get to it. They're on a corner so street parking is usually not a problem. More...
A truly sweet lovers "heaven"
Always the best desserts
The lobster tails here are to die for.
You haven't been? Than you must!
Great little place. Excellent people and exceptional pastries and cakes.

My bear claw was so scumptious. I haven't delved into chocolate eclair yet. I love this bakery. My uncle purchased a bottle of raw honey. Josef's is such a cozy little bakery. They have great soups and sandwich's, apple dumplings and tarts, all delicious. Maybe tad pricey, but worth it. More...
Went here the Saturday before Easter and only waited in line about 20 minutes. They move everybody right along, and provided sample treats and coffee while we waited. Very nice! The pastries are good, but not perfect. Not if you are a home cooked, who uses real butter and fresh ingredients all the time. But I would recommend this when you want something and don't have time to cook yourself. More...
The best orange chiffon cake I've ever tasted in my life. I love flavors like lemon and orange and Josef'sBakery did not disappoint. So light and moist. The frosting was so delicious not sure but it must be a secret ingredient that I kept wanting more. My next occasion I will definitely go back to this fabulous bakery. I am not giving it a five star I give it a 10 star. Happy eating. More...
Obsessed with their chocolate croissants (I pop it in the microwave the next day and the butter and chocolate make me salivate lol). I live 45 min away from here but whenever I'm in the area for work I treat myself. It can get very busy, but for the quality of baked goods I cant believe how low the prices are, especially compared to bakeries I've been to whose baked goods taste pasty and bland...like meijer...and super expensive. Love you guys. More...
We had them make a very nice cake for our baby shower
