This store is very fun to go into! One of my relatives is a bird owner and she goes here all the time for supplies. They have great accessories for birdcages, specialty bird foods, etc. Overall, they definitely have more bird-specific items than you'd be able to find in a regular pet store. The birds there are, of course, wonderful to visit with, too, and for sale if you are interested!
I went here to look at bridesmaid dresses for my wedding. I went on the weekend and they apparently don't let you try on bridesmaid dresses on the weekend - it has to be during the week. I can understand that, but it was disappointing. They did have a pretty good selection of Bill Levkoff dresses and others. Their selection of bridal gowns looked pretty amazing, too, which you could try on during the weekend with an appointment. Neat store!
I've gotten my hair cut here a few times and had great success each time. They are very talented here. Some of the stylists are more expensive than others, but they are all very talented. I also got my hair done for an evening event once here and was very impressed. My hair can be fussy and they did a great job!
I've gotten my hair cut here and it was done very well. However, my true raves about this place are for the owner who did my hair in an updo when I was in someone's wedding. He gave me a few ideas and then took it from there and it was the best updo I've ever had. Nothing has compared to it. He is extremely talented and friendly as are all of the staff. Great prices, too!
If you like Oshkosh clothes, this is the perfect store for you!They have very cute clothing for babies all the way through little kids. Their trademark overalls are always a hit as a kid's gift! The prices are typical Oshkosh meaning they are more in the GapKids price range, so it's a bit pricey, but well worth it for the quality clothes!
If you want the convenience of a bookstore in the mall, then this place is perfect. They have all of the best sellers, new releases, etc, and a little bit of everything. It is a small store, so they won't have the obscure book you may be looking for or something that's been out a long time that wasn't all that popular. And you won't get it for the cheapest price here, but you will get convenience if you want to combine trips in the mall.
PROS: Convenient location...
CONS: Not necessarily the cheapest prices
I think their baked goods are the real prize here. You can get all kinds of neat pastries, fruit tarts, and seasonal sweets at the bakery. They are great to bring home and serve to guests. If you eat in the cafe, I think the food there is overpriced, but good. However, that does not stop this place from being extremely crowded around lunchtime on the weekends. You often have to wait up to 20 minutes in the line to order your food or bakery items. It's very popular!
This store is hidden in a strip mall on Rockville PIke. YOu walk in and are surrounded by amazing baked goods. THey have all of the expected Entenmanns products and some you wouldn't expect, like english muffins. Just pay close attention to the expiration date and be willing to freeze some of your purchases and you should be all set. There are some really good deals to be found here!
PROS: Good Deals!
CONS: Close to Expiration Date...
We went there to look at cake designs and have some samples. First of all, her designs are amazing. She is very flexible and can do just about anything you want. The cake was also wonderful. My only concern was the price and I turned out to be right. Her cakes are much more expensive than some other places. I was trying not to spend too much on my cake, so I went somewhere else. However, if you have a bigger cake budget for your wedding, go for it! I would definitely go back and get one of her smaller cakes for a smaller occasion.
PROS: Great Selection!
CONS: Somewhat Expensive...
We went there for one of their monthly tastings. It was ridiculously busy. I highly recommend maybe going to that and then coming back another time. You need that to get the one on one attention you'll want when ordering your wedding cake. Their cakes are good. They aren't spectacular, but they are very good and the price is definitely right. They have lots of designs to choose form as well as combinations of cake and icing flavors. Very profesisonal business that's been around a long time - so they know what they are doing!
PROS: Professional Place, Lots of choices!
CONS: Extremely Crowded During MOnthly Tasting!
