I am a regular customer at the WL Bakery. They have an amazing variety of tasty baked goods for sale, and my particular favorites are the pies. I am also partial to the pizza bagels and the tea biscuits, but the pies are the main attraction.
The apple pie is a sublime creation, with flaky crust and delicious fruity filling. In fact, all the fruit pies at WL are better than the monstrosities you can find at the local Safeway. IMHO the apple pie is surpassed only by the meat pies. For about 7 bucks you can get a chicken or beef pie which is enough to feed two hungry people. The fillings are excellent and packed with flavorful meat and gravy. I have also experimented with the quiche, which comes in 3 varieties, but I am always drawn back to the meat pies. I buy one about once or twice a month, and I am never disappointed.
Service is great, although they are often busy on weekends so the popular baked goods sell out fast. The bakery is also nice and clean, and the smell of baking is always intoxicating. It is not too expensive either.
Worth visiting if you are in the mall.
