Yelper Agha M., who reviewed Baklovah Bakery on March 3, wrote, "OMG... I'm so glad I was introduced to this place by my waiter Carlo From Pasha. I tried the following pastries and I'm just in love with them all: Coffee mousse, mini turtle cheesecake, French vanilla cookies with apricot jam. If I'm visiting San Antonio, for sure I'm coming here and enjoying this place again."
Yelper Brent L. wrote, "OK, stop what you are doing right now, and rush to one of their two locations. It is that good. I first discovered this place a few years ago and have since been back quite a few times for their cakes. If you want to be the hero of the next house party, or potluck you attend, pick up one of Baklovah's decadent, moist, and always fresh cakes."
