Rosie's bakery

Please help me spend a $25 gift card! Walked into the Mass Ave site, took a look at the limited and rather sad looking items in the cases and walked out empty handed. Trouble is, I bake a lot, things like classic bars, cookies and a variety of brownies so I want something that will be a treat. (i.e. Lakota cookies and cakes) I thought a cake would fit the bill but looking at the selection on their site, it all looks sort of Costco-ish or even supermarket quality. I've had the Snowqueen cake and enjoyed it but again, I can do gold cake with jam at home. What's a girl to do besides give the card away?

Am I wrong in thinking that there was a time when Rosie's was a good bakery but now, not so much? Are looks deceiving? What do you enjoy, crave, maybe even love from there?
