Let’s support our local businesses during this difficult time. I just called and Early Baker is doing takeout and curbside. They have some really fantastic baking going on there. Also, have you tried lunch or dinner there? Interesting selection of different types of meals - each one a treat. The owner is extremely lovely. Hoping to get us Ahwatukeans out there to support this business during this difficult time and beyond.


I really liked the place and the food. Their baked good and cakes are amazing! Will definitely go back.

I’ve found the restaurant to be closed during their regular business hours multiple times. Doors locked, lights off, but all signs say open.

Our soccer game was rained out and we just found this place randomly. Glad we did. The food was delicious. My family tried everything from smoothies and muffins to the chicken crepes. Everything was delicious. The owner is super friendly. Made us feel like regulars even though it was our first time there. It was an awesome experience. I’m actually glad we got rained out. Highly recommend this place for breakfast.

Excellent customer service! The owners are really incredible and go above and beyond to provide home town service in a major metropolitan area. I am so thankful for the incredible kindness and delicious cake for my father’s 66th birthday cake!

If your in awatukee, this is a place you have to definetly go to for breakfast, they have amazing croissants but they are so good sometimes the restuant can't keep up with the orders. I had the Brioche French Toast and lemme tell ya, that was phenomenal. They have the standard fountain drinks but then they also have a specialty drink where they mix a special syrup with sprite and my god that is the greatest drink I think I've ever had. It was creamy and sweet, yet not overpoweringly so. All in all the drink was NICE, the food was indescribable, the owner was so personable that I might end up going back just to see how he's doing, and the environment is quite cozy. All in all a solid 5 star place in my book and this is the place to get the best breakfast around.

I can’t believe more people don’t come here. So fresh, authentic, and delicious. The owners are legit and super personable/fun. They are really accommodating too (garlic intolerance). Breakfast all day, lunch, dinner, and yummy desserts/treats. The croissants and coconut macaroons are so good! Everything is so good.

First time the the Early Baker. We were instantly attracted to the “Pets Welcomed”in the patio area. The owner happily greeted us and provided water for our dogs. The food was delicious, portions were great and the service itself was amazing and genuine BY BOTH the owner and employees. Loved this new find and HIGHLY recommend!

Omg delish!!!! How have I not been to this place ??!! I cane in to get some pastries but ended up getting lunch - I ordered the Lamb chop entree and it's amazing I got! $15 for three chops, veggies, salad and garlic bread! The restaurant is clean, nice and bright and everyone is very friendly! I got baclavas for desert and it's one of the best I've had!!! I'll be back for sure.

In a word, WOW! This is a quaint little restaurant tucked away in the Safeway/Trader Joe's parking lot in Ahwatukee off of 40th street. My Wife and I stopped off here for some breakfast and were completely blown away. The owner of the place is extremely friendly and quick witted. After looking over the menu I decided on a spicy egg sandwich while my Wife selected the Chicken Florentine Crepe breakfast plate. My sandwich was extremely flavorful and filling. The Florentine was exquisite. It was by far the absolutely BEST Florentine I have ever had in my life! EVERYONE SHOULD EAT HERE!

The Egg Cheese Melt panini was great. The fruit side was excellent, the fruit was ripe and flavorful. The pastries looked wonderful. Next visit I have to leave room!

I ate here for the first time and it was great! You must have the almond croissant it was delicious- I also had the Fit breakfast with egg whites and it was tasty - I look forward to eating here again.

A more accurate description of the lamb chops on the menu would be a half rack of lamb. The fresh rosemary really drew out the flavor and I didn't have to request the lamb medium rare - it was just served that way. The grilled vegetables and rice complemented the lamb perfectly. I had the lamb to go and it was all beautifully encapsulated with a large pita that was not only aesthetically pleasing but edible as well! Slices of fresh baked bread, then toasted with spread was delicious by itself. I also ordered a slice of the tiramisu and it was truly decadent, delicious. There was a decent selection of dessert even around closing. Bare in mind this was a takeout order, I can only imagine what the food would been like right off the grill. I crave their food and want to go back. I would have no qualms recommending this restaurant to anyone.

This place is absolutely wonderful. My friend saw this place on yelp and wanted to try it out. First, from the time I came into the place until I left, the customer service was excellent. The owner, I refer to him as everybody's favorite Uncle, was friendly and accommodating. The food was so delicious. If you go make sure you try the lamb chops. They're heaven on earth. I'd show you a picture but it'd be all bones. Lol. Oh and the baked goods are amazing as well. Try the tiramisu. I'll be back every two weeks for sure.

Can't believe I've lived within walking distance to this amazing cafe and have never been in until today! I had the Chicken Florentine crepes with a side of potatoes and a fruit tart, everything was so delicious. Service is excellent, the inside is open and spacious. This will be my new go-to breakfast spot. An extra special 'thank you' for a surprise chocolate macaron treat for my first timer visit.

J & D Pascale

The food here is excellent. It always fresh and very tasty. Their gyros are so good. Just the right amount of seasoning and the bread is terrific. The side salad that comes with the gyro is delicious...highly recommend everyone try this hidden gem.

Mark T.

This is one of my wife's favorite breakfast spots. She absolutely loves the crepes and gets them every time. I do try to mix it up a little and everything I have every had has been wonderful. The bakery is great and the breakfast is wonderful. Definitely check it out.

Awesome restaurant with amazing (and quite funny) owners. I have heard nothing but amazing reviews about their food and service. My family is in town for thanksgiving and we prefer to spend as much time as possible together during the short time they are here, so we decided to cut the pie making out of the menu and explore having early baker make them. We stopped in and Adam (the owner) was super kind and treated us to deserts. The deserts were awesome. My family was truly amazed. They are open and baking fresh pies until 2pm on Thanksgiving. I am sure they will make them better then I would anyway and I'm super excited that they will be fresh as well. Please support this local restaurant. Ahwatukee is a very difficult place to maintain a business. Please come support them and keep this amazing restaurant open in our awesome little town.

Home of the Real Croissant! A local spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Popular for their bake goods like cakes, pastries, cookies and they have the MOST WANTED DELICACIES the Macaroons! You placed your order in the cashier counter and they bring your food when it's ready. The dining area is cleaned and very homey ambience, which made me feel at home eating delicious food. I ate breakfast here today and I love how fresh their ingredients are and their hot dark mocha is so good paired with my breakfast. They cater for breakfast, luncheons and dinners- (Hors d'oeuvres, party platters, buffets, desserts, custom cakes, taco bar, sliders, fajitas, crepes, baked potatoes and salad bar.) After breakfast, I just have to try their popular almond croissant and couple of their macaroons. I first tried the pistachio macaroon, it was crunchy on the outside and cloud 9 in the middle. It was very difficult not to devour these pastries. The almond croissant was to die for, slightly toasty, super soft and flaky heavenly goodness. Wow! Holy deliciousness! I am hooked and fell in love with a new local bakery/restaurant. I would come back for more tasty food and bake goods that are baked here in their own bakery, because I'm all about supporting the locals! Many of their items come with a money back guarantee. If its not the best you have ever had, it'll be free!

Had the special today. Absolutely fantastic. Owner was extremely helpful and friendly, you can tell he’s proud to be here. Think I found my new favorite place.

I very rarely give 5 stars, but I am loving this place. The owners are very nice and the food is awesome. The sweets do not disappoint.

My 13-year-old son couldn't stop raving about this place, as his grandma has taken him to it many times, so I headed over to check it out. Met a girlfriend for breakfast--delicious! This place is the real deal. Their breakfast items, salads, bakery goodies, and dinners are top notch. My husband raves about the lamb chops. The atmosphere is casual and cozy~ a perfect place to meet a friend for coffee or a meal. Their smoothies are wonderful as well. Please frequent this place, as we'd like it to stick around. Oh, I also appreciate that they give Kyrene employees 20% off when you show your badge. Thanks, Early Baker!

This place is amazing! Great breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. We had the crepes, some of the egg sandwiches, and some of the dinner options as well.....oh, and we ALWAYS top it off with one of their homemade desserts (we love the macarons), and everything is always delicious. The decor is casual and super clean. The owners are always there and just the nicest people in the world. I can't recommend this place enough. They are a wonderful alternative to all of the chain restaurants. Please support our local businesses.

So so so so so good!!! Currently eating the vegan burrito. Oh so delicious & vegan/vegetarian friendly. friendly customer service & a nice, relaxing place to be over a nice meal. Can't beat it!

Breanna Ercolani

Most amazing family owned place to eat. The owner always treats us like family and the food is always excellent. And to top it off the wife is one of the most talented bakers I’ve ever met. We wouldn’t go anywhere else for our baked goods. ❤️ HIGHLY recommend stopping in. This place is a real gem.

Nicole H.

What a hidden gem! Stopped in while shopping in the plaza, where Early Baker is located, and so happy I gave it a try! The food was fabulous; I had the vegan burrito with side salad. Everything is so fresh and tasty and the salad dressing is DELICIOUS! Not a big dessert person but decided to give the macaroons a try. Hello tastebud goodness. Atmosphere was wonderful and service was very friendly. Seems to be quite a few regulars. An added bonus, their patio is pet friendly. I will definitely be back.

Met 3 friends for lunch Friday early afternoon. Had the Chicken Parmesan sandwich, that was really good. Also tried a slice of their new Kitkat cake. Very tasty. Another patron, mentioned that I should try the almond croissant. So I'll try that one next time I am in. Nice local family owned place!

The owner of this company gave me a free croissant for my coworkers birthday. They are the sweetest people and this bakery is so beautiful! Also DELICIOUS TREATS. I highly recommend!

Heba Barazi

I had a most remarkable Croissant here! You could smell the fresh butter as you bring it to your mouth. The flakiness is heavenly as you bite into it. Then the thing melts in your mouth. I’m salivating for another as I write this! I also had the baked eggs boat. Oh goodness abound!

Ed Stock

My daughter and I love going here for their Gyros.

This place makes croissants the way I like them. A little crispy outside and scrumptious everywhere else. Totally recommend the vegan breakfast burrito. I know it is vegan, but the tastes are oh so good. If you are vegan try it, if you are not vegan try it! The real reason we are supporters of this place, are the desserts. The german chocolate cake is our favorite, although we have tried just about all the desserts and have never been disappointed. The coffee according to hubby is the best. The cold brew is awesome as well. Hubby also like the special of french toast on brioche. Limited availability, but always his favorite. Service here in the morning is great. Service in the evening is hit or miss. We have walked out several nights due to lack of service. So I highly recommend visits in the mornings.

Had a taco bar catered for my sons birthday and to say it was amazing would be a huge understatement! Absolutely phenomenal food and great service from Adam the owner. I recommend EarlyBaker with 100% confidence that you will not be disappointed.

Graham W.

Found this hidden gem on yelp and we're glad that we did! Great food, Lamb Chops cooked to perfection and an interesting Mixed Grill. Friendly service and priced right too. We'll be back!!

Reesha M.

Walked into early Baker on a whim and what a great choice! We had the Japanese cheesecake which was so light and fluffy with the right amount of sweetness. Adam the owner also provided us with samples to the napoleon and tres leche cake. It was all delicious. All had the perfect amount of sweetness and texture. Adam was great! Provided great service, was very friendly and funny. The perfect atmosphere to end a dinner date with some friends. I will definitely be back to try more items from their menu. The croissants are known to be amazing! Definitely worth the try.

Stan T.

Excellent 86th birthday for my mother-in-law last night. Almond croissant was the best ever. Adam was so kind and brought out dessert for the birthday girl, plus a song and a kiss. We had a totally enjoyable and delicious time at Early Baker. Definitely will be back.
