From Aerandria Scans:

Takamura Uru takes her mother’s remarriage as an opportunity to strike out on her own and begin a part time job. Filled with the thought of “If only I could make someone happy…”, she begins working at Café Bohneur, a shop famous for cakes; but the employees, Ichirou-kun and Shindou-san, turn out to be incredibly unsociable. These two, though frightening at first glance, begin to change something inside of her. This is the start of a romance about Uru’s search for happiness.

Contains the Oneshot "Suitei Seinen Shoujo"

The only reason I gave this a 9 was because the ending felt rushed. But maybe that was because I read it in one breath. Otherwise, I think I might have to read this awesome series all over again.

For a shoujo-reader, this manga was satisfying both visually (the art was fab) and emotionally (for the doki-doki moments). There are so many good looking male (and female) characters that I feel like it was a harem at times. In fact, it probably was that. But the heroine is worth rooting for, and the love triangle(s) are not too dramatic but still quite thrilling. Also, for readers like me who love a large cast with multiple pairings (and I mean like ten) then this is definitely a manga to pick up.

I personally adore this manga, but if you're someone who likes things that well, actually have a plot, then this is definitely not for you. It's basically fluff. But really awesome, adorable fluff. I love the main character, and there are moments where you laugh, cry, and go 'awwww'. It's a really good manga. I totally suggest that you read it if you like shoujo. The girl isn't annoying and whiny, and she's strong, cute, and funny. And there are lots of bishies, lol. <3 Always a plus. Also, if you bear with it, the story gets a lot more in depth. I think that it's just a really adorable story, and I 100% recommend it. If you haven't read it yet, give it a try!

Edit: The only weird thing is...

Sakuraba is Shindou's father, yet he creepily sexually abused Uru, his son's love interest. I found that a little disturbing, but it was less awkward since Uru's so dense.

This manga, I liked it but the end felt kinda rushed. The mangaka tried to fit in a lot of action into the last couple volumes, while all the others were pretty uneventful. While I was reading it, the manga seemed fine, but once I reached the last few chapters, I realized the majority of the previous chapters seemed pretty uneventful. Also, the verrrry end seemed really rushed, and we never got to see

Uru and Shindou together
much, and it just was alittle disappointing. :c
But the characters are still really cute, the art is very nice, and the manga itself is pretty funny. If you are looking for a manga with a ton of romance and angst in it, I wouldn't recommend this, but you should read it for all its other great aspects.

I looooooved this manga at reallllllly loved. I liked how all the characters were hilarious and the storyline seemed so perfect and how adorable all the romance went, as well as Uru's smiles. Anyways, there was a huge gap in the timeline of the releases because no groups were scanlating this project, so for about a few months i went and read other manga...when I came back to this one, my first reaction was, "How did I love this manga so much?" True, manga is really good and I was really entertained by it, but like someone mentioned before, it kind of got repetitive. Boring. I don't know if I should keep reading. There's nothing that motivates me to read, because I've gotten sick of Uru's smile. It's cute and all, but no one smiles that much. Sorry, I'm a realist. Everything just seems to unrealistic...that's not the reason I dislike it, because manga itself is created to be unrealistic sometimes. I just wish something would happen, instead of the same thing every chapter, you know what I mean? I'll probably get a lot of hate comments from this .-. Ah, well.

This a nice sweet manga, a good read that you will definitely enjoy. Though it's not my usual type of manga. I find myself more interested with the side characters. I really wanted to know more about Aizawa and Arimoto's reationship, but after vol. 7 not much more was told. However, the manga was still very enjoyable!

I love how this is not as cliche as all the other typical shoujo/romance stories I've read so far. ='p
Also, this is one of the funniest manga series I've ever read. (It's next to Skip Beat's. x'p)
But every moment is hilarious when it comes to this series. It's just soo lovable.

I smell a square going around here...well, it's certainly NOT a triangle. I feel as though four guys like her and she's so oblivious of it. (No, I'm not counting Sou's older brother...coz he's a playboy. xD)
I like how they all interact with each other...Uru's especially such a lovable character! ♥ She's cute and funny and soo naive. Haha~
A really funny thing about her is that she has such a monstrous strength. xD I wonder if anyone would break if she holds them...lawl
I would hope to read all the other chapters in a bunch coz I can't get enough of this manga. >w<
I'd go berserk waiting for chapter at a time so I'll go read the next chapters in a bunch...maybe I'll busy myself with something so that I won't get hungry for the Uru-ness. ♥ Haha~

Super hilarious and funny (lawl xDD) manga with a tinge of romance, this is definitely worth your time! ='p
I'd hope for this to become an anime too, but they might just ruined it..I think being a manga is just fine as it is. Since it's REALLY SUPER HILARIOUS to the bone as it is already. xDD Can't help ROFL-ing and LMAO-ing here while I try to re-read it from the beginning. Haha~

Well, don't let me be the judge, you go try and check it! ='D

I was totally into it.. But as it dragged on I found myself spread reading to get it over with.. Was expecting a better ending.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there was a nice build up.. From when the girl left home and found a good job with two guys... And her being so unladylike asked for good potential.. Then she started meeting others.. Got to know everyone better and fit in well.. But the love rival to the guy she worked with was her cousin first??? Very not cool in my books and just gross&#128552;. I felt it took way way too long for their love to be realized and although I thought the way the guy loves the cafe and baking was sexy.. I think here could have been a lot more for him to then what he was placed at.. I expected even a nice kiss in the end which was a bummer it didn't happen..

Actually loved the artistry of the characters

The story was super cute and light and fluffy
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
in the beginning
and funny and everything else. I loved every character. I <3 uru. She's super cute that at some point, I found myself hating her for being too cute (bitter much?). I <3 Ichirou too. Anyway, why didn't I give it a perfect rating? That's because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
this manga had me so depressed when everything got dark and all the secrets were revealed. I felt so sad for uru. T.T
. I fell in love with Abekawa Sou <3. He's so kawaii :3 I felt so bad for him (even though readers could probably guess from the start he's not gonna be the lead male :/ ) Oh well, if uru won't have him, I'll take him anytime. XD The only thing I didn't like in this manga is how everyone will forever love uru. Literally. Don't they deserve someone else? I understand how they'd give up everything for the girl they love (that's for you Ichirou!) but that's just too sad knowing that it'll always be a one-side love. sad (((((((((

Don't get me wrong though, this manga is AWESOME \m/. It'll get you ROTFL especially Ichirou (Banzai! Spin! And pose!).

Note: i don't recommend this those who get too attached to the guy who will never be the lead male. It's heartbreaking. Srsly.
