This is a place for outrageous homemade sweets such as orange blossoms, pastries, cookies, bars and big gourmet cupcakes that people are falling all over each other to get before the shop sells out every day. Everyone enjoys the ice cream counter featuring hand dipped Blue Bell ice cream... Milk shakes, sundaes, malts or fruit smoothies are just a few of choice to pick from at this wonderful hometown bakery/ ice cream shoppe!

I love sweets. After reading the reviews of Richelle's here I could hardly wait to try it during our visit to Americus. We certainly were not disappointed. This is a pretty little shop located in the front of the Windsor Hotel. With a great selection of fresh pastries, It was difficult to chose just one, so I had two. The... More

I now travel in this area for work and I can't resist the urge to stop in at Richelle's and try some of her wonderful bakery items. Everything I have tried has been wonderful! The cupcakes are moist and each flavor is delicious and unique. You can smell them baking in the oven. Definitely homemade! I love the fiesta cookies... More

What a treat! Richelle's was much more than a bakery. They make you feel at home. Richelle was very informative about local restaurants and other attractions around Americus. We bought samples for ourselves and samplers for relatives. Excellent sugary treats and hospitality!

Several of my friends had ordered or tried things from Richelle's bakery and had all been pleased. I noticed on the website that they also offered casseroles three days a week. Since I don't enjoy cooking, I decided to try a couple, and they are to die for! They offer two different casseroles Tuesdays-Thursdays, and now my problem is trying... More

Stayed at the Windsor Hotel back in October 2014 and came upon Richelle's. My husband and I are STILL talking about this bakery's cupcakes 5 months later! This is hands down the best bakery I have ever been to. (I lived in Atlanta and now Los Angeles and there are some wonderful bakeries in these towns too…but Richellle's takes the... More

We dropped in for morning coffee and pastries before getting back on the road for a quick detour to visit Warm Springs . The wonderful woman who waited on us (I think the owner, if not she should be :) engaged us in wonderful conversation about Americus, Plains, the Habitat project etc. the most important thing she did was to...

We stayed in the hotel on our previous visit but this time made a special trip to visit Richelle's. It's a comfy little place right off the lobby of the hotel. We had cupcakes and they were delicious. The pumpkin was especially fantastic. The service is very special and it feels like you have stopped in for a treat with... More
