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!

Lovely little shop

My daughter and I stopped in for ice cream on a Friday afternoon. Not only did we have our delicious cones, but also enjoyed a wonderful conversation with Richelle, her staff, and her family. What a treat! Thank you for making us feel at home during our visit from California!

The owner and staff are lovely, the place is adorable, the sweets look so divine and so beautiful, and the addition of breakfast crepes expands the possibilities for this place. I wanted to love it. I visited it two times in two days. But alas, neither the donut nor crepe seemed made from scratch--perhaps a little supermarket pre-made dough/batter assistance... More

A delightful Bakery located in the Windsor Hotel. Richelle's brings the southern home town feel making you feel like family in her atmosphere and like your grandma home cooked sweets in your stomach. You can't visit Americus without visiting this delightful bakery with great customer service and even better desserts!

Richelle's is not just a cute bakery right next door to the Windsor Hotel, it's a fantastic place run by people that (re)define the art of baking: cakes, tarts, pastries, muffins, cup cakes, etc. - you can taste, smell and see that these people love and care for their bakery. We fell in love with the cupcakes and it was... More

Part of the Windsor Hotel, this bakery/coffee shop has excellent coffee. We were there late in the day and so the selection of pastries was limited. We didn't have the cupcakes. The wedding cookies were good, but not excellent. And I would pass on the corn flake candy, which the wait person said was their best seller. But I would... More

I love this place, they always have the freshest cupcakes that are amazing and you can order canolli that are made fresh and are just as good as getting them from an Italian restaurant, just everything there is delicious and I definitely recommend them to anyone who loves sweets!

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!
