VERY BEST BAKERY AROUND!!!

Well everything that I have ever had from there is very good. My personal favorite is Smilie Face Cookies. But they are part of my one personal childhood memories (when Ed's was in Simons Grocery Store. Which is not Mike's Place Restaurant also very good). Many folks drive from Little Rock to get... read more

We love their custard filled chocolate eclairs. You usually have to order them a day or two in advance; but they are well worth it. They are delicious. Would have given a 5 star if they had fresh chocolate eclairs every day. Would most definitely recommend.

We got a cake and cupcakes. Both were very moist and and decorated beautifully. I was very pleased with the service and quality of Eds Bakery and will definitely be back.

Not only was the artwork amazing but the cake (white) was delicious. And of course, I grabbed a smiley face cookie when I picked it up! They can make those smiley face iced cookies in just about any shape you want as well.

Every time I go to conway I have to have at least half a dozen of the smileys or whatever specialty cookie for the month. This month is pumpkins, leaves, and acorns. So adorable and good! The best cookies I had in my lifetime

I've stopped by Ed's for various things over the years. We really like the strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting. Everyone is friendly and helpful.

Stopped here to get their famous apple fritters and cookies. They were a big hit and made the trip back to Dallas just fine. Stayed fresh for days.

A nice hometown bakery that's been around for years. The staff is friendly and eager to help. The cakes taste fresh and far superior than anything found in your average super market. Reasonable prices as well.

Everything here is plain, like it came out of a Wal-Mart bakery. Like so many places in Conway, this place lives off a reputation it built before they started to cut corners. Now it tastes like their frosting comes out of a pilsbury jar and the cakes are done by Duncan Hines. You're better off going to Cakes by Catie... More
