A lot of bakeries make their goodies a day in advance, and by then you are "buying day old". NOT the case with Lewes Bakery. Their bakery/pastry items taste like the JUST CAME OUT of THE OVEN. While their work acumen is old school their featured items are anything but.......new, inventive... read more

This place is confusing. It's a bakery and a coffee shop all under one roof. Confusing, because it's known locally as the Lewes Bake Shoppe, has signage to prove it, but it runs it's massive and incredible coffee brand under Notting Hill Coffee. These guys roast their own coffees, in house, and have the unroasted beans shipped in their original... More

On Second Street, in downtown Lewes, you'll find one of the best little coffee and sandwich shops in the area. The coffee is brewed fresh daily and the flavor selections are always inviting. There are numerous choices when it comes to flavored coffees and teas so consider taking some home or as a gift for that special someone. The sandwiches... More

The coffee is always good here. The pastries are fresh and they have great sandwiches for lunch. There are lots of different boxed teas and flavored coffees to take home too. We go here for coffee every time we visit Lewes.

The smell will get you started, your taste buds want everything in the case. It is a busy shop with limited seating, plus a lot of take out. I suggest you go in with a purpose - otherwise you'll walk out with two bags of very delicious pastry, bread or other goodies.

It is a great place to stop and rest during an afternoon of sight-seeing. Relax to great bake goods and a coffee.

We ate breakfast here twice on our recent weekend getaway to Lewes. The pastries were light and tasty, and the coffee selection was fantastic. Outside tables available, and a water bowl for the dogs.

These are long twisted cinnamon and brown sugar logs. Absolutely sinful!! Great coffee and smoothies too!

They roast their own coffee and I like to buy it and take it home. Their bake goods are good but I wish they would carry some gluten free things, bummer. Coffee to go is good but its small place and there is always a line, they need more help.

Been a fan for many years. Well worth the trip, even on a busy summer day. Way better than the run of the mill burnt coffee chain stores. Try a pastry you won't be sorry!
