We ordered a birthday cake from KW cakes. It was perfectly done and tasted wonderful. They delivered it for us and it arrived on time.

As I walked in a nice young lady greeted me and said hello. As I was pondering over my selection, a very rude gentleman walked out of freezer with a cake in hand, and as he sat it down turns to me and says" if you need help you need to speak up and ask". I was dumbfounded and only... More

Try this place as the cookies - especially coconut dipped in chocolate are the best - the chocolate cupcakes are my favorite. If you are there on Tuesdays around 10 am, buy the chicken pot pie - delicious. This is the best!

With a combined age of 278 years, the four of us have tasted a lot of cakes both here and abroad. The chocolate birthday cake was one of the best. The cake was light and delicious. The chocolate hazelnut ganache frosting was without peer. The 9 inch cake disappeared almost overnight.

Also he was cooperative enough to stay... More

Who doesn't love a good cookie and a Laugh. This place is fun fun fun. They all seem to laugh while working and just in general produce some of the finest baked goods in all of the Keys. Now the prices reflect that (expensive) but it's worth every cent.

We stopped in and split a Key Lime "stuffed" cupcake. Wonderful! Not only was the frosting Key Lime-flavored, but the cake itself was as well. Very delicious!
