The best coffee cake! Freshly made daily, loaded with whatever flavor you'd like and the price is right! The only criticism I have is that they need to have longer hours of operation. I will try to go there after work and they are closed. I understand why, to keep bakery items fresh and keep their low prices. Great local... More

I grew up with this bakery. They have been around a long time! I have had several cakes decorated for special occasions and they have never disappointed. The treats are delicious. The staff is always helpful and friendly. I hope they stay around forever.

We arrived at 7:30 on a Saturday morning and it was packed! Great homemade goodies! I hadn't been back there in many years and they are the only business still left! Try them! You won't be disappointed!

Eclairs come in two sizes, all the donuts and pastries are good & fresh, the staff is friendly, and the multi-layered "Atomic Cake" is the best birthday cake anywhere. It might be a bit busy, but worth the short wait.

I get pastries at Busy Bee for special occasions at work, or if I’m in the area. My last “special occasion” was paying the water bill, but any excuse is a good one in this case. Their baked goods are by far the best I’ve found in the area. All I have to say at work is Busy Bee, and... More

The donuts, pastry, and other sweet treats at Busy Bee are flat out amazing. The family favorite is the cinnamon roll, with or without apple bits added. The turnovers are stuffed full of filling and the custard filled donuts are fabulous! The prices are great, too, with most pastries between $1- $2 each. I go elsewhere for loaves of bread... More

If you are looking for a place to find melt in your mouth pastries and amazingly original cakes, then look no further. Their butter cookies are just too amazing for words. I went there on a whim one day when I was out for a walk and now I am addicted! They make fresh breads, cakes, pastries, cookies, donuts and... More
