Very good pastries, cakes, cookies, sweets! Nice atmosphere & place to rest while shopping.

We were busy shopping & walking to the Portland Stage for a Christmas Carol, but wanted a place to get out of the cold and have a bite to eat. We chose this based on the clean look, available seating, & the variety in the pastry cases. It was a great choice. The hard part was choosing something... read more

We made an appointment with Foley's and twenty minutes before our appointment they cancel. So we call and reschedule. We are both very busy, as we are planning for our wedding. We arrange our schedules so that we can both meet with Foley's for our cake tasting. We arrive super excited to try a variety of deserts and they hand... More

Recently I was having friends for a birthday celebration. My friend was particular re likes and desires. She only wanted a dense almond cake with rich vanilla butter cream frosting. I asked around and was directed to this bakery. I met the owner baker who got excited and said she had a recipe and would make this custom cake for... More

I try to come by here often as I like to support local bakeries. This place has some of the best desserts and baked goods. Considering there have been situations where I have had "dessert" at a restaurant only to be wishing I had paid less for a far better product that would have been created here. I have tried... More

We always buy all our holiday cakes at Foley's. This year we ordered our usual carrot cake for Thanksgiving and we were surprised and disappointed to discover that the cake is much smaller and only ONE LAYER. To top it all off, the frosting is too sweet and it was never like that before. Still $28 bucks tho. Guess we... More

We LOVED the carrot cake at Foley's! Unfortunately, since the bakery was sold, it's just not as good. I wanted to love it, but it was dry, almost stale, and the spices in it were "strange". I'm sorry, but that's the best way I can describe it. I have never minded going out of my way to stop at Foley's,... More

Sorry for your disappointment in the carrot cake... we try very hard to have fresh items out everyday. We sometimes overlook things, that's why these reviews come in very handy so we can remedy the problems you as customers may have. If you come back and try it again you won't be disappointed. Again, I'm very sorry. Thank you for... More

Walked into this place for a cup of coffee while my husband went off to the Longfellow House to buy our tickets. I didn't have cash to pay for my coffee without husband , and their credit card machine was not working. They let me take my coffee and took my name, so I could come back and pay later.... More

I am not much a creme horn fan, but foley's is extraordinary. Have loved every cake and pastry I have had here. If it's a treat you want, this is the place to go.

Absolutely heaven, and I don't even care for baked goods. My husband was teaching at Maine College of Art this semester, and he and our daughter who lives in Portland made a daily ritual of visiting Foley's for a cup of coffee and to split a cookie every afternoon. When it was time for a big birthday in the family,... More
