I've tried many of the items they offer and they are all delicious. I don't usually eat cream horns but someone gave me one and Oh My!! Amazing. It's a great little bakery and they don't charge a fortune. The large blueberry coffee cake is less than $10! Definitely pay them a visit.

This bakery is great! I love the pastry's and bread. The pastry's are made right in house from scratch with real ingredients. No oily greasy pastry but made with real butter! The pastry's are big and cheap too. The only reason I did not give the bakery a five star is the sandwiches. They are good too, but a little... More

From what I have had so far has been pretty good. The chocolate bombs are great. The only turn off about this place is how junking/dirty it looks from the outside. They don't even try to hide the dumpster. Other than that they make great products from what I have tried so far. I will be back.

I had their whoppie pie cake today for a birthday for one of my coworkers. It was over the top! I also purchased two creme horns. Flakey buttery pastry with a delicious filling! I have never had creme horns like these! Yummy!

It's easy to drive by on William Clark Drive and not notice Bakers Bench even tho it is painted a bright yellow. The pastries, muffins, Danish, etc. are excellent. Three kinds of brownies--with a fluffy raspberry, peanut, or mint topping. Chocolate bomb, cream puffs, and eclairs to die for. The cream puffs are filled with custard AND whipped cream. They...

This place has the feel of a real old fashion bakery. At any time of day you can walk in and immediately be hit with the comforting smells of yummy baked goodness! The chocolate Mousse bombs are my favorite but I have yet to try anything that isn't wonderful. Prices are a little higher than say a market bakery but... More

They have the most excellent whoopie pies and cream horns. Their turnovers are really good too. They are always very friendly and willing to help you. Nice family run place.
