I have just discovered this bakery via a friend - Beyond Exceptional pastries. Cream Horns are some of the best I have ever had the pleasure of consuming. The Chocolate Mousse Bomb is "da Bomb" and the carrot carrot is so moist and chock full of goodness. So many lovely European delights to... read more

I only recently discovered this bakery, located just off a busy thoroughfare in Westbrook, and have been back several times. Their croissants -- plain, almond, and chocolate -- are all outstanding, rivaling many I've had in France. I've also tried a couple of other pastries, and they too have been very good: not too sweet, and not too heavy on... More

This is my go to for baked goods. The cream horns are my favorite. They aren't too sweet and are buttery large sugar crystal delicious. The coffee rolls, croissants, blueberry cake and triangle bismarks? are also outstanding. I have been and had a few misses but it was probably someone in training....so 95 percent of the time everything is spot... More

Be prepared for a bit of a wait on a weekday at lunch time. The sandwiches here are legit, with amazing, fresh bread, delicious fillings and great value. Favorites are the Thanksgiving, Westbrook Club, and Curry Chicken Salad (which will run out). If you have room after the comically large sandwich, try one of the tempting pastries. If you are...

Had a great experience just before Christmas. Pleasant staff who went above and beyond. I explained that treats were being sent that day in the mail to NJ so needed to make sure they were going to make it in one piece. Not only did they pack it perfectly, they threw in extra, knowing it was a gift. Feedback from... More

Awesome little bakery with GIANT croissants breakfast sandwiches that are a family favorite. We buy one for every two people. Our only complaint is that they are so popular that the plain croissants are often sold out if we sleep late. That's our own fault. Great bakery!

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
