Great place for a special cake

Got 2 cakes for a special party and they were a big hit especially the key lime. The Tres leche cake made the Cinco de Maya party!

I have been going here for years. Friendly and quick service. The baked goods are to die for. New owners took over in Feb. 2015. So far, after three visits, the 5 stars go down to 2 stars. Service is slow, which i will give them for being new, but when they look at you and walk away...oh no. Cakery... More

This is where we go for cakes, tarts and pies for every special occasion. Can't be beat! Everything super fresh and imaginative. Kills my diet just walking in the shop and smelling the goods.

The Cakery has a very small storefront in behind and old shopping center. It is not visible from the road. There is no dining, but there is counter service to purchase the most delicious and decadent baked items. There are large cookies, cakes, fruit tarts, eclairs, and chocolate desserts. I have to make a special trip to go there, and... More

The Cakery is in a tiny spot in the rear of a strip mall. With no foot traffic it should've been closed within six months of its opening. One cannot even see it from the road or the main parking lot of the shopping center. Yet, The Cakery is going strong many years after it opened. Why? Everything they make... More

There are not too many true bakeries left around. The Cakery is great to have in town. The selection is limited but it is delicious. And if you order ahead of time they will make almost anything. People just love it when I bring a gift from here. Try the chocolate cake if you dare

We order items from the Cakery for special occasions. The prices are bit more than others but so well worth it. You always get your money's worth. The quality and taste of all products are excellent. We consistently hear compliments from family and friends on all Cakery product we serve. Extremely nice staff!

The BEST bakery within 20 miles - I just WISH they were open on Sunday mornings so I could bring the freshness home THAT day! Try the chocolate croissants - YUM.
