Seven years ago I ordered a gorgeous but tasteless birthday cake here. Upon word of new management I had high hopes to support local business. Unfortunately, even after I expressed my concerns from my previous experience, I was still underwhelmed with the EXACT same flavorless tasting buttercream frosting recipe and overcooked cake. I will NEVER return to this bakery. Just... More

We got our son's wedding cake here, and also pastries for the engagement party, and all of it was just wonderful. They were great to deal with for tastings, and delivered food that was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. Go here soon!

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
