Good Sticky Buns

We stop in at the bakery a couple of times during our stay on the way down to the beach. It's always nice eating one of their sticky buns on the beach. We always seem to arrive, when most things are gone, but happy with the cinnamon rolls. We arrived one afternoon while she was just closing... read more

Home made sticky buns, cinnamon rolls, cookies, and the best key lime pie in Cape Cod! Although the selections are limited, we are always satisfied with our purchases!

It's a little tough to park but worth that and the little bit of a wait. Everything is good pastry, muffins, pies, breads.

I agree with other reviews. The owner and cook, by no means a pastry chef and her mother have attitude. They are running a business that serves the consumer, but they have no people skills. I guess that is why they own and operate this place with just the two of them. The items change daily, so if you wanted... More

I went to this bakery to purchase some pastries for my guests, and was disappointed. The selection was small, and what I did buy wasn't very fresh. As for the personnel, they were rather taciturn., so to say I was disappointed is probably an understatement. I felt they were overpriced, but that is just an opinion, as I don't frequent... More

Although the what we bought was ok it wasn't fantastice and it seemed pretty expensive. We went in the afternoon so there wasn't much choice left but we felt £4.50 for 2 buns was overly priced considering they weren't fresh. The lady is lovely I must say and very chatty.

Two women were busy baking the afternoon we stopped by on way to Red Jacket beach resorts. So many choices, both savory and sweet. Everything looked home made. Good prices. Large portions.

I drive by this cute little roadside bakery a few times a week and I wish I could say it was great! But, it's not. It's very inconsistent, selection varies from day to day, and baked goods are just so-so. I make my own cookies from scratch and I can not understand how they can make cookies that are tasteless,...
