The staff was not friendly when I stopped in. Thought they were having a bad day so went back again. Still attitude. Twice the items I bought were not fresh. Just not happy bakers. Not worth the stop.

I have no idea how this place stayed in business. Bread is stale and tasteless. They don't know how to cook or bake. I think because of the location (on the way to the beach) and there is nothing else in the area, people stop there

The chowder is fantastic, the cookies incredible and everything they have is just as great. Stop in either going to the beach and get something to take with you, or stop on the way back and get something for later or drive miles out of your way just to pick up something special.

Cute little shack on the side of the road. Stopped for breakfast. I was the only one there.....got a ham & swiss croissant, a cheese Danish & a cupcake (of course) to go. Took one bite of the ham & swiss & threw it away, it was chewy & tasted bad. The Danish was ok, just like every other Danish... More

Improperly baked goods. The bakery sold my young daughter a half cooked pecan bun and when I went inside to ask them to exchanged it for a properly baked one, they yelled at me and were extremely rude. The concept of "the customer is right" is not the attitude of this establishment. I will never never go back.

This small bakery does a great job. It is on a side road,so get directions. The cinnamon buns are awesome and well worth the calories! Every day they bake different items. We always treat ourselves to this place,while on the cape.

Located on a fairly quiet street leading to the Bass River & Smuggler's Beach area, Great Island Bakery has so many delicious pastries, cakes, breads, your sweet tooth will go crazy.They also make items like Chili, Shepherd's Pie, etc. (Specials are listed on sign out front.) There is limited seating outside to enjoy your treat. Many customers bike, relax after... More

I stay along So Shore Dr. when I visit the cape. I love to take my daily walks along South St.so I can stop by the bakery for a treat or two. Wonderful muffins and Danish. I love their spinach pie. It's just a great way to start your morning on Cape Cod.
