Never disappoints!

Wards Pastry never disappoints in their baked goods. I am a 3rd generation customer that regularly enjoys their pastries and breads. The sticky buns are the absolute best, with or without the pecans! The hamburger rolls are a must for a great burger!

Unquestionably the best pastries on the island. We never miss their sticky cinnamon buns, fried donuts (get there early!), and if you need a cake, theirs are the absolute best.

we came here specifically for the gingerbread men and their famous scrapple pie. we also got a few pastries as well. the pastries were light and flaky; the gingerbread soft and chewy. the scrapple pie is a pie crust with a filling of scrapple and a cinnamon crumb pie crust; a tasty combination of sweet and savory. worth the try...

Simplw bakery with a limited selection. Hard to imagine that on a Sunday morning excuse me on a Saturday morning they didn't have a single egg roll in the store. Actually they didn't have a single breakfast roll. Is that possible? We got some mini cheese danish they were tasty we got some bagels that they acknowledged they didn't even... More

Great sticky buns. The Scrapple Pie is worth a try because it is different. I love scrapple, but the sweetness of the pie is too much.

Wards is an island favorite for decades. The sticky buns and fried rolls are outstanding. It is a classic bakery with great selections. Step inside and your stomach and nose will thank you.

After going to another bakery early Sunday morning and discovering they had no sticky buns, we walked down to Ward's. The walk was so worth it! They offer sticky buns with and without nuts (we got both) and though we stuck with just the sticky buns, they had so many tempting delights! The young lady that waited on was pleasant.... More

Ocean City has the cutest downtown for shopping and eating. Ward's Bakery is fresh with friendly service. When you arrive walk to the back and take a number. The donuts are fresh with many to choose from while the iced cinnamon roll is our favorite. The sticky buns are delicious as well as the cupcakes. Ward's has fresh coffee too... More

We had excellent service! The females working were so nice and helpful. The prices were very affordable, especially for what we got. I loved everything I had - Boston Cream donut and an oatmeal raisin cookie. My partner had an apple danish and a chocolate chip cookie. I bought my parents cinnamon rolls. Everything was FANTASTIC! We will definitely be... More

I was introduced to Wards a while ago. My friend's description of the place and its bread, pastries, cookies - you name it - was spot on. As previous reviewers have stated, Wards is always busy and you'll seldom find a downtime. I've had donuts and cookies from there and they were excellent. I even shared some of the cookies... More
