Wards Pastry never disappoints! These are quality, homemade pastries on site - not shipped in from some warehouse somewhere. In this day and age with so many 'trendy' bakeries popping up all over its nice to still find a quality family owned/run business producing delicious pastries! They have the BEST jelly donuts and bacon cinnamon rolls - but you really... More

This is another must stop for us on our Ocean City vacation. This is a cash only business so be prepared. Everything we have gotten from this place is fresh delicious and made with love and care.

We have been coming to OC on vacation for 15 years and we stop at Wards almost daily for the fried cinnamon rolls, donuts and various pastries. Prices are very reasonable so you can try more!

We have been going to Ward's as long as I can remember. My Dad used to go every Saturday morning to load up on doughnuts, cinnamon buns and cookies. Now that my husband and I are spending our summer vacations in a Ocean City, we have continued the tradition. We were in Ocean City looking at rentals and decided to... More

We only got coffee and cookies, but the cookies were excellent, sold by the pound, and cheap! I don't know why a lot of reviews say they are pricey, I thought the opposite, especially when everything else in OC is steep. All I know is I need to go back tomorrow!

Run don't walk to get their sticky buns! We order dozens (to be sure they have them when we get there) and then bring them home and freeze them, cannot have enough. We've also tried other pastries and bread and those have been delicious too.

Never have been to Wards and decided to get donuts and pastry to take back to AC with us for the next morning. They didn't make morning... Their donuts hands down were the best we have ever had. Nothing like KK or Dunkin, or store bought. We have so many good bakeries in the Philly area but this place was... More

Our shore visit is always punctuated by visiting wards at opening (7am) and the smell of goodies coming out of the ovens. The sticky buns with nuts are as much of our family tradition as any other. Lots of other goodies here as well.

I found Wards online and saw that they sold butter cake. I wanted to purchase some to take to my brother as butter cake is his all time favorite. I purchased three cakes which were very reasonably priced. I wish now I had purchased more. They were wonderful! We may have to make a special trip to Ocean City to... More
