If you haven't tried them, you're missing out! Great donuts, pastries and bagels. Unfortunately, everybody knows about them and the lines can get quite long in the morning.

We stopped at Wards this morning after hearing of it and reading some reviews. I guess I should tell you I stopped one day at closing time and had to come back the next day. We looked and listened and choose two pastries. We sat at a small table for two by the front door I listened to Becky instructing... More

They have excellent gingerbread & nice cookies. Have gotten trays of cookies for parties here & everyone loves them & they disappear! Good coffee too & excellent breakfast breads.

Friendly staff, quaint old bakery filled with cookie jar collection, but nothing fancy at all. What you go for is the BUTTER CAKE! This Philadelphia specialty is hard to find anymore, but this is the real thing. Gooey butter on a yeast dough - so sweet!. The donuts are great too, especially the Boston Crème - the jelly donuts are... More

Ward's has the BEST donuts! They are a bakery that offers coffee, fresh pastries, cookies and cakes. The staff is always friendly. Treat yourself to anything from Ward's! They are reasonable and worth the trip!!

I'm not a regular at wards pastry, but I so go for specific items when I am in the area. Usually I get the cinnamon pockets. These are little squares of pastry filled with a cinnamon mixture that I have never found elsewhere. They are each about one bite full and they are delicious. Today I discovered a new item... More

If you are there before noon, the selection is fantastic. As the afternoon goes on, there is less and less of a selection. The wait staff behind the counter are always pleasant and helpful. The prices are good.

We stopped by Wards a couple of times during this beach trip and found that the cases were not always full. Luckily, the sticky buns were just coming out of the oven and we were able to get some of those. We picked up some bagels that we were told were made elsewhere. Everything we got was good. The missing... More

We go here occasionally and each time I think I will try something new and it will be better than the last time, but it never is. I'm not sure if it's that this bakery is right on Asbury Ave or the familiar name, but there are many other bakeries in Ocean City that we go to and always enjoy.

A mid-morning sweet snack at Ward's included an excellent chocolate croissant as well as some much anticipated bacon cinnamon buns. The bacon cinnamon buns were a disappointment - a little dry, not much bacon flavor. Stick to the donuts, cheese Danish and croissants. Get there early for eclairs.
