First I must start by saying---- I love the KEY LIME PIE. I was frequently going to an Albany restaurant when I asked them if I could buy an entire pie from them.

While this is a a small shop it does not mean it is a bad shop.Every time i have gone to the shop have always got quick and friendly service.The selection of various desserts are wonderful.The price might seem like it is a little high but you get very outstanding food for the price.Their cheesecakes are to die for.

I have had many cakes made by J & S Watkins . They are noted for their cheesecakes which are absolutely delicious. However you must try their carrot cake, red velvet cake & cupcakes they are outstanding! My daughter's wedding cake was so good that we ran out because some of our guests went back for seconds. This is definitely... More
