good bread

I decided to order dinner rolls for a special occasion. It was a rather large order and I wanted to try something different than the grocery store where we would normally order breads and rolls. The baker (owner) was very helpful. The order was ready on time and the service was great. After hearing... read more

East Side Bakery pizza is now a family tradition! Every Friday my family loves to try different kinds of their pizza and wings- just delicious! And of course we are tempted by all of the yummy pastries and always pick up a few for dessert. Another perk of this popular local treasure is that you can order ahead on holidays-... More

A million amazing combinations and the wings are delicious - don't cheat yourself out of dessert either. You can't go wrong with ESB!

The wide array of baked goods are as good as they look, wonderful. Where this place drops the ball is their pizza. They only make pizza on certain days and times. Having watched many cooking shows I can tell you they need to sample their pizza. If they knew that it is over cooked and lacking of sauce, I truly... More

I am from out of town, and tried numerous times to call and get cake prices for my neice that goes to school at SUNY Cortland. My phone calls were never returned and the staff was not very friendly or helpful. Unfortunatley, giving a two months notice was not enough time and we had to settle for the grocery store.

We've been going to East Side Bakery for years and have always been pleased. ESB has been making the birthday cakes for our daughters' birthday parties every year. Whatever crazy theme my kids can come up with for their parties, ESB can make a cake out of it. And the cakes are always crowd pleasers. We're always asked where the... More

We ordered my daughter's birthday cake from East Side Bakery in Cortland. It was both adorable and delicious! All of the girls at her pre-teen party raved; I think they had mixed emotions about cutting it because it was so pretty! The staff was professional, patient, and made the custom cake exactly how she wanted it. I would certainly recommend... More

My family and I live in the Syracuse area and I often drive through Cortland for work. This is a great stop every time. They have a huge selection of pastries and everything we have tried is delicious. The decor is very "old school", the owners are almost always there, and seem very nice. You can tell that this is...
