You walk in and it gives you that old time feeling of a bakery years ago.

I have ordered from here and walked in . Every visit has been great and the bake goods are wonderful.

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 the reviews for their pizza I... 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

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.
