Best cake ever

We are Canadians that got married in lake George ny in 2010. We had our cake made there and it was absolutely fabulous. Honnestly the best cake we've ever had. Guests all gave us compliments on it too. Every year we go back and have cupcakes made of the same kind of cake.

I couldn't wait to try some of their baked goods but unfortunately was disappointed. Their stuff was just okay. I expected - OMG this is so good. One visit was enough for me.

Not a place for a high-protein/low carb meal, but this is a bakery in the real sense. We picked up a couple of goodies and enjoyed them thoroughly. The women who work there (and maybe bake there?) were knowledgeable and nice.

This is how bakeries used to be, fresh goods, family recipes and great service. This tiny little place puts out the best pies, eclairs, breads, cakes. Do not go to the supermarkets for your baked goods. Treat yourself.

We wanted to return to get egg creams (so few places make them any more, or have even heard of them!) after we had the mocha latte and other coffee drinks we had, but never got a chance--will definitely look forward to trying the sumptuous looking pastries, and to getting another seat on the sweet outside patio to people watch...

Stopped by here every night for a delicious treat. Their pastries are the best. No trip to Lake George is complete without a stop here.
