Nothing better

You will NOT find any better cake or pastries anywhere (and I have tried them all over the world!) The frosting on the cakes are to die for. I enjoy the donuts that have a ring of icing and chocolate on the top. Donut holes are delicious. We get a cake for everyone's birthday and luckily we... read more

My favorite is the cream filled dough nut holes. Many different varieties of pastries and the icing is the best anywhere. Only down side is if you come in before 11 a.m.you'll usually get day old pastries. Tho they are still very good, would much prefer fresh. You would think if they open at 8 a.m. they would have some... More

Every year as long as I can remember, (I'm 55) it's been a family tradition to buy whoever in the family who had a birthday a cake from Fancy Pastry. Their cakes are untouchable. We recently moved to Myrtle Beach and I drove to Lexington to Fancy Pastry for my own birthday cake last week since they don't deliver. Their... More

The deserts are typical and the icing is extremely sweet, if that's what you like you'll love this place. Its a little to sweet for me but some of my friends love it.

I'm not sure why the other reviewers have such a different opinion of this bakery but my experience was not very good. Maybe my standards are to high coming from the Phila. area where there are decadent Italian bakeries in every town. I was surprised how few bakeries there are in the Lexington area. I needed a Hello Kitty cake... More

So many wonderful pastries! I highly recommend the cherry custard pie and the cream horns. Everything is fresh and delicious. The young ladies who serve you at the counter are very friendly and efficient. They also have hand-dipped ice cream. They make birthday cakes too! It's wonderful!

This is a full service Pastry Shop that I have used for years. The butter cream icing is great and the cakes always look and taste fresh. They have a nice selection of cookies and pastries and you can ask to have the cookies iced for an extra treat! Prices are reasonable.
