I had not heard anything about this little Bakery until I saw it on Tripadvisor. I decided since I was in the area I would try this little business. Upon arrival the smell was wonderful. It had seating in the area for about 12 people. It was absolutely full with people enjoying wonderful bakery goods and just chatting. It was... More

Can't say too much good about it! From cupcakes to apple turnovers, honey buns, chocolate selections, muffins, etc. PLUS they cater! Provided side dishes and cupcakes for a huge birthday party and they were a big hit! Cheerful and helpful staff! Always fresh coffee to stop and sit and munch! Love it!

While the astray was OK the staff was downright surly. Thy didn't even look up when we went in and never smiled at all. We felt we were an inconvenience to them

We love this place. Try to go as much as possible but, sometimes it is just better to stay away. She has so much stuff we like, we always leave with a box full :-)! Muffins, cupcakes, cookies, doughnuts, pies, whatever your heart desires and it is tasty! Some of our favorites are the creme horns, peach/applie turnovers, long johns,... More

Large selection of treats for even the most selective of sweet tooth's. Absolutely, the best bakery in the area. From cupcakes to apple turnovers, honey buns, chocolate selections, muffins, etc... too many to recall. We always stop and get a few treats to take back home. Tried others in the area and not one compares. Make this a must on... More

This bakery has the BEST desserts and quite a cornucopia of sugary selections. From the frosting on the cupcakes to the flavors of boston creme to german chocolate, and some have filling inside the batter, too! The muffins are gigantic, the fruit pies are yummy, and cheesecake in a flavor or two all have my vote. The owner, Bobbie is... More

I've only been here once so far but will continue to come back in the future. The cost was fair and the two items I got were huge! I highly recommend their boston creme pie cupcake. My only complaint is that I couldn't buy everything that was available. It all looked wonderful.

We arrived on Saturday and The bakery closed at noon. We were running late and barely made the closing time. I was told that they would have waited for me to pick up the... More

We recently returned home from a trip to the Southport area. One of our regular stops is now The Confectionary. We dropped in Friday and there was a note that they would be closed over the weekend. We stocked up! It was all wonderful. We had cupcakes, donuts, and a nice variety of other things. The Black Forest Coffee Cake... More
