Genuinely homemade goodies!

I love this place! They have a tremendous variety of baked goods--cupcakes, breakfast pastries, brownies, cookies, Danish, fritters, pies, cakes, you name it! I spotted a vintage cookbook (one that I have and love) on the counter and had a nice conversation with one of their bakers. Their foods... read more

The Confectionary is a very pleasant place to be what with the homey feeling, the wonderful smells, and the helpful people -- customers and staff. Try the turnovers as they are very light and tasty.

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.
