Delicious - for early birds!

This is a great little local bakery - we dropped by several times during our trip! All of their goods are made fresh daily and if you do not get there early everything will be gone! The atmosphere inside is really cute, and if you have time to relax and sit you should! I recommend... Everything! I... read more

Glazed doughnuts, Apple fritters, cupcakes, orange coffee cake, cherry/cream cheese danish, brownie....just to name a few. Always a nice selection of goodies to take back home with us. Only complaint is the Apple fritters weren't that great. Needs more apple. But, we'll be back next year! Always fresh....they're baking up goodies every time we stop in. Seating, cute shop. You...

We got a Sundrop cake (lemon cake with key lime filling) for my grandmother's birthday and it was absolutely amazing!! Everyone agreed it was the best cake ever!

We are frequent visitors to Southport, NC and OKI and have purchased small bakery items from here but this was our first cake for a birthday. It was outstanding.

Wonderful bakery. My husband and daugther surprised me with a cake on our anniversary. So whenever you are in the Southport /Oak Island area, stop in.

We special ordered an anniversary wedding type cake over the phone to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. My dad had big hopes (bigger than what was possible for buttercream in the summer) and Bobby worked with us to get the perfect cake for our suprise treat for my mother. She took the time to explain the limitations of what he... More

For the past year, I've been coming to Southport for business and the highlight of my day is stopping in at The Confectionery for a sweet breakfast treat. Bobbie, the owner, always takes a break from stirring or blending the many crumb cakes, pastries, cookies or wedding cakes she's creating to say hello and give me a welcomed hug. I... More

I wanted to love this place. I heard that the sweets were delicious but everything that we tried was just okay. I stopped in with my three kids and we purchased two boxes of treats. The prices are fantastic. My two boxes of goodies totaled $20 and included an assortment of cookies, cupcakes and muffins. The flavors were bland. Both... More

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 take like mom used to make because those are the old... 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.
