Just your average bakery.

Nothing special. There are not that many bakeries to choose from in SPA. I mean the cupcakes are ok. The place is nice with nice people. But the Spartan Bakery is just as good and costs less. Maybe I'm spoiled because I have been to big bakeries in some big cities that are much better.

After a warm southern greeting, you can look at all the selections in the bakery and try to decide how many items you would like to eat.....careful - it's hard to pick just one! I've tried many of the cupcakes and cookie selections, and they are all very good - the staff is friendly, the baked items are good, the... More

I'm glad Spartanburg has a place like this. It's easy to dash in and pick something up, and the variety of choices will keep you coming back again and again. It's a very friendly and warm atmosphere.

Excellent flavor combination. I wish the cupcakes were bigger for the price. Nice little local place to grab a cupcake and coffee. Good seating too.

Their cupcakes are to die for! This is where I plan to buy my Birthday cake. My two children beg to go by to just get a cupcake when we are downtown.

Everything Liz bakes is wonderful. This is by far the best bakery in town. If you need an impressive cake, this is the place,

Went to Cakehead on two occasions. Pros - Very nice staff, good location. Cons - the cupcakes are NOT GOOD! Example: frostings with "off" flavors, as if they picked up an odor in the cooler from some other products, a chocolate cupcake that tasted like it was from a mix (maybe that's OK, but not at these prices!), unimpressive presentation....

Everything in the cakehead bakeshop is outstanding but their cheesecake is by far my favorite! Topped with the fruit of your choice it is a fabulous eating experience. For those who know the famous Juniors cheesecake from New York - The cakehead cheeecake is 1000 xs better !!! For chocolate lovers I highly recommend the chocolate raspberry cake.

Honestly, the cupcakes are good, but they are not the best I've had. I love the location though! Spartanburg needed this =)
