Thanksgiving week visit to the island.

In the heart of The Strand, this bakery packs in the locals and tourists alike. Had a wide variety of their good as my friends bought lots of treats. The apple strudel was a standout. Everything was very good.

I'd read on a GF app about the gf options at this bakery. While they do have a few items labeled GF, they are in the same showcase as all the other pastries and baked items. Cross contamination would be probable. I left without taking any chances.

I stopped in for a cookie and left with a whole quiche for dinner. Everything in the bakery case is tempting and delicious.

Found this while sightseeing. the coconut macaroons were the best out of all my choices. Hubby liked the key lime tart as a cold dessert. Little steep but nice quaint place. No seating inside though but there are benches outside on the side.

I have tried them several times and just not very impressed. I was told they are the best bakery on the island, so I gave them a few visits to see if anything changed. Maybe the custom cakes are the talk of the town; but the stuff in the shelves was OK. I had better stuff from Kroger's bakery.

We had eaten at Mosquito Cafe and crossed the side street to Patty Cakes Bakery. I picked up a couple of ribbon tied cellophane bags of the Pecan Butterball Cookies. They are soooo delicious, I could not stop eating them, but I will have to as they were more expensive than I expected. The cinnamon rolls looked mouth-watering, I will... More

I love, love, love their almond petit fours. if i could only eat one dessert for the rest of my life, that might be it! Their lemon bomb cake balls are also really good. Everything i have tried there is good, actually, but those two things are my favorite.

Be warned there is no seating inside-just one bench outside. Cranberry muffin was excellent. My daughter had a blueberry muffin and said it was very good. My husband wanted the apple strudel. You had to purchase one large piece for $9.99. The staff cut it into four nice sized pieces for us. Sugar cookie was rather bland. Staff was very... More
