very good sweets

Too many varieties to describe. But we tried several and not a bad one in the bunch. It was hard to resist once we got started.

This little bakery is hidden inside a gas station that I have driven by for years! Happened to stop for gas and left with scones (FABULOUS) and a cheese Danish. They were giving out samples of their wheat rolls....shouldn't have left without them! Very friendly staff! We will be back!

Had heard about this place so stopped by for a piece of Chocolate Cake to go. Portion size was adequate. Now, this thing was as Dry as a Powder House Rat. Not good but I guess being inside a gas station is good though so you can get a quart of oil to wash it down with. Don't waste your... More

Neighbor asked me to pick up some cupcakes she had ordered for her husband's birthday. The price was way more than I was expecting. The lady behind the display case seemed like she could care less about helping me, then the other lady at the register finally asked if she could assist me and then went to get the order.... More

Great food, friendly service. Come see them when you go to Glen Rose, you won't be disappointed. One of the best bakeries this side of the Rio Grande. Service was great, it's all well worth the stop.

The only thing we bought here was some pastries, which they are famous for. They are well worth the stop.

We tried this place based on the rave reviews. My wife is a baker, and I dont understand what the fuss is about. Either the cupcakes are iced with storebought canned icing or the baket has managed to perfectly replicate that hideous stuff. The regular buttercreme was fine, but the chocolate tasted canned. the cakes were dry and not tasty.... More

Before we made our trip to Glen Rose, we stopped at a French Bakery in Dallas to get a few goodies. While in Glen Rose we came across Barnard Street Bakery. I will tell you the truth....the baked goods were 100 times better than the "french" stuff we picked up in Dallas. They decorate and create the VERY best cupcakes... More
