The birthday cake we ordered was not only BEAUTIFUL but it was melt in your mouth awesome! We came to Port Aransas for a vacation and celebrated my Daughter's birthday while we were there. Tammy delivered it to our hotel - it really made this birthday special. I could not say enough good things to express our appreciation and enjoyment.

Tammy's cakes are absolutely the most beautiful and yummiest cakes on the island. She makes everything from scratch and her creativity is amazing. We've used her for several events and they are always delicious and beautiful! Delightful lady and cakes!

So good even your mother will enjoy it (as did mine)! Great coffee selection too. Very clean. Run by a local family. Lots of baked goods but their breakfast is also wonderful.

Bundy's made the coolest wedding cake. Looked great & tasted awesome. They also did the flowers for the wedding which were beautiful. They were easy to work with as we were planning the wedding from Michigan.

I look forward to going to Bundy's every Sunday after church. The Bread puddin is to die for! I also enjoy the scrambled eggs with biscuit and gravy. The coffee is really good and fresh. If it is your first visit, you can help yourself to the coffee and proceed to the register to order. Unfortunately, no one is greeting... More

This is a really cute little bakery, breakfast, and lunch place. We arrived at about 11am on a Saturday to find a few people in line ahead of us and they were running out of lots of things - pigs in a blanket, strawberry smoothies, muffins...to be fair, we were on the edge of lunch time, but it was still...

They took 45 mins until we asked about our food. People that came 15 mins after us got their food before us and they had 3 more people than us. When we went up there they said they only wrote down 1 of our orders but still charged us for two. The tables weren't cleaned and no one checked up... More
