On a recent trip to Salem, Mass., my husband and I found ourselves lost! We stopped in at the "Coffee Time Bake Shop" for some directions. While my husband was asking for directions, I was buying one of everything in sight! Cookies, muffins, pastries of all sorts...homemade goodness. We enjoyed those delicious goodies for the rest of the week. If... More

I had a Bismarck, which is what I heard they are known for. I'm mad I only got the small one! It was fantastic! I also had a scone, that was delicious! The employees were very helpful in answering my many questions, and the coffee was good too.

Great pastries, especially the Bismark creams. We tried it all: donuts, coffee, whoopee pies, cookies. The only things that were so-so were the breakfast sandwiches on bagels. The bagels were fine, just skimpy on the egg and bacon in them. But they still deserve 5 stars for the baked goods and coffee.

If you are near Salem - this is a must stop treat IMHO!!! All flavors of Bismarcks are fantastic - the cream is outstanding - very fresh and the donuts are so light - a very memorable indulgence!
