Died....and went to Heaven!!

Ok. I know I'm really late at writing this review, but better late than never. I actually discovered this gem while on a business trip to Murphreesboro and am so glad I did. Their selection of sweets is quite broad so there is something for everyone. The store is cute, clean and the display cases... read more

I think some things may be better than others and just depend on your individual tastes. The staff has always been helpful and attentive when I visited. I do not like their peanut butter cookies (which are usually my favorite) but the snickerdoodle cookies are yummy! The blackberry spice cake is also delicious. Prices are average for a bakery. Keep... More

I remember my husband bringing home one of Julia's Turtle Cheesecakes when I was about 7 months pregnant with our now 2 yr old daughter . It looked amazing ! Decadent swirls of chocolate and Carmel atop a fluffy cheese cake center . It was what I wanted how did he know ? So of course with no regards for... More

Bought a birthday cake for my 10 year old daughter and was disappointed. Save your money and hit Publix bakery as their cake is great and it cost 1/4 of the price.

I used to think this was a great bakery. Then I started noticing the snobbishness of the staff and the lackluster of flavors in the baked goods. When you walk in you think "Ooh, ahh" with all the different choices but they are mostly hit or miss. Oh, and one time I came in asking if I could do a... More

I have to agree with another reviewer. The baked goods look really great, but the flavor does not rise to the same level. I too kept going back, trying a different item. One example is the coconut cream pie. It was on the bland side. I expected a rich creamy filling with a and fresh coconut taste. The pie crust... More

The appearance of the items in Julia's is impressive. Everything is so pretty and perfectly created. But I have tried numerous items over many, many visits. I have yet to find anything that I would go back for a second time. I'm running out of options now. I don't like the donuts, cakes, pastries, pies, muffins, turnovers, or even cookies.... More

Julia's products turn up quite often in the medical offices that surround the bakery. They are the go-to place for that quick "thinking of you" box of goodies for the office workers. But I'm not sure I see the attraction. Both my wife and I feel their baked goods are dry and flavorless, and they lather on too much sugary... More
