“Everything was Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We stopped in at the bakery with friends on a Saturday. It was extremely busy, but the staff did their best to serve everyone in order and to fulfill our requests as quickly as possible. We ordered a variety of cupcakes and they were all exquisite.

“"I'll have one of each, please."”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

It's difficult to make a decision in this charming bakery. Everything looks so wonderful! And everything I've tried has been very tasty. I can especially recommend the grown-up Ho-Ho's and the Intense Brownies. The exterior is pastel -- mostly pink -- and the front window is lined with vintage toy ovens. Inside you'll find unique gifts as well as some of the best bakery sweets on the North Shore. They are closed on Sunday and Monday. At the end of each week, unsold product is donated to local food pantries and charities.

“Hit or Miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

When they first opened was very pleased with their wares and have purchased many bakery items. But I have also been disappointed on several occasions having purchased a small cake and cupcakes finding them a bit dry. So mixed bag for me.
