Description: Stepping through the door of a Cakes-n-Creams Dessert Parlor is like taking a trip back in time to the fabulous 50’s.Of course, an important part of the 50’s was the 45 record and we use these as accent pieces throughout our shops. The Wurlitzer Jukebox, another Cakes-n-Creams trademark, has a special place in our store, just as it did in the soda shops of that bygone era.Cakes-n-Creams makes a commitment to serving a quality product with excellent service. Customer satisfaction is the #1 goal. Our mission and that of our cast members are to ensure that each customer that visits a Cakes-n-Creams location will have a positive experience. Whether it be quality of food, friendliness of service or dining atmosphere, satisfying the individual customer is an integral part of our success. Remember- success is measured by repeat and satisfied customers, and after 30 years in business, we have had families come back for over 29 years, and they still make this their meeting place every year...

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

The staff was great when we converged on them with 22 people on a rainy day. They were so friendly, and the service was great, as was the food..

“We eat here every visit!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Love the atmosphere and the food is good. Best milk shakes and banana splits in Branson. We have made it a family tradition to visit it every time we are in Branson.

“Love the funnel cakes and banana splits!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Being a child of the 50's and 60's, I love this place! It may seem a bit cheesy to some, but I love the atmosphere and the food is good! I especially enjoy the funnel cakes and the banana splits! Hubby and I make this a "must stop" place each time we're in Branson!

“Average food and cheesy atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We had lunch here in June 2014. I was really looking forward to it as I love 50's-style diners. Unfortunately, Cakes & Creams disappointed.

The atmosphere was cheesy and over the top (compared to Mel's Hard Luck Diner, for example, which was authentic). The atmosphere was not a a big deal, however the food was just average.

Our food, burgers, chicken sandwich, fries and onion rings, were all just okay, not bad but nothing special. Our funnel cake did not have enough powered sugar so it was fairly bland.

The service was from your average late teen and 20-somethings - they added nothing to the personality of the place.

We didn't try the ice cream, but why would we? Blue Bunny sings were plastered all over the ice cream cases. Why would I go to a cheesy 50's diner to buy what I could buy at Walmart? Not sure why they so proudly advertised the ice cream brand.

I can't really recommend Cakes & Creams. It's not a bad place, just average, but Mel's Hard Luck Diner is so much better.
