“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

It is hard to find an old fashioned bakery like this - tons of great desserts, and fresh breads, jelly donuts, chocolate chip cookies, their famous flax bread, sandwiches ...everything you need for snacks at the beach!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

First of all it must be said that this is NOT a restaurant; so if you arrive wanting a sit down meal, you are out of luck. It is however this very small but magical bakery filled with, and I mean filled with, every kind of pastry, cake, pie, bread you can imagine. It is like being a kid in a candy store again for adults. There is always a line out the door in summer and when it is your turn it is so exciting! Be prepared to line up (but the line usually goes quickly). I cannot tell you what to have but I think their breads and any doughy items are best. They also have great egg salad and ham & swiss sandwiches, so yes you can get enough food to feed the family and go for a picnic on the beach. It is a destination in and of itself. GO!!!!!
They Even Have Gluten-Free Items as I believe I heard the owner say she has a wheat allergy.

“Wow good baked goods for those temptation eyes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Offshore provides a great service and great baking in one package. Experience shows in the finished product, whether it's butter tarts or any of their specialty breads. I personally like their cheese bread.
They also now offers a choice of gluten free and wheat free products, the wheat free brownies are awesome.
Good sandwiches, meat pies, and sausage rolls. Ake for an easy lunch as well.
Linesup do happen so be patient.

“for great butter tarts and flax bread”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Get there early. They sell out of mouth-watering pies, bread, and tarts by noon on busy days. Wonderful bakery. Don't go Mondays, it's closed.
