About
The Bahamas Rum Cake Factory story begins in the heart of downtown Nassau, Bahamas in the year 2000. George Bates, originally from the United Kingdom founded a recipe that would inspire his “Original” Rum Cake. Everyone loved his recipe so much that he decided to open a small Rum Cake shop, a store that has since then grown into the most favorite brand of Rum Cake in The Bahamas. Today, the Bahamas Rum Cake Factory still sits in the same location it started at, and has created a culture so irresistibly delicious that in 2014 it was recognized by the state as the Official Rum Cake of The Bahamas. Loaded with our top-secret ingredients, baked to perfection, and gently marinated in our signature brand of Ole Nassau Bahamian Rum, our cakes have become not just a dessert, but also an important part of a new lifestyle for both Bahamians and tourists.

You can't visit the Bahamas without sampling their rum cakes and this is the spot to get them!

The store is small and the second you walk in, you can smell the cakes baking! What a greeting!

The staff is friendly and courteous, the samples are plentiful, the prices are great, and the flavors will appeal to nearly everyone.

A small rum cake is $7 but four is only $20.99. What a deal!

The banana rum cake is my favorite, but the original is great, too.

I also picked up Irish cream and pineapple. Sadly, I didn't see chocolate because I'm a chocoholic but you can also order online and delivery is only $10!

This is a must visit!

About a 5 min walk from The Baha Retreat Spa (review posted) and the Green Parrot restaurant (Review posted).
I don’t think this is the actual factory, but just a retail outlet. Cakes were yumm and boozy. There were 6 flavors including Original, Pina Colada, Coconut, Honey, Amaretto, and Key Lime. We got a travel pack (6 for $40, and we were given a complimentary shot of Ricardo Rum. I don’t drink hard liquor usually, and it hit me soo hard that I was laughing hysterically for a few minutes. The manager/owner of the store was friendly and helpful. He gave us a taste of two flavors that helped us decide which ones to buy. The cakes were amazinggg.. Soo moist..
Unique and economical gifts. They even ship to anywhere the US.. 😊 😊 Christmas gifts for 2021 is ready!!

Omg we heard so much about this rum cake that before we head to the airport we stopped by. Beautiful building with lovely workers . They gave us samples of the cake and I immediately bought over $100 worth of cake for family and friend back at home. They have original, pina colada, Irish cream, banana and so many more lovely flavors. A must place to come and shop to bring back a taste of Bahamian flavor. Enjoy thank me later

Came here on tour of Nassau. Tried their free samples and decided to try a variety of 4 different little cakes. We've been disappointed before purchasing Tortugas brand Rum Cakes from trying samples and finding dried out discs when we got home. So we gave it a shot. Opened one up and was pleasently surprised at how fresh tasting and high in quality these cakes were. The rum did not disappoint, it was not a weak rum cake nor was it ridiculously overly flavored with rum. This was a "Cinnamon Rum Cake" with a undertone of Coconut? My daughter and I thought so.
Our visit to the rum shop was nice, people were kind and willing to please. Shop and work area was clean and neat. Sacks of flour stored off the floor and the place looked tidy.

First off, the cakes they make here are delicious. Buy one. We also had several small free samples of different flavors. You can see the production area and some workers through some glass panels. But, in the end, it's a bakery. You've seen these. We walked from downtown, a half mile or so, and you realize this is not a great area. Abandoned buildings. Lots of trash on the ground.

We had a brief introduction and then got to sample a pecan and a piña colada rum cake. There were so many varieties and of course we bought one to take home.
Should have bought more since you can keep them for some time in and out of the fridge.

We walked here from downtown Nassau to buy some cakes to take back home with us. It is a bit of a walk, and once you get a couple of blocks away from the touristy areas, the neighborhood is run down a bit. Coming from Chicago, we're used to it, and we never felt like we were in danger or anything like that. It is a fair walk (10 to 15 minutes one way) from downtown Nassau. You can talk a taxi or a jitney bus as well.

Cakes were delicious. They come vaccum-sealed and packaged, so you can take them through airport security in a carry-on or checked baggage. The gave out free samples as well, and the cakes were delicious. Like everywhere in the Bahamas, they accept US dollars.

The building was maybe 24x20 and the cake was very high. The cake can fit into the palm of your hands.

This is a must stop on the sightseeing tour. The store is small, but the regular rum cake is fantastic.

As a resident of Nassau for several years, we discovered this invitingly friendly Rum Cake shop back in 2006 where Englishman George and I shared many a happy memory of UK living, he relating how he'd concocted the perfect sponge cake in England, bringing the recipe to the Bahamas where, after GENEROUSLY adding top shelf island rums,his award winning and exquisitely succulent BAHAMAS RUM CAKE
soon garnered rave revues form locals - who know their rum.
Every trip back to Nassau, we stop, socialize with friendly staff, sample a few new concoctions and enjoy native island banter.
Beware imitations. A friend brought a competitive rum cake back from a holiday last week, I defy you to taste any rum...!
