Everything offered here is homemade -- I believe daily. Don't pass up the turtle bars (caramel is delicious) or the pecan pie bars. The pecan pie bars are even better than eating a pie; very addicting. They have a wide variety of fresh baked items including pound cake, large cookies, and bar cookies.

This place is supposed to be a famous and favorite pastry shop, but the pastry on offer during a recent visit was limited to lemon bars, brownies, and cakes. Not exactly World-class sophistication in the pastry arena. Not worth a trip.

I'm sorry you had such a negative experience when visiting our bakery. I would like to clear up a couple of misconceptions. We have never advertised or promoted our bakery as a "pastry shop" in the 6+ years we have been in business. Additionally, we don't consider ourselves as having "world-class sophistication". Our business is a classically simple Southern family-owned... More

An interesting sort of place that appeals to most everyone. One can taste the aroma it presents one as they come through the door. I was not able to get a cake made by the person who usually does mine, and this fine place was recommended to me. When i picked up the cake it was s simply like seeing... More

While waiting to be let in our cabin on the river, stopped in for a snack, coffee and hummingbird cake, wonderful! We sat in an alcove room with Windows looking out onto the town surrounded by a selection of craft and decorating items for sale.

Stopped by for baked goods and so glad I did. I got the lemon ice box pieces and a pecan gooey cheesecake and they were scrumptious. I loved the little kitchen that produces these delicious baked goods, the little old house is precious and she has a lot of cute interesting things to see and buy. My only suggestion would... More

It's a small bakery. What I mean is it is a tiny kitchen in a converted farm house with 2 food display cases. Don't let the size imply lack of quality. They make the best key lime bars I've ever tasted!

Great little cafe! Only issue is to make up your mind about what cake to pick, there are so many and they are soooo good! Hope to return again soon!

Such a wonderful surprise to find this bakery inside the gift shop. Impossible to leave the shop without buying a brownie once you've smelled the delicious treats just inside the front door.
