They make amazing cinnamon buns, chocolate eclairs, cakes and cookies. Highly recommended for any event like birthdays , weddings, church gatherings and such. The case is huge and there are so many yummy items that you might want to invest in a larger vehicle so...you can carry more things home.More

The Baking Grounds have been a long time favorite spot of mine. Great selections of breakfast & lunch dishes but there sweets and pastries takes the CAKE(pun intended).. They make anything from birthday cakes to wedding cakes or just delicious desserts in general!! The Baking...Grounds are a staple in the Buford Community and I recommend them 100%!!More

The place is so adorable and baked goods are beautiful. - But I’ve eaten there several times and it’s nothing spectacular—in fact, I’d say disappointing. I ordered a Turkey/avocado/bacon club. It was 2 slices of bread with a smear of watered down avocado spread, 2...thin slices of round Turkey-like out of a Buddings meat package and 2 half- cooked bacon. Tasted like nothing. Chips came with it. $10.95. ! My friend ordered a Reuben that she said was good and got a side of broccoli salad (an upcharge of 2.50) and a tea. She was shocked at $17 for this meal. Other than being cute…the food lacks.More

Absolutely amazing food, great baked goods, and phenomenal atmosphere! Chicken salad was homemade and the baked goods were unforgettable!

Whenever we are in the area, we make a point of stopping by for some sweet treats. The cookies and cakes are so delightful to see, beautifully decorated with colorful details. They taste as good as they look. The service was friendly and helpful, carefully...packing my selections for the trip home.More

I have eaten here many times and every time I also purchase a lot of the sweets and breads. Never had a problem until I wanted to place an order for custom cupcakes. It was not enough notice to get something special which I totally...understood. I was prepared to order standard cupcakes and use my cupcake liners to go along with the theme of the party. A young girl was trying to help me when another lady got on the phone and was completely rude and unhelpful. She made me feel like I was wasting their time. I say all of this to say to you, don’t waste YOUR time at Baking Grounds.More
