Wonderful food and atmosphere. Baking items were displayed so beautifully. Service was excellent. Parking great. Everyone made you feel so at home. I would recommend it to my friends and families. We live in Missouri and each time we are in the area we always...go by the bakery.More

What a fabulous bakery! Clean and inviting! Their cakes are top notch and best I've seen. If you want a donut with coffee or want them to create a cake for your special occasion this is the right place to go to.

This bakery does not disappoint in any way. Desserts are fantastic. The staff is always friendly. This bakery made my daughter's wedding cake and provided desserts for the wedding and guests provided only rave reviews for all of the desserts. I find myself making a...trip to Buford, just to go to the Baking Grounds. I've tried many other bakeries around the metro area and this one is excellent by comparison. Their pastry and dessert offerings are plentiful, and always fresh. Try it once, and you'll be hooked.More

We had a breakfast there on Saturday - it was okay. Cheesy eggs, grits and a biscuit with coffee. On a 5 scale it was a 3. The baked goods display was nice and looked well prepared but we didn't buy any of the goodies,...so I can't comment on that. Thing that disturbed me was the restroom was very unappealing and needs a makeover. Use your imagination ...More

The Baking Grounds has been my go for years when ordering specialty cakes or just need to grab a few treats, and they are consistently amazing. Not only are they beautiful but delicious. The staff is so welcoming and kind! The cafe is delicious and...with the variety of cupcakes, cookies, pastries, etc. I never leave empty handed. If you have not visited The Baking Grounds, highly recommend checking them out.More

Had variety of cupcakes. They looked good but the taste was very underwhelming. Buttercream frosting had waxy taste. The chocolate in the old fashioned cupcake didn’t even taste like chocolate. There was no filling in any of these either. Seemed like a very unimaginative approach...for a bakery. The Lemon and chocolate overload were a bit better in that they at least had a different (read: less waxy) taste. So instead of a one I’ll give two stars. Wouldn’t go here again.More

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
