This is a great place to go for a birthday. Truly awesome atmosphere. Storybook decor and fancy dishes. Cakes and other treats are pricey because they use particular ingredients, like Belgium chocolate. Pieces of cake are HUGE. Honestly, I had to take half of mine...More

The name of this establishment may be the only thing that could be considered simple and basic. At the same time, it’s perfect. Everything from the décor to staff uniforms have been carefully choreographed to transport visitors to the perfect venue for tea parties, bridal...More

What a wonderful setting to have light lunch and dessert with friends! I thoroughly enjoyed my Cobb salad which had an excellent lemon vinaigrette. The cakes were world-class! We really enjoyed the red velvet cake especially!

Came to this spot on a whim. Seems that Oprah put them on the map by recommending one of their cakes on a “favorite things” segment. Well, it lives up to the hype. Had the macaroons, mint chocolate cake (3 huge layers), and the tiramisu...More

Gwendolyn Rogers has created a storybook restaurant in a cottage. When you walk through the French doors, the sparkling chandeliers, antiqued mirrors, French inspired furniture, beautiful seasonal decorations and the rich aroma of the French chocolate cakes baking in the oven immediately greets you. Enjoy French pressed coffee with a slice of homemade cake or pie. Enjoy a cup of warm sipping chocolate topped with fresh whipped cream and a warm cookie right out of the oven. She offers an incredible lunch of ‘The Best Quiche You Will Ever Have’, homemade soups, salades, sandwiches, even a true French Croque Monsieur (Fall menu only). Oprah Winfrey chose The Cake Bake Shop for her famous 'O' List in the April edition of 'The Oprah Magazine ' 2018.
