Saw this bake shop on food channel's guilty pleasures and it became a motivation to drive 2 hours to experience it ourselves. We were not disappointed. The ambience, THE CAKE - Earl's court chocolate is to die for.

This is a world class bakery and the location is a perfect walking distance from other good restaurants. Skip the dinner desert and head to the cake bake to get your mind blown.

Great food great cake and wonderful service. The only downside was the lack of parking I the area. Allow time to find a spot when you go!

It is not cheap to dine at cake bake but the delicious sweets and pastel pink interior shop is worth a visit. Fun and whimsical for a cup of tea and slice of cake with a friend.

I waited for twenty minutes while four serves attended to other things between themselves. I thought customers came first. Then one of the managers acted like my being there was a bother. I left and will never be back. Too snooty for me.

Are you kidding me????? This place is like a fairy tale. If you like shabby chic that's more chic than shabby and you like dessert this place is for you. It's beautiful. I loved every second I was in here. From the second I walked in I felt like I was in a dream. It was ethereal. The wait to... More

Went last summer and loved it! Went yesterday and prices have increased. A slice of cake and two brownies was $25. I've eaten in actual bakeries in France for much less.

I have been here several times. The first time I went, I thought it was expensive, but not outrageous and that was with the purchase of lunch and desserts for two. I was there last night, and I am sure the prices have gone up due to the popularity and press reports. The food is good, but not the current... More

Came in with my daughter without a reservation and was treated as an inconvenience and a group of 5 that came in behind us was seated first also without a reservation. As we waited for a waitress to come by the other table of 5 was served and had their order taken. After 20 minutes and no one even coming... More

I can not apologize enough for your experience. Unfortunately we are extremely small and have a hard time accommodating how busy we are. That is no excuse for the lack of service. I would kindly ask if you can let me know what day you were here and what time so I can see who was working that day. I... More

Stopped here for dessert to celebrate my husband's birthday. It's tucked away along a narrow street but there is available parking in the back; just pull down the driveway. When you step inside, it feels like you have stepped into a different era. The decor is magical and very elegant. We chose to sit outside and enjoy the summer evening.... More

Every Cake Has A Story. When you walk through the French doors, the rich aroma of the French and Belgian chocolates immediately greets you. The Cake Bake Shop is a place that will fill up your senses. Have a 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. You can see the locally sourced farm-fresh eggs and the organic milks and creamers nestled in the cooler. Behind the counter, master bakers gently sieve non-bromated flours from Vermont, aluminum-free baking powders & sugars and large pots of French & Belgian Chocolate melting on the stove. Once the oven dings, everything at the Cake Bake Shop has come together to create a truly savory experience. Choose from our list of the best wines & champagnes to accompany any of our cakes, cakelettes, pies & desserts.
We make all of our desserts every day from scratch with the best butter, chocolates, fruits, eggs & creams.
All this is experienced in our sweet little cottage that has been remodeled into a elegant, sophisticated bake shop with our beautiful French chandeliers and French influenced furniture. The Cake Bake Shop is the perfect place to spend the best part of your day. Let us be part of your story.
