In my travels I sometimes hear about an OMG place. So naturally I try to fit it in, if time permits, to see what the noise is all about. Oftentimes I don't get the same reaction as others but, then again, I'm pickier than most....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.
