My family has been getting cakes, cupcakes, treats, and so much more from this bakery for at least 10 years. Their chocolate cake is the best I have ever had. Their Strawberry cake and Italian Cream are amazing as well. If you are looking for...something for breakfast, I recommend their sticky buns or cinnamon rolls!!! My sister and I ordered a platter to have for Christmas morning last year. And of course, you cannot leave without getting your dozen of sugar cookies, AMAZING. I could go on (Chicken salad, etc.) , but this family bakery delivers top quality baked goods and great, friendly service. For me, there is no bakery that can compare.... My sister and I drive from Lexington for their desserts.More

We were traveling through the area and stopped here. Due to COVID, we had to park and call for service. Someone came out with disposable menu and took our order. Mind you, it was HOT sitting in a car on asphalt waiting on our meal...but SO worth it. The food was fantastic! The gentleman who served us, asked if it was our first time there and since it was, he added a few cookies to our order. OMG! Those cookies were amazing. Nice staff, amazing food!More

Absolutely wonderful food and desserts! Award winning bakery/ cafe. Limited seating. They also cater events and ship their goodies. Friendly and efficient staff and the owner is very involved with the day to day operation. Best ingredients used to make this a Must Stop Destination!

We shared a slice of the Italian Cream Cake. It was so very good. Then we took home a package of their sugar cookies. Absolutely the best sugar cookie ever! Chewy and soft, and so good!

Stopped in for a few minutes to enjoy a coffee....and could not resist a pastry. Was able to find a quiet spot in the back to get online and check email while enjoying a cup of coffee between meetings. The staff was very friendly....I recommend...it for anyone passing through.More

We were in town visiting friends and stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. So glad we did. We were seated quickly and brought small pieces of a bluberry lemon scone and a sausage and cheese scone. Ended up buying the sausage ones to take...with us they were so good. The sandwiches were excellent and very filling, neither of us were able to finish them. They even brought us a cookie to try and it was fantastic as well. And everything was very reasonably priced. Thank you for an excellent lunch - and a couple of breakfasts the next days!More

This is such a pleasant surprise in a small town. The baked goods are legendary, the quiche is beyond delicious, too. Don't be in a hurry when you go for lunch, service is excellent, but a little slow, mostly as a result of their personal...attention to their guests.More

The food is good, it has a lot of pastries and regular lunch. I had the cinnamon roll and it was amazing. The other pastries like their scones are also very good. It has a cute little seating place so it isn’t just fast food,...even though they do serve food quickly.More
