The absolute BEST bakery around! You will find some wonderful one of a kind pastries and I don't know anyone who has not absolutely LOVED what they had here.

We 4 loved this cute bakery off the square in Newburyport. In the morning as you walk in, the aroma of baking greets you and draws you over to the attractive and brimming cases of delicious looking baked goods. We settled on hermits, large browned butter shortbread cookies and molasses ginger cookies, for an afternoon treat. Later in the week... More

Love the minimal tall cakes that BBC makes. I ordered a custom spice cake for a party. The owner was most accommodating. She came up with a wonderful seasonal and spicy cake. It was delicious... but perhaps it had too much frosting between the many layers that took away from the cake's excellent taste. Quality ingredients.

I have only shopped here once but was very impressed with the quality. I bought a pumpkin pie for our Thanksgiving hosts, and it was beautifully done and delicious! I would definitely visit this bakery again.

Was passing through Newburyport today and needed a sweet fix. My husband got a wonderful fruit tart, and I got a chocolate cupcake with cream cheese and coconut frosting. For some reason, my cupcake was wet on the bottom, like it sat in a puddle of water. Fortunately I was eating over the plastic container it came in, as it... More

A friend recommended we stop there when visiting Newburyport. After perusing numerous scrumptious looking times, we went away with a pork pie and a fruit tart. They were absolutely delicious and worth the price.

The fruit tart was amazing. My husband had the pork pot pie and said it was delicious. We also picked up dog treats, which they seemed to love. If in the area I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to drop by and pick up something sweet.
