Very friendly service. Very good cheese cake. The strawberry cake is great. I would highly recommend this bakery.

It may not be a Starbuck but it served excellent latte. Location was convenient. Nice selection of goodies. Convenient when watching rowing regatta on the lake.

My experience was very different than the last two patrons. I had a cake done for my husband's 50th birthday and could not have been happier. The staff was helpful, owner was professional, and the cake was amazing and in the price range I expected to pay.

My son and I went in for coffee and a snack last Saturday. The girl and guy working the counter were so unprofessional and rude. They were preoccupied playing in their phones. The coffe I had tasted like dirt and the pastries tasted like they were bought at BJs. Actually if they were it might have tasted better. Not sure... More

Wow. Where to begin. Had cakes here before. We actually had a fun birthday cake done up last October. Came out really fun. Over priced for sure but we got what we wanted. Fast forward to march of this year for a baby shower cake. My wife and I and our son stopped in on a Saturday a couple weeks... More

Found this gem on the way to work. Their Banana Foster iced lattes are delicious. They also have a very tempting case of the most decadent looking cupcakes and pastries. I have only tried the Apple Crumb Cake to date which is amazing. Service is great there too.

My boyfriend and I simply roamed in here one day because it is right down the road from our apartment. We have been there two more times since. Every time we go the lattes (iced or hot) are really good. I've never had the cupcakes, but the pastries, bagels, and egg sandwiches are decent. The only thing I would say... More

I had been to the Bean Counter on Highland Street and loved it. The only drawback was the crowding. The Bean Counter in Shrewsbury has the same quality pastries and coffees. It has a small space for one to be seated, but felt very roomy. It is bright and sunny and you can relax and have a conversation with minimal... More

I've searched far and wide for delicious vegan cupcakes, and The Bean Counter definitely comes in first! Try the chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting - I promise the vegan cupcake is even better than the non-vegan! Not much space/ambiance for hanging out here, so best to grab your delectable treats on the go!

This place has, hands down, the best pastry in central MA. Also, fabulous coffee. A nice place to meet someone for brunch or coffee because it is out of the way and quiet (despite being on Route 9). Only drawback is that it's on the eastbound side, and if you're on the westbound side you'll need to figure out how... More
