Very few bakery items to choose from. Bought a few cookies. Half of them were burnt. Noticed some good looking mini quiches to buy and cinnamon buns, but otherwise, very lacking in items to pick from

Great cinnamon and sticky buns. Recently had an issue when I walked in on a Sunday morning and asked for 5 cinnamon buns (this has never happened before). So, if you are considering ordering more than 4 buns call the day before.

Wish I had known about this bakery from when I first began visiting the Cape. Wow. Sticky buns are SO good along with a large array of other pastries, breads, take-out & bake yourself real meals. They make everything on site and you can surely taste the difference.

Always friendly staff, always fresh baked goodies, and a few treats you can take back to your room and heat up for lazy dinner watching night fall on the ocean.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. We bought ham and cheese croissants, a blueberry cheese and a almond croissants. They all were so yummy. Still hot , fresh out of the oven. It can't get any better.

This is a great small bakery with a very diverse selection of baked goods. It's awesome to see them baking everything right in front of you! The sticky buns are to die for!! Just found this gem this year and we will be making it a regular stop!

This is a small place so come EARLY if you want choices. Come after 9 AM and you get what's left. That said, I stop here every time I visit the Cape and I have never had any bad experiences. The help is very courteous (provided you are) and they do their best to provide you with what they have.... More

As a local, I can attest that Island Bakery does not disappoint. The homemade jelly donuts have stolen my ❤️. Please do not miss an opportunity to visit and taste their amazing sticky buns, pastries, old fashioned donuts, chocolate croissants etc... Their fresh New England Coffee is always a plus to grab on the way to the beach. If you... More

If you love sticky buns, donuts and homemade bread (pistachio, cranberry, banana) this is the place to go. Very small quaint shop off the beaten path but on the street to smugglers beach. Everything is so fresh and the aroma makes you want to spend the day. The owners are very friendly and they have an open kitchen so you... More

We walked to this bakery from a local hotel for breakfast and all four of us loved our treats. I had the raspberry scone and my daughter had a chocolate croissant. The staff were very friendly as well and asked us about our stay and where we were from. We would go back if we are staying in that area... More
