This bakery is just down the road from my house. The bread is phenomenal. I am really more of a pastry person - the pastries are really good. Pizza is not bad - not my favorite but not the worst. Homemade pepperoni is good!

A very good little bakery tucked away on a side street. Friendly staff, I was kind of full when I went in so I didn't buy as much as I wanted! I did get a peanut butter bar which was great! The moon cookies and apple turnovers looked amazing. They had a selection of home made pasta and breads for... More

The East Side Bakery makes excellent Bronies and the rest of their creations are well worth trying. You would enjoy your visit.

I look forward to buying the soft Italian bread whenever I make homemade sauce. Christine is a first class cake decorator!! She is very talented!

I decided to order dinner rolls for a special occasion. It was a rather large order and I wanted to try something different than the grocery store where we would normally order breads and rolls. The baker (owner) was very helpful. The order was ready on time and the service was great. After hearing the reviews for their pizza I... More

East Side Bakery pizza is now a family tradition! Every Friday my family loves to try different kinds of their pizza and wings- just delicious! And of course we are tempted by all of the yummy pastries and always pick up a few for dessert. Another perk of this popular local treasure is that you can order ahead on holidays-... More

The wide array of baked goods are as good as they look, wonderful. Where this place drops the ball is their pizza. They only make pizza on certain days and times. Having watched many cooking shows I can tell you they need to sample their pizza. If they knew that it is over cooked and lacking of sauce, I truly... More
