This bakery could have more of a selection, but I truly loved the Brioche bread I ended up buying. The staff member was friendly and knowledgable.

Stopped in for cupcakes to have for dessert with the meal we were cooking for friends at the house we rented. Just ok and pretty expensive for the size of the cupcakes. Better off at the super market !

This is one of those places that we always stop at on our trips to Lake Placid. However, recently on vacation, we stopped there and found it rather disappointing. The original owner and baker was the best. Our treats this time were just OK bordering on stale, and the service was poor. The younger girl at the counter didn't acknowledge... More

Cupcakes were good and portioned just right. The apple cider doughnut was very yummy! The atmosphere was kind of like northern woods meets clean bakery.

I kind you not this stuff is addictive. We've passed by it a few times but only recently stopped. We were back the next day and again before leaving. Everything they make is amazing, it varies from day to day and it will sell out quick so I recommend getting to it before anyone else does. If they have them... More

I have been going to Cake Placid for a while now. Usually once a month, sometimes more.. Always same deliciousness! I am not a fan of their cupcakes, but then again I'm not a cake lover. I love the lemon bars, cookies, and pastries! This past week, I purchased a deep fried croissant it was outrageous!

Overpriced. Stale. Bad experience. I try to support local businesses but we will not be returning here. Items we bought did not taste fresh.

I'm a local area resident and have been to Cake Placid at least 5 times over the past 2-3 years. On repeated occasions, I have found that their cupcakes, while beautiful looking, do not taste fresh. The cake portion is hard and stale, as if it's days old. The absolute worst was when I bought a pack of their frozen... More

We stopped after reading reviews on FB. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a lovely little bakery filled with wonderful goodies. Most of the hand decorated cupcakes were Halloween themed. We bought 1/2 dozen adorable cupcakes to take home to our grands. We bought cheesecake, donuts to die for and the greatest bread ever. Not disappointed with anything. Thank you... More
