The best bakery around. Fancy Pastry has been around most of my life (and I'm 50) Its a must for any special occasion. Besides cakes they have great pies, cookies and pretty much any dessert you want.

Fancy Pastry has a variety of baked goods. Donuts, donut holes, cupcakes, pies, cakes, and a large variety of other pastries and breads. However, this is a bakery and not a restaurant except for desserts!

The best bakery cake in Lexington. The icing is so smooth and creamy. All other bakery items are equally wonderful.

Went here first time to pick something up for a party. Was totally amazed at this place. 14 to 15 young girls in the back making cakes. 3 to 4 more behind the counter serving the customers. Close to 60 cakes ready to be picked up and they were making more. I got some pastries, fudge , and a cake.... More

Stumbled on this place 10 years ago and now it's a must stop every visit to Lexington. They make all their items in house and you can't go wrong with any choice. Pies, cakes, pastries, cupcakes, ice cream, something to satisfy every sweet tooth. My have to have every time and I'm sad if they're sold out is the Apple... More

Staff was very unengaging. I asked several questions and got bare minimum answers. Ended up with 3 meideocre cupcakes. When I asked what flavor they are the answer was "they're all the same" maybe 4:00 in the afternoon is not a good time to visit this fancy shop.

You will NOT find any better cake or pastries anywhere (and I have tried them all over the world!) The frosting on the cakes are to die for. I enjoy the donuts that have a ring of icing and chocolate on the top. Donut holes are delicious. We get a cake for everyone's birthday and luckily we have a large... More

My favorite is the cream filled dough nut holes. Many different varieties of pastries and the icing is the best anywhere. Only down side is if you come in before 11 a.m.you'll usually get day old pastries. Tho they are still very good, would much prefer fresh. You would think if they open at 8 a.m. they would have some... More

Every year as long as I can remember, (I'm 55) it's been a family tradition to buy whoever in the family who had a birthday a cake from Fancy Pastry. Their cakes are untouchable. We recently moved to Myrtle Beach and I drove to Lexington to Fancy Pastry for my own birthday cake last week since they don't deliver. Their... More
