Our favorite bakery on the island for cupcakes, cakes and pastries. Go early for best selection, or pre-order and pick up your favorites. Bobbi also made my daughters wedding cake and cupcakes. I give my highest recommendation to her.

Purchased a variety of goodies for the ride home. Brownie, cinnamon roll...all seemed dry. Not fresh. A usual stop for us but, nothing seemed fresh and we were there early! Not sure if we'll be back.

If you get there early enough on WEEK DAYS you can get some really delicious cupcakes, cakes and even brownies! Really friendly people, not a place to hang out but it's a lovely place to go to get the treats for the week as they make really delicious treats!

Everything Bobby makes is excellent. Very homemade tasting and presented lovely to look at. Besides being a baker she can prepare anything from potato salads to various other salads, etc. and absolutely delicious and freshly made which is hard to get these days. Prices are very reasonable.

No better pies, cakes, or doughnuts anywhere -- except for the Side Street Bakery in Southport!! Pleasant owners.

The Confectionary did my daughter's wedding cake. It was a show-stopper and was so delicious the guests went back for seconds, thirds, and more. How often do people really rave about a wedding cake? Well, this was one they could not stop talking about! It was coconut cake with key lime filling and butter cream icing with icing seashells and... More

This is a great little local bakery - we dropped by several times during our trip! All of their goods are made fresh daily and if you do not get there early everything will be gone! The atmosphere inside is really cute, and if you have time to relax and sit you should! I recommend... Everything! I haven't eaten anything... More
