Williams Bakery (the Mechanicsville Pike location) is a REAL bakery, a throw back to the 40's and 50's type of "family owned" businesses that had people working all night to produce authentic bakery products the way they were produced BEFORE the "industrialization" of pastry items. If you enjoy quality pastry, do not miss this shop. It was thrilling to see... More

My husband went to pick up our wedding cake only to be told "we forgot to make it." Acting like it was no big deal...made us a cake with what they had on hand (not the flavors we selected during our tasting) and only deducted $30. I will NEVER go back to Williams Bakery and I would highly suggest that... More

Williams Bakery is a local bakery in Mechanicsville.They have tasty doughnuts, pastries,and other treats.And the eclairs are delicious as well. This is a very friendly, family owned business that's been around for a very long time with a large variety to choose from.

I swear their doughnuts are some of the best I have ever eaten. They are sweet and light. Every couple of months I will buy a dozen and bring them to work. They are appreciated very much!

This bakery is open 7:00am to 6:00pm. Nice selection and prices are reasonable. We had a question on Lemon Chess Pie which they had bars made up as well and in order for us to decide they cut a piece of the bar off as a sample to try. This made the visit worth while and when back in the... More

I've always enjoyed their pies and rolls.. but the cakes..Naawww, I'll pass- they tasted too much like a box mix of something "Factory made"..I guess the Ukrops Brand - has spoiled us with their Wonderful Buttercream icing in the past and nothing compares.William's Bakery has a 2nd location off of Rt 301 in the Food Lion Shopping Center.

I have had some good items from here like a cake. However, when a local event required me to contact them to see if we could get a donation of day old bread or cakes for a cake walk prize, they wouldn't even CONSIDER it and turned us down. Small bakery yet doesn't care about the community. Fail.
