If you're looking for the best cake and dessert in town, look no further. They always have everyone's favorites in stock for slices and if you want to pick up a cake last minute for a party they can decorate with simple decorations (words and lining) on the fly. I've picked up my husband's last two birthday cakes the day... More

This was my second trip based on a recommendation, and they have so many types of cakes to choose from. There is a cute little area to dine in, but I have done take out both times. The chocolate cake was delicious.

Ever want just a slice of your favorite cake. GO HERE! They have tons of selections. I LOVE the German Chocolate then again the lemon cream is good. But wait let's not forget about the coconut......and the red velvet. -sigh- You may have to wait but it's okay. Check them out.

I have had the pleasure of enjoying all of the top 5 bakeries on this list except for one. I like Maxie B's so much that I don't want to waste my calorie allowance anywhere else. Between my wife and I we have had the All American Chocolate, the 14 Carrot Cake, the Coconut Pineapple, the Italian Cream, the Hummingbird,... More

I come here about twice a month for a slice of the caramel cake. I pay a little over $5 for it and it's a pretty large slice. Some days the line's out the door, but they're usually well-staffed to handle the traffic. The staff is always really nice and efficient. The cake is out of this world.

Stopped here for the first time this week, there is always a line out the door but it moved very quickly and efficiently. The inside of the bakery is adorable, staff is friendly, and the lemon cake was delicious! Will definitely return

The strawberry buttercream is the best cake ever made. The red velvet and pink lemonade cake is very good as well. The long line down the sidewalk speaks volumes about this place.

This bakery and dessert cafe is the cutest little place! The decor is adorable, cozy and comfortable -- a great place to hang out! During my 4 years of college I've watched the bakery grow (they literally had to buy out the place next door to expand because that is how popular it has become). During popular times you can...

Hands down, the best desserts you could possibly want. Shoot, I can gain weight walking by! Although Maxi's has limited seating, it is cozy, almost a homey, welcome feeling when you walk him. They have a standard variety of coffee, and the owner is always there, at least when I go in. The croissants are to die for. Take a... More

You can't go wrong with anything you choose at this place! The cakes are amazing; I would not go with the cupcakes as they always taste a little dry to me. You can share a slice--plenty to share--or choose two different ones and really indulge! It's a great place for dates, friends catching up, taking your kid for a special... More
