We have gotten several rum cakes from here and they are wonderful. All the pastries are great. Love the custard cannoli.

This is our go-to bakery when picking up dessert for a family gathering. Their cakes and pies are excellent, and there is plenty of variety to choose from. We are also a huge fan of their eclairs and bismarks. They do a great job decorating the cakes too.

We've been coming here for years and it's the only place we get our birthday cakes. Delicious pastries, real cream bismarks and the best Strawberry Shortcake in all the land!

Really great local bakery. With the spread of a certain national chain, places like this are increasingly rare. The donuts are old-fashioned in the most positive sense. We stopped there multiple times on a trip to Salem and it was always packed and always great.

I love supporting local small cafes especially when they do things right. It's a tough business and not for the faint of heart. The help here is always pleasant and even while not expecting tips!! The coffee is hot, fresh and delicious as are the pastries! The figure eights get a ten+ ! Turnovers, cheese danish, donuts, it's all sinfully... More

This is more of a bakery than a coffee shop. They have excellent donuts and scones. There's a full range offering of almost any type of pastry found around the North Shore, plus croissants. They also make egg sandwiches to order. This place is a bit outside the main tourist areas of Salem but worth putting it on your GPS... More

Coffee Time is a bit off the beaten tourist path in Salem, but well worth the visit if you enjoy fresh delicious pastries. It's only a 2 minute drive from downtown, head down Bridge St towards Beverly Salem Bridge (don't take the bypass road). About a 10 minute walk. They have amazing fresh pastries, including some seasonal specialties In the... More
