Bakery/pastries in Grand Cayman?

When we were in GC around 2008, there was a bakery/pastry shop that also served some great breakfast dishes in Georgetown a few blocks from the port. When we were there last year, it was gone. Are there any bakery/pastry shops in Grand Cayman? We love freshly cooked breads and pastries - especially for breakfast.

Looks like a couple of good choices. I will be trying both. Thanks!

There is also a new place in Camana Bay where Black Trumpet was. Awesome!

I wonder if that is the cupcake shop we visited last year? The cupcakes were delicious, but that was all they had.

Red Robin -- it was gone in May. I went looking for cupcakes for a friend's children and couldn't find anything else like it at all. A real shame but I guess you would have to sell a huge number of cupcakes to pay the rent!

Yeah, we were there in late September, so you wouldn't expect many buyers. But it almost felt like the 4 cupcakes we bought were the only ones they sold that day. Too bad they are gone.

I think the cupcake craze has run it's course in many locations. We've seen shops where they were the main item either go under or have to expand their offerings to stay in business. In a metro area wile DC (DC Cupcake show) you perhaps can build a large enough clientele to be busy all year round, but in a place like GC, the slow periods are likely a killer, especially when rent are high. Even here in the States, good independent bakeries are disappearing as they find it difficult to compete with the in-store bakeries at supermarkets.

Icoa was mentioned above and I'm guessing that was actually the place you visited in 2008. It used to be in town but is now in the Seven Mile Shops.
