“5 stars for chicken pot pie”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We order the large size 24 hrs in advance and bring it home to cook. Everyone who has tried it, loves them! IMPORTANT Note: the bakery has new hours as of Sept 2012: opening at noon and closing by 1:30pm (or maybe a bit later if they haven't run out of food, five days a week (Tuesday through Saturday).

Also, Bakesale Betty does NOT offer a wide variety of baked goods any longer. Check their website, but they seem pretty much limited to the frozen pot pies, the breaded chicken sandwich, and a few types of cookies. We have gone several times and there are no fruit pies any longer, for example.

“Scrumptious Sandwiches”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Be prepared to wait in line. Order your chicken sandwich. Grab an outside table and plenty of napkins. Unwrap. Take a big bite. Ahhhh....so worth the wait! This place has been around a long time and is really good. Just have patience or go when it isnt a standard mealtime. Everything is very good. You can't go wrong no matter what you order.

“Magical Bakery”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Just walking in you'll probably be offered a HUGE cookie as a sample taste. The local firemen are always wondering in. Wonderful basic cookies, pies, cakes, sandwiches, soup, on nice days eat outside at the ironing board tables. Pre-order holiday baked goods and pick-up day before, nothing else is left!!! Love the enthusiasm and dedication of the staff--this is not just a job, it is their passion. And notice Betty in her iconic blue wig.

“A few sandwiches some baked goods, a long line.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The chicken sandwich is amazing and the others are pretty good. You eat them sitting on stools outside with ironing boards for tables. At prime times the line can be very long. The sweets are also good.
