Dagmar's is a fantastic bakery that specializes in desserts that will satisfy any sweet tooth! The strudel is one of the best I've had anywhere.

We were delighted when Dagmar's opened. Old Saybrook craved a good bakery. Too bad Dagmar's fall short. Their products are not bad but given the price their confections are disappointing. We expected with a name like Dagmar's that their strudel would be outstanding. Unfortunately it was soggy and overly tart. Still a need for a good bakery in Old Saybrook.

Dagmars is a gem among gems. I've yet to be disappointed by anything they make. To die and go to heaven, try their flourless chocolate cake. I don't think I've had better, anywhere.

I have ordered their flourless chocolate cake many times, always for a special dinner when I want to be sure the dessert hits the mark. I don't know why it is so delicious, but they clearly know what they are doing in that kitchen. Try it and you will be hooked.

European style cafe, always wonderful dessert items, that seem to change daily. Real scones too! Plus European chocolate not available locally. Also take away soups are delicious. Good strong coffee too!

The lunch was fantastic! Soup and a sandwich was outstanding! Then the desserts! I can't tell you how delicious everything that I tried was! Simply delectable cookies, cakes, scones. Soon I will have tried everything! We were able to eat outside in December! It was lovely. The staff is friendly and helpful.

And I mean 5 stars!! Dagmar bakes some of the best scones I have ever had. Perfect texture. Wonderful flavor. The apple Danish was perfect. The apples fresh and tasty and the crust was buttery and flakey exactly like it should be but never is. The Tierra Misu was outstanding as well. How lucky the town is to have Dagmar.... More

Delicious, always fresh ....the best in deserts! Great coffee! One issue, no table sitting. A bar with stools much too difficult for an elderly person or a disabled individual.

Had a cake brought to us from Dagmars and we were very impressed. It was beautiful, moist, and delicious. I would say it was a ginger cake (just like the flavor of ginger snaps).

Thank Sanded
