B & W Bakery is well known for their coffee cake but their selection is amazing! From the delicious french pastries, cream horns and pecan rings to name a few, it's hard to make a choice!

This being said it is famous for it's crumb cake. The cake is tender and has the thickest layer of crumbs that I've ever seen. This cake is available as a regular... More

We have been going to this bakery since the 70's. I am aware that the owners have changed but the pastries and cakes were perfect to say good bye to our military son. Fresh and delicious...
