I've read the other reviews of Ellie's and couldn't disagree with them more. Personally, I value quality over quantity, so I'd rather buy from a small bakery like Ellie's that produces a smaller selection of freshly baked, high-quality, tasty treats than buy from a large, commercial bakery that produces generic, bland-tasting crap. Ellie's is a very small bakery, so of course they won't offer as many selections as a larger, more commercial bakery, but everything we tasted was excellent. We did have some trouble catching the bakery when it was open, but we kept trying and are glad we persisted. The butter cake was delightfully buttery. The cinnamon roll was delicious. The sticky bun was maybe not quite as good as Mallon's of Ocean City, but still very good. The cupcakes were creatively flavored and artfully decorated - Boston Cream Pie, Red Velvet, Blackout (chocolate cupcake with fudge filling and fudge icing), Peanut Butter Chocolate, Vanilla with White Chocolate Mousse filling and White Chocolate Frosting, and a few more. And you know what? They tasted just as good as they looked! I'm an avid baker, so I have high standards for baked goods. I've had baked goods from Magnolia Bakery in NYC (highly overrated), Crumbs (overpriced and not good), Cape May Bakers (stale, underbaked, no flavor) - so I know a good bakery when I see (taste) one. And Ellie's is the real deal. I paid $18 for four cupcakes, a butter cake, cinnamon roll, and sticky bun. Overpriced? I don't think so, but I'm willing to pay more for quality. Sure you can buy a dozen cupcakes for $3.99 at Acme, but are they going to taste good? I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. My only regret is that I visited Ellie's on my last day of vacation; I'll have to wait until next year to visit again.
