“Outstanding”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We have been going here nearly every weekend for the past several years. The baked goods are top-notch. The coffee iis great -- Best hazelnut decaf I've ever had. Unfortunately, the people who go there offer examples of some of the worst of the Hamptons. Many patrons are terribly rude to the staff, etc. The staff is lovely and deserve gold stars for their patience. If you can stand the people, and that's a big IF, this is a don't-miss place.

“Always good”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Formally Kathleen's Cookies, my wife who grew up in Southampton knows Kathleen. In fact she made our wedding cake 30 years ago. It was a carrot cake. Exquisite. People RAVED about it. We have had many more for special occasions since.
They are also getting more up to speed w/the gluten free fare.
Try the bread pudding please...it's wonderful.

“Time for something new...”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

I really like their coconut cake most of all. But with so many chocolate chip cookies on the market, Tate's (formerly Kathleen's) has lost its edge in the business. I think they owe it to their public to bring new bakery products to the market.

“Why is there any other in town?!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Delicious. Yummy and Incomparable. In a week with family, we consumed 3 cakes, Coconut, Golden Fudge and Choc Fudge; 6 dozen chocolate chip cookies, 4 dozen mini cupcakes, berry crumbles, morning pastries and more! Everything is great and cookies are easy to find in Citarella Stores. Service could be a bit nicer. Swore they did not have the pre-paid birthday cake, refused to look and then voila, my son went back and found it right on the shelf marked as he described and the receipt said.

“Tate's Bake Shop Southampton”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have enjoyed everything I have ever had from this delightful, attractive shop
in Southampton. Kathleen King is a tradition and now that she is enjoying national success it is just a good feeling that sometimes good people win!
