“A smell of Heaven Upon Arrival”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I had not heard anything about this little Bakery until I saw it on Tripadvisor. I decided since I was in the area I would try this little business. Upon arrival the smell was wonderful. It had seating in the area for about 12 people. It was absolutely full with people enjoying wonderful bakery goods and just chatting. It was so pleasant to see. I chose the chocolate chip, raspberry coffee cake. It was absolutely delicious. This bakery does not have a name outside, but it is located at the traffic light past Pelican seafood. Clem's seafood is at the light also. It looks like a little cottage but it is far more than that. Please give it a try it is wonderful!! I was greeted as soon as I walked in so did not see anyone being surly.

“Best bakery on the coast!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Can't say too much good about it! From cupcakes to apple turnovers, honey buns, chocolate selections, muffins, etc. PLUS they cater! Provided side dishes and cupcakes for a huge birthday party and they were a big hit! Cheerful and helpful staff! Always fresh coffee to stop and sit and munch! Love it!

“Very overrated”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

While the astray was OK the staff was downright surly. Thy didn't even look up when we went in and never smiled at all. We felt we were an inconvenience to them

“Best bakery around hands down! Great selection too!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We love this place. Try to go as much as possible but, sometimes it is just better to stay away. She has so much stuff we like, we always leave with a box full :-)!

Muffins, cupcakes, cookies, doughnuts, pies, whatever your heart desires and it is tasty!

Some of our favorites are the creme horns, peach/applie turnovers, long johns, muffins, sugar cookies. We haven't eaten other stuff and like it to but, these are some of our "regulars".

“You have got to go. Best bakery in the area!”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Large selection of treats for even the most selective of sweet tooth's. Absolutely, the best bakery in the area. From cupcakes to apple turnovers, honey buns, chocolate selections, muffins, etc... too many to recall. We always stop and get a few treats to take back home. Tried others in the area and not one compares. Make this a must on your travel itinerary. :)
