The bake goods are fresh and delicious with a surprising variety. Our group tried several options and everyone loved their choices, so much so that very little sharing was allowed! We will definitely return for more goodies.

The Bankery is fantastic! Their cakes are to die for and they make fancy custom cakes. I've had several flavors and they are all wonderful. Their baked good and bread products are also fabulous. I'd recommend anything they create.

Hands down my favorite bakery around. I like to stop in and get a stuffed croissant. The spinach and feta one is great and the egg, cheese, and pastrami one is even better. I’ve also had a cake made by them and it was delish.

Everything I've ever purchased at the Bankery has been fantastic! Pastries are very tasty and almost too pretty to eat, flowers are beautifully arranged, and their toutiere pies are amazing.

The items were on the dry side but to me most bakery items are, I'm a strict food critic. The display was professional and they looked scrumptious. That's why I gave 4 stars. Stars are earned.

Molasses are my favorite cookies. Theirs are awesome. Perfect for coffee dunking. Also had pumpkin with white chocolate, and classic peanut butter. Their pastries are outstanding.
