Cake Placid caught my eye just as we were leaving town and I was so glad it did. We picked up some treats for the ride home and the Campfire Bar tasted like the best S'more I've every eaten. Will definitely return on my next visit. Love the name.

Quick stop for some baked goods. Everything was fresh looking and great. Staff was very friendly. The deep fried croissant was amazing! Will certainly be back!

This one excellent bakery. You will be spoiled with choice. All of the baked goods looked so good it was difficult to choose. We stopped twice for goodies, the last time was on our way home. We just had to take some of the goodies home with us.

Had to pick up a six pack of these delicious treats for after dinner tonight. Always fresh and will for sure curb your sweet tooth. Staff was friendly as usual. Convenient hours of operation and easy to get to in the plaza. You won't be disappointed!

Stopped by in the late afternoon on a Saturday. There wasn't much left, but what we did get to try didn't disappoint. Next time we'll know to swing by earlier in the AM if possible.

This bakery could have more of a selection, but I truly loved the Brioche bread I ended up buying. The staff member was friendly and knowledgable.

Stopped in for cupcakes to have for dessert with the meal we were cooking for friends at the house we rented. Just ok and pretty expensive for the size of the cupcakes. Better off at the super market !

This is one of those places that we always stop at on our trips to Lake Placid. However, recently on vacation, we stopped there and found it rather disappointing. The original owner and baker was the best. Our treats this time were just OK bordering on stale, and the service was poor. The younger girl at the counter didn't acknowledge... More

Cupcakes were good and portioned just right. The apple cider doughnut was very yummy! The atmosphere was kind of like northern woods meets clean bakery.
