It was my daughters birthday and I wanted to get her a special cake or cupcakes. So I walked over and they were closed. So I figured I would come back the following day....they were closed again. I am sure the bakery is great but I didn't even get a chance to try it. My tip to you.....Call before you... More

We wanted something special for our family celebration and the huge, Delicious cupcakes from Northern Lights hit the mark!! Everyone raved about how amazing the assortment of red velvet, vanilla, and carrot cake cupcakes tasted. Even though we stopped by at end of season, the owner worked with us and provided friendly, impeccable service. Needless to say, there were no... More

There was a good selection at 11:30 am (but we're here out of season so it may not be as plentiful In season -- can't say but this place is so good,I could see them running out of the yummy goodness early!) :). Try the French éclair- I didn't even... More

Stayed in Corolla for 6 weeks. This was one of our favorites. Egg sandwiches were excellent. Pastries were baked fresh.

The donuts here are superb - fresh and delicious! Muffins are also good as well as Magic Bars. We got a Key Lime Pie which cost about $17.00 and it was small and not as good as we hoped. They said it was their best seller but I wouldn't get it again.

We liked to ride our bikes up to the bakery in the morning to grab a donut, cinnamon roll or sticky bun. You can tell it is all hand made and made fresh. They are very proud of their stuff and they should be. They are also very friendly.

Sorry that we didn't find this AMAZING place till halfway through our vacation!!! Their donuts are so delicious. We tried many of he pastries.... Every one of them were scrumptious! They served me the best coffee beverage I've had my whole vacation!!! I will visit here several more times before I head home. Customer service at its best!!
