Sweet cakes is a neat place in a small village. Very unexpected. Everyone who enters is addressed by name (Not us, we were strangers). Coffee is terrific, 5 choices for tea, and a few sandwiches complete the menu, except for the bakery stuff. Several great looking cookies, 4 scone choices. The 2 berry scone I had was huge and about... More

I don't know how Sweetcakes isn't ranked higher. There seems to be a strong ice-cream bias in the reviews. I love ice-cream as much as the next person, but most of the ice-cream places are closed from late fall through early spring. Also, there are some times when ice cream simply is not appropriate. Besides, comparing ice cream with baked... More

I have lived in Narragansett all my life and have never been to Sweet cakes before and so glad mom and i ventured in because Sweet cakes has beautiful pastries from muffins, cupcakes, cookies and more! They have quite the selection of sandwiches, soups and drinks to from smoothies, lattes even coffee!

Excellent bakery items, and other pluses. The place to order a birthday cake for an adult who appreciates a good cake (too expensive for a kid's party.) Scones and muffins are a nice morning treat. Egg tart for breakfast or lunch is always a treat.

This sweet spot is a must visit for me. The chocolate ganache cake and the hot chocolate are the best I've ever had...high praise from a self-diagnosed chocoholic ;) If you have a sweet tooth this is the Bakery for you.

I personally think this place is overpriced. Their cupcakes always seem pretty dry to me and their icing is nothing special. It's not awful, though. The staff is very nice and their coffee is pretty good. They are also one of the only places around that make real egg sandwiches (with real eggs AND they don't microwave them).

I am still moving into the area and this little bakery and sandwich shop was recommended by another local business. My mother and i ended up going every morning for four days. The atmosphere is comfortable and pleasant, the food wonderful and the smoothies delicious. Don't forget to try an amaretto apricot scone. For breakfast get there early because they... More

Great little bakery and coffee cafe with delicious organic coffee and homemade sweets. Loved the little signs: Make coffee not war :)

Excellent coffee- great sandwiches- spectacular cookies, cupcakes, muffins, cakes. Maybe a bit pricy.

Very disappointed when I visited last week. I had always looked forward to a delicious morning pastry and a coffee on the patio. Didn't realize the owners had changed and the selection offered was not appelaing. We got a blueberry muffin and a scone -- and we could not finish either as they were so 'stodgy'. My coffee had grounds... More
