“Lava Cake to Die For”
Review of Sweet Cakes, Inc.

Sweet Cakes, Inc.
Ranked #2 of 4 Dessert in Wakefield
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 July 2016

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 goods is quite like comparing apples to oranges.

For my money, Sweet Cakes is the best bakery in town. If you like chocolate, and who doesn't?, try the lava cake. It's an out-of-body experience. Also, although not always available, Sweet Cakes makes excellent European-style fruit tarts. Although not exactly dessert fare, the scones and muffins are the best breakfast cakes around.

Sweet Cakes also has a small-but-excellent menu of simple breakfast and lunch meals. These include bagels with various spreads, some egg dishes, sandwiches, soups, etc. They're all very good for what they are and prices are reasonable, especially given the quality.

The place is small, so seating and staff are limited. This sometimes results in a wait for your order to be taken. But I've been going there for years and never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be served.

Try it. You'll be glad you did.

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).
