Love the variety of flavors. Have never been disappointed. A little pricey at >$4.50/slice but worth the occasional splurge.

we are from charlotte and my wife loves this place...Anytime we are in the area we stop by. Really great pound cake...However today we go in and there is a actual CHURCH service with praying and a preacher trying to sale her books. Not the place to have a church service. VERY VERY AWKWARD and strange... We would of course go back but please separate business from church. We do not go to a business to listen to a sermon or pray...Nothing wrong with the church but it was not the place for that

There are two locations of tje sweet shop, one on Elm St. The other in Friendly center. I am not pleased wirh the location on Elm St. They have very few cakes out and many times I've had to wait for more to get done for more of a variety to choose from. Today my wife and I drove to their "new" location in Friendly Center. We were both very satisfied with tje quality of the cakes but also the large amount of different varieties to choose from. The Friendly Center will see is again. As far as the location on Elm Street. That location need to do better to regain my business.

After visiting the International Civil Rights Museum and eating lunch we were ready for dessert. All of us wanted pound cake and down the street from the museum we found you! The choices and the taste was marvelous! Everyone enjoyed the pound cake. My sister lives in RDU area and said it would be worth the almost two hour drive to get another piece. I can't wait until I return to try the lemon pound cake and the key lime pound cake. However, I'm in CT. I seem to remember they can ship the cake. Mmmmmm
Take the time to stop by and purchase a slice.

I had a chance to visit The Sweet Shop after participating in a marathon. The selection was awesome, the shop was so quaint and more importantly the cake was awesome! I bought 3 different flavors to travel back to Virginia with, banana pudding (which was recommended to me), pineapple/orange and sweet potato...I loved all 3! No I didn't eat all 3 (one was for my husband and the other my daughter). The banana pudding was my favorite!
