We shared an amazing lemon bar and chocolate peanut butter bar, and sat outside and ate on a lovely day. The woman behind the counter was friendly and fun. Way too many calories but so very worth it! :)

The owner was very friendly and helpful. The shop is conducive to spending time deciding on what you would like. So many choices and they also serve hot coffee and other beverages

I was recently in Downtown Apex and this was one of the stores open, so I of course had to check it out. It is on the corner and very inviting. It has tables and chairs inside with all the goodies in the cases or above it. The bakery has cakes, cupcakes, eclairs, cookies, macaroons, muffins, brownies and so much... More

Great fresh coffee in many styles and flavors, so far all have been a hit. It is hard to resist a desert when you walk into the shop, they all look so good. The ones I tested so far have been outstanding. Hard to just have one, maybe one of each.

This is a much needed cupcakery in Cheyenne. We ordered a dozen of the cupcakes. Raspberry Lemoncello, Chocolate, and Vanilla Bean. Very good cupcakes. The frosting was excellent. The only recommendation would be for the cake part to be a little larger to hold the cream. They are a little expensive, $3.50+ for a cupcake. But when there is only... More

Everything is fresh and yummy! Everyone is watching their weight these days but as most dietitians will tell you, you have to have a cheat day. This is the place to go. Need a special desert? This is the place to go. After dining in one of the restaurants on Salem, this is where people will walk to for desert.

I only had the cupcakes And they are good. Way better that Gigi's. Cupcakes are very moist with good flavor and the icing is perfect.

A variety of sweets! Our group got 3 different kinds of cookies, 2 cupcakes and a cookie sandwich with buttercream filling. Everything was great! No peanuts in any of the cupcakes which was great since someone had a peanut allergy. Can't wait to visit again.

A group of friends were in downtown Apex for Jazz Fest and decided to stop in the bakery after an evening of music and food trucks. We got some cookies and enjoyed all the sweet varieties in the shop. Cakes, brownies, cookies and lots of other sweets. They all looked delicious and the cookies certainly were just that!

This place has a medium selection of cakes and pastries for chocoholics and non-chocoholics. We got a yum yum which was a shortcake, raspberry and chocolate with almonds. We also got a dark chocolate/chocolate mousse concoction that was also great. There was so much good looking sweets it was hard to choose. I just wish they had had a dark... More
