The West Side Bakery is like something out of a movie or a favorite book. This charming neighborhood bakery, nestled in the Pilgrim's Square shopping center, is what all your friends who live elsewhere wish they had in their towns. Walk through the door and behold a case of the most beautifully decorated cakes you've ever seen. Taste one, and... More

Beautiful vegan treats in a beautiful environment, but once is enough for me. Wish they would get with the program.

I went into the Green location about a month ago to inquire about ordering a cake for my sons graduation party, I spoke with Ashely and she was very patient with me- showed me pictures and even suggested her own ideas, as I had no idea what I wanted. When I got the cake it was everything I had hoped... More

Probably will only visit a rare occasion...too bad, I was looking forward to them being in my community. If I owned a business... More

I just don't get all the hype. I got a plate of Christmas cookies from a guest recently and was excited to finally try the goodies at the famed West Side Bakery. I found the cookies to be just OK. The butter flavor was barely discernible and the cookies were rather dry. I then learned how much my guest paid... More

A cute little bakery. It is not a bad place but as some of the reviewers stated, the appearance and the taste of their desserts does't necessary match. I think I'd rather enjoy a cake taste better than its appearance.

The West Side Bakery makes desserts that are out of this world. Highly recommend their cakes. My favorite has been the chocolate cake with chocolate gnache and chocolate frosting. Love the convinece of having a special bakery in Green, Ohio

Highly recommend West Side Bakery in Akron. We have used them numerous times for cakes, but also had their cookies and brownies. The baked goods are delicious and the people are very helpful and friendly.
