We enjoyed the baked goods -- all of them -- at this bakery. Unfortunately, the bakery has closed. In its place you'll find the Inverness Park Market, a deli.

Busy Bee Bakery is gone. The space was reclaimed by Perry's Inverness Park Market and is called Gather @ the Market. They are open for dinner Thursday to Sunday.

I will review it when I have eaten there , but hear the food is delightful! The chef is part of Perry's regular staff. I have eaten in Perry's for lunch, but the dinner area in the former Busy bee is for dinner only and I have not tried it.

They have buzzed on to sweeter places and are no longer with us. Perry's Deli is now the sole option here and a wonderful choice for take out or gourmet groceries.

Had delicious sticky roll and breads for breakfast when our B&B had crummy choices. Definitely would recommend. Baker was feeding us as well as taking items out of ovens, which was entertaining and reminded us how fresh our food was!

We had sandwiches and pastries and all was fine until one party in my group needed to go to the bathroom. It was a portalet! The person was then sorry they ate there thinking how does anyone wash their hands.

We visited today and wished we hadn't. I had what promised to be a lovely sandwich chicken pesto and walnut, sounded great but in fact was mashed almost blended into a sandwich filling paste with so much mayo (?) it was awful. The service wasn't massively friendly, we have come to expect such good service here in the states and... More

A small space but what a treat. All the pastries made on site; a great spot to stop for breakfast. We especially liked the cinnamon rolls for their size (easy to split!) and the fact they were not over-the-top in icing. And the bearclaws were so good too. Friendly service, great pastries.

Last time, 6 months ago, we were greeted warmly, had a fun conversation and enjoyed generous tasty sandwiches. This time, surly service and sandwiches on day old croissants accompanied by a not very good peanut butter cookie. what a shame.
