Mary makes an outstanding old fashion style carrot cake that is moist and flavorful with loads of nuts. The ingredients are the finest.

Honestly, the best carrot cake I have ever had in my life! Easy to review! Cupcakes are great for a quick delicious snack. Great for birthday cakes too.

Just a small place across from Barrington Stage with two tables set up outside. The carrot cake may be the best I have ever eaten. We also had a blueberry coffee cake which was equally good. Pieces were large enough to share and coffee was free (although the coffee was not very good).

Filled with delicious cookies, cupcakes, a huge pieces of cake (try the lemon or the carrot...or try the lemon AND the carrot) and basic drinks like coffee or tea, this little whole in the wall is sure to please.

Apparently the hiatus is over and this wonderful place is back on Union Street across from the Barrington Stage. Selling two sizes of cupcakes and now with lemon cakes available in addition to their trademark carrot cakes, the prices and taste can't be beat. I am only disappointed that the icing seems sweeter and less "cream cheesy", but that could... More

This was gone for a year, but happily has returned. Directly across the street from Barrington Stages. Lemon cake is my favorite. Slices are large enough to share. $4 for a generous slice. Mini cupcakes are $1. Yum, yum, yum.

Once you've had Mary's carrot cake it becomes the standard by which all other carrot cakes are compared and none come even close to Mary's. This is by far the most excellent carrot cake I've ever had.
