What can I say? Everything was PERFECT! Everything was fresh as can be! I had the Bagel Burner sandwich, (bagel, cream cheese, red onion, bacon, and lettuce) sooo good! The pastries were made this morning. The peach pies sold out quickly; I was lucky enough to grab one before they were gone. Go early, as they close at 11am.

We'd heard a lot about Orange Blossom's famous Apple Uglies, and finally were able to snag a couple of them. They are truly ugly, but it's easy to see why they're so popular. They're much like "turtle" pastries -- a doughnut-like pastry with cinnamon and apples baked into them under a heavy, sugary coating. If you're looking for a sweet... More

And was not disappointed by the selection available! The apple uggles are gigantic and very tasty. Also feasted on the glazed donut holes and sugar twists. Perfect place to find breakfast sweets😀

Surprised to find a full parking lot and line waiting at this small bakery and breakfast spot early on a Saturday morning. After seeing and sampling the food I can see why. We had to try their Apple ugly. One was definitely enough for the two of us and ours was still warm from the oven. though not Gourmet, their... More

We stopped at the Orange Blossom Bakery before climbing Cape Hatteras Light. It was a Saturday morning and I feel like we opened up the place. The crowds sure started pouring in as soon as we ordered. We each got a breakfast sandwich. Mine was on a homemade biscuit and my husband's was on a bagel (I think). We also... More

Went on a Sunday morning and waited online this place was hopping all morning. We had a ugly and my husband who loves apple fritters said it was the best he had in a long time. I had a curler twist that was great also. If in the area it is definitely a must stop at place.

Huge Apple Uglies right out of the cooker--it doesn't get any better than this. Donuts are great as well, and free donut holes for the kids. Friendly staff; always busy for a reason!

There was a line, but it moved quickly. The owner and another employee were friendly and engaging. Coffee was fresh and hot. They even gave our little girls each a donut hole. Nice little treat. Apple Uglies were so delicious! We will visit again!

Orange Blossom is small and crowded and the staff wasn't the friendliest when we were there, but the Apple Ugly was delicious! It is HUGE. 4 of us ate off of it. There is seating, but the ordering area is congested due to the popularity of the place. They are only open 6:30--11 am, so get there early! The donuts... More
