“Great sticky buns and cinnamon rolls!”

Great Island Bakery
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

This was our first time and the fresh made cinnamon rolls and sticky buns were just waiting there for us! They were excellent. There is no inside seating, but a few outside tables. It was the off-season, so it wasn't crowded. We picked up a couple of other items to go which were good, but not as good as the rolls and buns. The service was friendly and the prices very reasonable. We would have stopped back I think but they were closed on our last day there.

Made two mid-morning visits to Great Island Bakery during the Columbus Day weekend. The quality of the baked goods (buns, fig bars) we bought was very good. Breakfast sandwiches were acceptable, but had been made in advance, wrapped in foil and kept in a warming oven. I think the wide range of ratings on TripAdvisor for this place reflect a couple of things... It's a very small mother-and-daughter business (no tables inside, and only one outdoor table), which can't reliably predict how much business it will have day-to-day, so it appears latecomers will find a limited selection of goods available after the morning rush. And comments about the attitude of the owners/staff may be inappropriate; on the second occasion we were there, the people behind the counter were a crew completely different from the staff one day earlier.

Although this has nothing to do with the food, there was one disconcerting impression: the interior of the shop was dark. There were overhead lights in the ceiling fans, but they were off (on both visits). It was difficult to see the baked goods, and the display cases had no "sparkle." I honestly thought the bakery might be closed when I first walked in. Simple attention to presentation details like that might enhance everyone's opinion of the business.

We were having an engagement party for our daughter and decided to get a clam pie for appetizer. No one had ever had clam pie and everyone loved it! It was great - just like everything else at Great Island Bakery.

Great Island Bakery was a discovery as we drove through South Yarmouth. All of the pastries, breads, and pies are made on site with the very best ingredents. The meals to-go are again all home made to excellence. Pistacio breads - cream pastry - danish - apple pockets, filled with apples, various cookie recipes are all the quality and excellence of home made. The pecan stickey buns are the best we have ever seen. As you travel you need a cool drink and something to nibble. Great Island bakery is a god sent to travelers. Before you leave the Cape, stop here and bring home memories.
