We have been going to Williams Bakery in old Mechanicsville and on route 301 for more than 10 years. You will not find a better place for doughnuts to cakes anywhere in Hanover County. Everything, including bread is fresh and very good. If you are near either place, stop in and take a look, you will really thank yourself for... More

This is my go-to for Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. for pies. In fact it's the only place I have found that makes French Apple pies. All of their pies are good but this is my favorite. We had three pies yesterday at my Thanksgiving table. Pumpkin, Coconut custard and French Apple...just too good to resist. Requests were "just a sliver of... More

Read about the location on this site. Purchased two items: cream horn, and pastry and both were exceptional. Shopping location and purchase are to go. Wedding and special event cakes an be ordered and the standard cakes and pies will wet your taste buds

Williams Bakery (the Mechanicsville Pike location) is a REAL bakery, a throw back to the 40's and 50's type of "family owned" businesses that had people working all night to produce authentic bakery products the way they were produced BEFORE the "industrialization" of pastry items. If you enjoy quality pastry, do not miss this shop. It was thrilling to see... More

My husband went to pick up our wedding cake only to be told "we forgot to make it." Acting like it was no big deal...made us a cake with what they had on hand (not the flavors we selected during our tasting) and only deducted $30. I will NEVER go back to Williams Bakery and I would highly suggest that... More

I swear their doughnuts are some of the best I have ever eaten. They are sweet and light. Every couple of months I will buy a dozen and bring them to work. They are appreciated very much!

This bakery is open 7:00am to 6:00pm. Nice selection and prices are reasonable. We had a question on Lemon Chess Pie which they had bars made up as well and in order for us to decide they cut a piece of the bar off as a sample to try. This made the visit worth while and when back in the... More

I've always enjoyed their pies and rolls.. but the cakes..Naawww, I'll pass- they tasted too much like a box mix of something "Factory made"..I guess the Ukrops Brand - has spoiled us with their Wonderful Buttercream icing in the past and nothing compares.William's Bakery has a 2nd location off of Rt 301 in the Food Lion Shopping Center.
