My wife is from Cincinnati and has always raved about this bakery. So......ordered a cake for a graduation and it was perhaps the worse one I'd ever tasted. Reminded me of one you might find in the back of the 'fridge a few weeks after the party! The decoration was nice so I'll bump them up to poor. I'm thinking... More

There are bakeries in Cincinnati with bigger "names," but this bakery is the simply better. They do breads and pastries equally well-I love the individual pineapple upside-down cakes.

This is the best bakery in Cincinnati! It looks like something time forgot...they don't seem to have remodeled since the 1970s. But, maybe that's how they keep their prices so low. The coffee cakes are phenomenal. So are the thumb print cookies. The only not so great item is the eclairs- they don't do the custard filling that well.
