With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, I can't wait to order a pecan bourbon pie! It is by far the best that I've ever had. We've had friends and family drive to Newburyport from Waltham and Wellesley to get pies from Buttermilk Baking. They are best baking company I've come across in a LONG time!

The best pumpkin pie ever. Seriously. Great full, earthy flavor and texture. The pecan zucchini bread is delicious, too.

Stopped in and grabbed a few goodies to go. The German chocolate bar was perfect after lunch treat. The lemon olive oil rosemary shortbread was delicate in rosemary but packed a lemony punch. The crumb cake was equally cake to crumb and a cinnamon delight. The specialty cakes, hand decorated cookies, deep dish pies, and quiche looked expertly crafted and... More

We 4 loved this cute bakery off the square in Newburyport. In the morning as you walk in, the aroma of baking greets you and draws you over to the attractive and brimming cases of delicious looking baked goods. We settled on hermits, large browned butter shortbread cookies and molasses ginger cookies, for an afternoon treat. Later in the week... More

Love the minimal tall cakes that BBC makes. I ordered a custom spice cake for a party. The owner was most accommodating. She came up with a wonderful seasonal and spicy cake. It was delicious... but perhaps it had too much frosting between the many layers that took away from the cake's excellent taste. Quality ingredients.

I have only shopped here once but was very impressed with the quality. I bought a pumpkin pie for our Thanksgiving hosts, and it was beautifully done and delicious! I would definitely visit this bakery again.
