We are a family owned old fashioned bakery, taking great pride in baking our products fresh daily from scratch. Located only a block from the beach, in the heart of Surf City, come enjoy a sticky bun, cupcake, or lemon bar and take home a pie or loaf of bread to have with dinner. Special orders welcome!
