    We went there for my daughters birthday and took a couple of her friends. It is a beautiful place. I would say that we can check it off our list of going there now. The cake was good, serving size large but it wasn’t insanely good. The girls got some fancy drinks and they were very sugary. I would say you go for the experience, they had fun. But, I doubt we ever go back. Our waitress was great though and made my daughter feel special.

    Our server was extremely slow and we had constantly ask for things. I was so disappointed. She was extreme nice, but absent most of our visit. We ask for an extra plate 3 times and our food came out wrong and we had to search for a server to assist. The restaurant was not that busy and we were the only table in our section for about half of our visit. Servers would just walk by like we were invisible. I had my tea refilled once and our water after asking twice…..I guess I just expected more.

    Very disappointed in this trip to cake bake. Learned that they are adding a new location at Disney. In doing so they are having to remove the swans & have to keep everything very uniform. We tried to order a strawberry lemonade only to find out we couldn’t because it’s not on the menu even though they have the ingredients in the bar. Also, our water glasses got empty. Hope our next visit is better as we visit quite often.

    Initially we were seated on the porch, where my mother objected to the noise level. Four of the five of us used hearing aids, so they were quite sensitive to the sound. Our server, Jack, let the manager know and we were moved indoors, and we even kept Jack who continued to take good care of us. From then on the ambiance and food and cakes were just enchanting.

    Great food. Amazing atmosphere. My best friend and I went for my birthday (40th) and the server made it extra special. She put a birthday candle in some lime sorbet(soo good) and put some pixie dust in my hair also . I had the soup de jour tomato, hot ham, and Brie sandwiche, hot chai tea, regular fries. Visited the bake/gift shop. Purchased the lemon bar, and chocolate chip cookie to go. Best lemon bar I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to go back.

    I take my mother, my daughter and 4 granddaughters to Cake Bake once a year as a special treat. The place is beautiful and the food is always good. This year the service was really slow. I know that it's going to be expensive, but this year the prices are so high they may be out-pacing the value. We had 3 kids (ordering from the kids menu) and 4 adults and our bill was $500 with tip.

    My wife and I had taken a special trip to the cake bake shop in pre celebration of her birthday and it did not disappoint. The decor and ambience was special and made for a memorable experience. The food was good quality and good portions but the main reason we came was for the dessert and it delivered! We ordered the earl court chocolate cake slice and a slice of the champagne raspberry to sample at the restaurant as well as a slice of the mint chip to take home along with a couple of chocolate chip cookies for our kids. There were plenty of leftovers due to the generous serving size of the slices but it was honestly some of the best cake slices we’ve ever had and our kids really enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies! The price for everything wasn’t bad either. The only thing that was tough was we had to make reservations several weeks in advance but I can see why it is so popular. Definitely recommended.

    Fifty one dollars for 2 small crabcakes?! I ordered them because I was told they were a best seller. They were good but not THAT good!. Don’t go unless you plan to drop a lot of money! Two adults and 2 small grandchildren was $200 and we had no appetizers and only water to drink.

    We went for Sunday brunch/lunch on a Valentine’s Day date on the 18th. We were seated at the table I requested on my reservation :) There were so many options that looked yummy, it took a while to decide. We had a decaf mocha latte and a pumpkin latte, and fontina cheese for appetizer. For the meal, I had a broccoli quiche with a side of berries and he had the 12-layer club with fries. All of the food looked amazing and was absolutely delicious. Our server was attentive, our food was warm, and we had a wonderful time. The restaurant got a little more crowded and loud around noon, but it was a nice moderate level when we arrived. We look forward to returning for dessert & drinks!

    The Cake Bake Shop is a very festive and fun place to go. The atmosphere is amazing. The food is delicious. However, it is very pricey. It was worth it for my daughter and me to go and enjoy some quality time and have a girls' day out. When you make a reservation, it is beneficial to add any specifics you’d like them to know of before your scheduled date. We were seated at a tiny table right inside the doorway. It was very cold and snowing that day. Many people were coming and going, so there wasn’t much privacy. We asked if we could move to a different table, but it wasn’t an option for us to do so. We understood because they were booked up. Overall, it was a great experience and a wonderful time!
