The charcuterie and some appetizers(since it was a late lunch for us and we came with our appetites) with the take 2 lunch size portion was perfect! I had the salad and my daughter had the sandwich that way we were able to save room for the delectable cakes for dessert!

This was our third time at The Cake Bake. We always love the ambiance, the yummy desserts and the food. I will say this time I didn't get that special feel from our server. She wasn't was super friendly, but didn't brink any bags at the end of our meal for our take homes. She didn't pre bus the table. But our overall experience was delightful.

The food is very good and you get generous helpings with a good selection to choose from. The desserts are very expensive but delicious and beautifully displayed. I took a friend for her birthday and was disappointed to be sitting next to the entrance. Our seats were broken down and therefore too low for the table. It would probably work for tall patrons. The Christmas decorations are phenomenal.

The menu is very fancy just like the ambiance. I had the Broccoli Quiche and it was delicious. My husband ordered off the kid's menu along with our kids. He is not into fancy food, but I knew that the food would be over the top just like the venue. They put glitter on everything! We went for my daughter's birthday and she loved every minute of it! The cake was delicious and the apple pie was to die for. It was worth it for the one time trip!

It was quite loud because they had a lot of large groups seated in the room we were in. I couldn’t hear my niece talk. It was nice but made it hard. Since just 2 of us, I wish we could have been somewhere else.

Took my daughter for her 21st birthday and it was magical! They made her feel special as several staff members came to our table to ask her if she was enjoying herself, her food and her special pineapple drink. It was a day she will never forget! Thank you so much!!!

We celebrated a birthday the day we visited. Our server Tyson was amazing. He was on top of everything and explained things very well. We had an amazing overall experience and had a lot of fun. Of course we all had CAKE and took most of it home but everyone loved what they ordered.
