Received excellent service from Braelynn and as usual, your restaurant looked beautiful! I ordered the ham and cheese quiche- easily my favorite quiche EVER! Outstanding. However, was disappointed in the magic bar. While the flavor was good, the top
of the bar had a hard crust that was off putting and hard to cut. It didn’t seem freshly made. Unfortunately, this was tte second time in a row my dessert didn’t appear to have been made the same day and was disappointing.

Desserts were fantastic & service was excellent! Pricey for the portion sizes, though, & it was cramped. I don’t think the guys were full so it may be ladies only next time. May also try Carmel location next time to see if it’s a little more spacious. Overall, though, we enjoyed it!

The Cake Bake Shop has never disappointed. I love the quaint size and ambiance of the Shop in Broadripple. Even though the fare is pricey, it is delicious and a wonderful treat to share with family or friends. Wish it was not so hard to get a reservation, I would go more often.

Everything from the broccoli quiche to the chicken velvet soup to the Millionaire cake was delicious! I only wish the servers were wearing masks since there are very high COVID numbers right now. My friend and I wore masks except while seated and eating. It is a very small place so I think they could do more to prevent the spread of the virus.

Had I known it was that small. I would not had driven 50 miles to eat at that location. Everyone raves over the decor. But I assume it's the Carmel location and not broad ripple. We sat at the 1st table from the front door. It was super cold, so I had to eat with my coat on. Our waiter was super nice, which helped a little. I was wanting salmon, only to find out they don't serve it there. I made reservations at the Carmel one for February and will give it one more try.

Atmosphere/decor and service were great. We had an evening reservation, and they were out of 3 bakery items, including the red velvet cake, which is what we specifically came for, so that was very disappointing. Items we settled for were okay. Certainly not worth $15-$16 per slice. Dinner menu is way overpriced. We left underwhelmed.
