Great locally made pies.

They literally served my family the best mother's day brunch I have ever had. The bacon, beef brisket, egg, and cheesy grits were phenomenal!

Diane Sutor

This bakery is wonderful! I have enjoyed everything from here. Marilyn's pies are so delicious! I go every year to the cookie walk in December. There is a variety of cookie favorites. I always get her mouth watering toffee. The toffee is the best I've ever tasted anywhere.

Andrew Barlog

Beat Bakery in Northwest Indiana!!!!

Thomas Kujawa

Kolacki's and donut were fresh, good selection but just a few seasonal flavors. I will be back.

Heather Bennett

Except the website DOES NOT REFLECT CURRENT HOURS OF OPERATION..i stopped last Sunday for a pie to take to a family dinner but was closed on Sundays thru Easter.. Not in the website fyi.. but EXCELLENT PEOPLE, SERVICE AND FOOD...i found hrs when I did-ok Google‐not accurate as actual website...sorry for misleading

Randy Berg

Tried the cheesecake with cherry topping. It was okay. It was cheesecake, but it had a mass-produced taste to it and was a bit pricey. Everything was actually. Might give it another try, just not sure when

anoop nair

Excellent. The Mandarin orange cakes are our favourite

Michael Mccann

Nice old fashioned bakery. Also close to the expressway.

joan Bishop

Went to annual cookie walk, it was organized, staff were friendly and very helpful

Samantha Mathas

Our favorite bakery! Everything is so fresh and delicious and the employees are always so polite and knowledgeable and friendly. I love popping in to see what's in the bakery case and trying new things. We love the paczki, which they have every so often for Fat Tuesday. They are by far the best in The Region. The mandarin cupcakes are to die for. The french silk is a favorite of my husband's. I recently had a chocolate dipped coconut macaroon (pictured below) and omg, it is fantastic. I highly recommend you try this place out! Shop local!

Judy McClellan

Customer Service is OUTSTANDING at Marilyn's!!! Their choices of products is extensive.

Max Brander

Excellent cakes, we always go back to buy same or different ones. The pastry chef knows her/his stuff!

Elizabeth Zix

Thank you Marilyn's Bakery for making my daughter the happiest bride this past weekend! The pecan and pumpkin pies were superb, not to mention the chocolate chip cookies that disappeared very quickly!! The pies and cookies were enjoyed by all at the reception. Oh so tasty - we look forward to our next trip to Hobart and a visit to Marilyn's Bakery!

Debi Zick

Very good food. Wish it was bigger

Andrea Edwards

Excellent food and baked goods.

Jessica Reyes

Very good cakes.

melissa polley

The most amazing is there mandrain orange cake

Susan Jones

Great cake and pies.

Kyle Bartolac

French Silk pie

Kathryn Wiley

To die for blueberry pie with crumbles. They carry full size and 5" pies (perfect size for singles). I live about 17-18 miles from the bakery, but will drive there in a minute when I crave a sweet.

Michelle Taylor

The apple cinnamon donuts are fresh and delicious!

Angela Hill

Always friendly and clean. the products are always good!

Lynda Benefiel

We stopped in for pie. We couldn't sit outside because they were washing the tables in the middle of the afternoon. Then we were told that they no longer serve pie by the piece. We settled for the strawberry donuts. They were dry and hard to swallow. This was made worse when my husband was served cold coffee and my drink cup had a split in it so that it ran all over the table and my pants. All of this cost us $10. We won't be back!!

richard gaughan

Super friendly staff, really tasty pastries... Small ones are very reasonably priced, larger ones a touch more expensive, but very good. Chai tea a little generic, but fine. The place is very clean, perhaps a little too sterile to be comfortable for hanging out and getting some work done, but overall good food, good people, and a nice place (and most folks just come in to grab things from the extensive bakery options and head out).

Kitty Kat

Stopped here after work for lunch with my mom and sister. They were so helpful when i asked questions cause i haven't been there before and the workers were super friendly too!

Erica Langevin

I had my wedding cake and desserts from Marilyn’s! I was an out-of-town bride and they worked me through the entire process with no communication issues. We emailed pictures back and forth to get a design picked out and they shared their dessert options with me so u had all the information I needed. I had mini brownies (turtle, fudge, and chocolate chunk) for all of my guests and they were a hit! The cake was beautiful and delicious, best of all everything stayed within our tight budget! I would definitely recommend Marilyn’s to anyone.

Terry Driver

Great baked items no tax !

Neury Freitas

Food is good, but selection is very very limited. Even early, in a blueberry festival day, only 2 lunch options were available. Service is good and staff is friendly.

Deborah Page

Love their foods!!

Alberto Navarrete

They have the best pies!!

Denise Georgopoulos

Good as usual :)

Susan Farinas

Loved the apple donut. The cherry pie looks amazing too. 9/28/18. Went back for a visit and had an amazing meal plus desert. I love Marilyn's and they had veggie/vegan options..

Daren Bouma

Delicious strawberry donuts, pies, and cheesecakes.

Debra Alsop

The best bakery in town!

meagan thomas

Krysta is the best person there. She has the sweetest personality and is a chef with a degree, which I think should be noticed by her boss. She is very creatively talented. She could do anything she puts her mind too and has spirit.

Kerisa Garcia

So much delish desserts here. I also enjoy sliding in for a lunch too!

Isabelo Marcano

Really good

Regina Shore

Love it

Biswajit Maharathi

Awesome place. If you need garden plants, this is one of the best places. The bakery is ok ok.


A premiere bakery simply wonderfull goods

lee schneider

Got a small peach pie at the Frankfort farmers market. Soooo good, looking forward to the next pie. It will not be the small size. Yummmm

Olymphia King

Wonderful place. Great service

Lori Sagala

We drove out to visit this business based on the information on their website. They had decided to close for a few days so our trip was wasted.

Mike Kuciver

Great Treats Great Customer Service

Kathleen Fiene

Veggie curry pot pie. Small version affordable at $6.00 Large is $12.00.

Roberto Carlos Camarillo

Always great products and always friendly service!!

Cathal McFee

The best bakery in Indiana, hands down.

Prince Squirtle

I used to love coming here with my family, but I had such a negative experience that I’ll never come here again. We attempted to contact them several times and could never get a hold of them. They finally got back to us several weeks afterwards, gave us a quote and told us they’d call us. Great! The lady on the phone that contacted us was unnecessarily rude. We are just trying to buy a cake, if you can’t do it, it’s fine. You don’t have to be so unpleasant. You can make cake and eat it too because no one is going to buy it with your terrible service.

King Gregory

Awesome pecan pie.

Marsha Bomba

Best bakery around.

Rachel Peace

Cathy make beautiful cakes! The service is always great and it's very clean inside


Delicious keisch

Eugene Knight

The pies are really good, and taste fresh

manny ceballos

We treated ourself to an apple crumble pie and other treats. The pie was delicious. very good pastires too. I would recommend if you are out of town (like we where) and are around this area, stop by and treat yourself to a pie or any pastrie.

Joshua Good

Great cake for Mother’s Day!

Iphy Iphegenia

Stopped by there to get some cupcakes that my friend kept raving about. The cupcakes were good, but not worth $2/cupcake. The owner used his bare hands to grab my cupcakes. I thought that's a definite no no in the food industry. His bare fingers scraped off some frosting on the cupcakes so he just wiped it off on his apron....not impressed at all

Phyllis Stawicki

Blueberry, raspberry, apple and pumpkin donuts are the best

Christine Marroulis

I was given a gift from a friend of English toffee from here and oh my goodness it's rediculious amazing!!!

Christina Mihalek

The food is good but a bit overpriced and the service is not very good.

Royce Campbell

Always great!

Regina Kowalsky

I have the Indiana State pie today and it was delicious

Arman Sarkisian

This place is nothing short of spectacular. The desserts are always fresh and rich. So good! But the lunch boxes, ohhhh my goodness! Any day we decide on Marilyn's for lunch at the office is a great day. They're chicken salad is my go-to and it never disappoints. The staff is always so friendly and quick. Marilyn's is an all-time favorite in my book.

Jessica Merrill

Amazing baked goods. Always friendly employees!

Cory Robbins

Googled if the place was open and it said open from 8am-6pm!! When I drove all the way to this place they are closed! ! Thank you for wasting my time and gas! !

Jean T

If you are wondering - "hmm, where should I go for pie since I don't know how/want to bake a pie" I will make it very easy for you. Just call and order one. It's also a really cute place to meet the girls for lunch, grab breakfast with your loves & order a mocha to go. What a great local bakery in a world that doesn't have many left!

Dianne Banks

Marilyn's bakery makes homemade cupcakes, cookies, cakes, pies & a limited food menu. Marilyn's Bakery is next to Johnsons farm where you can purchase seasonal vegetables & fruit, flowers, bushes,trees and accessories. Great parking.

angie fosnaugh

Their chocolate french silk pie is THE BEST ive evee had. I can literally eat an entire pie by myself. Its so yummy i crave it all the time. Matter of fact gonna try to convince my man to take me too get one

S. C. Sullivan- Musician, Teacher, & Writer

A fantastic family-owned business. One of many reasons why I want to move to the Region.

Rita Dahl

Great service, food is flavorful as well as beautiful!

Ashley Davis



Friendly service. Delicious treats.

nancy pahr

Great stuff best bakery around!

Crystal Lucas

There really are no sweets better than Marilyn's Bakery. Not to mention when you call with questions, they are caring and follow through with what they say. Had a question and the first phone person didn't know and instead of leaving it at that, he dug in and got the requested information and called me back. Wonderful customer service and great sweets!!! Win Win Win

Jacob Toth

Great cheese cake

Cissy Mario

I love their baked goods....amazing pies n cakes....

tony foster

Love this place!!!!!!!!!

Robert L Sturgeon

Marilyn's club sandwich is the best I've ever had anywhere!

Allen Kent

Once again Barb Tracy and her Marilyn's Bakery staff dazzled us with the most delicious English toffee anywhere coupled with the finest customer service around! My clients and employees always look forward to Christmas toffee provided by this finest of bakeries. Thank you for your part in making our Christmas so special! Best wishes from your friends at Kent Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.

Hector Casiano


Helen Bessette

Good but I I would not get anything with the non dairy topping again. Not a fan.

jack Witten

Awesome pies and baked goods

David Pete

Courteous and friendly staff! I would definitely return for the Organic African Nectar Tea!! Deeeeeelicious!!!!!

paula hammons

Very good lunch made fresh lunch is from 11 am to 3pm


Baked goods and toffee are usually delicious but I truly believe Marilyn's Bakery is too pricey. $2 for a small cupcake and $2 for 2 small cookies is way overpriced, as are a lot of the other baked goods. Price a bit lower and you'll get a lot more business. Just because you can get people to pay your higher prices doesn't mean they are happy with it. 4 stars for the baked goods & service, 2 stars for the prices. Just a word of advice!

Scott Gordon

Fresh and friendly with nice bakery selection.

Pat Mistak

Baked goods are the best, but pricey.

Jamie Narjes

Great pies!

Felicia Castro

Great stuff ,but a little on the expensive side

Corey Cheatham

Best creme pie

Judy Michael

Great tasting cheesecake and more!

foxshine 85

Great pastry

Aly Dickinson

Love this place! The location is adorable and they have great food and baked goods! We ordered our wedding cake from here and had an excellent experience! Laura was very helpful, accommodating to any changes and requests we had, professional, and friendly. The cake was DELICIOUS! When my husband and I first cut the cake and took a bite, we were both surprised at how incredibly good it was even though we knew how tasty the cakes are. The fondant was actually delicious too. The only negative part of our whole experience is that parts of the fondant dried a little before serving (that may have been our fault from how we stored it though) so it cracked in a few spots but it wasn't significant and is the only negative thing I can think of at all. I was so impressed with how intricate the details were and how similar the cake looked to the example we gave. We may have to drive the 2 hours from home to come here for our one year anniversary to have some more cake!

Andrew Castagna

Great selection of Pies & made daily! & Oh yeah CAKES! too.. give them a try, & you'll be Happy!

Jennifer Forssander

Wanted to give a big shout out to Marilyn's on my wedding cake! I turned out AMAZING! Better than I had ever imagined! Barb was so great about understanding what my "taste" and style was to design a cake/cupcakes for my wedding. At the start I had no clue what I wanted not being a big cake person but the day of my wedding it was truly to die for. I still get compliments on how pretty and delicious the cupcakes were! I also would like to thank Cathy, who drove my wedding cake and cupcakes all the way to IL to relieve my in-laws from the stress. Thank you so much! Everything they make is outstanding, I've had their espresso mud cake and chocolate turtles as well. If you're looking for a delicious cake/cupcakes everyone will remember I highly recommend Marilyn's for your wedding baker. Thanks again!

Kelly Pennington

I got my Peach Pie - Yum-O! No one else's compares to those tender peaches with just the right sweetness and buttery crust! Thank you Marilyn! - I will see you again next year!

Karalee Manning

Absolutely delicious. You can tell their bakery and everything is homemade. There was actually a line on Mothers Day...or the day before...I got a beautiful lavender mothers day cake that was so so good! And a scrumptious cherry pie. Their whipping cream comes in supersize cans. Also 2 carrot cupcakes, an individual turtle cheesecake, 4 was all so very good!!! It was all for my fam...I didn't eat it all myself!

D.B. Cooper

Amazing baked goods going back to try the lunch!

Nancy Otaño

Best pies!

Jeremy Greene

Great place that makes pasties. It is hard to find them locally. They have beef, chicken, and vegetable pasties.

T Ehis

It's too bad the pastries has to hold up the entire business because if the business depended on the workers it would fall if you blew on it...The customer Service is HORRIBLE!!! (Kaitlyn)most of the time. If the business only wanted green money from certain customers they could do themselves a favor and post a huge sign....Great tasting pastries though...just too BAD!!! 2 Stars for the pastries!

Brenda Honeycutt

Always love Marilyn's. Best cakes and pies around!

Charles Brenner

Best bakery ever!!!

Veronica Hui-Rodriguez

Amazing baked goods!! Since it's strawberry season, we were able to get a dozen of their strawberry donuts. We also go their strawberry cheesecake and some chocolate chip cookies. They also sell coffee, espresso drinks, tea and hot chocolate. They sell honey, canned drinks and bottled drinks too. Wonderful place to get a lunch or dessert & coffee.

Anita Tumblin

Delicious pies

Megan Thall

Overall meh. WAY too much ice in the chia tea latte that was already lacking flavor. Kolachki cookies had a nice apricot filling, but were too heavy on the dough.

MaryJoan Martin

Great bakery.!! Nice pies two sizes Fantastic cookie walk. Well run and can bring your own containers. Large variety

ty olin

Vegetables priced great, just wish they had different ones

Nick Grewal

Tasty pies. They had run out of apple though so i was sad

Abby Layer

Marilyn's did the cake for our wedding last weekend. From the very start, they were great about working with us to achieve our vision. The cake looked beautiful and was exactly what we were looking for. It tasted even better than it looked - all of our guests were raving about how tasty the cake was! Would highly recommend Marilyn's for all of your bakery needs!


Great, fresh food. A nice atmosphere and quite a good experience overall. I will be visiting again and recommending it to others

Crystal Castrejon

This bakery is super cute ❤️ Shoutout to Cathryn and her team, they made sure to make my Tiffany blue box birthday cake delicious from the inside (super moist) and outside! Keep up the great work

Anthony Zychal

I tried to preorder a cake for my girlfriends birthday. The cake decorator called me back the next day to say that the design idea I had couldn't be done on such short notice, but offered me her suggestions on what they could do. I gave her my requirements for a fresh, light and airy and not to sweet of a cake and asked her to be as creative as she could to capture the theme I wanted. A couple days later I picked up the cake and was really impressed and excited about it. It was beautifully done, not too sweet and everyone who had a piece of the cake said it was the best cake they have had. Thank you so very much Marilyn's Bakery. I will be sure to stop in again soon.

Ken Krupinski

outstanding pies. better than any around. I'd given up on pies a time ago but a few slices of these brought me back!

Jae Lo

Amazing goods, with an excellent price.

Demi M

Rude staff and dry donuts.

Stephanie Miller

Great pies and cakes.


The atmosphere in this bakery is amazing; as are all of the pasteries.

Nitaz Golden

The place was nicely, invitingly arranged with sweet treats all around. The staff was helpful. The lady assisting us was able to find what we were looking for in the freezer. We were provided directions on baking it. While we have not tried this Very Berry pie yet, I'm looking forward to the experience.

Aaron Rogier

Very good donuts

Kesha Ali

I've been going to Marilyn's for the past 12 years and they always do a great job at customizing my daughter's birthday cakes, and cupcake cakes; and by the way it taste really good too.

Good Vibes

Not having the prices listed is an annoyance to me.Serving a chocolate mousse cup without plate ,spoon and a glass of water is terrible service!The "fresh" cream was not made from scratch as advertised and there is a strong flavor of corn starch in the merengue,plus is moist and soft instead of crispy.

Debra Stacy

Have the best pasties

James Woods

What bakery that doesn't make bread. Definition of bakery is a place that make bread!!!!! An cakes/ pastry good stupid place....

Joni Jacques

The best!

Melissa Burbes

Just the sweetest staff, the most amazing treats, and a mean cup of coffee. Fabulous.

Kari Manning

Very good service, delicious kolackis, and they have German chocolate cupcakes! !!

Donna Faitak

The absolute best

Ashley McKamey-Franz-Ruvalcaba

Some of the best fresh baked muffins ever

Sam Malkowski

This bakery is adorable and delicious. I've been here for breakfast two weeks in a row now and I intend to keep coming. The staff is friendly, everything is fresh and flavorful. And it's affordable! You have no excuse to not eat local with this bakery in our neighborhood

cindy conley

Cakes, scones well made, very very good quality and taste

Mike Replin

Love the pies!!!!

Dave Phillips

Fast and friendly service

Micheal Anderson

Always love even if they were out of pumpkin pie

Joseph Bird

Awesome staff and food. Whether you are getting breakfast, or picking up some sweets, always great to stop by

Amber Zappia

Great iced coffee,donuts,bakery goods.little play area for kids. Fresh produce

Sarah Gawel

Fresh, quality delights with a cutesy “seat yourself” atmosphere. This spot has the potential to be a lovely, relaxing sit down eatery.

Katie Dahlberg

My family comes to Marilyn’s for all of our event cakes....birthday, graduation...etc. We usually have a great experience and would recommend this place to anyone. Today, however, I made a call to see if they had specific cakes in stock that I could pick up. After being told they did and asking for them to be pulled aside and assured they would be, only half my order was there with no call to let me know. The service that was given was rude and so off putting that rather than driving the 30 minutes it takes to get there, I will be considering other options in the future. While the taste is good, the service could be way better.

Pp Rocks!

Fantastic Beef and Barley soup! Cheesecakes and cupcakes to die for!

Richard Jordan

Everything here is delicious !

Samuel Laker

This is the place in NWI for a quality pie or cake. There's coffee, soup, fresh bread and cupcakes. I'm a fan of small bakeries, and no one is going to complain about a box of goodies from Marilyn's!

Randy Phelps

Very good pies and pastries but just a little to pricey
