REVIEWS OF McLain's Bakery IN Kansas

Libby Dowdall

This is the perfect place to meet up with friends or family for coffee and breakfast. I'm hooked on their coffee cakes and the famous cup cookies!

Dee Hartman

Sunday morning was busy but the wait was so short I barely had time to decide what I many divine choices! It was my first time visiting McLain's but it will be my bakery of choice when I want freshness, quality & the nicest employees! I purchased pastries but their full menu looked equally amazing!

J.L. Clemente

Best bakery items! Must try the strawberry muffins and chocolate eclairs!

Libbie Bond

Love McLain's. Can't go wrong with a coffee and The American breakfast sandwich. They're usually busy, but the line goes fast!

Kent Seaton

Some of the best danish in all of KC.

Kirsten French

Great pastries, friendly and helpful staff! Love this place!!

Julie Harding

McClain's did an incredible job with the cakes for our daughter's first birthday! We don't live in KC but wanted to make sure we could celebrate her birthday with the whole family so we decided to celebrate on Thanksgiving. They didn't think twice when I asked for a Hawaiian theme cake and smash cake. Aside from the cakes looking exactly like what I asked for, they were incredibly delicious! Everything was perfect and McClain's will continue to be my cake "go to".... Oh and they have the best chicken salad sandwich EVER!

Rebecca Francis

Truly love this place! For breakfast, for sweets, for custom cakes. The service is always awesome. Recently I bought a cake for my sister and was trying to pay over the phone. They ended up just handing it over for free so that she could get it to the party in time. Needless to say, I'll be back for all my cake needs forever. Just all around a big fan.

Kirk Provine

This is such a nice little bakery. The atmosphere was wonderful with a friendly up beat crowd. All the people in there we're comfortable and relaxed. They have baked goods as well as other food that you can order. I even heard one person ordering a custom cake to pick up later for what I think was a birthday party. We got some cookies and cupcakes to go.

Connor Francis

Ever since under new management, this place has been my go-to breakfast and pastry spot. They've given the whole atmosphere a face-lift from the appearance to their friendly and helpful staff to the changes in menu. McLains has been able to keep the feel of their 70-year legacy while also keeping up with the latest trends! 5-stars. No Question.

Christina Wolf

Really wonderful space, courteous staff and delicious offerings. My ham and cheese croissant was crispy on the outside, warm and savory on the inside with just a hint of heat and my capuccino was pretty and perfectly made. The vanilla 6" layer cake was exactly what I wanted for my birthday.

Dustin Smedstad

Awesome bakery and excellent coffee. Breakfast is great. In particular the plain and simple sandwich and biscuits and gravy are done wonderfully!

Amanda Argo

I am SO happy this bakery is down the street from our house. Their breakfasts are always delicious. I love their famous cookies and and pastries. Plus the space is perfect; I love being able to catch a glimpse of where the baking action happens.

Andrew Ryan

The danishes are wonderful. Get there early for the raspberry filled!

L K.C.Lifer

Can't go wrong with anything you buy.

Cliff Meek

It's McLain's. What more needs to be said. Seriously, they have the best pastries in town. What you buy was baked that morning with fresh high quality ingredients.

William Henderson

I found McLain's lacks diversity.... I was the only person of 26 (yes I counted) of color. Order yogurt and took extremely long for them to deliver... the coffee was delicious and hot.

On'Rea Knox-Lewis

Excellent services, staff, food and people....

Jodi Murphy

For my granddaughters 1st birthday we wanted special cookies make for the Wild One! They worked with me to make it happen. They turned out fabulous, delicious and adorable! It was the hit of the party! I would highly recommend them! Very nice to work with!

Ashly Kilz

Pretty tasty breakfast and bakery spot.

Eric Gunderson

Great cinnamon rolls!!!! Breakfast sandwich was good too. Definitely recommend this bakery.

Gragg Vaill

Excellent breakfast sandwich, I'm stuffed

Gentry Williams

I never liked apple pie. But MClain's Apple Pie is, Mmmmm! It has to be on my dinner table every day. And yes it is. Yay! Cant wait to try what's next on their shelf.

Amber Branson

My all time favorite bakery and awesome staff!

Amanda Standridge

I'm pretty sure they put actual crack in their pastries. The almond cheese pocket might be the most delicious thing I have ever tasted. Keep up the good work!

Ronald Grayson

Always Super great people n food

Natalie Miller

I’m not a pastry person, but the pastries here are really good! The cupcake I had was delicious. The cake was extremely moist and chocolatey and the buttercream was smooth and not too sweet. I’ve also had lunch here twice and both offerings were very good!

Sue Burton

Their Ham & Hash sandwich was PerFectO

Christine Dupriest

I have been coming here since it was on 74th with my parents.

Seiji Suenaga

The chocolate cup cookies are basically perfect.

Karli Cash

My family and I love McLain's their birthday cakes are my favorite! Their cookies are wonderful and their breakfast sandwiches are amazing! They are now open 7 days a week!

Ava Shipley

Friendly, clean, secure. Delicious meals. Great goodies. Love it.

Rachel Beck

McLain’s has the best pastries in all the land. The butter roll and cheese danish are my favorites. Any time we’re in town it’s our first stop!

Sam Unruh

McLain's is the best! The owners are fantastic and the food and drinks are amazing! This is a true Kansas City classic.

sequita richardson

Great birthday breakfast

Joel Holland

I discovered this place a few years ago and I love it. Their danishes are delicious and I love getting them early on the weekends. Weekends are usually their busy time but after your first visit you’ll understand why; the staff is lovely and polite, the food is delicious, and I am a fan of their outside seating. It is a local KC spot, for sure, but a gem none the less.

Jim Poplau

Bought a $32 white cake from the bakery. Told them it was my dad's birthday and he loves wedding cake. First- the cake did not have enough almond flavoring in it. Barely could taste the cake part. The frosting tasted like lard. Seriously- the sugar mix was horrible. Very disappointed that my dad's 82nd birthday was a bust with the cake. He was excited too. Not what I ever expected, considering I have purchased cakes in the past from McLain's and was happy. Don't buy your wedding cake here!

James M.

They took down their famous chorizo burritos so I had to make them on my own. However, they did serve good coffee with Thou Mayest. Not sure if that changed. Most go for the baked goods and cakes. We had McClain's baked our gender revealing cake and they clearly did a poor job. You can barely see the color in the middle which was not super noticeable. Maybe, the next cake might improve? I had a bad cake experience.

Madison Anderson

Staff was nice but the iced Americano and iced vanilla latte that we ordered didn't taste like it had any coffee in it. Gross!

Jonathan Pirnie

I install kitchen equipment and I just installed a proofer at McLains and I have done this for ten years so I want to tell you, when the crew goes home and they clean the back of the house, THEY CLEAN THE BACK OF THE HOUSE. I have never seen this in ten years. I would have no problem being a customer and buying their products. Thank You McLains and hope you enjoy your new proofer

Maureen Woods

Amazing... Cup Cookies for the win. I've been going here for over 30 years.

Brett Logan

Tasty breakfast dishes, pastries and cappuccino! Busy place, laid back / friendly staff, can be good for a grab and go, too, if that's what you want.

Ryan Beck

Simply the best

schylon kubic

The cookies are perfect every time! And they make a wonderful treat for my son after a dentist appointment.

Katie LaMartina

Pastries and cookies I have enjoyed for 31 years!

Bethany K

What a great place...pastries are out of this world. Atmosphere is wonderful. Definitely one of my happy places! Staff is always friendly and it is very clean as well.

Benjamin Gray

Very tasty pastries and he coffee drinks were also good. I had the chai tea latte and it had a very nice flavor. The cheese pastry was so good I'm dreaming about it right now.

Ben Walnick

Delicious food. Great drinks. Friendly staff. It’s everything you want from a bakery in the neighborhood.

Rachael Coffman

The most delicious pasties in Kansas City. Shout out to the amazing staff for blending food on-site for our don with special needs

Joyce Strange

Wonderful choices. Yummy bear claws. Choc drop cookies

Kathleen Hoff

This place is awesome! From their breakfast and lunches to their donuts and cake... and espresso!!! They do all so well! Never disappointed!

Kevin Tipton

Delicious Bakery. Friendly Staff. Clean Establishment. Lots of Options. Overall Worth a Visit but not the best in town!!! Update: Sampled Desserts again. Cookies were basic, dry and disappointing Cherry Danish was Light and Fluffy, filling tasted like it was from a can Banana Nut Muffin was decent, needed butter to make it moist.

Cindee Sheehy

Fresh and delicious! The best pineapple danish in the world, and the almond pocket was amazing!

Zoe Rickman

I come here all the time to get work done and drink iced chai lattes. I bring my family and friends and can't get enough of the lunch menu. EVERYTHING I have tried is DELICIOUS! I suggest the spinach salad! it's busy during the weekends and a great place to relax during the week!

Blake Swearngin

Came here on a friend's request. It was all amazing. They gave us a free burrito which was a very good mix of texture, spice and flavor in general. Cinnamon roll wasn't next level but it was delicious. This is the only place I have ever seen a pineapple danish and it was delicious. Staff was warm and friendly. I will definitely go back if I'm ever in the area.

Allen Schneider

Great bakery but crowded during rush.

Choco Holic

Always a positive experience when I come here. Food has always been delicious and the staff are always friendly. Love coming here!

Steven Lewis

Best cheese danish I've ever had great place with very friendly people

Andrew Berry

Great people, great atmosphere, best pastries south of the river

Mostafizur Rahman

I bought croissants, coffe cake, tea, sweet and danish from them to have a good taste of fresh baking. I was disappointed. Did not feel very fresh, very sugary. Compared to baking stores like Tour le Jours, this is way behind. Wouldn't be visiting again I think.

Katie Prewitt

We used McLain's Bakery for our wedding cupcakes. They were amazing! So moist and not too sweet, plus they were affordable! Amazing product for a great price

Brian Mason

Great pastries. The $5 dollar day old pastry box is the best. Breakfast sandwiches are the best I have ever had. No joke.

Tracey Thomas

This was the worst service I have every receive. DO NOT order from them thur doordash. I ended up paying 25.00 for this breakfast and did not receive my whole order. They told me in would have to pay a 1.50 for extra gravy. That ended up costing me 5 more dollars. Thanks doordash your rep riped me off. Also the biscuits were the size of the small biscuits you make at home. And then they were so hard (smothered n the extra gravy) That I could not even bit into them so I just ate the center.. I am now late for work still hungry and they did not give me the rest of my order. Thanks Mclains and dordash for starting my day off well! Feels good to waste 25 bucks n still be hungry!!

Kelly Flowers

Delicious pastries and coffee, as well as breakfast sandwiches. The staff is welcoming and provided great service.

Debbie-Sue Felton

We ordered a carrot cake for a Reveal Party and it was exceptional! Lovely and tasty cake. We had a chance to meet the creator, Gaby, of this magnificent creation. Gaby clearly understood what we wanted and she completely delivered for such a sweet and memorable event. Thank you, Gaby and McLain's!

Steve Bellis

Terrific place to stop for breakfast. A new favorite

Caitlin Laskowski

Wow! McLain's was amazing to work with in order to create the cake design we wanted for our wedding! My mom and I met with Megan at our tasting/design meeting and she was fabulous to work with. She helped us figure out what was best for the amount of people we were expecting at our wedding. She was confident in the design I wanted and made us feel at ease with her experience and kindness (we also planned for cookies and she helped us determine the best amount to get for those). Not only did we talk about the plans for the cake, but Megan took the time to chat with us and get to know us personally! The cake was absolutely beautiful, it tasted amazing, and we received MANY compliments on it. We're very glad we made the choice for McLain's to make our wedding cake and we're also looking forward to our one year anniversary cake! Thanks, Megan and McLain's Bakery!

Gail Alvarez

This place is awsome. Love their pastries and breakfast burritos.

Lathem Scott

Driving home (Northland) from meeting a friend at The Well, I ran across this shop and thought I would pick up some treats for MLK Day breakfast. We had several different pastries and the Snickerdoodle cookies. We loved everything and my daughters (15 & 11) asked me when I would be getting more. Will definitely stop by again when I'm in the area.

Jessica Folken

Fantastic local place. Everything from coffee to wedding cakes.

Patrick Ryan

Chocolate cup cookies

Jerry Hensel

Great baked goods. A Kansas City tradition. My daughter in law loves this place!

Dan Rodriguez

I just ate, not only the best danish, but the best pastry in my 43 years on earth. Next time I see my buddy that took me here, I'm going to smack him upside his head for not telling me about it sooner. MERCY!

Josh Ellis

Used to be a great place to go. Arrived at 10am on a Saturday and out of every single thing in the pastry case, and all milks.

Charles Williams

Best cinnamon buns I've had, not too dry and not too moist.

Christen Holloway

Great pastries good coffee. somewhat odd that there's no restrooms after paying $ 7 for a small cup of coffee and a pastry

Dion Doucet

The birthday cake and Cookie's we're fantastic,for my granddaughter party.

Patricia Garcia

McClain does not make a German Chocolate Cake... I bought one and it was a dark chocolate cake with coconut icing. I called and they corrected the error. Thank you

Derek Adamski

Great people, great service. I spilt l water, they cleaned it up immediately and didn’t act like I was an idiot. Yes!!!!! Oh and the coffee is good and just good vibes in general

Lisa Salazar

Always great food.

Kim Watt

One of the few places in town to get a great fresh croissant. I love their breakfast sandwiches and the accommodating staff. They are always so informative and kind. McLain's variety of goods is amazing: baguettes, cookies, custom cakes, mini cupcakes, french macarons, truffle bites, and good espresso. McLain's is definitely a fantastic destination for our family and friends; well worth the drive across town to indulge!

steve garrett

awesome danish and breakfast sandwich

Walter X

This place is amazing breakfast, coffees, the desserts addictive love it! Shatto Mocha extra shot of chocolate lord jesus

Donald Brain

I loved McLain's when it was on wornall. I would go for almost every holiday with my mother or grandmother to get some pastries for a dinner or breakfast. When they moved I was really worried but man, what a awesome decision. The old place was small and really just for picking up orders. This place is huge, modern, and actually serves food beyond pastries. I just ordered a pepper jack burrito. Looking forward to it. Oh and it's packed, but I got through the line really quickly. Both are good signs at 10:30 am on a beautiful Saturday morning.

Porg liberation movement

Small, local and good pastries.

Cole Blue

The absolute best birthday cake ever! Custom-made red velvet cake. Always moist, always delicious, the only kick in town where I can eat the entire plate of icing.

Eli Unruh

Best pastries around. I love these guys!

Laura Ragusa

Amazing Birthday Cake!! Ordered the White cake with chocolate mousse filling. It was moist and taste great!! Just moved to KC area and so happy to have found a wonderful, friendly bakery.

Miquelas Couture

I like the strawberry muffins, I wish they had them year around, the cheese danish are good as well

Jason Tobler

Breakfast sandwiches and burritos are awesome!

Anthony G

They do a good job trying to make customer happy and I used to be a very consistent cusotmer but the food here has fell off of a cliff. Everything is always cold and dry.

Steven Taylor

Food was average at best and the wait time was awful.

David Kriske

Awesome place to enjoy yourself!

Jess Mitchell

We used Mclain's for our wedding cake and it was amazing! All of the options were delicious and Megan was so helpful with the planning process and making it exactly what we wanted, it was the easiest decision of wedding planning. We love this place!

Adam Walker

Almost every time I go here I regret it. Something about their system for taking/filling drink orders usually results in them taking several minutes to fill an order for black coffee.

Paul Toigo

Everything tastes great, but don't expect anything to be warm even if they put it in the microwave.

Reginald Bland

They offer some of the best pastries I ever had, and the staff was very friendly and helpful

Trenton Dwyer

The ladies were very sweet, and the snacks are heaven


One star, because they have REALLY really bad pastries and my honey lavender latte tasted rancid. Took a couple bites of cookie, almond “croissant”, and morning bun before throwing away. Low quality, cheap ingredients and lack of technique are to blame. The croissant was pathetic and had the texture of a bun; real butter is not used. Just yuck. Atmosphere is also unorganized; no place to wait for coffee; staff pushing you out of their way. ONE barista making the coffee for the whole place! Just has a bad feel. I’m new to the area, so I’m confused why some KCers would ever return to this place. Even staff looks embarrassed by what they put out.

John LaRoe

For breakfast: the Plain & Simple (bacon & eggs on toast). Yum. Top it off with a chocolate croissant or fruit Danish. It's delicious!

Charles Nicek

Good place for coffee and breakfast

Micah Conkling

If you're looking for a good sweet-bread treat and cup of coffee, or you need to cater baked goods or a cake for a special occasion, McLain's is the spot. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is relaxing: a great place to get some work done or spend time with friends over cookies. There's a real dedication to being a local business, as evidenced by the KC Royals sugar cookies they made for the World Series. I'm partial to the danishes (raspberry especially) and their chocolate croissants are incredible. They also have a wide variety of coffee cakes, cookies, and breads. They serve Thou Mayest coffee and espresso, so on top of having great baked goods they offer the best coffee in Kansas City! One of (if not the) best bakeries in Kansas City!

Holland G Humphrey

Excellent local place for baked goods and breakfast.

Betsy Valentine

Best bakery in KC! Love there everything and the staff is wonderful!

JeanHelene Davis

DELICIOUS ITEMS. Everything not always in stock because they bake fresh. You can place an order in advance for occasions

Carolyn Case

The butter sweet rolls are the best I have ever eaten !

Mary Engler

My experience was very friendly and encouraging. I was immediately helped when I walked in the door and given great advice as to how my party would be successful for my guests. I love patronizing local businesses and McClain ' s has had our trust for years.

Hamster En ligne

I had a overall wonderful experience at this place from the years I ordered pastries there. That's what makes my last experience very disappointing. The customer service was wonderful (as always), but the vanilla cupcakes I picked up tasted old and dry. Since this is my first bad experience with their food, I'll just write it off as a off day for them until it happens again.

Michael Barr

The best danish I've had and the small community feel makes the experience even better.

Stephen Lampone

superb food and friendly staff

Mianna H

McLain's has pretty good food; at least the pastries are good. I haven't actually ordered from their lunch menu, but it looks good. I gave them 3 stars because they don't use sustainable practices. Everything comes on paper. Another problem is that their Internet is SLOW. I don't want to end on a sour note, so let me just restate the fact that they serve good food. Also, the atmosphere is nice - trendy and kind of hipster.

Josh Langel

Neat smaller items I've never seen before, but a number of selections were sold put on my visit. The items we got were very good though!

Rebekah Mayer

I love this bakery. Delicious pastries and Thou Mayest coffee - best little breakfast stop in the neighborhood.

Phil Singleton

Such a great place. Great coffee and the cinnamon rolls are the best I've ever had. Our kids love the seasonal cookies - most recently the 4th of July cookies. Breakfast sandwiches are decent too.

Yvonne Telep

Have been coming here for coffee and treats for years. Today had lunch and it was terrific! Amazing summer salad for me and delicious chicken burger with fries for my teenage daughter. Kudos to McLains. They are a lovely little establishment.

Susan Harper

We love everything!!!! From the signature cookies to the white cake to the apple coffee cake !!!! The list would be too long to describe all the delicious baked goods ! Simply the best.

Jeffrey T. Took

Great pastries and breakfast. We like going to McLain's and then taking a little walk around Waldo.

Je Me

I went for brunch and can't wait to have the Plain + Simple again (Bacon, Egg, Cheddar on English Muffin Bread). Cream cheese Danish and coffee melted my brain they were so good. Quick service, friendly, clean and great environment. It was busy, as expected.

Carl Bell

The food here is excellent! Definitely coming back for more.

Andy Caraway

The pastries are really good! I have only eaten something there other than sweets one time. The sandwich was unremarkable. A nice touch, however, was the fries that seemed as if they were just cooked from freshly prepared potatoes. I will continue to go back for the pastries alone.

Carol H

I just want to say again how MUCH I appreciate McLain's being our neighborhood bakery! It is SO convenient to have them just a few blocks up the road, and to be able to pop in for fresh-baked pastries or their wonderfully-priced day-old pastries. Absolutely everything they make is truly SCRUMPTIOUS, and all the folks behind the counter are so friendly, helpful and all-around awesome!! Thank you for being such great neighbors, McLain's! We hope you never leave, because we love having you in Waldo!

Gisela Fajardo Rodriguez

Coffee here is great and lots of seating space! Their cakes and pastries are a must try! My recommendation is their snickerdoodle cookie. One of the best I have ever had.


This is definitely a hidden gem of Waldo and a must see/eat. I strongly recommend getting there before 10am if you plan to go on a Sunday and eat in the restaurant! It crowds very quickly, and it’s easy to see why! The portions and quality of the food is amazing for the price you pay. The restaurant part is first come first serve for seating and is very quaint. I’m quite pleased with everything I had (cheese danish and biscuits & gravy dish). I’ll certainly be going back.

Aaron Hermosillo

Nice and goood food

Brandice Torre

Yummy but overpriced. I purchased 1 dozen mixed pastries and it cost $33.

Stephanie Simmons

Danish are delish and don't miss the pecan cookies. Chocolate are the classic but I prefer the white.

Sophia Dyer

We had the greatest experience here this weekend. We walked in with a group of 16 people and the staff welcomed and accommodated us without hesitation. Everyone's breakfast sandwiches and coffees were hot and delicious. The bakery was super busy but staff remained friendly and efficient! I can't recommend enough!

Victoria Jasion

In love ❤. If I could wake up every morning and eat cookies and coffee for breakfast I would. But it would have to be from McClains. It's an actual bakery! With actual people who care! Can't say enough good things. We got our wedding cake from here (when they were located on Wornall and just off 75th) and everyone told us it was the most delicious cake they had ever eaten.

Linda Stayton

Everything is excellent!

Eric Wade

I bought The Farm at McLain's Bakery!

Travis Ottele

McLain's Bakery has some of the best pastries in the area, in my opinion. They also offer fantastic breakfast and coffee options. The atmosphere is cozy, but there is still room for groups and families with young children without it feeling cramped. People often bring their dogs and enjoy the outdoor seating. I've occasionally purchased their boxes of day-old pastries at a discount to bring to work and share with my co-workers, who thoroughly enjoy the treats.

Beatrice Livingston

First time at the Overland Park location. Totally ignored and poorly attended. Not coming back again.

Donna Gross

I hate that I can't give a 5 star review but the service I received this was unacceptable. I left there almost regretting driving 30 miles to get my favorite cup cookies for my birthday. I stood there for a long time while a gentleman was serving a very indecisive customer. Once he was done with her, he walked off instead of acknowledging me. Then another woman behind the counter was finishing up ringing up another customer and was about to help someone else that hadn't been there as long. I had to but in and insist she help me. she did but she had an attitude. not happy

Bob Anthony

The new owners have not only done justice to the Kansas city classic bakery but I have to say improved tremendously on the old tradition. The expanded seating and menu makes Mclain's my favorite place for breakfast in town. The fresh baked goods are perfect for almost any occasion. The staff is consistently fast friendly and helpful. Limited parking can be challenging at peak times. Reasonable prices. When you get tired of all the chain coffee shops stop by and enjoy a true Kansas city orginal.

James Hunter

It was my first experience with McLain's Bakery. The place was packed, but service was prompt, cheerful, and fast! I can't wait to go back again next weekend. I had the market bowl with sausage. It was the perfect breakfast. If I had one complaint, it would be that they didn't seem to offer an option for non red meat... Such as chicken or fish. A lovely local spot that I would have given six stars, had I had an option.

Lee Snowden

Food was good. Hot drinks were great. Could be bit cheaper. 7 dollar breakfast burrito could have been 5.

Jenifer Johnson

The Fried Egg Sandwich outshines the desserts!! Amazing flavor and huge avocado pieces with a perfect layering of spicy with every bite.


Friendly service and good food.

Misty J

The almond-cheese is my personal favorite (I find myself fantasizing about it frequently), but I've tried several of their other pastries and cookies, and I've never had a single thing that wasn't delicious.

Denise Mitchell

Ordered a unicorn cake (almond cake with white buttercream frosting); the response time for the inquiry about size/pricing was prompt and helpful. The cake was absolutely gorgeous. The only "con" was that the flavor so light that it was pretty bland.

James Bair


Kaleb Sweet

The crowned jewel of Waldo. This has to be one of the best bakeries in Kansas City.

Matt Davis

I just got served a day-old Danish at 'fresh' prices. At 8am.

Virginia Flowers

Was not impress with the market bowl I had to wait to long for my order they forgot my order . I will return for the butter rolls

Erik Goff

Never been there Google!

Cara Koza

We did a dessert bar with cupcakes and cookies from McLains for our June wedding! Everything arrived on time and was delicious! The cookies were a HUGE hit because people could hold them while dancing. I definitely recommend McLains, they were easy to work with and their prices were reasonable!

Jeff McCracken

Excellent and a Kansas City institution.


Their customer service is beyond disappointing. Ordered a cake and began the process via email, in one occasion, it took them 3 days before they got back to me. Once the order is official, I'm instructed to call the bakery and make my payment. I called and a rude lady told me that they were not taking any orders right now. I had to explain to her that I had already talked with them and I was going to pay. Only after she realized what I was saying, she was happy to take my money. The day I arrive to the bakery to pick up my cake, this rude girl behind the counter tells me I need to stand at the end of the line and tell the cashier....SERIOUSLY? I spent 10 days going back and forth via email, I paid for this cake in advance, and they send me to the end of the line? I was not impressed with their customer service. For the money I paid ($$$) I expected much better treatment. I'm never ordering from here again.

Suzan Benefield

I can't say enough good things about this place. The staff was AWESOME, Jessica took care of us like we were royalty!! The pastries were unbelievable but my favorite were the almond danishes. They are so good I wanted to cry. As a matter of fact I can't stop thinking about ! You need to open a store in omaha!!! I would be your best customer!!!

Pennyspc Roberts

Fast and friendly! And all the goodies I bought were tasty

Jeff Schooley

Fast and excellent service. Delicious options for everyone.

Mary Welch

Breakfast is amazing, service is quick. The cupcookie is magical, and there's lots of space and tables to sit at. This is my favorite place to get breakfast close by, I'm lucky to be so close

Troy S

Good food and drink

Stephanie Petersen

Excellent staff, amazing baked goods, ample seating in an open ceiling environment. Convenient corner location just south of Brookside on Gregory. You can watch the baking happening right before your eyes with the open kitchen. Varieties of cookies, pastries, coffees and cakes on hand. You can order specialty cookies and cakes ahead of time online. In a hurry? Pick up a premade cake and they will write a message on it for you. Lots of cute non-edible gifts to browse. And did I mention the coffee?!? YUM Don't miss out on the day old pastries and breads for huge discounts, especially if you like to make croutons or bruschetta. Best bakery in town for a reason!

Matt Burasco

Holy $#!T, amazing, simply amazing!

Rachel Bauer

Stellar service!! I came into do a wedding cake tasting an hour late (complete brain malfunction on my part) and the staff was incredibly gracious and even went out of their way to make sure I was able to do part of a tasting while I was there. 100% recommended!


I have been looking for danishes, McLain's danishes are amazing. I will definitely be back for more!

Martha Davis

Everything was delicious. Had a mocha latte, so creamy. They make their own syrups, which is neat. Hubby raved over his veggie burrito. My farm breakfast sandwich was huge, had to save some for later.
