We absolutely love Herman's bakery the staff is so knowledgeable and friendly!!
Good for strawberry shortcake birthday cake yummy
Wasn't greeted and the young lady who waited on upon her handing my purchase made me feel like she didn't want my skin to touch hers.
MY HUSBAND ORDERED MY BABY SHOWER CAKE FROM HERE AND IT WAS WINNIE THE POOH. THEY DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB ON THE CAKE AND THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL WAS WONDERFUL. I ORDERED ANOTHER BABY SHOWER CAKE FOR A COWORKER AND IT WAS WITH BABY BOOTIES. I ORDERED IT IN PURPLE BUT THEY DID IT IN PINK. I EXPLAINED THE PROBLEM AND THE BAKER DID THE CAKE OVER RIGHT AWAY. THE PURPLE CAKE TURNED OUT AMAZING AND TASTED DELICIOUS. I WILL DEFINITELY ORDER MY BABY GIRL'S FIRST BIRTHDAY CAKE FROM HERE.
I visited the place to buy some bread and found the best Baklava here. They Provide Perfect customer service here.
Cakes are always good. Staff is friendly. Little slow on this particular visit but still very accomodating.
Haven't been to Herman's since I moved out of the area. Was able to get back finally. Great place. Clean, inexpensive, very friendly staff.
Great service and food. I always have them make birthday cakes and pick up donuts.
O my god all their pastries are to die for and a great deal on their donuts very very fresh
Good place to purchase fresh traditional American flavored cakes pies and cookies
Bake goods are the best around. Very friendly place
Donuts are the best
Was picking up cake for niece 1st b-day h they did a great job
Best cheesecake ever! I travel to get my birthday cheesecake. Super friendly staff
It was busy but very fast. Staff was super friendly. We bought dougnuts, strawberry shortcake 6in. and cupcakes , that were just made that morning. My daughter loved the cupcakes. She said the best that she had. We left and my daughter said i can't wait to share that cake of yours. I laughed and said ah I'm not sharing. I had to turn around so she could buy her own cake. My grandparents lived in Highlandtown when I was growing up and Herman's marshmallow doughnuts was always at their house. Today they taste exactly as they did when I was a little girl and brought back so many sweet memories. It was cool to share Herman's with my daughter today.
I love the service, they make the best and most beautiful cakes I've ever seen!! I love their donuts, pastries and cookies too!! This is the best bakery around!! I get all my special cake orders from them!#
Very beautiful baby shower cake I bought
Great selection of cakes
Customer Service was great. Strawberry Shortcake was awesome. The large eclairs werent so good. The young lady behind the counter promised me they were fresh but id they were freah they were very very dry. I only made it through two bites and tossed it. I would not buy again or recommend.
We had a cake tasting in July. We were helped by Courtney and she was very helpful in our decision making process. She took the time to find out pricing and ask about specific details that we requested. Everyone was very kind and attentive that day. Thanks for a great cake tasting! We decided to go with 3 cakes and 2 dozen cupcakes ...the flavors are too good to have just one flavor :)
My 1st time at Herman's. Staff greeted me when I walked in the door, very friendly. My boyfriend wanted a strawberry shortcake, said they had the best. It was was very good.
Best baked goods ever from the chocolate to cookies rite down to the strawberry shortcake and birthday cakes
Best cakes in the world.
This place is amazing! Family run business with the best people!!! Came in on a busy night with my son had to wait a bit to order a cake but Adrian was so awesome. She gave my son some cake rings while we waited then even let him look at some monster truck images online with her. She printed him a monster truck photo which really made his day! Their cakes are so tasty too. Showed them a crazy cake design that we wanted and Adrian said she would over see the cake design to get it perfect. I am so impressed with Herman's!!! Cant wait to see my son's birthday cake. Thanks a million Herman's Bakery and the awesome people that work their. -Rachel Q
Get their Marsh mellow Donuts
Best cakes around. Walk in and cases of goodies.
Best Strawberry Shortcake ever!! Everything is so reasonably priced too!
I had a fantastic experience at Herman's Bakery today. They were able to fulfill a birthday cake order for me quickly and put time and care into helping me with balloons and so forth to make my boyfriend's birthday extra special. I can't say enough about their products and customer service. My experience was perfect . I have been a life long customer of this bakery and will continue to be for years to come.
I come from Harford county to get their Strawberry shortcake!!
Amazing strawberry short cake, and chocolate covered strawberries
Strawberry shortcake out of this world
I always like to support local business, especially somewhere like Herman's which has been in Dundalk for longer than I've been alive. Unfortunately the service here has gone downhill. The cashier was not friendly at all and actually seemed miserable like she didn't want to be there. She also didn't seem knowledge with prices, etc. The quality of our cake was just not that good in the end for the price.
Terrible, stale cakes and pastries. My husband and I were so disappointed when we went to eat our goodies and they were both so dry and stale we couldn’t eat them. They have a “Day old” shelf and I believe these should have been put on there. They were not fresh by any means:(
Best Strawberry Shortcake ever! Also love the star cookies!
As always, perfect ! I recently bough a cake for my son's 7th and daughter's 1st Birthday parties. The cakes were so fresh, decorated exactly how I asked! I have been getting cakes here for years and as always I am pleased!
My daughter needed a special birthday cake and it was best served here.
Herman's Bakery gives me super fond memories of my childhood. My Daddy used to take me to get their FAMOUS strawberry shortcake. We used to go to the Eastpoint Mall location. He loved it just as much as I did. I'm happy to say that it still tastes exactly the same as it did years ago!
I went to Hermans to order a sheet cake and 2 dozen cupcakes for my daughter's baby shower. They did a great job on her wedding cake so i thought it would be the best place to order. I went in and a little lady by the name of Morgan took my order. She was very pleasant and friendly. So i picked out my image which was a unicorn and told her to put blue eyes and a purple banner made from fondant on the bottom with what i wanted written on it. I asked for the unicorn horns to be fondant also so that it would all be edible. She puts everything in and reads it back to me perfectly. I go in on Saturday to pick up my cake and i had no banner. It was written right on the cake. I told the lady they did it wrong and she said if i wanted to wait she would have them fix it. I told her i had a party to set up and no time to wait. When we went to set up the cake at the shower i realize that the horns were plastic. I was really disappointed. Like they had from the 11th to the 21st and couldn't get it right. Second off i called the store and ask for the manager and was told they dont have a manager. Then she took my complaint and looked it up and said i wasnt charged for the banner or fondant horns. I paid $100. And didn't get what i ask for. The only reason i gave 2 stars is because the cake was good. Never again. Next time i will take my business elsewhere. Still no phone call from whoever she talked to about my complaint. Guess they just dont care. Well they just lost a customer.
OMG how yummy is those Strawberry Shortcake's? Never found one better! Oh and the Marshmallow, Mmmmmmm :)
Courteous service, delicious desserts, must try the turn-overs.
Strawberry cake is to die for.
Love the canolli. We have been coming here for 30 years. Everything is very fresh. The Lemon meringue is amazing. They make beautiful birthday cakes as well
Always gotta get my dad's fix on cake here. His birthday cake always comes from here. Price is so worth it! Always so nice.
I love this place and Javier made my vision come true
They have the best strawberry shortcake. I've been coming here for nearly 30 years, and always get one for any birthday. They catered for my wedding too, and made an amazing and delicious cake.
Herman's Bakery is the only bakery that we use. We have used them for many birthday parties including our son's college graduation. They are the best! They are very professional and so patient. They are very creative. I love this place. I give them 10 STARS. K. Gresham :)
A great place 2 satisfy a sweet tooth
Always a crowd pleaser! Family owned for 93 years, and it shows! Happy employees, excellent service and even better baked goods, small, large or special order!!!!!!!
I ordered a 1/2 a sheet birthday cake for my daughter's birthday. She picked out a JoJo Siwa picture(edible image) when I went to pick up the cake I told the woman that it didn't say "Happy 6th Birthday" it clearly read "Happy 6+ Birthday" she looked at the cake and looked at me and shrugged her shoulders and said "it looks like it to me" I was so shocked. I thought she would of at least offered to redo it, but nope just walked away. I have always gotten my cakes from there, but I may rethink it next time. ****Also, the cake was hard as a rock the day after(for a $65 cake I wouldn't think that would happen when I followed the directions on how to store it)****
Strawberry Shortcake & Peach Cake are awesome. The donuts are great, as well. I ordered a cake from Herman's for my daughter's birthday and it turned out gorgeous! I could not believe how pretty it was. I didn't want to cut it. Always a fan of Herman's Bakery.
Me and my family use order cakes from here whenever we had an event or just wanted something sweet. Unfortunately I bought a slice of chocolate for $2.50 and I didn't realize until after I ate about a quarter of the cake that it was badly molded, I called to let them know and the only thing I was offered was a refund. How about a "I'm sorry" and offer you another slice for free or something of that nature? The employees have always been nice and helpful but sometimes they would have little attitudes. But because of this incident I will not be returning.
Beautiful custom cake. Very fresh
Desserts are always fresh and delicious. Twice I've waited til the last minute to place orders and Herman's came through and at a much more reasonable price than most people would think.
Best strawberry shortcake in the state!!
Good selection of goodies
We've been ordering cakes for our church from them for years now. The staff are helpful and courteous
You can not beat their Strawberry Shortcakes. All the goodies are great honestly. My dad loves the turnovers, I love the black bottoms and everything we have tried has been really good. They do lots of cakes and such as well!
After years of my family using Hermans. I have never had a single complaint. They are the best.
Loving the marshmallow doughnuts.
They have the best marshmallow donuts and pecan sticky buns. Friendly staff. Always clean.
Mmm The Best Strawberry Shortcakes
They do such a wonderful job. I have had my gender reveal cake my mom had my baby shower cake done here and I had my daughter's baptism cake done. I definitely getting her birthday cake done as well. They are so delicious and prices are just right. Thanks Hermans!
Best bakery around
Herman's is the absolute final word in bakeries around here. If you're looking for a place to get great baked goods at great prices with fantastic service, this is the place to be.
A Dundalk staple, great cakes, donuts, pastries!
Always get beautiful birthday cakes there.
Outstanding sugarfree strawberrie cakes and birthday cakes
Beautiful and delicious cakes . Nice and friendly staff.
Bought a piece of strawberry short cake as a valentine's day dessert for a friend of mine as well as a couple other things. People are very friendly and helpful. I have also gotten a couple birthday cakes for my daughter's birthday over the last couple years. It is a family run business that is very well known
Love this place!!! Always get my sons bday cakes from here every year! Plus stop in and get yummy donuts ...marshmallow ones are my fave!
I crave the overflowing marshmallow donuts. We've also gotten a few sugar free cakes here for my grandmother and she loves them.
The strawberry shortcake was my father's favorite for 25 years. We came to town to visit relatives and HAD to stop by and buy a cake. It didn't disappoint. Still amazing!! Their black bottoms are incredible, too!
It's a nice local bakery which unfortunately we don't have many of those anymore.
The strawberry cake and gingerbread cookies are really good. The peanut butter cookies were good too. Just a little dry for my taste.
Great treats!!! A what seem to be grocery store pricing. Who would have figured*?
Best cheese cake ever been getting it since I was a kid
This place has THE ABSOLUTE BEST Strawberry Shortcake in the area! I drive clear across town to purchase it!
Went to Herman's bakery for a Birthday Cake. When we cut it was very dry and very old. I can't believe I played 26.00 for that cake.
Always a pleasure going here!
Best bakery in Baltimore.
They have the best strawberry shortcakes ever! This was my daughters bday cake we had whipped icing and strawberry’s inside it tasted great just like the strawberry shortcake!
This place is great !!!! I love there fondant I’ve been ordering for 3 years so far and planning to get so much more ! There decoration in cake is spot on !
This place is a museum for bakery. Very consistent. A Dundalk landmark.
Not a fan. Cakes are very dry and overly sweet. Decorations on the cakes are below average!
Best strawberry short cake you can find. Nice girls there . Even on a early Sunday Morning
Need more of a selection but what they have is good. Last of the old town bakerys.
I've gotten birthday cakes from here for many years now. But this last time was awful, first they made the wrong size cake for my son's birthday and we had to come back the day of his party at 8am to get the right cake. The lady put it in on one place right an one place wrong. The girl getting our order noticed it. I actually bought 2 cakes an while they did both look good they both just didn't taste as good as their cakes used to. Everyone at the party was talking about how different they tasted and how kinda bland it actually tasted. An as for the mess up how the lady refused to acknowledge that it was her fault an try an blame us is what really made me decide I'll go elsewhere for our cakes next year, sad that it was like that there this time. Plus I dunno when they started charging for icing on your cake but we had a separate charge for the icing, isn't that supposed included in the price of the cake?!
They have marshmallow filled chocolate covered pastries, peach cake, eclairs, gingerbread cookies.
Great people. They do wonderful work. Definitely go there to get your cakes for any occasion!!!
This will be my third time purchasing a cake from here each time I have been satisfied with my purchases the staff a really friendly and nice the ladies of the front are sweet no punt intended Javier was nice and make sure that we were taken care of
They have the best baked goods. I have been going here for years. I go there especially for there German chocolate cake no one else makes it like Herman's.
Best bakery in Baltimore!!
This place is a joke. I would not recommend this to anyone. The staff is ignorant and has no knowledge as to what an appointment is. I'd buy a little debbie to ever going back to this place.
Herman’s Bakery has been proving delicious bakery items for many many years with excellent service. Whether you need a wedding cake, specialty birthday cake or just a donut & coffee, Herman’s is the place to go!
Ok for baked goods. Prices too high for birthday cakes.
It's not the same anymore it's old and shows it's age
I love their strawberry shortcake
Herman's is my go to bakery for everything.Great service from the time you place your order, to the time you go and pick it up. THE BEST BAKERY IN TOWN. If you haven't tried them yet, you're definitely missing out. FRESH..FRESH..FRESH. Very nice staff. Thank you to everyone associated with Herman's Bakery.
My child loved this cake and was totally surprised and happy.
They have the best strawberry shortcake. Everything tastes great and all my special cake orders turn out beautifully. They always exceed my expectations. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
Really enjoyed the service and conversation
As always their awesome.
Customer service is great and their pastries are so good and especially their cheesecakes. The owner and the ladies they know how to bake and decorate it's just so good. I got this blueberry cheesecake pastry it's to die for sooo soft sooo fresh and tasty.
the cake here sucks and its really expensive, additionally its very dry and way too sweet honestly i was very unhappy with my purchase and would not recommend
Friendly staff, that go out of their way to help you find whatever you need. Delicious baked goods, made the old fashioned way! Great prices, too. My favorite bakery.
JAVI is by far the best i never have problem when i come in and order my cakes. OMG he is the best!!!!!!!!!!!! He knows i love my cake FRESH AND ITS ALWAYS FRESH. THANKS JAVI YOUR THE BEST MUAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Love there marshmallow donuts!
Always great tasting baked goods. Especially the Strawberry Shortcake. But that's only one of my favorites.
Best fresh coconut cake ive ever found. If I lived near by I'd have some every day!
The cakes make them delicious, the only problem is that they don't do the measure you order, the two times I ordered I paid for a smaller measure they cheated me both times and they charged me for what I was not, I'm disappointed in this place I will never return!
Two words: marshmallow donut
Love my fudge top cookies!
This place is awesome the best bakery around this y I ride from Rosedale to dundalk
Love this place. Just like when I was a kid. An original bakery. Great bake goods. Nice people work there.
Independent bakery with lots of delicious baked goods. Everything from the classic banana cream pie to amazing peach cake. A must stop if your in the area and need something sweet.
We got our 4 year old his birthday cake from here and it was absolutely amazing! It was so cute and the decorations made our son super happy and excited about his cake! It was half chocolate and half vanilla and to be honest both options were just as delicious as the other!He even took the balloons off of the cake and held them for a good hour after we had cut the cake. They ended up being decorations for his new big boy bike! Thanks so much for the awesome birthday cake for our son!!!
Posted a review a year ago when it happened but it looks as tho it was deleted. April 2018 we used Herman's for our wedding cake. I found a design online that I liked and asked if they felt comfortable doing it. They clearly weren't qualified.
This is a very nice old fashioned bakery that has been around forever. They do quality work for birthday cakes and things like that, and their strawberry shortcake is the best. They are easy to find and have plenty of convenient parking. Their prices are reasonable and the service there is very good. I have always been satisfied with my purchases and my 4 year old loves this place. I definitely will be shopping there again.
This place I love
Beautiful, yummy baked goods and a friendly staff. They've been around a long time for a reason.
Fresh donuts and friendly service. Never a wait which I love.
The best cakes, and eclairs in the area! Good donuts too!
Herman's Bakery is my "Go-To" for all things cake!! They are very reasonable in price and their cakes/cupcakes are always DELICIOUS!!! I ALWAYS order from Herman's for all occasions/events. I bought cakes for my co-worker's birthday and anniversary and everyone raved about the cakes. You can't go wrong with Herman's Bakery!!!
Herman's strawberry shortcake...none better
Strawberry shortcake the best. Not many bakers left
Our family has gone to Herman's for baked goods for 3 generations! Other places come and go but Herman's stays. Must be doing something right!
Awesome! Freshly baked dessert, cookies, pies, cheesecake, omg delicious!!
Very friendly staff. Beautiful looking deserts displayed will make you want to buy up everything. Hats off to the chef, the sugar free strawberry short cake is to die for...delicious!!!
Great tasting cake. Been getting cake from there since I was a little girl they also have a great selection
I love the strawberry shortcake but everytime I go in everything seems kinda empty. It may just be me though. Also the black bottoms are great!
Consistent baked goods love going there.
I stopped in on a Sunday, Father's Day to be exact. I was going to visit my grandmother not far from there and wanted to grab her something small to acknowledge her birthday that was approaching on the 20th. I got 4 red velvet cupcakes, one balloon (which deflated moments later) and a card totaling about 16 dollars. The cupcakes were good but 16 bucks I thought for a small purchase is rather pricey. I didnt expect that coming from what had the appearance of a whole in the wall establishment and the customer service is poor. I wouldn't go back.
I came in to inquire about a cake for my girlfriend's birthday. It was a hot day, and either their AC was broken or they don't have AC. Needless to say, it was brutally hot in there. There were flys throughout the shop. I was mostly basically ignored for quite a while when i walked in, even though there was almost nobody else in there. It seems the girls working there were more interested in gossiping than helping customers. The girl that did help me was nice, and i had spoken with her on the phone prior to coming in. The only bit of positive experience I had is credit to her. I wanted a quote on two cakes, and she went back to talk to the baker. I could hear the entire conversation, because they were literally just standing 5ft away behind a partition talking loudly. The baker in particular was being pretty unprofessional about it given the way she was speaking and the fact that i could obviously hear everything they said. The quote was absurd for what I'd asked for. I finally left after probably 1+ hours, with two cupcakes to sample (which I'd purchased). They both were very low quality and immediately made me sick to my stomach. I will never go back here again.
Soooo yummy! The cakes, breads, and donuts are amazing. Always fresh, always delicious, and beautiful to boot. The days leading up to a holiday, there is a wait, but the line moves quickly and the staff is very pleasant. There are tables where you can sit and enjoy a coffee and snack.
Another beautiful cake made! They always give me exactly what I ask for. They go above and beyond every time I visit!
My mother, Grandmother,and Great Great Grandmother has bought me and all my siblings deserts here at Herman's for 49 years that I know of. They have always been the best that you could get anywhere in the Baltimore area, I mean the best !!! I'll keep the tradition going as long as they're around !!! Do yourself a favor and try it, and you'll never be sorry you did !!! The strawberry shortcake is out of this world, my favorite of all !!! They always get 5 stars from me !!! Fred L. Darby
Love Love Love the marshmallow donuts!
One of the best bakerys in town. I've been coming here for yrs especially for all my birthday needs
This 1 star is based off of the key lime pie I bought for a party this weekend. I was in the neighborhood, and decided to pick something up for a party I was going to. I saw there was key lime pie on the menu, so decided to get one, as it is my favorite dessert ever! When I cut into it at the party, I was immediately disappointed I had purchased it before ever even tasting it. It was filled with bright neon green jelly like goo. It was absolutely artificially flavored and colored. It tasted like the cheap pie filling you can buy in a can at a grocery store (I know because I made the mistake of buying a can one day. gross). Even the beautiful meringue that topped the pie tasted horrible. It had a weird dense marshmallow consistency instead of light fluffy meringue. I ate one bite and called it quits. I do not know about anything else in the bakery, but if they use cheap artificial ingredients for the pie, I can imagine they do the same for everything else.
Amazing strawberry short cake and poppyseed roll! Great service!
Love everything ❤️ But my favorites would be strawberry shortcake and peach
We waited about 15 minutes before we were helped by someone to place our cake order. Kind of pricey, however, they can make ANY cake request. Family owned!
Best bakery around!! Lots of variety! Delicious!!
Bought a strawberry cake for my birthday present. Delicious. So moist and big strawberries. Icing was spectacular. The best I ever had. Thanks.
Love this bakery, get all my birthday cakes and holiday treats. Best barley I've ever been too.
Ive been going here for over 30 years. Great and friendly staff..great prices and amazing pruducts. If youve never had their smear cake..its like cheesecake than you HAVE to try it. But be warned...its VERY addictive and beat serves chilled. Im actually writing the reveiw beacuse I just got back from there today with my mother whos been going there even longer than I have. Well they had a fresh pan os smear cake and wanted to grab 3 pieces. They are big pieces. Well the young guy was very nice..braught it out so I could choose my 3 pieces cause Im not a huge fan of the corners. Now mind you Ive been going there my whole life and as with them and any bakery..Im able to choose the slice I want..or the cupcake or tart or cookies or whatever it is Im buying they always let me and any customers choose the piece. Obviously I want the piece most enticing to myself. As anyone would. Well the manager who mind you has ALWAYS let me choose what Id like.. was in a grouchy mood and as she walked by I was telling my mother to also pick out a piece for herself so at this point I wanted to purchase a half of a tray and she overheard and stopped and told me and my mother that we cannot just pick and choose the pieces that we want to buy. Very rudely...and very unprofessional to bring your bad day and attitude out onto the customers..let alone as loyal as 2 customers as the store could have. I felt VERY disrespected and told the young guy helping us that actually were not even going to purchase the smear cake pieces now. She can just loose the sale and potentially 2 very loyal customers. I wouldnt have baught the tarts or peachcake if it wasnt already boxed by the young guy that served us. He kept apologizing as he also knew how rude it was. And also that picking what most entices you is also your right as a customer in a professional custom bakery like Hermans..as did the customer that was right before us did as well..she didn't say anything to her. I really love this place and love the products..they really are the best and last good bakery around but Im not one who likes dealing with people like her and am not sure what we will decide to do in the future regarding going back but I just wanted the owner to know cause that very bad for business. Ive never spent less than $40 per visit and go Atleast once a month so I am a very loyal customer not including the rest of my family who also grew up going there and still do. I hope this is a one time accurance. I wouldve love to be enjoying some smear cake for a snack tonight but itis what it is. Thanks. Hope the review helps.
Old time bakery with old time recipes. Strawberry shortcake is the best. Cakes are delicious and look amazing. Good place to stop in for a donut or cookies on the way home.
AMAZING-BEST DESERTS EVER. ALWAYS RECOMMEND
Got a birthday cake for my daughter... not what they used to be cake was dry and frosting didnt tadte like it used to more like store bought... was pretty at least
Love the birthday cake from here very tasty
