REVIEWS OF Sweet Magnolias Bake Shop IN Nebraska

Brittany Heybrock

I've always loved this bakery. The people are amazing and damn if their treats are better!they truly have figured out the recipe for delicious every single time. My husband and I love riding our mopeds up here in the morning to grab one of their incredible vegan treats... Yes, we stalk IG to get their first!

Alexis McClung

They never answer their emails and when they do it takes a week and a half. Poor way of doing business.

In my opinion the best bakery in Omaha. I don't often leave reviews but definitely check out Sweet Magnolias!

Lakenya Stinson

Awesome bakery! I will visit again when I come again from Des Moines.

Sarah Bush

Delicious goodies and really large portions. I generally hate cake donuts but I can't get enough of these cake donuts they are amazing! So is the cardamon sweet bread.

Shawn Kolterman

items are overpriced, tasty but expensive. Variety varies day to day, some items are everyday items. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

Sarah Connelly

Scones to die for! I have been ruined for all other Scones. BTW: THEY TAKE CARDS!!! Another reviewer said cash only, but that is incorrect, thank goodness. ** now serving coffee** Smart move!

Ethan Reinsch

The Smore's Bar is amazing.

Silas T.


The donuts are like no other. The best is their chocolate icing with sprinkles donut. The staff is busy baking when you go in, so not much interaction, but pleasant when checking out!

Jeff Posey

Their baked goods are amazing and the only thing that makes this a four star review instead of five is the complete lack of payment method other than cash. Most people i know don't even carry cash nowadays.

Clarissa Henderson

Great donuts! The sweet scones have icing on them, which might just be an American thing.

Barbara Favara

They used to be perfect in every way when the original owner and Amy, the next owner ran it and they both offered original, good-sized for your money and great-tasting pastries than just about anywhere but with the new owner the all-around food and service don't even come close. Prices are higher, you get much smaller sizes and they changed the original recipes. I haven't been there for a long time and don't plan on going back either. Very dissatisfied.

Courtney Clark

Tried three different bars from this bakery, loved the Cherry pie bar, the texture combination was perfect for the s'mores bar, and the lemon bar was simply perfect. We came too late in the day to try their donuts but will definitely be returning at an earlier time to get a chance for the cake donuts!!

Matthew Jones

You gotta ask??? They have the best baked stuff in the Midwest, for crying out loud...

Rachel Seefus

Amazing service!!!! Even better treats!

Khristy Biggs

Everything is wonderful here!

Matt Mason

The pastries here are pretty fantastic. The price is high, but for a locally-run place like this with quality baked goods, that's certainly worth it here.

Eric Jones

Perfect place to go for a quick dessert/pastry after breakfast at Lisa's. Nice, friendly staff.

Emily Masters

You have to go! Everything is good!


Not very friendly or helpful. Do yourself a favor and try a different bakery.

Kevin McGree

Great pastries, service was top notch, grab a scone, pastry, donut, or whatever delicious items they have. Snag a coffee to go with it

Dan Kuck SUMS Collective

I tried an assortment of bars for Valentine's Day, for m'lady. Crunchy where ya want crunch, soft and chewy bread pudding. The cookies looked amazing but I've got no regrets on my choices.

Sarah Swain

Barry Koebel

Marc Choiniere

Best bakery in town. Been going there for months and have never been disappointed.

Cindy Papstein

Best cupcakes in Omaha!

Jenifer w

Picked up a box of random deliciousness from this place, have not found anything less than super yummy. Textures are perfect, flavors are right on point, sweet items are not overly sweet, and the savory items are a great counterpoint. Additionally, the people at the shop were all very personable and happy to tell me about their items. No hint of smug hipster, but all the benefits of a well crafted product.

Kat Marie

Friendly people, and it smells amazing when you walk in. The assortment is great and taste better

F Armijo

Customer service is awesome and the treats are amazing

James Richter

Always the best stuff

Dez Daily Photography

I had a wonderful experience. Ordered an assortment of treats and they all were fantastic. The pop tart was to die for! Thank you so much!

Mary Kasl

Have been back several times for various treats, always has exceeded what I expected! Very cute shop, friendly people! Loved the cinnamon rolls, cranberry scones, and caramel cinnamon roll bread pudding

LutZen Reflections

All 10 items we chose were fantastic. Friendly staff.

Megan Turco

I absolutely love this boutique bakery. Super cute shop, friendly staff, and amazing treats. I literally DREAM about their vanilla bean cake.

Joseph Kenney

Have been going here for years. Unique offerings and sound baking techniques are the hallmark of this quaint little bakery near Cathedral on 40th Street. Best pop-tarts in the region. Most offerings are well above average. Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Matt Harrison

Amelia Prickett

SO good! Everything we tried was amazing and it's an adorable little place. This was our first time in and it just so happens to be my birthday. Little did they know, our trip in was setting the tone for the entire birthday-day but they faced the unknown pressure like true champs. I'm now caffeinated, full of sweet (and savory) pastries, and ready to face a day at the office... over an hour late.... because we loved Sweet Magnolias that much.

Josh Foster

Incredible scones, danish, and cinnamon rolls! Seriously - the breakfast here is amazing.. get some to take into the office! Their coffee cakes, cheesecakes, and cakes to order are phenomenal too!

Kaitlin Costello

Their savory scones are to die for! Also the bars, oh my those delicious bars. 10/10 would recommend.

Jordan Willett

Annali Leach

It was my first time here. I tried a knot and it was delicious. I'll definitely be back

Greg Keown

Everything is good. The Oatmeal Cream Pies are not only delicious, they also cured my male pattern baldness, fixed my marriage, and found my lost dog. GO THERE NOW YOU DUMMIES!!!!!

Stacy Auman

Great little bakery. The best blueberry scones i have ever had.

Mike Lester

Great artisan local bakery!

Theodore Spinks

Great little neighborhood bakery with some interesting creations. The cardamom knot had a really great flavor, and the cinnamon roll is fairly traditional but well done. Fast, friendly service on top of it all.

Wai Chan

Well priced bakery offering an assortment of goodies. There was a very high number of bars (lemon, bourbon pecan, etc) so good selection there. Their scones were good. The oatmeal cookie looked great but my partner got to it before I could try it. My gf adores their pecan bars. Parking is availableb for free on the street.

Beth Strominger

Delicious!!!!! I would’ve given them 5 stars, but the wonderful treats were pricey for me. We still bough them and enjoyed our splurge. I’m gluten-free and throughly appreciated the fantastic gluten free brownie. YUMMY!!!

Nate Crouch

They're really nice here and everything is absolutely amazing!

Conan Heelan

Gabriela Barber

We came for the cinnamon rolls (which did not disappoint) and stayed for the pecan bar. Heavenly pastries!!! We have never tried anything from here that wasn't FANTASTIC

Caroline Smith

What a cute little pastry shop in the heart of the city. Its a tiny little shop but it has such a home like feel and is so warm and welcoming. they really have up to date technology. They have many different flavors of brownies and cakes and pies. they are to die for! the staff is so nice and they facility is so clean and well kept. I highly recommend for all treats and goodies. a great little pick me up!

Margie Gazinski

The best bakery in Omaha, without question. I'm spoiled because I live in the neighborhood but be assured I've converted many from far off areas to Sweet Magnolias. The brownies absolute best I've ever had. Scones, cupcakes and amazing bars (Key Lime, Almond Joy, Toffee to name just a few). But the absolute incomparable item is their holiday decorated sugar cookies. Seriously works of art. And they make them for many Holidays throughout the year. Local, woman owned business is just the icing on the cake. Pun intended. The cakes are delish too!

Laurene Johnson

Stopped by for scones, left with those and a baklava knot. Some of the best baked goods we’ve ever had, anywhere! Wish we had bought more!

Bryan Hoybook

Staff not very friendly; seemed like my presence was bothersome. More interested in their tasks. Pastries were delicious however.

Stephanie Klement

Jessi Miller

Lots of fun flavored bars and other treats. Most treats were around $3.25 each with single cookies being a little less. Delicious stop—highly recommend. The salted caramel Bar was hands down everyone’s favorite

Charles Gresham

Karissa Lawman

The owners responded to my catering inquiry very quickly, and went above and beyond to accommodate my request on short notice. I don’t like to leave things to the last minute, but plans can change. Sweet Magnolia’s saved us, and everyone raved about the delicious assortment of cookies and bars. Honestly, the best bakery items I have ever had, in Omaha and outside of it. Will definitely be a happy, returning customer.

Kait Berreckman

Cardamom knots forever!

Brianne Martin

Sweet Magnolias is one of my favorite places in Omaha. They made my daughter's first birthday cake and it was absolutely beautiful and delicious. The donuts and scones are spot on amazing. It's a drive to get there from my home, but the 25 minutes is worth the delicious treats and great customer service.

Sara Stepan

THE BEST! Get the cardamom rolls if they have them.

Caitlin Purcell

This place is a small piece of heaven. The owners are friendly and dedicated. The food is impeccable. My favorites are the weekend savory scones, the pecan rolls, chocolate chip cookie dough sandwich, and their fruit scones. One time they had a banana, walnut, chocolate chip scone that stole my heart. <3 GO HERE! and go as often as you can!

Tom Scarpello

Might be the best cinnamon rolls i've ever had

Doree Daniels

I am in town from Huntsville, Alabama for the birth of my 1st grandchild! My daughter requested treats from here while in the hospital and I have returned again because they are all so good. I will visit at least a third time while in town and every 5 or 6 weeks to come. It is now a tradition as long as the "kids" are in grad school at Creighton. (PS- Grandma's fav are the lemon bars and Granpa's are the double filled choc chips). Enjoy!

Ryan Krieger

Absolutely. Delicious. Would highly recommend. Great customer service.

Braden Myers

Love this bakery! Got my graduation desserts from here and they were amazing! Kind employees and great service. Would highly recommend!

Mama Mac

Absolutely hands down one of the best bakeries in Omaha. If you're looking 4 delicious home baked goods, this is the place for you. Sometimes I think it's hard to find pastries, cakes, pies, cupcakes cookies and bars that taste like something you making your own kitchen. I've given up on buying cakes or pies from grocery store bakeries. Sweet Magnolias has phenomenal bars with real ingredients including butter. The desserts taste like something my grandmother used to make. At work, when we need a dessert bar, this is where we go. Trust me you won't be disappointed.

Haley Clark

Ann Newman

Just tried this bakery today! Fell in love! Great cookies, scones and donuts. No vegan options however :(. Will be back!

Regan McCoy

Simply delicious! Great service by all staff. They brightened my day!

Ethan Stout

Very polite staff, generous portions, delicious treats. Easily the best bakery Omaha.

Cindy talley

Cute little bakery that makes five star cinnamon rolls! Love so many of the bars that it is hard to choose, but the chocolate brownies are hard to beat!

Tess Starman

Wow! Sweet Magnolias not only makes the BEST sweets, they also have the nicest owners/employees! I had tried GF/Vegan Pumpkin Bars from a nearby coffee shop and thought they were the best I've ever had. I went in to buy some from Sweet Magnolias directly. So excited, I forgot to mention I came in for the GF/Vegan bars. I posted about them after I purchased and the shop messaged me and said "oh no! Those are the regular ones!" They asked me to come back and they already had a box ready for me. I had given away one bar already and taken a bite out of another one, but they didn't care and gave me a whole new box. I could not believe their generosity and was so thankful they caught my mistake prior to my allergic reactions kicking in! Sweet Magnolias gained a life long loyal customer because of it! Thank you, Sweet Magnolias!

Cxpy Rite

It was good but a little too sweet.I still enjoyed the donuts.

Michael Biggs

Fantastic cupcakes and bars. I recommend it to everyone who comes to our neighborhood.

Frank Dozon

We ordered a chocolate cake for a graduation and it was amazing. It wowed the entire group. Everyone at sweet magnolias was kind and helpful from order to pickup. Such a success for a special event -- and stopping by any work day for a scone or a cinnamon roll is also a win.

Madeline Vance

Had the s’mores bar, amazing!

Mike Dyer

Great food and very nice people. I wish I got there more often.

Darin Mellor

This place had a lot of hype from two friends. I went and it sure a heck lived up to it. Everything was soft and gooey when it needed to be, moist and fluffy when it calls for it, and most importantly mouthwateringly delectable. Our sample included an Oatmeal, possibly Scotchie, soft cookie sandwich with homemade icing between each soft and chewy cookies; an off the charts S’mores Bar with what appeared and tasted like heavenly melted marshmallows over fudge and gram cracker goodness in the topping and base; Raspberry Coffee Cake with crumbles of joy sit atop moist cake filled with fruit flavor; and last but not least a pretty large proper Scone with a good amount of fruit and tasty dough. Well done. We will be back for sure for your handmade treats.

Boyd Redinbaugh

If you haven’t tried this little bakery you’re missing out. Their scones and other treats are delicious. The folks that own and run it are the kind of folks you’d hope own this sweet (pun intended) bake shop. Kind and sincere business owners that are hard working and supportive of other local businesses too.
