Donna Sykes

My Mom & I visit here everyday. Love this place! So happy to have fresh donuts every morning. Very friendly place.


Vanessa Mueller

Nice staff, cute place. Ordered a chocolate, graduation cake, with buttercream frosting. Cake was decorated beautifully! Though the cake itself was very dry & lacked in chocolate flavor.

Zaire D.

They have a wide variety of desserts and most of them taste delicious.

reda arrouchi

I like upside cake

Lynn Bailey

Being from New York I was ecstatic to find this charming bakery with all the delicious goods I remembered as a child. The only bakery of its kind in the area that I’m aware of. However, upon my first visit and spending over $26, I found some of the items to be stale ( the black and white cookies). I called and informed the establishment and the teenager that answered said ok and that was it. Not letting this deter me, I went back and encountered more stale items. Extremely disappointed and I will not be back as the items are not inexpensive.

Douglas Danielson

Great Cuban panini.

Sherry Woolard-Russell

Not a lover of their panini, but their regular sandwiches are awesome & all their baked goods.

Brandy Leal

My coffee was great! The person helping me was not friendly. She put a bad vibe out for this place for me. It was my first time there.

Melanie Matthews

I ordered my tenth cake that I have ordered from here for a party this weekend. Absolutely amazed as always. Never have to give it a second thought when I order from here. Always perfect cakes. Everyone at the party was impressed!!!

Kenneth Berger

I love this place.

brad pettyjohn

Al Davis

Karen Nalette

Great food! Friendly staff. Great prices. Will definately be visiting again soon.

Aundra McFollins

I LOVE this bakery. I got a sheet cake with pictures scanned to the cake. It was the hit of my party. Not only was the cake beautiful, it taste really good. The staff is awesome!!!!! Now my family from MD want a cake every time they come. The price was very reasonable too. If you haven't been go check it out.

Russell Camper

It was a unique little find. Had to meet a architect in the area and he suggested it. I will definitely come back with my family. Only got a couple of cookies and a drink.

Gloria Guillen

I have been coming her for about 3 yrs and is a great place for coffee or lunch.

Quiana Warren

This place is definitely one of Clayton's gems. The cookies and cakes are amazing. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I have purchased a number of items from this bakery as gifts. The weekends are very busy, but i normally go in the mornings during the week and have no issues.

TONIA Mccormick

Totally love the fresh baked goods!

Belinda Nalette

Love it! We do not have bakeries in our area of Virginia. The grocery stores are our bakeries ☹️. I was so excited to be at a real bakery. I loved the sandwich I got. The iced sweet tea was delicious. Looking forward to going back and getting me a nice goody bag to take back home to Virginia.

Arlene Monroe

The pastrys are good, but the coffee is terrible. It really does taste burnt. I had them make my latte twice and it just tastes like they haven't cleaned the machines or they are using a very bitter coffee. The ambiance was cafe like, spacious and clean. The staff was pleasant, and very quick to help. Wish I could give this more stars but the coffee killed any chance.

Glenn Goldbaugh

This is a perfect little place for fresh baked cookies, cakes, soups, sandwiches, coffee and other treats and food items. Clayton Bakery & Cafe is a neat little place if you're looking for just a quick cup of coffee (and maybe a donut or two) or a hearty sandwich. Plus it's very easy to see from Highway 70 and reasonably priced. I will go back as often as I can.

Greg Toback

Excellent Italian pastries. They fill the cannolis when you order them and don't just leave them sitting around getting mushy. Their tiramisu could be creamier but it is tasty and the eclairs are awesome. The Italian bread is soft, unfortunately, because they put it in plastic when it comes out of the oven instead of paper but hopefully they fix it. No one wants soft Italian bread. If they fixed the bread issue this place would be 5 stars. The store itself is very nice with tables where you can sit and eat while drinking a coffee.

Katherine Etheridge

I love the bakery, but I do not find the team members to be overly friendly! The people who work there actually take away from what is a cool place. Wish they seemed friendlier; especially since the bakery is located in a small, southern town!

juanita sikorski

Huge, clean, beautiful bakery tucked away up 70. Plenty of selection, all that you want. Delcious, homemade baked goods!!!

Vicky Chou

Great place to grab a quick delicious bite. The white chocolate pumpkin scone is delicious. The atmosphere is so comfortable and welcoming. The staff is very friendly and laid back.

Mike H

Used Waze to get here, off by 0.4 miles, it's past all the Grifols and Corp driveways. Not their fault, need to correct Waze. ☹️ Like most bakeries today, none of the pastries that are supposed to be made with whipped cream, aren't.

Jay Miller

Everything is delicious. My favorite is the chocolate. Chocolate cookies and their brownies are so rich you need milk.

Steven Naylor

Always perfect pastries. Lemon Danish.

Roman Barker

I have been frequenting their establishment since they were at their previous location. They have done nothing but thrive and strive to do better for their customers and deliver delicious sandwiches, pastries, and coffee beverages. The owners are wonderful people, and I hope to see their business only continue to grow. They have managed to thrive so much without any sort of paid advertisement, relying only on word of mouth, which speaks volumes to their commitment to doing what they love. If all of Clayton knew about their hidden gem, the regulars would miss a short wait in line.

Denelle Tarmino

Clean & pleasant atmosphere! Extremely Good bakery! You definitely deserve a break & try something good!

Sarah Patrick

This is such a lovely bakery. Not only do they have a plethora of store-made tasty treats to (try to) choose from, their coffee is wonderful too! You know the coffee is good when a former barista approves so strongly. I visit this quaint local-owned bakery any time I'm in town. The staff are always friendly, helpful, and quick. Love them!

Jacob Clough

The pastries here are positively sublime. They have a tremendous selection of all kinds of pastries to choose from. The items that I had tasted fresh and delicious. They also have a good amount of seating. Their specialty drinks are just as varied and tasty as their pastries. Overall, it was a great experience with amazing food and beverages.

Amanda Crawford

First time here. Excellent pastries. I had a cinnamon bun that was fantastic.

Tim Powers

Get a Bigger Belt !! and throw out the bathroom scale !! Y'all have been given "Fair Warning ". Enter at y'alls [ Waist Size ] Risk. Enjoy !!!


EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BAKERY IS AMA-ZING X3 The workers are really really nice and great. The food is DEEELICIOUUS AND I CAN'T EVER GET ENOUGH, the bagel chips are MY NEW FAVORITE CHIPS. I recommend the Turkey and Bacon Panini, it's soooo flavorful and fresh x3

Thelma Smith

Good food and good prices they even have lunch items in addition to all of the Luscious baked goods

Valerie Brown

Wonderful! Great treats.

Stacy Butler

Wonderful little spot in Clayton! Love the space, sweets and bagels were very good and the breakfast quiche delicious.

Nita Bodette

Clayton Bakery is terrific, I come all the way from Raleigh to get their honey bun. Like biting into lovely, sugary air. May want to call ahead though as they do sell out. There is a young man behind the counter named Jake, that has the best personality. Helpful and Friendly...a great combo; they are lucky to have him!

Lou Sasso

Delicious as always, the staff is very warm and friendly. You cant go wrong here

Kyle Wilson

Fantastic coffee and lattes! I enjoy the variety of flavored lattes they offer here. Today I tried 'The Turtle' and loved it. The baked treats are scrumptious and there is plenty of seating. What is there not to love?

Meetal Shah

Great donuts. Service not so good - grumpy (but only to some customers )!

James Everette

I love this place! The sweet treats are out of this world!

Brad Rouse

Great bakery. Very friendly atmosphere and staff.

Angela Williams

Love having lunch here. Had a great chef's salad.

alisha mcbynum

So friendly and i loved the sweets

Sarah Van Alstine

Have tried almost everything from the case! Most everything is delicious. I like a denser cake and this place does it awesome! My sons looooove the cookie monsters! I haven't been overly impressed with any of the puff pastry/croissants, they have been on the drier side in my opinion. Other than that I love this place!

K Lang

So much to choose from! All of it was fantastic. Great customer service too.

smokey. geertz.

We are from out of town and this place was great

Barry Jackson

I love this place.


Overall good experience. I would recommend coming earlier in the day for warm baked goods.

Robin Nicole Boze

Great atmosphere, staff was excellent and friendly. The food was very good. Quiche was flavorful, I highly recommend lunch here.

Patricia Aman

Always such great food, desserts, coffee & teas!!

Scott Greenberg

Wonderful off the beaten path bakery in Clayton, huge selection of tasty pastries and good sandwiches too. Highly recommend this place!


Had the quiche and little pasta salad. Very good.


Cashier did not provide good service. Pumpkin Coffee was the worst ever! 2 stars instead of 1 because it was my first visit. Giving the place the benefit of the doubt.

Sharon Reece

❤️❤️❤️ Love the sandwiches and that I finally found a place in Clayton with freshly made donuts. Look forward to trying more on their menu.

Ruto Ruto

Great selection of pastries and the coffee was Good Too

Warren McDowell

Great young people working. Friendly, respectful, informative. Sensitive to the needs of the customer.

Mia Sotomayor

Been there a few times but I will be looking elsewhere for pastries. Purchased a box of assorted rugelach. They were very hard and not that tasty. Called to tell them, expected them to own up and tell me to return them for a refund, not what happened. I was told that the baker needed to call me back to explain why it was inedible. Think I’ll pass on them from now on. Also it would be a good idea for them to date their products as to advise customers when items were baked.

Leslie Smith

Nice pastries and sandwiches. I have always been pleased with the food and service.

MizzKodak Snape

The bagel arent really bagels, more like rolls but they are very tasty.

Justin Goldbaugh

Went for lunch quick service. Food made to order and a very good value.

Coco Bryant

Great Sweets and helpful employees!

Courtney Lewis

No better place in clayton for delicious backed goods, try the red velvet cookies!


Amazing fresh baked goods, and awesome sandwiches.

Ben Quintero

Good food, casual setting. The Apple Gobbler is my favorite sandwich.

Liz Bernhard


LaVern Carter

Usually a great place but today was an off day. Latte was Luke warm, at best. Suggested that I heat it up in the microwave but I exchanged for a regular coffee from the carafe which was also luke warm. Gave up and drank my warm, not hot, coffee.

Tiffany Brambo

Cheesecake is dry and both the cheesecake and the german chocolate cake taste like coffee. Which would be fine if it was supposed to be coffee flavor. But even the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies were coffee flavored. Great for coffee lovers though.

Pat Crosbie

Friendly staff, lots of good pastries and bread and an open airy feel.

Erin Rhue

Their cakes are good. My "go to" place when I need a cake for my kids' birthday parties. They made my wedding cake too.

Chuck West

I used to love to go to Clayton Bakery for lunch or a snack. The food is still good but the service is in a downhill spiral. Today both orders were wrong. The lady taking our order cut me off while ordering to the point where I gave up. Won't be going out of my way to have lunch there.

Yeedah Krasowski

This is an awesome place for lunch. My first time here I ordered the apple gobbler. . So yummy, the chicken pesto is also really good, and the chicken salad on a croissant is this only place I'll get a chicken salad other than when I make it myself.

Christina D.E. Land

LOVE LOVE LOVE This place! I take my 3 kids here at least once a week usually, if not more :) The double chocolate mocha scones and mocha cappuccino scones are the best! I have always had great customer service there ;)

Wan Dee Xiong

Ordered two paninis for lunch, Apple Gobbler and Tuna Melt. They were decent. The Apple Gobbler did have more meat on one side of the sandwich than the other. The bagel crisps(chips?) and cookie included in the meal was great. I think the …

Glen Williams

Great Sweet Treats, and excellent Lunch as well. I fell for the chocolate chip cookies and Crescents, but when I went later in the day once discovered another hidden gem in the same location. An excellent Lunch Spot. That obviously by the size of the crowd the only one that didn’t know about this Gem was me. Great value all around. Don’t miss out; stop in today.

Beth Williams

Didn't even know this place was here! Absolutely the best eclair I've ever had! Very patient staff, I was overwhelmed by the selection of mouthwatering pastries and aromas of freshly brewed coffees on hand! Very inviting family friendlyrics environment Come check them out. Something for everyone. I guarantee it. Worth the drive.

Amy Miller

Pleasantly surprised with the selection and service. Fresh pastries and better than average coffee at half the price of Starbucks. What more can a girl ask for? We definitely will be returning soon.

Vicki Hole

The Lemon Blueberry and Mixed Berry Scones are wonderful, especially if they are warmed in the microwave!

Kate Coates

A great local hot spot. Awesome customer service and amazing treats. They always remember my order. It is a weekly stop for me. My coworkers love when I bring donuts from Clayton Bakery!

Erick Hernandez

Love love the different variety of coffees they offer plus the delicious treats!

Kelly De Jesus

Love this bakery! They made a beautiful and delicious 2 tier cake for my daughters first birthday. Everything we try from here is delicious.


Great food and pastries. Staff could use a class on how to be more welcoming or cheerful. Everytime I go in it seems no one wants to be there working.

Ashley Snyder

Great coffee, delicious donuts/pastries, affordable prices, and a nice atmosphere. My favorite thing to get is a chocolate filled croissant and a latte. Yum!

Kerri M.

My favorite place to eat in Clayton! They have an awesome lunch menu and an even more amazing selection of baked goods. The staff has always been super friendly and they keep it clean. I’ve never had a bad experience.

The Geek

Local, Southern Clayton, Bakery that makes all types of breads, pasterys, cookies, cakes etc. About 80 percent of the shop is the actual bakery, and the whole facility is open, so you get to see them baking behind the counter while you eat what ever delectable treat you have purchased. The store is also a cafe and you can order what ever coffee concoction you usually imbibe. Your really missing out if you haven't stopped bye and tryed this bakery out.

Richard Collazo

Great Place to have lunch or just a coffee with a pastry! I always have the "Cubano" sandwich which is great, would suggest everyone to try. Definitely a great bakery!

Maria Montenotte

Love their coffee! I’m not too happy with their bake goods, but that’s just me. Husband and kids are happy. Nice staff and great service

Michele Smith

Always a great place for lunch, paninis are the best

Deldrick Surles

Had several things made here everything was perfect. Pies, cakes, and everything else is going to be good here!

Natasha Johnson-Ivy

Good lattes and baked good.

Char Cassar

This place is dangerous. I always say I will only get a couple of cookies and then leave with an entire box of deliciousness. The pastries, cookies, brownies and cake are the best anywhere in the area. The birthday cake slices are a favorite and the ginger cookies also bring me back far too often. I've tried about everything they have and never been disappointed. Their lunch menu is also great. I've ordered several occassion cakes from here too and they have always been fresh, moist and wonderful.


Pastries are fresh and the drinks fresh and everything tasty. However, to hot in building to sit and stay, and sandwiches are only made to 3 pm, not mentioned on website. Came for sandwiches, others wise 5 stars.

Joy Crow

Everything was very good, except the bagel chips.

Stacey Rathgeb

5 customers in there and 1 girl working, then after i ask if anyone else js working she gets the other girl and sje takes my order for coffee then afyer making says, there. In South you have manners, the girl was rude.

Phil Charlotte Leighton

I really enjoy coming to the Clayton Bakery. Friendly service and kind staff. Love the veggie bagels, coffee and all the goodies they have to offer!

Debbie Hilliard

It would be nice if they offered help to people that come in for the first time. Offering to warm baked goods and friendly customer service would be nice. They are unhelpful and cold.

Marius R B

Lots of choices if you have sweet tooth. One of the best coffee I had.A great place to have a cup of coffee and some pastries. Fresh bagels would be a plus..maybe in future

Alene Garrett

Only one visit to early to give rating

Laura Oakley

At least Clayton has a bakery now, but I think a little competition would really help this place. Overall their products are average and not any better than what you can get from a grocery store bakery.


The place is magnificent! They have a little bit of anything and everything. Everyone go there please so they'll be there the next time I want to go!

Sheri Franklin

Best doughnuts I've found in Clayton. The customer service is some of the best I've ever had. Staff was knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. We got donuts, turn overs, and other pastries, no cakes or coffee, and it was all delicious. Some better than others. Honestly, the great customer service is the biggest reason we keep going back. The lunch menu looks amazing!

Jeff Snyder

Great backed goods with lots to choose from.. Get all our cakes there .

Neal Mitchell

Surprisingly large place with a wide variety of sweets. They also have good ☕
