REVIEWS OF Baker's Sweets IN South Carolina

Tara Robbins

Was surprised at the amount of customers waiting in line. Seemed like the place to be. I bought a few different baked goods. Slice of cake, scone, macaroons. Everything was good but nothing really stood out or blew me away.

hyatt Saunders

Omg the food is absolutely to die for. The service is the definition of southern hospitality. Everytime I visit Sumter I have 2 come by n get some great food.

Adrion Dunham

I’m not from Sumter, but I’ve been coming here since I was aiuto 12 years old (2002). Every time I come to visit family, I make a mandatory trip here to get some red velvet cookies and the strawberry shortcake. I dabble in some other sweets as well, but the red velvet cookies and strawberry shortcakes are a MUST.

Everything about this place was so cute! Breakfast sandwiches are amazing! Coffee was delicious. Most def have to get some of their bakery treats cause they taste so yummy!! Would visit again :) 10/10 staff was extremely friendly!

Dan Brown

Dangerous place. All kinds of goodies.

Giovanni Faddoul

Very nice bistro. Has a selections of cakes, cheesecakes and muffins. Good coffee, a bit more expensive than it should be though. Also is a restaurant and has many options, salads, sandwiches and entrées. Food is really good and prices are very reasonable with large portions. Tios: try the spunky monkey coffee and food wise, try fried trio for appetizers.


Good food. Yummy desserts if only they had something chocolate with walnuts or pecans.

Rex Huggins

Bought my son's birthday cake there, a display the lady said it was made that morning. Embarrassed as the cake was hard and icing stale! Too high of prices when quality of food is down.

Mandy Buchanan

Fantastic food and great services.

Deborah Burrell

Great coffee and they also serve gluten free brownies

Lil Rambo803

Love their iced coffee... 100x better than Starbucks

Kelly Galloway

Everything is delicious! From the coffee to the cakes to the sticky buns. And the staff is always very friendly.

Tylethea Brittingham

One of my favorite places I always do a take out.

Rachael Beargeon

This place has amazing desserts. The sweet potato fries are absolutely Devine. This place is always super clean and the coffee is fresh. This is a great spot for meeting people. I would definitely recommend this place.

Katerine King

Everything looks delicious and great service

Benjamin Brown

What a great local bakery! It's hard to resist all their wonderful baked goods, like the orange cranberry muffins, even though I usually go to get coffee. Their coffee selection is great, not only of drinks they can make you but all their beans of various roasts to pick from. They'll even grind it for you! My favorite, by far, is their Cinnadoodle, it has a fantastic and unique flavor January edit: I went in and tried their awesome kitchen menu! They've got a ton of delicious breakfast items, but will also fix you up a hamburger and fries too if you want that in the morning. I got a bowl of cheese grits topped with bacon and eggs, and it was a wholesome filling meal.

Network God

Everything is good. Awesome staffing.

Russell James

Great service

Becky Hurst

Order was not ready when I went to pick it up. Service was slow and the serving of fries with the sandwich was pitiful.

Diane maenz

Yummy. Best food and dessert.

Crystal M

So I've been a few times. I will admit the food is always very good. The bakery is good. The coffee shop hot drinks are not very good but the frozen stuff is fantastic. I would love to love this place but twice we went for breakfast and received terrible service. They also don't tell you that they open early but their serving staff isn't there until about an hr after opening. So we stopped in and we're told we wouldn't be served for an hour.

Happy Hinds

Excellent service! Great. Frozen vanilla Bean soy!! I am visiting from Virginia and was highly impressed! Keep up the good work!!

Kelli Myers

Blueberry muffin was good, just a little dry. All of our other desserts were delicious as always! The younger folks at the counter could use a little improvement. We'll be back soon!

Art with Vikki C.

Didn't even place an order . It seems always have a long line in the morning and only 1 or 2 people to wait on you .


One of my favorite bakeries here in Sumter S.C. I visit this place at least once a week. All of their deserts are awesome! They also offer a good selection of coffee and smoothie drink items as well. If you are in the area I definitely recommend

Emily Ramirez

There food was great

James Crawford

Good food and good service. Love the muffins.

Glyn Oliver

Good variety and pleasant service. Grandma chocolate layer cake is my favorite. Nice sized portions.

Jessica Harris-Gibbs

Usually I am such a fan of Bakers Sweets, but lately I have been a little dissatisfied. I don't know if management has changed or what, but everytime I go in there now they are out of every thing. I like their peanut butter cake, and my husband likes their Red Velvet and Carrot Cake. Sometimes we buy the whole cake and sometimes we buy by the slice. I was told today to come earlier, but unfortunately works stops me from being able to stop by until around 5-6pm, but they don't close until 8 so I don't see why that should be an issue. This has been my 5th visit in the last month with the same issue, even the ladie behind me wanted Red Velvet. Maybe I will have to start special ordering or something!

Logan McDonald

Love it!! Great food. Great staff

CS Vogt

Popular spot in Sumter - just popped in for a cup of hot tea on a cold, rainy Monday. Took all my will power to resist the delectable in the showcase. I'll be back!

Beverly davis

Nice setting

Justin Turner

My Sweetheart and I stopped here for lunch after a recommendation. We had a great time. I can’t remember the exact name of the burger but it was a blue cheese bbq burger. WOW! Probably the best I’ve ever had. We also had the frozen Spunky Monkey. Honestly I’m moving to Florida from Charleston this weekend but if I wasn’t I would travel from Charleston to Sumter just for this! Thank you Miranda for taking care of us. Everything was great!

Amy M

I now live in WV, but whenever I'm back in town, I make it a point to treat myself to their coffee. I usually get the spunky monkey and it is really good! I didn't think I'd like the banana flavor, but I love it because it isn't overwhelming. Can't seem to find anything with this exact flavor where I live now. I highly recommend going just for their coffee. I can't speak for the food because I haven't had any. The staff are very friendly and prices are reasonable. I'll be going back again when I'm in town :)

Patrik Schneider

Definitely a place to consider. Desserts are something between sweet and very sweet. But good. My wife loved the fresh and tasty omelet with fresh vegetables. Seemed to be one of the best she had so far. Only point I do not support is the freezing AC running. Stop by, check and enjoy!

Edward Teck

The best sweet treats in sumter, dont forget to order your pies early for Thanksgiving!

gail Nealy

A bit pricey, but fresh and flavorful food as well as desserts

Cheryl Mack

Food is delicious along with the baked goods!!!

Joan Richardson

One of my favorite places to meet my friends for coffee/breakfast. They have the best bakery items, delicious gourmet coffee, and yummy breakfast dishes. They have a southern menu and everything is made fresh. Relaxed casual atmosphere and friendly helpful staff. They also do catering and make cakes for your special events. My favorite treats are their muffins!!!

Chevy Man

The turkey bacon club was awesome.

M McMillian

Love the strawberry shortcake!

kimberly hall

Cozy atmosphere. Friendly staff. Short wait time even though it was a bit crowded. Please try the spicy bacon flat bread. Gave 4 stars because the serving of fries was very small. I tried the coconut cake it was okay however it wasn't too sweet which I liked. It felt like it weighed a ton, it's a more dense cake than light.

Adam Sederlund

Delicious Bakery and coffee shop. Plenty of sweet treats to choose from including many different cakes. They also have a dinning area if you like to eat in. Love the huge danishes and muffins.

Katrina Stikeleather

We ordered a truffle cake for my sister in laws birthday. It was delicious. She used to make cakes for people so she is very picky about cakes and she loved this cake. It was very moist and smooth. The chocolate melted in your mouth. It is my favorite cake that they make now.

Jo Henderson

Food tastes amazing. Huge variety of sweets. Great customer service

Shanekia D

Great service and amazing desserts.

Numie Louie

You get what you pay for and it's money well spent when dining at Baker's Sweets. Everything I've ordered from coffee, pastries, lunch- outstanding!!

Danielle Hutson

This place was nice at one time. Sadly, the service is now awful, the wait time for food and beverage that simply isn't worth the trouble or money. Sorry to see this place turn out so awfully.

Cat Lady

Best coffee and desserts.

Franchetta Carr

The cupcakes melt in your mouth.

Rude Boi

The grits and shrimp is definitely a winner! I've never had these type of grits before, But I tried them and Boom I'm addicted!

Cesar Romero

Great food, awesome customer service

Karen Hitchcock

Oh, such decadence! Most of my visits were before I was diagnosed with diabetes. They have cakes, cookies, luncheon dishes, excellent barristas, & a fantastic ambience. My mother-in-law was a gifted Baker. Awesome cakes & cookies. But Baker's Sweets beats her best 9 ways to Sunday!!! We just don't tell her. Now, I can just look at all the goodies, & remember how awesome everything is. Then I go get a double tall latte with 3 pumps of Sugar Free vanilla, and those are SO good, my sweet tooth is happy, & I leave smiling. The awesome staff wave goodbye, until the next time.

Irene McCants

Enjoyed a pleasant lunch there today with friends. I ordered the shrimp and grits and it was delicious. Our waitress was friendly and kept our beverage glasses full. We also had the lemon tart for dessert- it was delicious. Such a hard decision to select just one dessert when everything looked and smelled so delicious. Definitely going to return there soon!

laticia dix

The sweets are so good!!

Blsndia Johnson

Hope to be going there in the next two weeks

Tanya Dorak

Great atmosphere, delicious food, and very friendly staff. Really enjoyed it and will totally be going back.

Sade Redd

The service was excellent; Eric was so nice and went way out of his way; as I had to place an order by phone for my 102 year old mother for Valentine's day. He could not have been more accommodating; as we are sending her chocolate covered with decorative red; strawberries. I will post a picture soon! Sumter is very fortunate to have such a nice bakery; especially the staff. I have been there for treats and coffee my self and their treatment is fabulously wonderful.

Lexus Carr

Delicious treats, just wish they sell cheesecakes

Rachel Spiegel

Quick and friendly service.

Luther Cross

We love this place. Great food and service (can't go wrong with the shrimp and grits or pecan crusted chicken salad). The only bad part is that my wife goes there with her friends, and I miss out sometimes.

Jennifer Shiggs

That nutty praline cake is the best cake I have ever had in my life... definitely a jewel in this town and one of Sumter's best places!!!

Helen Romero

The have the BEST coffee & baked goods!

Amanda Smith

Baker's Sweets is a charming local bakery that produces an amazing assortment of cakes, pastries, and other deserts. They take mass orders or you could just grab a quick slice from the glass. They also serve coffee and teas. In addition, they have a restaurant area that serves more than just deserts, but I haven't explored the menu enough to give y'all a proper opinion on it yet. Dinged this place one star only for how busy it gets and how slow the wait time can tend to be. The store isn't large which leads to a cramped atmosphere occasionally. But don't let that stop you from giving these amazing deserts a chance, just visit in the slow hours!

Ashley Anderson

I've been going here a lot over the past few years and something recently has changed to where this gem of a restaurant is slipping away to mediocrity. The pastries I have purchased recently are dry. The selection has shrunk compared to a few years ago. I normally get a "Cinnabon muffin" and red velvet cake along with a spunky monkey. Even the ingredients to make the specialty coffee are not available sometimes. The food is okay, although the level of salt and seasoning varies every time. The wait staff are hard working and friendly.

Cathy Lee

Great place to eat and the cake is to die for, I just went there for birthday dinner had a slice of coconut cake OMG it was fantastic!!

Jennifer Dukette

Good food but the last 2 times it took 10-15 minutes from paying to get a coffee

Katelyn Tindell

Food is great, portions are generous. Coffee is delicious. If you want the good pastries, come early because they do sell out.

Debbie Weatherly

I just love this place reminds me of New York

Angela Eaves

Amazing. My favorite place to eat in Sumter. The food is delicious, the people are friendly.

Karen Okodugha

This is one of my most fave spots to visit when getting something for a special occasion or just a treat for myself. The staff are helpful, polite and friendly. The variety of baked goods can be overwhelming on your first visit but once you try them you will be hooked. In addition to the regular baked muffins, cookies, pastries, cakes,and pies, the baker's develop several new flavor combinations to try each time you go in to visit. Their coffee menu is creative and tasty. The shop also sells house- made casseroles, squash pie, sweet potato casserole, and more. If that were not enough, the bistro stays busy serving delicious salads, sandwiches, and soups (and desserts, of course). Overall, one will have a very nice experience whether dining in or take out.

Valeria Soto

Used to be delicious but the menu changed and so did the food... it seems nore bland. Decent spot around here but no longer can say that its amazing

Timothy Murphy

Always great baked goods and coffee!

Joe Sneed

Great place for breakfast and extremely good cakes and pastries

Bett Horn

Quaint atmosphere. Delectable food

Lita Richburg

Awesome place to get sweet and lunch

Sheri Wharton


Joseph Jones

They first stopped serving the beignets and now the macaroons; my two favourite things from Baker's Sweets... All gone. This is a very sad day.


Damn good food! Prices are not ridiculously high and the food is incredible! The people care if uou enjoy your time there.

maria gaston

Always yummy

luke stratton

Typically there's great service. However, this visit provided us with a new employee who clearly didn't understand English very well. After repeating ourselves on 2 separate occasions with this lady, she couldn't grasp simple concepts. Superior food normally...and excellent quality!

Jason Laney

Did an awesome job on my wedding cake can't say

Loretta Bernhardt

Love the burgers and fries here. Ask for the 1089 sauce if you like a little kick. The Palmetto cheese dip is my favorite thing ever, and the deserts are awesome. It's a great lunch spot with the girls. I don't think I've tried anything that I didn't like (Well maybe the red velvet cookie that was dry). You won't be disappointed!

Jess Palantino

It's where you go if you want to get super fat. Great customer service, great red herrings. You just eat it all til you can't no more, ya'll. It's not rocket science.

Thomas B

We come here a lot and the sweet potato fried are great! The pastries are also great!

Josha M. Crabtree

Hands down one of the best breakfasts I've ever had.

Priscilla Palafox

Best iced coffee in Sumter. Very cute atmosphere with delicious looking baked goods.

Amanda Francis

I love their cakes I got one for my birthday and I wish I had more.

Deidre Martin

Everything I have tasted here had been really good. If I'm on that side of town, I definitely stop by for a muffin or a slice of cake. Super reasonable prices too!!

Brian Dunn

Ever since moving to Sumta, I’ve been hearing about Baker’s Sweets. I’m not sure what all the hype is as this place is mediocre and WAY overpriced. I got my kids a cinnamon bun and myself a large coffee to go for the low price of $8 and some change. I wish I would have just got the 10 pack of Little Debbie's Cinnamon buns for $1.99 — guarantee they taste better too.

Peter and JaNae Burger

A bakery and bistro in one. The muffins are massive and delicious but my favorite is the mint chocolate brownie: a thick, moist brownie piled high with minty chocolate frosting. Perfection!!

Ann White

Service was very poor and the muffin was very small and minus the nuts that are usually on a banana NUT.

Frank Watts

Bistro with awesome bakery, don't drive by...stop in.

Sherra Bowling

Enjoyed it very much.


Food is excellent.......BUT they are extremely, consistently understaffed in the watressing. Everytime i've visited with the wife we usually have a debate on eating their for breakfast or going somewhere else. So ill simply say if you intend to pick up some coffee or sweets, go for it. But a quick breakfast in the restaurant area.....not gonna happen. Expect long waits between ordering, being served and especially getting your check. Hire more staff!

scott marosok

Best brownie and pecan pie I have ever tasted

Abdalis Toro

Food and desserts are amazing! The portions can be a little small, depending on what you order, but the taste is amazing. Has a homy but classy atmosphere that makes you feel like you are having lunch with style.

Charles R

I have been coming for dine in and also getting baked goods from this location for 10 years now and while sometimes something is off, generally the baked items are so good it doesn’t matter what is off. The muffins could stand to be cooked in a different manner, but they still taste great. The cakes are my favorite and I have never had a bad piece from here. Most of my dine in experiences have been perfect too. My only recommendations are these; clean the vents and fans everywhere including the bathrooms (gross) and get some bike racks and outdoor seating for the warmer weather months to promote walking and bike riding. I highly recommend this one and in Lake City!

margaret hardy

Delicious food cakes and coffee. Must try the nutty nurse and caramel cake.

Carla Sessions

Nice coffee shop to hang out and have some joe.

Karen MacEachern

I have been to this awesome restaurant numerous times. I live in Lexington but I travel to Sumter to see my daughter. We both love the wonderful menu items and the deserts of course. The service is always good and the meals are excellent. I wish we could have a Baker's Sweets location in Columbia or Lexington.

Kimberly Reyes

Delicious deserts, however they lack of variety and they have cut smaller the portions.

Teresa Smith

Very good ,everything,just not enough sweet selection any more

Hyacinth Kinley

Oh where do I start? Absolutely love the food and sweets. Thank you for the professional friendly service.

Lanessa Williams

I Love This Place! When I come home, i try to stop by and shop. They are locally owned. I love giving back to my community. The 6 layer cake, Italian cream cake are absolutely Fabulous! Keep the cinnamon rolls and monkey bread with nuts. Keep Everything! Love you Baker Sweets!

Layla Justice-Mastrovito

Place went downhill fast. Never eating there again.

Elizabeth Lillig

We decided to take a Saturday drive from Florence to Sumter and are so happy that we found this gem!! My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our coffee drinks(what a great assortment of coffee)! We also had cheesecake and!! Five stars is not a high enough rating. We want to come again for breakfast, which looks phenomenal. I also must add that the entire staff was friendly and professional.♥️♥️♥️


I have eaten a meal here once and it was delicious, though a bit pricey. The coffee and baked goods are excellent. High recommendation.

Darrien Smith

Great cakes

Eboney Williams

Great place to eat

Tracie Lagunas

The pecan chicken salad was delicious. My husband had the Italian sandwich, he said it was really good. Cant wait to go back and try that red velvet!!

Danielle Rozmus

We stopped in while on vacation. Lunch for two adults and 3 kids, plus two desserts, was about $42. The Mac and cheese was creamy and gooey (in a good way), the turkey and avocado sandwiches were substantial without being overstuffed, and the soups were fantastic - I had kale-sausage with potato dumplings and my husband had loaded baked potato and hey were equally good. I would highly recommend this for a relaxing lunch if you’re in Sumter, SC!

Karla Sturgeon

Great coffee and baked goods

Thomas McKenzie

Always nice!

La-Tecia Harrison

Always a delicious treat. I no longer live in Sumter, but everytime I'm there, I make it a must to stop before I leave.....

Noah Harchelroad

Really the only place I will consistently go to grab a bite to eat in Sumter!

Michael Barfield

Nice and relaxing environment. Very good cappuccinos and desserts. The personnel is very friendly

Latasha Murray

Amazing shrimp and grits, fresh homemade pimento cheese and of course, sweets!

Mark Skeen

There is a reason locals LOVE this place. So much more than all of the delicious baked goods and coffee, the menu offers a variety of breakfast and lunch options that are top-notch. The delicious food, paired with excellent service, is always a pleasure.

Alex Johnson

Awesome desserts and the shrimp and grits is the bomb.

Leondria Nelson

First time visiting this establishment and I feel in love with it. Great variety of desserts

Sita Riddle

We were visiting relatives in Sumter, and they brought us here to pick out some sweet treats. We filled a box with delicious goodies that delighted the whole family. My favorites that I sampled were the Strawberry cake, which had a layer of strawberry jam and the oreo brownie. Everything was beautifully made. Looking forward to my next trip here and trying out their savory menu for lunch.

Charles J. Brooks

Sweet place to buy sweets...

Ria Frances

Its a great place if you have a sweet tooth.

Destany Hodgkins

A great place to go and study. The staff is great and the food is amazing.

Robert Ruvalcaba

Best pastries in Sumter, hands down. This place is amazing. The sights and especially the smells. Service is great!


Eat the macaroons! My wife says. It’s a cute little local joint. Nice interior, good coffee, polite staff. This place is run by people who are good at their job.

Kim Borrelli

Better than ever! Chilled environment and delicious!

diana canty

Very disappointed! We came for breakfast. Our waitress didn't take our order for almost 15 minutes. Our breakfast took 25 minutes to come out. 4 out of 6 breakfasts were cold. Then I had to request our bill in order to pay. Usually this restaurant is good, today was very disappointing! ☹️

Niyonnah Thompson

Food was delicious as always, service was ok.

Demetric Poole

Delicious! I've probably gained 100 pounds but I don't care, because I love this restaurant! The best sweets!!! A must go!!!

Jo BoNe

Absolutely top grade baked goods. Cakes, pies, pastries, and every one of them was above my expectations. A must if you're local as well as worth making time if your visiting the area.

Shavon Turner

Moved here from Louisiana and found Baker's Sweets i love all their desserts will be ordering my son bday cake from them

Cathy Outlaw

Cake was amazing I ordered a German chocolate cake for a birthday it came out great. I ordered an iced mocha coffee with almond milk while I was there for $8.40 I thought It would be a little better. Coffee tasted burnt and it really just tasted like pure chocolate syrup. I took a menu with me I have heard great things about their food, so I will give some of the salads a try.

Edward Izard

My wife had the tomato pie, while I had the philly cheese cake omelet. Both were fantastic! Then we got 2 cinnamon buns to go for breakfast the next day. Wow! We will be back soon.

Terry Greene

Lemon cake was delicious

Kathryn Quinlivan

An amazing place to stop by for a sweet treat, caffeinated drink, or a sit down breakfast! I have stopped here multiple times and tried an array of they baked goods and have yet to find something less than mouth watering. I enjoy their breakfast menu and my friend loves their burgers. The staff is always nice and willing to answer questions about their treats. I've been during busy and slow moments and the service is always at a good pace. It's cozy and the hours are great for stopping by before work or an evening coffee date.

Story. Creations

Amazing treats! Delicious

Connor Johnston

The ham cheese croissant sandwiches are awesome!

Doug Taylor

Love this place healthy eatn


Great breakfast place! It was highly recommended by my sister and her family, and I was glad for the recommendation. I had bagels and lox and my daughter had a breakfast sandwich. We both enjoyed our choices. Great service and nice atmosphere. I'll definitely be back when I'm in the area again!

Michael Affronte

Nice but pricey

Sarah Jones

Didn't like the cupcake I bought, they gave me another in its place, that's good service!

j stratton lobdell

Good food.

Grace Covington
