I love the fact that we have a bakery in this city! I even love it more when they expand their horizons on flavors for donuts, cupcakes or even cakes. The prices are pretty reasonable and the service is warm and friendly!
I love this place! I was a little disappointed this morning when there were no donut sandwiches available and the guy working the counter made me one fresh! The donuts are delicious! I purchased a cupcake today and I have no doubts that it will be amazing as well. I WILL be back and I tell everyone about them!
I loved the flourless chocolate cupcake! It was absolutely decadent! My husband had the sticky bun. I thought it was to dry on the outside for my taste. However, as would be expected, it was most on the inside. I liked that there were vegan options, but I disliked that they were all soy based. I would suggest a almond milk and or coconut milk base option as well for those who don't eat soy products. The staff was quite friendly. The environment was a little cold. Nothing of warmth to soak up the cold outside. Concrete flooring and brick walls. Perfect for summer months. I would recommend this place. There is room for growth, but the bite that I had was delicious.
They made a cake for my sister's birthday... they met my expectations and more... I will most definitely get they to make a cake for me again. My whole experience was very pleasant. Very nice people from the beginning to the end. Holly was very nice and great customer service. Keep up the good work ya'll!
I love Buttermilk! They have a lot of tasty treats to choose from (donuts, cakes, pies, cinnamon rolls, and much, much more) The people who work here are super friendly and patient while you pick something and change your mind and do that fifty gazillion times over. The treats (Especially the donuts and the cinnamon rolls) are amazing and you can tell they put a lot of care into their food. My only complaint is that I wish they had more options, so, that I can have an even harder time deciding on what I want. The little shop is decorated real cute. It's definitely not a sit down with laptop and enjoy a donut type of bakery as they only have, what? Two tables, I think. And the inside is pretty small, so, everyone will know what you're working on. So, you come here, you take twenty minutes to pick out a donut, and then you leave. Overall, the owners have done an AMAZING job with Buttermilk.
The donuts and cakes are delicious! FYI: If you want to place a custom order you should call the store. I sent them an email a week ago about placing a custom order and I still haven't heard from anyone.
Awesomeness and great customer service!!!
Super adorable and the cakes are amazing. This is definitely my go to for special occasions in the Petersburg area
Sweet treats and upbeat service!
Great local bakery, donuts are to die for. Had a Boston cream which the filling is added at time of order so is not soggy. The plain glazed might be best I ever had. So glad I went here, way better than large chain, premade stuff.
Awesome staff and delicious treats!!!
Love this place! Food is excellent and service.
Their glazed and cinnamon sugar donuts are great! I do feel like their chocolate iced donuts are a bit of a miss though.
Great experience to come back too.
They have the best donuts and pastries on my yes!!!
Best bakery..Good donuts
Everything that I have ordered from Buttermilk has been delicious. My favorite doughnut is probably the lemon blueberry. I was impressed when they piped in the creme filling for the Boston Creme doughnuts as they were ordered. My only complaint is you have to be there early before items are sold out.
Doughnuts,cupcakes,cookies, it's all good come down and try it out its tastes really good!!!!
It is so cute inside of the shop. Everyone I've dealt with has been very nice and helpful. The puns on their Instagram page under the pics are hilarious. Last, but certainly not least, all of their desserts are AMAZING. Everything is so fresh and delicious.
These were so good!
I went to this shop because I was curious on how their cupcakes tasted. It's literally around the corner of this awesome BBQ place on the main road. When I grab a few cupcakes to bring home, especially their cheesecake one since my husband loves cheesecake, ALL of the cupcakes were gone by tomorrow morning. When I went and got more they were gone mid day with tears in my husband's eyes while he was eating the last cheesecake cupcake. They even make cakes to order as long as they get good enough notice. With this notice it is to make sure it is done right. The love they have for baking shows in their sweets. Definitely recommend this place for dessert after the BBQ place or just in general ♡
I had a long piece of hair in my icing!
I absolutely love this amazing local dessert shop. Their donuts are my absolute favorite in town. It's no wonder why Buttermilk was my first thought when thinking of who would do my wedding desserts. The process was easy and no stress. Laura is awesome to work with and a sweet person all around. I went with a small 2 tiered cutting cake (AMAZING - all our guests ate our cake before we could grab a second piece, haha) and 130 donuts. This is the shop for all your sweet treat needs for all occasions. Thanks Laura!
The donuts are great but cost more than Krispy Kreme they don't discount the dozen or more .
Donut sandwich with fresh berries...yum! Bonus points for the treats for our pup too.
Great cupcakes and great service!
The place was easy to find and very cute on the inside. The selection of donuts was a little small but it works. The only part I didn't like was the actual donuts. It felt like I was eating a marshmellow. Every donut that we bought was really chewy. My husband thought the same thing. He also got the cheesecake with cherries on top and said it was good but the oreo on the bottom was soggy. I had the flower less chocolate cupcake and that was too much for me. I'm going to have to eat that in portions.
This place is just like home. If your looking for southern style yeast donuts look no further. From weird bacon donuts to your typical glazed this place has it all.
The best apple fritter you’ll ever eat! And all the other choices are outstanding!
Everything we've had has been very good.
Always has amazing and mouth watering pastries a true gem in Old Towne Petersburg
Delicious.Local and friendly staff.
Called and placed an order for 2 cakes a few weeks apart. The first I started off by saying I know this is short notice but... and the girl did not say they were booked up and couldn’t do that one. Then I get a call back saying they couldn’t do the one. The person was very unprofessional. I have always loved the work they have done but I will not got back nor will I recommend them to anyone.
Hidden gem tucked back in Old Town Petersburg. Always fresh, always delicious, and they even have homemade dog treats for your four legged friends! Come early though, once the fresh is gone for the day, it is gone for the day!
This place has a cute, sweet, and rustic appeal. The items they sell are delicious. The chocolate chip scone was flaky/soft on the inside, and slightly crisp on the outside. The Hummingbird Cake was an experience in itself. This 3-layer cake is moist with smooth cream cheese frosting. There's crunchy nuts and shredded coconut with hints of other flavors that fully complement each other in the mouth. Great experience!
Fantastic doughnuts. Fun find on our way home from DC.
Great place for cupcakes. I would recommend this place.
Im visiting from out of town and tried the apple fritter. It was the best fritter I've ever had in my life, No exaggeration. Then I tried one of their standard raised ring donuts. In my opinion this shop EXACTLY makes what a donut should taste like. Best donut shop I've ever been to. Makes me wish I lived down the road.
You will never find a better bakery
The Café Mocha donuts are divine. (Coffee flavored icing with chocolate fudge drizzle) All flavors are great.
Have had nothing but great experiences coming to this shop from Richmond. Makes for a great stop on our Petersburg day trips!
Tasty and sweettooth.
Great place to satisfy your sweet tooth
Great cakes, donuts, pastries all made on site!!
Warning.... It's best you do not step foot into this place... Unless you are willing to come back again and again. Here's the deal.. I am VERY critical, and VERY hard to please... I have nothing bad to say. The apple fritters have.... Wait for it.... APPLES in them.. big pieces of soft warm cooked apples... Lucky for me I am leaving the state in 7 weeks, or I would gain back the 70 pounds I have lost...
Best donuts ever. Very clean inside.
This place is AWESOME!!! they make vegan pastries and vegan cake. I went there quite a few times while I was in school in the area. I even bought enough for everyone in class so they can have a vegan donut. Keep it the good work Buttermilk Bake Shop and hope you can bring vegan options more often than just 2 days a week.
We love this bakery. Great cakes, cupcakes and donuts.
Good food price a little high
Custard filled Chocolate donut and Iced Honey Bun were delicious.
Smells Good Looks Good Mmmmmmmm izzzz Good...
Have an amazing hummingbird cake
My favorite spot to grab something sweet! We love buttermilk!!
Amazing place great food and wonderful customer service.
I love this bakery in downtown Petersburg. Not only are their pastries is delicious, you especially should try the maple and bacon donut, just saying. They do specialty cakes if you need one and their baker is awesome. She takes pride in her work and just tell her what you wants and she makes it happen
Delicious doughnuts! Went on a Saturday morning, and while there wasn't really much of a line, there was a steady flow of customers in and out. Good prices for the quality, will definitely go back next time I happen to be in the area!
Went for the 1st time today. They are omg good! Delicious donuts at a reasonable price. I definitely recommend going.
Friendly atmosphere and the doughnuts were amazing !! I had the cinnamon sugar, blueberry and the chocolate sprinkles ! Absolutely delicious !! Can’t wait to visit again !!
Great little Bakery, Lots of choices! Very friendly staff, very helpful! Great yummy sweets!!
Boston cream donut filling was rancid
Great customer service. Amazing workers
Delicious locally owned bakery. The donuts and pecan sticky are particularly good.
Love this bakery... but: flew into Richmond and made a special trip for nothing. The sign in the door said open Sundays till 5:00pm. I got out of my car and walked to the door to find it locked. Another sign was on the window near the door that said “Closed.” A worker was inside pretending she didn’t know I was standing there. As I drove off I noticed another person walk up to the door...
We had a wedding reception there and it was AMAZING!!!
I'm a fan of local businesses and this is one of my favorites. (Thankfully there are many great local businesses in old town.) I remember when they opened. My wife and I tried it and really liked it. We've been there numerous times since they've opened. We've picked up sweets to go, ate in, ordered cakes for special occasions, etc. The staff is always friendly. The price is on comparable to a chain bakery (like Small Cakes). They're very flexible and open to ideas. Is a great place to try. If you try it you'll like than likely keep going back.
I met a friend here for dessert once. I got an Oreo cheesecake bite and she got a strawberry cream filled donut. Both were delicious. I'd like to go back soon.
Just passing through the area and needed some coffee, but as soon as we walked in we realized we were starving. We tried a variety of donuts and cinnamon rolls. They were worth every penny and every calorie. I would highly recommend this wonderful bakery.
Everyone is friendly and the food is great. They have a great assortment of sweet delicious things. The truffles and the Valentine's special they have done are fantastic. My kids love the maple bacon doughnuts. I'm a fan of their vegan options. Also, they have treats even for dogs. Our dog Sasha gets super excited when we get her these treats. So if you are in area passing through and want something wonderful, please visit this shop. You won't regret it!
Tasty donuts! They offer a unique variety as well as the traditional favorites. They have a nice selection of cupcakes and pastries as well.
The best place for cream filled donuts in the tri-cities area hands down!
Fresh, trendy bakery in Old Town Petersburg. I found this place off the positive reviews on here and it didn’t disappoint. We ordered an everything scone and maple bacon donut. The scone was DELICIOUS! The donut was good. The staff was friendly and helpful. Calm vibes with the sun coming in in the morning and fresh flowers.
So yummy, great donuts!
Love the glazed donuts!
This bakery is AWESOME! When I visit the area I stop by almost everyday to stuff my face with their donuts. Seriously the best donuts I’ve ever had and their staff is so friendly. If you have a sweet tooth and are looking for something worth eating again, go to this bakery!
Their cinnamon sugar donuts are straight fire! They're soft as pillows and not too sweet. Absolutely perfect!
Fresh cakes, cookies, cupcakes, custard, donuts, fritters, etc. Mmm, mmm, good!
Nice bakery and yummy products
Loved the food. Could be a bigger selection.
Great atmosphere. Fresh baked donuts, cookies, brownies, cheesecakes! Great gift spot for the wife, mom, sister.
Delicious as usual. The dogs are gonna love their treats!
They do it all, amazing staff, often make gluten free and vegan for those that have allergies or specific diets, great people.
Cute and cozy place to get a dessert and enjoy a simple cup of coffee. Prices look high ($3 for a specialty donut), but are extremely good when you consider the quality of what you're getting. Enjoy coming with the family so the little one can pick his own treat for the day. Would encourage them to develop their coffee menu a bit, but for a bake shop they have hit the pinnacle of their craft!!!
The cakes for my daughter's first birthday were great! The whipped cream cheese icing is the best I've tasted. Great experience!
Good doughnuts. They taste amazing when they're fresh so get there in the morning on Friday or Saturday after 0930 to get the vegan kind! All items pictured are vegan.
Hands down the best donuts in Petersburg. The strawberry cream donut is heavenly.
I have been ordering fromthis bakery since they opened. I have not been disappointed and neither will you. There is nothing I have requested that was unable to be made and made well. I highly suggest one of everything. LOL
Great experience!!! Friendly staff and excellent sweet treats
Great food with awesome flavor! Try the maple bacon donut! You'll love it.
I purchased their flourless chocolate cupcakes, they were delicious. Also bought dog treats (cookies in the shape of a doggie bone) for my dogs. One dog loved the treat while the other didn't. Overall great experience there and friendly staff.
A hidden gem. A cozy and relaxed environment. Loads of tasty treats to choose from. Nice place to stop in for coffee and midmorning tasty treat.
First time and will return. We enjoyed their doughnuts. Next time will make sure to include photos.
Usually drive all the way to richmond for donuts. These.Are.The.Bomb. Seriously. Go here before you drive for your donuts, and if you're a local- walk to get this. You won't be mad. Best $13 dozen I've ever gotten.
Got a pumpkin pie here Christmas Eve. Served it to my family Christmas Day. It was undoubtably the worst pumpkin pie I have ever put in my mouth. On top of that I paid 15 bucks for it. Save your money and go to the Walmart deli. Better price and better Quality.
Nice little bakery with unique finds
Awesome staff and delicious baked goods at a decent price.
I have order several big cake from here for special occasions & have enjoyed each one. The taste and presentation is great.
Cute place, donuts were donuts. I would have given more stars if the staff was more friendly. Nobody said hi when we walked in or when we got to the counter. The guy finally said, "what can I get for you" after about a minute of us standing in front of him at the counter. The lady who checked us out wasn't anymore friendly. When she came out she also didn't say hi & just went right into, "have you been helped? What can I get you?" A smile and a hello to start would be great! Their donuts are stacked up way high so you can't really see what they offer. You have to be able to read or know what the ingredients are - definitely not something my 4 year old can do. Even with a chair she was only able to see the bottom 2 rows of 4 of the donuts. They did offer lots of baked goods including some vegan options. Unfortunately all of the vegan options have soy in them :( Aquafaba!!! Or other egg replacements is so much better and non carcinogenic! Anyways, we spent waaay more than anticipated $26 for a dozen donuts + a cinnamon roll & 2 specialty donuts that don't taste much different than the cheap Asian donut shop that you can spend about $10 less for the same thing. If they were more friendly we would consider making it a special treat from time to time even with the cost, but you really just can't get past feeling like a number to people with no customer service skills.
Awesome great job
This is the ONLY place to get donuts and pastries within a reasonable distance from Fort Lee.
Everytime i visit my mom at the tri-cities area, i make it a point to pass by buttermilk bakery to buy an assorted dozen of the very delicious donuts. Favorites are boston cream, maple bacon and cranberry lemon. Highly recommended place.
Excellent donuts and cupcakes. Slightly high in price
We love this place. Tried a lot of different things so far and have yet to be disappointed. Custom cakes are good too.
Wow!!! I was traveling with my wife, and encountered this fancy place. We enjoyed cakes a lot. Beautiful place.
I love the donuts.... I love the opportunity to get vegan or gluten free options. the only fault, is there's not enough of those options--yet. but talk about Y-U-M-M-Y!
While visiting the area, I tried their gluten free cup cakes. Delicious and fresh! When I returned two months later to the area, I made a special trip to go here again just for their delicious gluten-free cupcakes. Thank you! We also ordered the red velvet cake for a birthday. Everybody said it was so good!
1st and last time. I brought 4 cupcakes. two lemon, vanilla and a strawberry. The icing was extremely good except for the vanilla icing. it lacked the vanilla taste. Moving on the cupcake itself. Dry and tasteless. It taste and felt like i was eating a week old cupcake. Since i brought a lemon cupcake i expected the cupcake to be lemon. Meaning lemon cake and lemon icing. but no it was a plane dry cupcake with no flavor in the cake batter same for all the other ones too. I even got my mother opinion on them and she said the same thing. i really had high hopes for this place.
Excellent food and chef's. If you haven't been here you need to visit, unless you are diabetic or borderline-diabetic. Awesome place if you need have sweet-tooth. You WILL SATISFIED.
Amazing. Get there early!!
There is a good selections of doughnuts and various cupcakes. The staff is extremely friendly and extremely quick with service. The flavor of the cheesecake is rich.
always good and fresh with new flavors.. they have vegan and i believe gluten free items also..
Enjoyable and comfortable.
Wonderful local bakery! Everything I have tried was amazing, but the hummingbird cake is a specialty! Great place to visit in Petersburg!
Took one bite of the peanut butter mousse parfait and needed a moment to praise God for his plenteous wonders and undeserved mercy in my life. And I’ve been back and forth with my religious beliefs for a while now, but it’s amazing how one dessert can put things into perspective for you. Anyways, I digress... To break this down as best as possible (I’m no expert): This bad boy comes in a (pint sized?) plastic container with a lid on and is served chilled. 4 layers... 1 of moist chocolate cake, then 1 of soft and succulent peanut butter mousse, then more cake, then more mousse, then crunchy li’l chocolate balls of goodness sprinkled on top. They were playing Radiohead when I walked in, too. Bonus points. I would have loved some milk to go with it, but wasn’t about to pay $2 for it. That’s prob not an issue for most people. I’m just cheap. Overall, I’m not sure a better place for desserts exists on Planet Earth. I’d need to return several times to be completely sure of that... and I just might even though I live an hour and a half away. But there are so many things to choose from here, and they all look fantastic. I had to ponder my decision for several minutes while others went before me. I def chose wisely. No doubt you will too.
Amazing fresh donuts and pastries! Glad I dont live nearby or I would be an extra 50lbs haha!
I really did not like the hummingbird parfait. There was just too much whipped cream. The ratio of whipped cream to cake was totally off. I felt as though I was eating pecans and whipped cream.
Oh. My. God. I have found my donut shop for my time here at Fort Lee. Love their Maple Bacon Doughnuts!!! And the customer service is Awesome!
Excellent service. The product was fresh. The apple fritter was so soft and just delicious. I would definitely recommend you stop in and enjoy the delectables.
Delicious! I've been to Buttermilk Bake Shop several times now - and each time I'm greeting by lovely, professional folks. Everything on display looks good but I come for the donuts.The donuts are INSANE! Be sure to follow them on instagram for delicious cake options should you ever need a cake for an event!
A local, quality Baker. Freshly baked cookies, cup cakes and specialty option every day. Cakes are also available both custom and standard.
A really great treat,the sweet potato pie is to die for.Cakes are just like they came out of your grandmother's kitchen.
Amazing place, go eat there!
Love the carrot cupcakes delicious great
Awesome place in pburg
Best bake shop in the whole Richmond area. The owners and staff are so nice. Everything about this place is perfect!
Really great donuts..!
Excellent donuts, cakes, cookies, you name it! Cozy little shop to sit and eat or grab and go. Highly recommended.
Hold on to your hat !!! And try thos mini cheese cakes with an oreo cookie for a crust !!!
These donuts are SO good! Also they promised the vegan donuts are just as good & DEFINITELY would not turn you into a vegan.
Expensive but very clean and professional.
Think of this place as sort of a gourmet donut type of shoppe. The prices of the items may shock a first time customer. For example, normal sized cupcake is about $2.50 a piece, at the time that I wrote this. I haven't tried them, but I have tried several different types of their donuts, and they are great!! Why did I rate them 4 stars then? The various donuts are a 5, but the prices are a little steep, so I feel that rates a 2. I probably would frequent them more often if it wasn't for the prices. I probably purchase from there once every 3 months, but if the prices were a little lower, I might go there once every couple of weeks, or once a month. I really feel that everyone should try their plain donuts at least once.
They really really have the best FRESH strawberry and blueberry buttercream donuts. They offer OH SO many sweets, great to have a bakery in the tri-cities area. Not too big, so one should be able to get what they are looking for or at least have it made.
Limited selection but everything very tasty. I'll take quality over quantity.
Fantastic! My daughter is allergic to eggs, so I was excited to find that they make Vegan doughnuts on Saturday mornings. We previously had to go to Sugar Shack to get something she could have...and we like these much better. Support local, especially when it is this awesome!
Amazing doughnuts and friendly staff!
Love. Love! LOVE this place. Vegan? No problem. Ben and his wonderful staff have you covered. Do yourself a favor, and get down to this cozy and quaint bake shop.
Great customer service, and the best donuts and cakes in town! We've tried everything they have to offer, down to the doggy biscuits, and everything tastes so good and it's always fresh. My personal favorite was a special made tres leches cake, it was hands down the best tres leches I've ever had.
Buttermilk Bake Shop is a wonderful place to go to enjoy yummy donuts, cookies, cupcakes, and cakes. Recently they took care of my daughter and son-in-law's wedding. We had blueberry, lemon and glazed donuts; we also had gluten free cupcakes and a small 6" wedding cake. They did an outstanding job. Everything was delivered on time, the food was fantastic and very yummy. The donuts were so light and tasty where it almost melted in my mouth. As you can see in the picture of cutting the cake, several donuts had already disappeared. Thank you to Laura and the team for doing a great job!
Cupcakes were awful. Tasted like the refrigerator case.
What a cute little bakery. We grabbed some classic rolls for Thanksgiving that were wonderful. While we were there, we also tried the pistachio cupcake and the pumpkin cranberry donut. Both were delicious! What unique flavors!
Worth the trip. Chocolate cake is moist, rich and just the best. Love the doughnut and cupcakes. Great selection
Omg when you walk in it is like a candy store full of baked goods. They have a great variety including gluten free as well. It smelled amazing. Everything looked so good, I just wanted to have a piece of it all. The right amount of sweet.
They are a full service bakery with some great donuts. My fiance and I are having our wedding cake done by them, the tasting was informative and Laura was more than helpful to execute our vision for our big day.
A great place for baked goods. They always have something unique to offer. And they have vegan cupcakes, cookies, and donuts! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Happy to have this place in the area.
Great place! they have vegan options too which is great :) lots of different kinds to choose from and the homemade cakes are awesome!
Small little bake shop offering a variety of baked goods. Cozy place to get a pastry and coffee and sit inside and people watch. A little pricey but, offerings are good.
Great pies and cupcakes. Cute atmosphere and wonderful customer service. I wish they made their hummingbird cake without coconut or place coconut on half the cake.
What a gem -- the baked goods are absolutely delicious. Great vegan options as well.
Good pastries but they should have a call in for large donut orders. When you just want one or two donuts but you're waiting behind someone who wants 3 dozen and they take almost every donut they have, that's rediculous. That leaves none for the rest of us. A better system would be nice.
I had my wedding last month and picked Buttermilk Bake Shop the month beforehand due to my other baker going MIA. I was so cautious after that, but they more than exceeded my expectations. From the first tasting, they were wonderful. They worked with us to stay within my budget and moved things around to work. We decided on donuts and a lemon cake and it was AMAZING. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how delicious it was. 10/10 recommend! We plan to come back every year on our anniversary to get a cake.
Yummy, yummy,yummy even their vegan options are delicious
Just visiting and heard about this place. The maple bacon doughnuts were worth the extra charge. The other doughnuts we bought also were great. Highly recommended!!!
Pretty good donuts at this shop. Looks to be a good bakery.
Delicious..fresh..tasty...so many varieties. You will not be disappointed at all!
I LOVE THIS PLACE! Almost As Much as I LOVE THE BACON MAPLE DOUGHNUTS! OMG! LOVE ,LOVE LOVE THEM!!
The clerk was so sweet, I really liked her. We will be back.
