REVIEWS OF Heritage Bakery & Café IN Virginia

Jeanne Heil

Good execution of French pastries. The croissants are intended for sandwiches, but they make great sandwiches. The sweet pastries are generally glazed with an orange glaze, buy if you're okay with that, they're good. They brew Greenberries coffee, too, which we like.

Busting little shop, my bagel with smoked salmon was really good, and they didn't skimp on the capers. I wanted half the things on the many and everything from the bake case, definitely gonna go back.

We had a great time enjoying Sunday tea. The wait staff was friendly, kind, knowledgeable, and timely. Can't ask for much more than that! The pastries and tea were delicious. We will definitely be back!

Isabel and her team are the greatest! They made our wedding cake for our wedding on September 2, and were so professional, sweet, and easy to work with! Everyone loved the cake. Thank you so much to the Heritage Bakery & Cafe team!

Love this sweet spot! My daughter and I try to get there several times a month to sample their scrumptious and creatively baked goodies and sip on coffee. They also have lovely lunch and breakfast savory dishes and take orders for parties and celebrations. Isabelle is doing an amazing job running this small downtown business. Definitely stop by.

This place is soo cute! The tea cups and plates are so beautiful!! Wish the menu was a little bigger because for a picky person like me all I could order was the waffle (which was delicious like crazy)

Zachary Gochenour

Fairy-tale-like cafe that exudes cuteness like nothing else. Friendly staff, really dedicated to their craft. Not what I call diet-friendly, but a great treat everyone so often, especially on a cool morning, sitting on the patio. Quintessential Harrisonburg.

They are friendly. The food is great and fresh. Gluten free and very careful about cross contamination. It's the best gluten free place to eat in harrisonburg .

Kay Riggleman

Nice place for a break. Freshly made food. Friendly service.

Allie Motyka

Working across the street is a dangerous place to be! I have easy access to all the most delicious things! Right now, I'm on stuck on the Peachy Keen, a sandwich with peaches, goat cheese, basil and honey, soooo good! Heritage has sweet and savory options, keeping the balance. I haven't had anything I didn't like here! Thank you, Isabelle, for keeping us fed over here!

Random hours!! Of the 6 times trying to go here they were closed 3 of those times. Better check before making the drive out. Other than that just a cute tea shop


Excellent menu selection, lucas roasting coffee available and an amazing staff that was on top of everything!

We come to Harrisonburg quite frequently with my husband's job. It is so much fun when traveling to find those special quintessential places to dine. Heritage Bakery & Cafe' is just that! I came in today and got the buntd with assorted fruit topping and a cup of tea. Let me tell you it was delish!! We will definitely be putting this shoppe on our top to return list.

Lewis V

Excellent little spot! Highly recommend the bacon, egg & cheese croissant! All the baked goods looked delicious as well! Settled on a blueberry muffin and it did not disappoint!

Beatrice Rodewald-Bock

Really cute place! We had two coffees, a sandwich, and a scone that were all very good. The staff was really nice, as well.

Shawn Gatesman

Fantastic little gem in H'burg! The treats are just as delicious as they look. Such a quaint spot, fun to see this little place rock!

Kristy Moding

The staff was very friendly but they told us the muffins were amazing. We were skeptical as they were all gluten free. We were assured they would taste normal and delicious. They were dry and tasteless. They should carry regular muffins with gluten if they are going to say the place is known for its muffins.

Samantha D'costa

Super cute little bakery on the main downtown street. Good food and beverages. Great service

Allen Rohrer

Great place for coffee and delicious smoked salmon bagel! Great atmosphere

Marty Schreck

Great place for a quick bite! I have made it a habit to always go for the Daily Specials!!!

tere rios

I love this unique eatery/bakery. As soon as you walk in the aroma of freshly bake goods entice you to indulge. Lovely ambiance and great customer service.

Edward Oates

One of my favorite lunch stops in downtown Harrisonburg. They have the best shaded, pet friendly, beautiful patio to enjoy with your food and people watch street downtown. The staff is super nice and even got my dog some water and brought food out. The price is super affordable for the amenities you get. For roughly ten bucks, I got a delicious sandwich, local green salad and a hunk of fruit for roughly 10 bucks. 10/10

Heritage Bakery is absolutely my favorite place to Harrisonburg. It offers the coziness of a mom & pop cafe along with the pastries and meals that keep you coming back. It is my go-to place to bring friends and family from out of town, and every time we go they ALWAYS say it was one of the cutest places they have been to! Above all that, the owners and workers at the cafe are incredibly kind, accommodating, and sweet. They make you feel special every time you order. Heritage will always be my favorite part about Harrisonburg, and you should DEFINITELY stop by if you're driving through town!

My favorite breakfast stop in downtown Harrisonburg.

Michael J Vasko

Drove down 81 from PA on our way to Gatlinburg, TN, and decided to stop in Harrisonburg for a bite to eat. Walking through town we found Heritage attached to the Visitor's Center. What a delight! Quiche served in the morning topped off with a wonderful apple turnover. My Wife and I heartily recommend stopping in if you are passing through Harrisonburg!

Nicky Swayne

FINALLY someone offers something 'simple' like this in Harrisonburg! Love!

Lovely, casual, fresh made sandwiches and desserts. Large selection of teas. Many gluten-free choices! Highly recommend.

This is such a sweet bakery. You must follow them on Facebook, their display case changes each day and they post the most delicious photos! The flavors are creative and everything is always very whimsical in appearance. For such fresh food I've never had to wait long for lunch or breakfast. Kid friendly, pet friendly outdoors, totally my favorite bakery ever.

Robert Turner

I've been coming here sporadically since they opened. Always the friendliest staff and great food.

My most favorite place to come to. Amazing people, amazing food. Awesome atmosphere. I’d come here everyday

Jessica T

They're very cute and it's a nice atmosphere. I've been here several times and had varying experiences. The crumb bars are generally quite good, as was the ginger cookie I had, and my husband's bacon egg and cheese croissant was tasty. Unfortunately, I got a spinach egg and cheese croissant, and the spinach was just a few raw leaves on top of the egg. I expected sauteed spinach with some sort of seasoning. It had no flavor, which was very disappointing, but luckily smothering it in Cholula helped some. Macaron had a very hard, sort of hollow shell, which I don't think is supposed to happen. The coffee is fairly average and nothing special. I do wish they had decaf, but the couple times I've asked they've said they can make some but their tone makes it sound like it would be a big inconvenience, so I always just say thanks anyway. Sort of awkward customer service! I'd rather them just say it wasn't available and save us both the awkwardness. Haha Overall not totally incredible, but a nice place to sit outside on a cool day, and there are some good pastries as well!

Katt Staton

First time in today. Super cute and quaint. The chocolate espresso cupcake was STRONG, but that's how espresso anything should be. Lemon blueberry pound cake was also delicious.

Jeanine Wilson

I love this bakery. Not only are the sandwiches and salads delicious, but the baked goods are wonderful and different every day. I love treating myself to lunch here! Also, I recently ordered a special order 9” cake to celebrate an award that my workplace won, and the cake was the best on I have ever eaten. The cake was moist, the frosting not too sweet and it was beautiful decorated with flowers and a macaron. They communicated well with me about the order and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Highly recommend!

Barbara Burchell

Excellent food...delightful experience.

Ethan Morris

Delightful daily specials and great salads.

Ian King

Tim Williams

Looks cute but... Absolutely atrocious pastries. I didn't mind the coffee but my gf said it was awful... Pastries might've done her in. I think one of them was a raspberry rosemary cinnamon roll... Hard no.

Elle Wood

A favorite breakfast & lunch spot in Harrisonburg! Love the varied selection of sandwiches and sweet treats every time I stop in. Incredibly kind staff.

Kate Morris

Delicious treats and lovely people!

Jill Francis

I’d heard good things about this bakery and I wasn’t disappointed. I stopped to grab Macarons to go and wished I’d had time to stay. People were gathered and enjoying each other’s company with fabulous baked goods, and drinks served in lovely teapots, cups and saucers. Macaron flavors today: Jalepeno or Chocolate Carmel. I’m looking forward to returning and staying a while (and there’s decent outdoor seating too)


Chris Michaels

Isabelle and Brenda have created something special right in downtown Harrisonburg. A cozy little place adjoining the visitor center they offer great options for breakfast and lunch along with super desserts and treats that often make the decision difficult. Do I go with the cheesecake slice, or the squirrel shaped ginger cookie? Well, when they have the cheesecake that isn't as hard of a choice. A great place to stop at while visiting downtown, or an excuse to go there!

Carolyn Stephenson

Phoebe Kirby-Glatkowski

Super friendly staff, great food, lovely atmosphere. This bakery is an awesome addition to downtown and ideally located for both tourists and locals. The sandwiches and cupcakes are delicious. Macron wonderland!

Michael Patterson

Very nice little shop, looks like it is locally owned and run. My wife and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary and they were very accommodating as we wanted a cobbler similar to our wedding desert in the same dish. They had it prepped perfectly with their own little touches and we destroyed (consumed) it. Thanks again and highly recommend if you are in the area/hitting up the farmers market.

Alex Shidlovsky

Wonderful atmosphere with a great variety of treats (made fresh daily) and the lunch food was absolutely delicious! Great place for a nice lunch or a quiet place to study.

Lynn Warren

A true Harrisonburg Gem. With fair prices (pastries mostly under $4), strong coffee, a creative unique menu, and a friendly staff; Heritage Bakery is Harrisonburg's premier flagship artistan pastery shop. High quality local ingredients from the co-op are served, but you couldn't tell from the price. Truly, one of the most enjoyable culinary experiences to be had in the Shenandoah valley. Side note: this place is objectively better in quality of product, price, and atmosphere, than the more popular nearby Bella Gelato. (Seriously, some items are double the price like why what) But Heritage is the place you wanna be. It's lit.

Anneke Bauman

My favorite place to grab a treat in Harrisonburg! I love that they offer some vegan and gluten free options as well. Everyone who works at Heritage sports a colorful apron and a big smile! You are extra lucky if you happen to meet the sweet owner, Isabelle.

Lindsay Minnick

Always delicious treats and the most friendly service

Shawn Inlow

Very charming little breakfast nook. A little pricey but worth it. Lovely ambiance. Delicious deserts. You can sit outside under umbrellas or chill inside. Well worth the visit.

Kathy Kinnett

Such a quaint little place for breakfast & lunch. All fresh made foods.

Ryan S

Oh my gosh their sticky bun flavors are out of this world!!!! Strawberry basil, peanut butter cookies and cream...I’d be in trouble if I lived closer to Heritage Bakery. Prices are a little expensive, but that is to be expected from a smaller business.
