Found this gem while visiting the area. Very nice staff. Many of the customers coming in were greeted by name. Repeat customers are always a good sign! Brewed sweet tea was delicious. We had the lunch buffet. Fresh salad. Vegetables. Cooked apples. Fresh watermelon. Tender beef. Dinner rolls. The food tested fresh and homemade. Lots of baked goods available. We enjoyed everything.

Just started working here in Amherst and I've heard a lot of great things about this place. It's super cute when you walk in and I was greeted by the owner. He was absolutely great! I waited about 4 minutes for my breakfast sandwich and also bought some doughnuts while waiting. The food is ridiculously amazing. I've never tasted something so great! I'll definitely come back for the people and food!!!

What a Blessing bakery should be called What A Curse. My family got a sheet cake there. It was our first and last visit. It was only after it all went wrong that we realized none of the reviews were about their cakes. That sheet cake smelled like rotten food and it was really dense and dry. They rarely answer the phone and we live about 30 miles away so ordering in person wasn't an option. After 28 phone calls, the order was placed 3 days in advance. The cake was not ready at the pick up time though and the wait for it was an additional 1.5 hours. The cake was in an aluminum pan with plastic wrap covering it. After the cake was unwrapped at home and cut, and the bad smell was obvious. We called to complain and the lady was very angry. Then she calmed and said maybe something was left out that made it dense. Since she was so angry, she was not told it also smelled horrible (the cake, not the frosting) to avoid her being further upset. They ruined the birthday girl's birthday, which was probably her last with her ill mother. Either it was an accident that something was left out of the cake AND it was left persumably uncovered to absorb odors, or it was on purpose because the lady admitted the man was angry at how she dared to tell him it took 28 calls to order the cake. They said they'd mail a refund and to throw away the cake, but no surprise the refund never came. So, they got away with completely ripping us off. That is who you are supporting when you go there. Seriously, the poor soon-to-be dying woman just wanted a sheet cake for her daughter's birthday, and due to allergies a grocery store cake wouldn't work, so she drove that far, only to have them do God knows what to that cake for it to smell that bad, taste that bad, and be inedible. They should be ashamed of themselves. I don't want this to happen to anyone else!

Jim Thacker

Incredible discovery! Visited for the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last. Lunch buffet was amazing and reminded me of the meals served at my grandmothers house many years ago. All I can say is don't bypass this place or the fine people working there.

It was amazing as always I go their every day Great food great people

Keith Dickinson

We ordered several different donut items one morning. They were all excellent but they do something to the glazed donut that just makes it soooooooo good. My wife and I can only describe is as a "hint of lemon citrus flavor" but it complements the flavor of the donut so well. Too bad I don't get through Amherst very often. I would make it a point to stop there if I did.

Douglas Wheatley

The best donuts and pastries I've had since I left Texas in 1993. The yeast donuts melt in your mouth and the cake donuts are almost as good. The breakfast that they fix is almost as good as grandmother's, yummy!

Virginia Gebhard

Best Bakery!! So glad we didnt drive by. Home made sandwich rolls made this morning. Fresh, tasty and great friendly service. Decorated as though you are in someones house. Fresh, yummy bakery. As great as the reviews were for the buffet, we ordered off menu and loved it. This is a must. We will definetly be back.

We were traveling through looking for a little diner for breakfast.What a Blessing caught our eye it was delightful from the mix match plates ,to the sitting at like community tables The food was delicious looking around at all the happy faces they felt that way too.It is a little hole in the wall with big food flavors on brunch buffet for a Saturday morning.

Boyd Forbes

Very enjoyable. Great food on the brunch buffet. First time here definatly not my last. My hats off to the cook.

Jewel Landis

This place is a blessing in more ways than one! Great southern food, and a unashamed Christian environment! My favorite is the Saturday morning breakfast buffet. There are the scrambled eggs and bacon, but there are also the southern selections of grits, stewed apples, sweet potatoes and other such things. Besides you coffee and pastries. The apple fritters are tops!

David Hogue

Best homemade buffet I've ever had. I can't wait for round 2!!

This place has the best ( as a big guy I know my food ) cream puffs.. They must weigh a pound.. You will need nakins

Breakfast and lunch buffet on Wednesday and Friday. Otherwise, they have sandwiches and subs served on a homemade roll and chips. Limited space, unisex restroom, ample parking. Located in a strip mall. Also have few pastries for sale. Sevaral antiques decorate the interior.

Great food

Drew Kaufman

What an unexpected find in a town is small as Amherst! The employees are smiling and polite, my breakfast sandwich was phenomenal, the potatoes are amazing! The gourmet fresh baked sandwich bread was thick, slightly crispy on the outside, and warm and fluffy on the inside. Generous portion of steaming hot sausage links, melted cheese and fluffy eggs inside the sandwich. The breakfast potatoes require a paragraph all for themselves. Seasoned to perfection and with delicious grilled onions mixed in, they were served to my table piping hot and fresh out of the skillet. I could easily eat a breakfast of only those potatoes and leave full and happy. As I was leaving, I turned and thanked the Chef for the delicious feast, as he was standing there with a large smile on his face talking to some of his loyal customers during a short break from creating his masterpieces . Highly recommend this fantastic local eatery to anyone and everyone!
