    Logan J.

    Central Continental is a 5 star bakery. I don't write reviews too often but felt i had to do something after my experience here. Recently I ordered my dads 60th birthday cake from the bakery. I immediately notice all of there cakes were decorated so much better than other bakeries I have been too. The girl taking my order helped me choose a professional design and recommend yellow cake with fresh strawberries and buttercream frosting. When I brought the cake back home everybody loved the decorations on top. The fresh strawberries and the moist yellow cake made everything complete.

    Overall, my experience was more than i expected. The bakery staff was very polite and helpful. They made my dads birthday very special. I would recommend anybody looking to order a special cake to start here first.

  • Good danishes and coffee cakes

    They do a great job decorating cakes, and their danishes and coffee cakes are really good. Their bread is too commercial, it comes from mixes and I wish they could improve on them and their buttercream frosting. I used to work here. I have no horror stories. this is a very busy bakery with a lot of business and sometimes they have to cut corners, to me the bread, frosting and some of the fillings (custard for example) are reflections of the short-cuts, and that's a shame. Once in a while your layer cake from here will be dry.

  • old world bakery

    I have been going to this bakery for years. I have gone to many bakeries in the city growing up but there is no comparison. This bakery reminds me of stuff my grandmother baked. We ordered our wedding cake from here and all birthday cakes. Never disapointed.

  • Best cakes ever!

    My wedding cake was the best cake or wedding cake I ever had. They have fantastic cakes!

    They are the best!
