10 Best Austin Bakeries

  • 602 W Annie St, Austin
    Elexa Martinez - Wonderful little bakery and coffee shop. Our favorite for macaroons and their almond croissant is heavenly. Right in the heart of South Austin and next to the Greeting from Austin Mural. They also offer drive up.
    Julie Joyce - Macarons, eclairs, croissants, cream puffs, scones, crobrios, I could go on and on. Everything is so good.
    Liz Stella - Efficient service and an outstanding selection of utterly delicious cakes and pastries! The most mouth-watering french pastries you'll find in ATX. Personal faves are the eclairs and vanilla/choc cronut. Divine!

    Elexa Martinez - Sugar Mamas has been our go to bakery for well over 12 years at least for cupcakes and cookies. Their cupcakes are in our opinion the best in town!! Also if you are looking for the best cookie you have ever had get the everything cookie from Sugar Mamas you will not be disappointed.
    Julie Joyce - A bakery in a vintage building, with lovely and delicious cupcakes, cookies and cakes. They have seasonal and boozy flavors as well. Also sell bars and do custom orders. We ordered our kids first birthday party cupcakes from here.

    Sara Marie - The name does not lie. These cakes truly rock!!! The taste and density of their cakes are perfection.

    Christy, the owner, is so attentive and her attention to detail is top-notch. She will literally bring your ideas to life! For those Austin fans who can't get enough of competition cooking shows, here's your chance to say you had your cake made by that cool gal on Sugar Rush and Cake Hunters.

    Plus, everything is baked from scratch and made with only real butter as all desserts should be. Otherwise, what's the point?
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - Her cakes do rock. She will have you cake talked about on social media or months after your event.
    Matthew Chambers - I have seen Cake Rocks amazing work for years, the owner is hands on, makes amazing cakes that seem almost impossible yet are incredibly delectible!

    Sara Marie - This is our go-to place for any celebration in my house! When I first moved here, had no idea a Bundt cake could be so good. I was gifted one and thought, “Who even eats bundt cakes.” My family finally tried it a couple of days later and we could not believe we had been missing out!
    My mouth is watering just writing this. You cannot go wrong!

    Several locations and they offer customization for special occasions.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - my wife loves this place.
    Michael Lafears - If you like bundt cakes this is the place for you. Personal size cakes comes in 5 specialty flavors. A great treat when you have a sweet tooth.

    Elexa Martinez - My absolute favorite scone in town is at Crema, a sweet South Austin bakery and coffee shop. They have so many delicious pastries and the scones, I highly recommend. These ladies really have taken "serve the community" to a whole new level. Not only do they serve us with their delicious bites and yummy coffee, they have gone above and beyond helping the community during the past year and a half.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - my wife loves the bakery. I think probably the best one in South Austin.
  • Austin, Texas
    Sara Marie - The one cake pop that I was able to grab before my teens got to them was delish!

    When it comes to cake, the texture is everything for me and this did not disappoint. We ordered the red velvet ones so would definitely recommend. We also got a couple of hot chocolate bombs: strawberry and a raspberry. They LOVED those too!

    Plus! I didn’t even expect them to be packaged so well. I’ll definitely be ordering again.
    Dylan Armstrong - Delicious handmade chocolate, highly recommend
    Kristina Elmore - As a true lover of chocolate and raised in Switzerland, King’s Chocolates always makes delicious chocolate treats. I am a big fan of the bark and chocolate covered strawberries. You can’t go wrong with anything you order! It always satisfies my chocolate sweet tooth. Also, I love to order chocolate for gifts and parties!

    Julie Joyce - Tiny pies are made from scratch and baked fresh daily. There are sweet, savory and seasonal/holiday flavors. I have never seen someone not smile, when they get a tiny pie.
  • 1814 E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Austin • East Austin
    Liz Stella - This is a great all-day bakery/restaurant/café where you can enjoy a simple snack made with locally sourced ingredients or a few yummy cocktails. Their Buckwheat Almond Financier is my new fave go-to baked good! Nicely spread out outside and accommodating for young kids.
  • 4508 Burnet Rd, Austin • Rosedale
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - Local place with made-from-scratch pastries and sandwiches. Closes after everything is made that day. Owner can be found there most days.
  • 1700 S Lamar Blvd, Austin
    Julie Joyce - Beautiful, and delicious, cookies in so many themes. The cookies can look like, flowers, animals, superheros, sharks, and even tacos!!
    They even have a party box that you can pick up. We got one for a Christmas party and it contained plain holiday cookie shapes, icing bags and sprinkles for decorating.
