Some kind words from our customers
For my boyfriend’s 23rd birthday I ordered him a two tier cake from the Village Bakery. I wanted the cake to be special and the staff worked with me to create the most perfect design! I had a vague idea to incorporate my boyfriend’s vintage Triumph race car into the cake design, I told the staff they could create whatever they wanted with that design. They did not disappoint! The cake was perfect and captured everything that I wanted it too. My boyfriend and his family were blown away by the details and thoughtfulness that went into the creation.
The cake not only looked like it came out of a magazine, but it was delicious too!!! I continue to recommend the bakery to all of my friends.
The added plus was the price was perfect too!Chelsie
Their cakes are always delicious and never dry. We get cakes from Village Bakery for parties and special occasions. I have loved every single cake we’ve gotten from there, and I can’t believe that I had never had a Village Bakery cake until I started working here! But, I’m glad that I have now! My birthday is next week, and without a doubt I’m getting a birthday cake from there.Ashley
I have lived in Tyler,TX most of my 46 yrs. and Village Bakery is a place we have enjoyed since childhood.I had to have a ginger bread cookie whenever my mom would take me. For special occasions her cakes are amazing both in presentation and melt in your mouth. My favorite changes with the seasons… summer favorite has to be strawberry cake, for fall I crave Italian cream cake, Springtime calls for her Easter egg petifores and for the holidays the rolls and chocolate cake with fudge icing are to die for!! Also, my son asks for the Hungarian pull apart bread every time I go. It is like sticky sweet monkey bread that is amazing with coffee or cold milk.
Bettie Smith has continued her same traditions of superb quality and service throughout my lifetime. For a bakery The Village Bakery is superb!!Libby
My daughter’s wedding was May 7, 2011 in Tyler and she picked Village Bakery to do her cake and also the grooms cake. The cake was very important to her and was the focal point of the reception entrance. She met several times with Bettie to go over ideas and perfect her expectations. Being the expert that Bettie is she made the most perfect cakes we have ever seen. And of course they were delicious. The groom wasn’t able to go to the tasting and Bettie sent cake home with us for him to taste. He loved the chocolate and was very excited about His cake. The cakes were more than we could have ever expected and not only was there enough, there was plenty to take home for after the honeymoon. We had two Very Very happy newlyweds and that made us all happy. Thank you Bettie and staff for all your hard work and expertise.Patty
My wife and I ordered our wedding cakes from the Village Bakery and we were very pleased with them. They were very tasty and very well decorated. When we talked to Bettie about what we wanted she was very helpful and made the whole experience painless. Several months later we ordered a Blues Clues birthday cake for our sons 3rd birthday party, and it was awesome. The Blues Clues decorations were adorable, and my son still talks about his Blues Clues cake! I would definately recomend The Village Bakery to anyone in need of a cake or other baked goods for any occasion.Trace
I have been a visitor to the Village Bakery for over twenty years. When my children were young a quick stop for gingerbread men or women or cookies was a must. My dinner guest enjoyed the most delicious desserts that a forty mile drive from Athens could afford. And when my daughter decided to marry, she chose to use the Village Bakery for her wedding cake. The cake was delivered on time to the Athens Country Club, an out of town venue, and was not only delicious but was gorgeously decorated and expertly adorned with brilliant crystals. Of all the vendors we dealt with planning the wedding, we knew through past experience that we need not worry about the cake. Thank you Betty, David and the Village Bakery team for making our most important events throughout the years consistently memorable!Connie
I was a guest at a wedding where both cakes came from Village Bakery. The cakes were both decorated very classically, and fit the decor of the wedding very well. Generally, I am disappointed by “wedding cakes,” however, these cakes proved to be very moist and tasted like something my grandmother would make for my birthday. Next time I’m in Tyler, I may have to stop in!Leigh
Have been going to Village Bakery for many years, and have never been disappointed in anything there. The staff is always helpful, and the quality of the baked items has never changed. When alot of businesses are cutting back, Village has managed to keep the same wonderful items in stock, without skimping on ingredients. Many a party and family gathering has been blessed with the treats from Village, and will continue to be so for as long as they are around.Julia
