If you haven't gone to Bull City Bake Shop, you are truly missing out! The peanut butter cookie was the best that I have ever bought at a bakery and the blondie was delicious also! The atmosphere is welcoming and the staff is beyond kind! Lydia, the owner, pours everything into her bake shop. You are likely to see her smiling face in the kitchen while you order! I have meant to take pictures of the goodies but I end up eating them prior to picture taking.

Bill City Bake Shop is sincerely THE BEST bakery in the area. They have been open about a year but I have been more times than I can count. Quality is always consistent and everything is delicious. Their cookies and cupcakes are to die for, and all the associates there are so kind. The owner/baker is a Black woman and she is truly an inspired pastry artist. I always suggest this place because of its high quality and great service. I would say my favorite things have been the sea salt chocolate chip cookies and the birthday cupcake. Literally obsessed with this place!

I went in for cupcakes for a friend's birthday based off of the 5 star reviews. Great atmosphere, super polite but the vanilla cupcake that I had tasted like dough and was dry and the chocolate icing tasted like nothing but sugar. I Live for sweets and I couldn't eat the icing especially when I couldn't even taste the chocolate. Can't say that I will be back. $3.75 per cupcake and I could've made them and not had the after taste that won't go away. I sure hope it was just my experience or just a bad round.

This little gem was discovered while I was on my way to Panera, late morning on a Thursday. The staff were attentive and friendly with good suggestions. My order consisted of a slice of banana nut bread and a blondie with caramel (can't remember the name). The blondie had a good balance of salty and sweet. Now, the banana nut bread- SO GOOD. Incredibly moist and melts in your mouth. It had fresh bananas and crunchy walnuts (I think they were walnuts). Definitely will be a repeat purchase. The carrot cake is next. This shop is tucked away, but well worth the pitstop. I'm glad I had issues with the Panera app.

I ordered 6 dozen cupcakes for the baby shower for my dear friend's daughter. The order was exactly what I ordered, it was packaged and ready to go at the time I requested them and they were decorated beautifully. The young man who was working insisted on taking them out to the car for me. The entire experience made an extremely hectic time less stressful.

I stopped in yesterday for the first time and got a much needed iced coffee and a very delicious chocolate chip cookie and blueberry muffin. There were so many beautiful desserts in the case. I can’t wait to try some of the cakes!

We had salted chocolate chip cookie, cinnamon roll,.cake pops, and banana pudding. The pudding was the bomb and my kids loved the cake pops.

I stopped by after leaving my now favorite dentist at O2 DENTAL. I had to wait a few hours to partake of the deliciousness but it was worth it. I had to swing by Bull City Bake Shop. I got their wonderful cinnamon roll. I had earned a free cookie/cupcake through points. I chose the Oatmeal Raisin cookie. Oh my word! Delicious!! Their customer service is 5 star as usual! Yes, stop by, they are right beside TMobile. Great parking-Not hard to find a space.

This is a sweet toothed dream come true. Everything is amazing and fantastic. I had them make me a whole strawberry cake and it took the top prize of best tasting thing I have ever tasted. The banana bread brought out the monkey in me. Y’all stop by and get some sweets. Prices are middle of the road but for the taste they are affordable. Heck make it a date night treat. Bye

This is the best bakery I've been to in the Raleigh/Durham area. I've had a variety of items so far. My favorites are the cinnamon bun and the banana pudding. Definitely going there at least once a month. Great customer service and smiles too.

We came in 30 minutes before closing and options were limited but boy they looked good. We still ended up leaving with over $20 worth of sweets. The service was great and I will definitely be back…next time early in the day! :)

Just found the bakery today. Staff was super friendly and helpful and the cakes and cupcakes looked really lovely. The hummingbird cake was moist, rich, and had plenty of nuts while the strawberry shortcake was light and fluffy with a really good flavor. Usually I don't like strawberry shortcake but this was the best I've had. The kids liked the cupcakes too though that's not really a surprise or saying much as I can't imagine a cupcake they wouldn't like but the icing I swiped a taste of was good.

Nice bakery in the Patterson Place shopping area, near Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohls. Clean store, friendly guy rang me up. I liked the artwork on the walls. Their cupcakes looked delicious but since I got it to go and was driving I picked the peanut butter cookie and the raisin oatmeal cookie. They were huge! Total with tax was about $8. Didn’t realize until I got home I got the chocolate chip cookie instead of the peanut butter. Oh well. Nice place. Go check them out!

First off, I’m going back!! I called and asked about cinnamon rolls and I was told by Lydia (hopefully I spelled it right) that a new batch just came out of the oven. When I arrived, I was immediately greeted and taken care of. Best of all, Lydia remembered me from our phone call! The cinnamon rolls are fantastic. It’s how you expect a really good cinnamon roll to taste. 10 out of 10 would recommend!!!!
