I didn't even know this little shop existed until we went to the store next door. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you walk in it's a decent sit down cafe with wifi. The baked goods are great! Got a two thumbs up for their chocolate chip brownies and Nutella cupcakes from my two boys. It's a nice place to sit and work as well. Plenty of parking! Definitely go visit if you're looking for a sweet treat or a place to hide out and work.

The owners are very friendly. I’m a huge fan of their apple cinnamon rolls. They’re amazing. The last time I was at their bakery; they were aware that I would be stopping in and saved me a cinnamon roll as they were selling out quickly. That’s top tier customer service. Plus I haven’t found anything that was not up to par. My coworkers and I enjoy getting treats from them.

Bull City Bakeshop is one-of-a-kind. I am obsessed! My girls love going for a sweet treat on our off day and the pumpkin muffin is my absolute favorite. I also use Bull City Bakeshop whenever I need a wholesale/caterer and they consistently hit it out of the park!

I just had the most life changing pumpkin chocolate chip muffin I’ve ever had in my entire life. The decor is superb, the atmosphere is phenomenal. And LITERALLY everything I tasted was incredible. (I will be returning ASAP when in the chapel hill area) but I ended up purchasing 4 pastries based on looks and the flavors did not disappoint in the slightest. 10/10 would recommend.

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.
