Good BUT very expensive. Service is just ok....not overly friendly. Know what you want when you get in there because otherwise you may feel rushed.

We decided to walk from our hotel and set out looking for a Dunkin Donuts, but actually stumbled upon Cheri's first. The colorful Coffee sign in the window caught my eye and then we walked in! WOW! This is an old fashioned bakery with cookies, cakes, donuts, and my favorite! Whoopi Pie cookies - YUM! What an amazing find and... More

Until last week, I had only had experienced Cheri's pastries, which are quite good. I stopped by on Good Friday morning to purchase a couple of my usual pastries and saw that the shop had delicious-looking pies for Easter. I decided to purchase the chocolate cream pie, which looked very tempting. And at $16.00 and change, I thought the hefty... More

Since I am 100% Italian, I'm pretty particular about a baker's rendition of Italian specialty pies. This yr I was unable to bake them myself. It was a joy to place my order on-line for a ricotta pie and Italian cream pie for Easter this year and have them both taste authentic! Their other pastries, doughnuts, especially the crullers, are... More

Tried Cheri's again. Hard rolls were stale and the donuts as well. Too bad as there is a shortage of bakeries in our town.

Stopped in to grab something for our trip. It took us a while to even decided on what to get. We got a wide assortment of things, and each was delicious. The weekend staff was very nice and helpful. I wanted to get a cream filled pastry, and she reminded me it needed to be eaten right away or it... More

We recently had a death in the family and a friend brought us baked goods from Cheri's. The coffee cake, muffins and cookies were delicious!!! I brought some to work and everyone asked where they came from. All the items stayed fresh and retained their quality after a few days. I will purchase baked goods there to bring to friends... More

This Bakery's Owner, the Elder Male (Pat), is a very nice man but other than that... the much older looking white haired woman (wife, Cheri) is extremely ignorant and the staff less than adequate; the coffee cakes are OK but most of the Italian pasties are definitely not authentic but the plain cookies are fine & the plain bread OK....

Everything here is really, really good. Their coffee cakes, muffins, pastries, to me are the best. Holiday specials like the Easter Ham Pies an Zeppoles are quite remarkable.
