This quaint little house turned high end bakery is also an adorable ladies lunch place. I was there with a couple colleagues and had the Cream of Mushroom soup and the ham and gruyere baguette sandwich. It was incredible!!! I also bought a lemon bar and piece of apple crumb pie for my daughter and she loved it! The cakes... More

I had waited all year for the spring menu and the Neapolitan cake. I finally made it to the shop today to get it before the menu changed to the summer menu but sadly, the Neapolitan cake was removed early. To top it off, I got the lemon instead and it was no substitute. This is a beautiful restaurant and... More

The Cake Bake Shop is a pink dreamland for women! The minute you walk through the doors, you feel like Cinderella. The menu is limited but I was still able to find a great salad that is gluten-free and dairy-free. I wanted chicken for my salad but they were out that day. It was still deliciouos. Unfortunately I wasn't able... More

I've been complaining for years that we need a true blue bakery. Finally heard about Cake Bake, so my friends and I visited. Not disappointed! Had to make reservations because it is a really popular destination. They do serve soups and sandwiches, but I went right for dessert and a glass of champagne with a hibiscus thrown in. My cake...

Treated my Mom to an early Mother's Day at the Cake Bake shop. Her and I both had a wonderful time. Both got soup and salad, then had to have a piece of cake. She had the champagne raspberry, always delish and I tried the Neapolitan. Strawberry was my favorite. Purchased two Marie Antoinettes the lavender and lemon. Too much... More

My friend and I just visited Cake Bake this past weekend. I had been once before and it was her first time. Every visit is sure to be memorable. They always decorate the whole restaurant in a magical theme and the food is always top notch! We enjoyed a quiet evening together as we had our cake, and ate it... More

To celebrate my daughters' birthdays (twins), we decided to "try" the Cake Bake Shop. However, even calling a week before, the restaurant was completely booked for Saturday afternoon (it was Mother's Day weekend), however they told us that they did take walk ins. We arrived at around 12:30 P.M., were greeted warmly, but was told it would probably be around... More

When you enter the restaurant your eyes literally feast on the elegance in the decor. It is like walking into an expensive fairy tale. BREATHTAKING! And then you get their menu. While not extensive regarding foid choices, what you do have is rich exquisite food that tastes as good as it looks! Then you order dessert! Isn't that why you... More

Gwendolyn Rogers has created a storybook restaurant in a cottage that took two and a half years for her to design & remodel. When you walk through the French doors, the sparkling chandeliers, antiqued mirrors, French inspired furniture, beautiful seasonal decorations and the rich aroma of the French chocolate cakes baking in the oven immediately greets you. Enjoy French pressed coffee with a slice of homemade cake or pie. Enjoy a cup of warm sipping chocolate topped with fresh whipped cream and a warm cookie right out of the oven. She offers an incredible lunch of ‘The Best Quiche You Will Ever Have’, homemade soups, salades, sandwiches, even a true French Croque Monsieur. The evenings offer charcuterie boards with imported meats, cheeses and olives served on elegant marble tiers. Behind the kitchen window, master bakers gently sieve non-bromated flours from Vermont, aluminum-free baking powders & sugars and large pots of French & Belgian Chocolate melting on the stove. Once the oven dings, everything at the Cake Bake Shop has come together to create a truly sweet and savory experience. Choose from our list of the best French wines & champagnes to accompany any of our lunches, cakes, cookies, pies & desserts. Gwendolyn’s Cake Bake Shop has become the destination of Indianapolis for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and all the special occasions life offers.
