We visit the bakery every trip to HHI. The food is good and they have wonderful bakery items. It is not a huge structure, so peak times will be busy. Love the quiche, key lime pie, snickers pie, brownies, and crab tart. You can always...More

We've enjoyed Signe's for breakfast and lunch for many years of HH visits. The quality is high. We love the unique dishes. Too many other restaurants have almost identical menus. Not Signe's.

Signe's Bakery offers fabulous and healthy breakfasts. The inside décor is fun and kitschy. There's an outside patio with umbrellas and lots of parking. Plus it was easy to find. I had the frittata with ham and cheese. The eggs were fluffy and almost floated...More

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes. We make traditional Easter Challah Bread. We also have a wide assortment of other fresh baked buns like Swedish Cardamom rolls. But, unfortunately not the poppyseed strip cakes.

Signe's Heaven Bound Bakery & Café has been a Hilton Head Island tradition since 1972. Signe Gardo still coordinates the operation, which has been featured in numerous national publications as well as the Food Network for its eclectic breakfast and luncheon menu. All-day breakfast includes a remarkably delicius baked French Toast (blueberry, blackberry and old fashioned) as well as fluffy frittatas, hearty shrimp & grits and an assortment of fresh pastries. An array of Signe's specialty salads appeal to local vegetarians as well as her quiches and tarts. Sandwiches run the gamut from turkey & cranberry to Hot Reubens. Then, of course, there are desserts - lots of them, including our renowned double-chocolate "Mud-dauber" cupcake to sweet-potato/pecan pies, fresh key lime pie and a choice of cakes by the slice, made daily.
