Gerard's bakery is located in a small strip mall next to an Aldi grocery store. The baked goods are delicious and expensive. But, they are well worth the money. The local populace, such as myself, support Gerard's because it is so surprising to find such delicacies in this neighborhood. They are closed on Mondays. They also make a limited variety... More

I have been a faithful customer for many years. The quality of their desserts is always the highest. The display cases are full of beautiful, delicious treats. My personal favorites are the Carrot Cake and Gerardo Cheesecake with fresh fruit grenade. The staff is efficient and always friendly. Please, do yourself a favor and stop in...

The cakes and desserts are always fabulous. Some are works of art. You can't just buy one! The prices are reasonable and they take orders.

It felt like Disney World full of desserts. It's a very busy place, the order of how they do business. Overall, the breakfast sandwich and desserts were delicious.

They do a wonderful job of providing deserts for our local theatre. The cookies and brownies are delicious. The service is very good. The bakery is nice and clean and cheerful. Stop by you won't be disappointed.

A co-worker brought me this HUGE slice of heaven. She didn't realize that strawberry shortcake is my absolute favorite treat in the world. She gave it to me before work and I literally was eating it so fast, I had to get up and walk away from my desk for fear that I would eat it all before lunch. It... More

I have live in Oxonhill for over 20 years...this place has been apart of my family celebrations and breakfast for a long time :)...no other bakery can touch their brioche or their many different cheese cakes. If you want something that you don't see on their menu tell them and they will make it for you. I wanted a black... More

This is a fabulous bakery/pastry shop! You can pre-order a unique dessert with appropriate sentiments or you can also just pick up one of their amazing desserts from the case! Great croissants, too, of course.It's hard to walk out without thinking "I really need one more goodie!"

The best cakes you will ever eat. The desserts are the best and you will be like a kid while trying to decide what to get. Crazy crazy the red velvet cake is the best.
