“Huge disappoinment”

Smith Island Cake Company
Ranked #3 of 4 Restaurants in Ewell
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 January 2018

Having lived on Smith Island, I know all about the cakes. This is definitely not it. The bakery is owned by 'city people' who changed everything to their way in order to make the best profit. The result is a highly compromised recipe. Their cakes are all frozen for shipment. Locals can all tell you where to get 'real Smith Island cakes'. Ours ended in the trash can!

They have relocated to Chesapeake Ave in Crisfield. You can walk in and get a slice or a whole cake. The cakes come in two sizes, small and large. They also sell ice cream to go with your cake! They offer several varieties of cakes too. If you are staying in Crisfield do not miss Smith Island Cakes.

They served a variety of cakes for our crab feast and each flavor was as good or better than the last. We had over 6 different flavors and they were each outstanding. Fun, great tastes.

I am beyond disappointed as false claims state this is the island bakery! NOT SO! Seems a businessman rented the place a short period of time, stole the name, never got the real recipe, and left folks high and dry on the real Smith Island! If you want a real Smith Island cake, stop at a local restaurant or order one from the Smith Island Inn, but don't be fooled by the empty storefront with claims of a bakery here!

Visited the island prior on a Saturday and the bakery was closed. Make a special trip back with sister from FLA due to reading up on the bakery and the ABOUT US info on the website. Website still reflects Ewell but it's CLOSED - FOR SALE BY OWNER! Paid for a ferry trip $26 pp, lunch, golf cart, and the first stop was going to be the bakery on the island. Even checked the website before we left VA to ensure they were open. Current website reflects they are open but no longer on the island. Now located in Crisfield. Decided to research the new location after we got off the ferry and when we mentioned we went over to the island just to check the bakery out as the website reflects Ewell location - he said, "okay". No response Nothing more, nothing less. Oh well. We did buy a delicious Smith Island cake from the restaurant on the island and it was delicious. Won't waste our time in the future with this bakery.
