We had a reservation for a party of four. The hostess barely acknowledged us as we were seated. On the flip side our waiter was very friendly. The atmosphere is special from the decor to the display of the cakes but there were several negatives. We were cramped with two bistro tables pushed together. The tables are so close it... More

This place is unlike anything I have ever seen before. I wish we had one up in Chicago. It's a bake shop with soups and sandwiches. The pieces of cake are huge and could be shared. I had a the chicken salad croissant sandwich, it was amazing. Highly recommend.

The Cake Bake Shop was a welcomed surprise. Every dessert I tried impressed my pallet. Whether it's a midday espresso or a girls date, it is a must try experience.

This was a little piece of heaven for a group of dessert lovers. A sisters weekend in Indy included lunch and treats at this adorable shop. The food was amazing, the service absolutely wonderful and the decor spectacular. Everything was decorated for a Victorian Halloween, but the spirits were completely friendly. Can't wait to return during the Christmas season and... More

The cake is the best anywhere but what makes it memorable is the exquisite ambiance. Chandeliers, China, Crystal, candles and pampering by the wait staff is standard fare here. A must experience if you're in North Indianapolis Broadripple area.

If you like cake, brownies or cookies you have to stop at "The Cake Bake Shop". The servings are huge. And I mean huge. Get extra forks to share and sample whatever your friends get. You may want to make reservations. We were lucky to get a table. Will definitely go back the next time we are in Indianapolis.

Get Some!! Allison Janey and I love ❤️ it!! They have a viewing window available to watch the baking magic happen. They also have an exquisite little dining room for tea time and a blessed little window sweet that allows tiny visitors to "crash" after a sugar high from the rich red velvet cake🍰

Put this on your must do list! Incredible food and desserts that rival any 5 star restaurant! Any that is only the edibles--the décor is crystal classic--image a black and white Halloween theme-- not a niche or corner left out (got to see the restrooms)! Service is great! Make restaurants they fill up fast especially for Sunday brunch! They do... More

This Parisian themed bakery is the perfect spot to have a glass of tea with mom, a glass of wine with your girlfriends or a romantic stop after a dinner date.

Every Cake Has A Story. When you walk through the French doors, the rich aroma of the French and Belgian chocolates immediately greets you. The Cake Bake Shop is a place that will fill up your senses. Have a 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. You can see the locally sourced farm-fresh eggs and the organic milks and creamers nestled in the cooler. Behind the counter, 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 savory experience. Choose from our list of the best wines & champagnes to accompany any of our cakes, cakelettes, pies & desserts.
We make all of our desserts every day from scratch with the best butter, chocolates, fruits, eggs & creams.
All this is experienced in our sweet little cottage that has been remodeled into a elegant, sophisticated bake shop with our beautiful French chandeliers and French influenced furniture. The Cake Bake Shop is the perfect place to spend the best part of your day. Let us be part of your story.
