We'd heard a lot about Orange Blossom's famous Apple Uglies, and finally were able to snag a couple of them. They are truly ugly, but it's easy to see why they're so popular. They're much like "turtle" pastries -- a doughnut-like pastry with cinnamon and apples baked into them under a heavy, sugary coating. If you're looking for a sweet... More

And was not disappointed by the selection available! The apple uggles are gigantic and very tasty. Also feasted on the glazed donut holes and sugar twists. Perfect place to find breakfast sweets😀

Surprised to find a full parking lot and line waiting at this small bakery and breakfast spot early on a Saturday morning. After seeing and sampling the food I can see why. We had to try their Apple ugly. One was definitely enough for the two of us and ours was still warm from the oven. though not Gourmet, their... More

We stopped at the Orange Blossom Bakery before climbing Cape Hatteras Light. It was a Saturday morning and I feel like we opened up the place. The crowds sure started pouring in as soon as we ordered. We each got a breakfast sandwich. Mine was on a homemade biscuit and my husband's was on a bagel (I think). We also... More

Went on a Sunday morning and waited online this place was hopping all morning. We had a ugly and my husband who loves apple fritters said it was the best he had in a long time. I had a curler twist that was great also. If in the area it is definitely a must stop at place.

Huge Apple Uglies right out of the cooker--it doesn't get any better than this. Donuts are great as well, and free donut holes for the kids. Friendly staff; always busy for a reason!

There was a line, but it moved quickly. The owner and another employee were friendly and engaging. Coffee was fresh and hot. They even gave our little girls each a donut hole. Nice little treat. Apple Uglies were so delicious! We will visit again!

Orange Blossom is small and crowded and the staff wasn't the friendliest when we were there, but the Apple Ugly was delicious! It is HUGE. 4 of us ate off of it. There is seating, but the ordering area is congested due to the popularity of the place. They are only open 6:30--11 am, so get there early! The donuts... More

If you've never been to Orange Blossom Bakery, you are asking, "What's an apple ugly?" Even if I tried to describe it, I wouldn't be able to do it justice. Suffice it to say you have never seen or tasted anything like it! Additionally, I have sampled the Orange Blossom's egg sandwich on both their homemade bread and on the... More

Person that took our order couldn't quite understand the simplicity of it. Two bagels one with butter, the other cream cheese. Had to repeat it 4 times. Cream cheese was so soft, bland. Definitely not Philadelphia brand There was a place to eat there but decided not too. The parking area has mega holes and is small
