This place has a very nice ambience. Most ladies will like this venue. The cake is excellent and the coffee is pretty good.

If you are a cake lover, try Maxie B's. Home style baked cakes, paired with yummy buttercream frosting. Sold by the slice or by the cake. Try the carrot cake. Sheer perfection. A perfect balance of spice and sweet. Cake slices are around $5 ea.

We have been patronizing Maxie's for over 20yrs. And have loved being a part of their evolution. Maxie's B's does right every time. The crowds prove it. Everything tastes homemade. There is not any bucket lard icing here!!!! They have a HUGE selection. Everything is fresh & delicious. Pure & Simple. It's like having our own personal Southern Grandma baking... More

If you're in need of a beautiful wedding cake, unique birthday cake/cupcakes, or any other sweet tooth dessert, this is the place for you. They even offer pupcakes for your dog. :) I love the winter special - Black Forest Cake, and the spring and summer specials with berries (any and all). A must-try for Greensboro natives and visitors alike!

Very cute place! Nice atmosphere where you can sit in comfort and enjoy your treats. Very rich pastries, cupcakes, etc., the sugar hits you in the face when you walk in the door.

Our family of four picked up individual cake slices to sample together. This stop at Maxie B's helped put the finishing touches on a weekend visit to our college student. We tried the Carrot Cake (18 Carat), Hummingbird Cake, German Chocolate Cake and Plain Birthday Cake. We arrived on Sunday at ten minutes to opening at 1:00 and sat in... More

Maxi-B's has quite the following and can be very crowded. While the cakes are very good, I don't get why people choose to wait 30 minutes or more. Prices are expensive, and beware if you order a custom cake. I know several people who ordered cakes for birthday parties and baby showers, and the cakes were dry. One friend was... More

Maxie B bakery is a charming little cake and dessert shop! Everything is delicious! I love that you can buy the cake in slices; everyone in the family gets a slice of their favorite. There are many flavors to choose from. The cakes are moist and oh so yummy. The portions are generous, of course you could eat it all... More

Cake heaven!!! This place has soooooo many flavors. I came here by myself and had to buy 3 slices - mind you these are large slices. I got the birthday cake (my favorite), strawberry (refreshing), devils food cake (very rich but little bit too sweet for me). I wanted to try everything here. So freaking good!

Let me count the cakes! I have never seen that many delicious looking cakes in one place in my life! It was extremely difficult to choose one cake over all the others! I chose chocolate cake with cream cheese icing! It was wonderful! If I stayed in Greensboro for any length of time, I would have to try all of... More
