My family and I have been getting cakes from the Flour shop for years now and I went in for a taste testing...


Their cakes are the BEST but the owner is not nice at all. She seems to hate what she is doing. Pros: great cakes Cons: not nice to deal with

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/1/2014

They have so many fantastic pastries in here and I feel ashamed on saying that I want them all for myself! I think I am beginning to get addicted to them, I won’t go to the withdrawal phase. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/20/2013

What an amazing place to visit, they have so many great pastries and pies in here that one stop and you may have a bunch of bread for the whole week. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/7/2013

This is the place that I always go if ever I want something fresh and not stale! They have amazing bread and the place looks so wonderful, and the people that work here are friendly. more

Most beautiful wedding cake! 6/4/2012

My family and I have been getting cakes from the Flour shop for years now and I went in for a taste testing... more


My family have been Iris's customers for over 15 years. Many holidays, showers, parties, graduations, and two weddings later ... we are still delighted with the quality of everything offered at Flour Shop. Christmas cakes are special and need to be ordered early. more

Don't use for your wedding cake 1/25/2011

I used them for my wedding cake. I was referred to this shop by a friend and went by for a tasting. The owner was less than friendly and acted as if I was wasting her time. I asked for buttercream icing but got regular powdered sugar icing. The cake looked horrible. I would not recommend for your weddig cake. more

Best bakery in town! 11/16/2010

I've been ordering Chess and Fudge pies for Thanksgiving from Iris for the past 15 years. They are the best!! more

Cake looked great and tasted even better 2/18/2010

I ordered my daughter's b'day cake here and they made it look just like her decorations for the party. Everyone at the party raved about how cute it was and how delicious it tasted. Would definitely use again. Pros: Can make any design on cake Cons: Only take check and cash more

Best bakery ever! 8/25/2009

I absolutely love the Flour Shop Bakery! I and my coworkers celebrate everyone's birthday and we always go out of our way to have Iris' cakes. Its a treat for the birthday person and us alike. I recommend her for every occasion, she is great. Pros: Have never had a bad cake! Cons: not at my house!! more

Best cake in town!! 5/14/2008

This is the best cake I have ever had! I have ordered the white cake with baby booties for 3 or 4 baby showers and every time, people comment on great the cake is! The price is wonderful too! Much better pricing that other shops nearby and 100X's better tasting! You won't be sorry you ordered from here! Pros: Great pricing, EXCELLENT tasting! Cons: Order in advance, she is so popular if you wait, you may not get your cake! more

Best Bakery in Middle Tennessee BAR NONE! 3/14/2008

I have been doing business with Iris for over 12 years...and I have lived in Brentwood, Tennessee, Florida and North Carolina. When I have an event - family, wedding, etc. - in Tennessee (I have relatives all over the Mid-TN area), Iris is the ONLY person I call, even if I have to drive two hours to get her goodies! Her cakes are absolutely delicious and reasonably-priced. And Iris is a true artist. She can copy or make anything! I took her a ladybug napkin for my little granddaughter's 2nd birthday, and she made the most stunning ladybug cake that was exactly like the napkin, which went with the whole ladybug theme. Everyone raved about the beauty of the cake, as well as the delicious taste. She has wonderful fried pies, bar-type cookies, etc. Her mints are exceptional! She and the atmosphere of her shop have always made me feel welcome and at home. Iris and the ladies who work there wait on the customers as well as make the wonderful sweets. I am furious at the negative reviews I read on here because that's not reflective of Iris or her shop. Sometimes a bad review reflects the bad disposition of the reviewer, not the owner or company they are reviewing. If you want a beautiful cake for a birthday, wedding or any special event, go to Iris. You will NOT be disappointed! And don't be surprised if Iris is VERY busy...plan ahead because she is famous for her cakes and you don't want to miss out. Pros: Fantastic Custom-Made Cakes! Delicious Baked Goods! Cons: Parking is ""iffy"", but it's worth circling the area until you find a space. more

best ever 2/18/2008

I have had Iris bake cakes for me before she even opened the Flour Shop. She baked the most beautiful wedding cake for my daughter and everyone committed on the taste and appearance. She is amazing. We also got my grand-daughter's first birthday cake from her and it was amazing. And the mints are to die-for... You will never reqret having her do your event. Highly recommend and will continue having her to all my baking needs. Pros: Everything is wonderful more

The owner, Iris, is just as sweet as her treats! 1/13/2008

That person is the last review must have had a bad day herself! Her statement about the owner couldn't be further from the truth. I met Iris (the owner of the Flour Shop) when she first started out at Huff's Grocery Store in Brentwood 15 (or so) years ago. She is a beautiful person! She works hard to satisfy every client and she would be so hurt by that review. The bottom line with the Flour Shop: It's a family owned and operated bakery. They specialize in old time favorites (like the YUMMY fried pies)! And, speaking from experience, Iris and her crew make FABULOUS wedding cakes--bride's and groom's--and do beautiful catered events as well as make a mean donut :-)! Kudos to the Flour Shop for being a Brentwood landmark and serving the community with class! Pros: Customer service and everything sweet! And the 50's Juke Box! more

Great Cakes - Hateful owner 12/27/2007

Their cakes are the BEST but the owner is not nice at all. She seems to hate what she is doing. Pros: great cakes Cons: not nice to deal with more

Fried Pies to Die For 11/29/2005

The cakes are great, true, but it's the fried pies that will make you lose your mind. Chocolate is the most recommended, but they're all out of this world. All other desserts in there are great too, and the cheese straws are very tasty. However, and I cannot stress this strongly enough, if you don't have a fried pie in there, then you're selling yourself short. Period. Pros: Fried Pies Cons: parking more

Best Birthday Cake EVER 2/5/2004

We just celebrated my daughter's first birthday with a cake from The Flour Shop. I wanted to try someplace new because the last couple of cakes I got from Beckers were dry & just not very good. A friend suggested I visit Iris because of her darling ""first birthday cakes."" I took her my daughter's invitation and she created two amazing replicas (one big, one small) that tasted even better than they looked. I don't care what part of town you live in, a trip to the Flour Shop is well worth it. Make sure you get a fried pie, too. YUMMY! Pros: Taste, Value, Variety more

last rating WRONG! 1/29/2003

I don't know where that tn sunset went--but, it wasn't The Flour Shop! The Flour Shop is a ""hometown"" bakery with fabulous southern charm--the bakers do actually wait on customers and they do a great job with it! The atmosphere is 50s and it's very cute (including a jukebox for the kids to marvel)! I think their speciality is the ""fried pies""--like grandmother used to make--they're just fantastic! They also make, to die for, sweet breads and all kinds of sweet bars (my favorite is key lime coconut). tn sunset was right about one thing--they don't have a wide variety of doughnuts and that's because they have a WIDE variety of the good sweet stuff! Krispy Kreme has the best doughnuts in town and that's where you need to go if you want a doughnut. If you want great cakes and special sweet things, go to The Flour Shop. Pros: warm environment, southern hospitality, good prices more

Not your regular bakery... 11/29/2002

Not your regular bakery...the bakers wait on you. Ho-Hum attitude in service. Sweets in a basket, few donuts, no real specialty sweets. Unattractive ambience. Pros: good flavor, knowledgeable staff Cons: few parking spaces more

Sight and Taste 8/29/2002

The desserts from the Flour Shop are not only a treat for the palate but a feast for the eyes! If you can imagine it, they can bake it! Pros: friendly, value, delicious more
