If you've been to a birthday party, or party of any sort anywhere in western Burlington County, NJ, chances are very good that you've had baked goods from L & M Bakery. Their variety of cakes is terrific, from traditional birthday cakes with buttercream icing, delectible strawberry shortcakes, carrot cakes with raisins and walnuts, to the unusual (but equally delicious) butter cakes. They have everything you could possibly want from a bakery: breads, rolls, cakes, cookies, donuts, danish, pies, tarts, sticky buns...and the list goes on. I even got my wedding cake from L & M. \r
There is a line out the door in the early morning as people stop to get their morning pastry and coffee before rushing off to work, so it is adviseable to avoid the morning rush, but don't worry about the shelves being bare. They have an efficient staff that keeps lines moving and stocks shelves quickly. \r
I recently stopped in to order my daughter's birthday cake and noticed a small pumpkin tart that I couldn't resist. It was so tasty, with a perfectly flaky, homemade style crust and just the right amount of spices that I've decided to order them for Thanksgiving dessert, instead of big pies that usually don't get all eaten by my family. These little mini-pies are sure to be a treat to top off the Thanksgiving meal. And any holiday orders can be placed and paid for in advance so all you have to do is pick up your order. \r
So if you are in the area and have never tried L & M Bakery, I highly recommend that you stop in and indulge in the sweeter side of life!!
Pros: Most excellent baked good ever!
Cons: Parking can be troublesome, but there is a small lot in the back.
