The cakes are so dry and mealy! I cannot believe that Atlanta has no better bakeries than this place! For shame!\r

The last time i was in here and saw them drop a block of what looked like butter on the floor and pick it up and add it

The staff here has always been stuck up. I am not sure why they think they are so great...
I've had their cupcakes and other desserts a couple of times. The first time it was okay, nothing spectacular. However, it got worse and worse everytime I went back. The final time was due to rock hard, dry cupcakes. The chocolate and red velvet were both horrible! I hear they have since stopped doing anything but custom cakes, probably so people can't come in and buy a cupcake and realize how awful they are, and they can just be rude to people and rip them off.
I wish you luck if you try them....

Pros: Will majorly lighten heavy wallets with overpriced cake

Cons: Just about everything

.

I completely agree with JJP's Review. I bought 3 different cupcakes today in anticipation of a Baby Shower cake I was planning to order next month (1 - Banana carmel, Yellow w/chocolate BC, and Chocolate w/white BC). 2 out of 3 of the cupcakes where extremely dry and hard as rocks.

I asked the bakery attendent if the cupcake were fresh, and he confirmed they were made the night before. I questioned how they could have been baked the night before, and be so hard. he preceeded to advise me to "pop it into the microwave and that will soften it right up" Who goes to a bakery only to receive a stale product that must be microwaved.

I have not been able to reach the owner Matt, so resoultion is still pending. Not planning on going back any time soon...oops at all!!

I went in to Matty Cakes with high hopes of obtaining an excellent cupcake. Afterall, they have a nice looking sign and the inside looks like a well-run bakery. I ended up ordering a yellow cupcake with white butter cream frosting. I took a first bite and was surprised by the hard/spongy texture of the cake. Surely, there must be something wrong here since cupcakes are supposed to be light and fluffy. Wow... easily the worst dry and stale cupcake I've ever had. And... it was about $3.50 with tax (what a ripoff). Matty Cakes -- you may want to seriously think about removing cupcakes from your offering unless you can guarantee you aren't selling people week-old baked goods. Wow, that was a REALLY, REALLY terrible cupcake.

Pros: They make neat looking cakes

Cons: They can't make a cupcake to save their lives

Matty Cakes definitely knows what they are doing. A bakery should be better than what you get at home or at the grocery store... and they are. The cupcakes are melt-in-your-mouth as well as the cookies.

The selections are smaller, but superb, and yes, I've noticed the staff is a little short and extremely busy.

I went to Maty Cakes for a birthday cake...and what resulted for over 100.00 was shoddy at best. I was told the cake would be fondant..it was not. The quality of the icing was below publix! The ribbon (this was supposed to resemble a present) was left over from chrsitmas and there were drops of hot glue all over the cake and the ribbon. The worst part was that the text was half on the ribbon half on the cake and it lifted therefore the text was disturbed and illegible. When I called to complain Matt basically was unapologetic . they are no Ace of Cakes!

I don't know about the cakes, but the customer service is very poor. I talked to them on the phone about a cake I would need in 72 hours. I made it clear that I was flexible and did not have specific requirements. They just answered "we can't do it. not enough time. bye." I was floored. No apology, no information like "we need one week notice", no offer that maybe they could do something else. If this is how they treat their potential customers, I would stay away.

When I got there, I noticed that this place did not look any way inviting and that should have let me know something. I bought a red velvet cupcake. The frosting is pretty much plain solid cream cheese. The cupcake is reddish orange with a bit of an aftertaste. The bottom of the cupcake was wet. The middle was weird and strayed far from a traditional red velvet cake. The cashier refused to hand my debit card back and instead placed it and my receipts on the counter. When I refused to pick up the receipts, she got smart and told me that they were mine. I will never visit them again and certainly would not recommend them to anyone else.

Since cupcakes are the trendy thing right now, you've probably had quite a few deluxe overpriced ones. The prices here are reasonable for such an indulgent treat. While the cake is poist and flavorful, the frosting is the star of the show. You can feel the clogging of your arteries, but it won't matter. You can also get custom cakes for special events. If you are seeking cupcakes, get there early!

Matty Cakes made the most fantastic and outrageous cake for my husband’s surprise 40th birthday. This was the only bakery in town that would even consider making the cake I wanted and not only was it visually stunning and the talk of the party, but it tasted divine. Everyone was super friendly and Matt had some great ideas. I was so glad I found out about Matty Cakes, it's a hidden gem (but not for long I bet). If you want something extra special, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Matt!

This is the worst bakery in Atlanta!!!! I ordered a birthday cake a week in advance-and when I arrived to pick it up it was not even started. No one seemed bothered by this, not even the owner. They offered me day-old cupcakes instead!!!!! Finally, they ended up frosting another cake (not the flavor I ordered!) for over an hour, while I waited!!!! No one apologized! The worst customer service ever! In the end, the cake tasted horrible! Don't waste your time on this place.

We ordered a cake for a special event and they were very unprofessional. Cake was disguisting - totally inedible, yet they didn't even have the decency to apologize and refund our money. It would be a big mistake to order from them.

Matty Cakes provided both the wedding cake and the groom's cake for my wedding. The wedding cake was red velvet with cream cheese filling and buttercream frosting, and the groom's cake was chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling and frosting. Both cakes were absolutely phenomenal - so rich and so moist. I heard from numerous guests how much they loved the cake, and many said it was the best they had ever had at a wedding. My wife and I can hardly wait until our one-year anniversary, when we will be able to pull the cake top from the freezer. In the meantime, there will be many trips to Matty Cakes to enjoy his cupcakes and other delicacies.

Some of the most beautiful and delicious cakes I've ever seen come out of Matty Cakes Bakery!! I order several cakes a year for various family birthdays or other special events, and I have never had anything but rave reviews - they are always delicious and spectacular. I especially enjoy the Red Velvet and Dark Chocolate cakes, and how they makes some of the works of art that come out the kitchen, I will never know. The cupcakes are huge and delicious as well, with some fun flavors as well as traditional. Matt and his staff have always been friendly, so I am thrilled that this place has opened in my neighborhood. As some have mentioned, there is no seating, it's all take out, and the parking lot isn't huge, but it's well worth a trip (or 2 or 3).

I ordered a "figure" cake of Robin, from Batman, never gave icing flavor, b/c Robin is red & green, instead I got white on white cake, with a chocalate figure of Robin on the cake, then my child's name was not even on the cake, and then when we go to bite into it, it was just AWFUL, it tasted like a sponge would taste, it was just horrible! When I call to complain the 3rd time, he informed me THEN that they do not do "human figure" cakes, which was never mentioned prior, he also said that if someone all someone had to do was tell him to put a name on the cake and he would have, although I gave all of this information to the person who orginally took my order, then finally after so many sorries from him, I told him I wanted atleast half of my money back, he said, if I bring him the cake back, he will give me my money back. So, ofcourse, when I go to the shop, he is not there, and tells the employee to give me half my money back, which at that point, I felt I deserved all of it back for the trouble and you can't get your 4 year old party back! All the kids were very disappointed and upset, it was just a very bad experience, I will definately never use this bakery again! Don't be fooled by the nice pictures on the web site, because it's not what you get!!!

I live right down the street from Matty Cakes, and had been in there when it first opened for a slice of gooey delicious carrot cake. I spread the word around to my co-workers immediately -- there's a new cake shop in town!! Since then, however, on my drive to work, I've rarely seen Matty Cakes as busy as it should be. I'm frequently the only one in the shop, when I stop by for a muffin and coffee in the morning. So, if you haven't tried Matty Cakes -- NOW IS THE TIME! You are missing out on some of the most delectible sweet treats this side of your grandmother's bakery. Try the red velvet cupcakes! Try the pumpkin muffins! Everything is always fresh and oh so good. The coffee is hot and the service is good. I will be buying my birthday cakes from Matty from now on. And so will you!

Rather than going with the traditional wedding cakes I decided to get cupcakes. After trying several bakeries in Atlanta I finally found Matty Cakes. I fell in LOVE!!! The cream cheese frosting on the Carrot and Red Velvet is to die for, and the cake is so moist! We bought all four flavors and set them at each place setting and encouraged guests to share so they could try all flavors. They were sensational and our guests loved the change from the traditional cake.

Literally! I needed the perfect cake for my friend's surprise party and found matty's cakes during a google search for the "best cakes in Atlanta." So I checked out their website and as soon as I saw the images of previously made cakes, I knew that I had found THE place to order the perfect one. The staff is super friendly and the cake was super delicious! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We worked with Matt several months before our pink wedding to design the perfect wedding cake. We had specific detailing in mind, and Matt was able to create exactly what we wanted. Most importantly, the cake was delicious! Many of our guests are still raving about the cake today. Thanks Matt!

Matt of Matty Cakes created my beautiful wedding cake. We selected Matty Cakes because we had read reviews about the delicious red velvet cake and my husband and I wanted a red velvet cake for our wedding. Matt is wonderful to work with (as is his staff ) and he created an amazing wedding cake that was exactly what we had envisioned. Not only was it a work of art, but it tasted scrumptious! My birthday is coming up soon and I already told my husband to order my cake from Matty Cakes. We also really enjoy his sandwiches and cookies. Whether you need a special cake or something to satisfy your hunger and sweet tooth ... stop by Matty Cakes!

I consider myself a red velvet cake connoisseur, and I believe Matty Cakes' red velvet cake is the best I've ever had. The texture is perfectly moist, the taste is superb, and the icing is an excellent complement that brings out the richest flavors. The people at Matty Cakes are very nice and extra friendly. Be sure to tip them, and they may just sing you a song! What a wonderful bakery to visit. It's my favorite in Atlanta.

The double chocolate walnut cookies are to die for! I have tried all of the cookies and they are all soo delicious. The chocolate chip are soft and chewy, just how a great cookie should be. The staff is great on helping you decide on what to get, since everything is so good. I also love the fact that the bakery makes everything from scratch right there, they even roast the meats for the lunch sandwiches. And Matt the owner and Pastry Chef is always working on new items for the menu. Keep up the excellent work, my tummy thanks you!

matty cakes has got to be the best bakery in town hands down. i have tried several cakes from here and each is better than the last. the red velvet, the chocolate cream torte,the coconut cream, have all been fantastic. i didn't even think i liked coconut cake until i tried it from here. the staff has been super friendly and helpful, and matt, the owner, is as cute as he is charming. the kitchen is right up front in the open, so you can see all the action. (you simply have to love a place with a giant orange mixer!) so if delicious cakes are what you're looking for, then search no further than matty cakes. i know i will never buy another cake from anywhere else ever again.

matty cakes has got to be the best bakery in town hands down. i have tried several cakes from here and each is better than the last. the red velvet, the chocolate cream torte,the coconut cream, have all been fantastic. i didn't even think i liked coconut cake until i tried it from here. the staff has been super friendly and helpful, and matt, the owner, is as cute as he is charming. the kitchen is right up front in the open, so you can see all the action. (you simply have to love a place with a giant orange mixer!) so if delicious cakes are what you're looking for, then search no further than matty cakes. i know i will never buy another cake from anywhere else ever again.

Pros: great cakes and sandwiches

Cons: no seating

I am definitely going back for more! Attention to details, an aptitude to deliver on customer's special request(s), passion to exceed customer's expectations, and flavors (omg!) that would satisify the most complicated taste buds. Beg for the red velvet cake and I promise you'll enjoy it! No, I do not know anyone at this store. Visit, buy, relax, close your eyes, and get everything off the fork......yummm.

I have to admit I am a "gourmand" which is a nice way in French to say I love sweets! Matty Cakes is likely going to be the reason I add an extra 30min of cardio a day! I ordered a cake - Red Velvet - from them on a friend's recommendation and I have to say it was the BEST I've ever tried. It looked incredible and was so creatively done, and the cake itself was the perfect balance between light and heavy. The cream-cheese frosting was deliciously sinful, and the frosting on the top & sides was so light & fresh w/out being even close to your typical frosting. Usually I don't eat all the frosting, but I couldn't help myself! Everyone loved it too, often taking 2nd and 3rd servings! I can't wait to go back and try other things - including his even more uniquely designed cakes (he made one like a real b'day present!) and of course the other bakery items. I completely recommend it and the staff was nice and helpful too.

Matt did a cake for our wedding shower this weekend. His design was fantastic. (a chili pepper - perfect for our theme!) And the cake - DELICIOUS! It was red velvet - so moist, with a light frosting and a cream cheese filing. We were so pleased with the cake...our guests were too. We definitely recommend Matty Cakes and look forward to tasting more of his creations.

I just love Matty's chicken salad sandwich ... I always think I'll try another sandwich, but I usually end up with the chicken salad anyway, and I don't usually like walnuts. The pastries I've tried have been equally delicious, from the chocolate chip cookies that usually accompanies my sandwich, or an occasional cupcake or slice of cake, they have all been very tasty. It is a take out place, not really set up for eating in, but if you are there at the right time, you might see a cool custom cake being made. Overall I've been a satisfied customer, I think you will be too.

Stopped by mattycakes the other day and bought a strawberry cupcake with strawberry buttercream frosting. After reading the reviews here, mattycakes must've been having a bad or "off" day. The staff wasn't friendly, just there, and I think they shouldn't refrigerate buttercream frosting cupcakes, maybe have them in a domed display out of the cold temps. The cupcake didn't taste fresh, and the frosting was hard from being cold. I let it warm up a bit, and it tasted worse. I'll give them another try, but only once more. I hope it's better next time and I can clear up this review.

Pros: Great price, could be a cute place to have dessert

Cons: Cupcake tasted stale

The folks there are so friendly and are so helpful, especially with all the hard decisions to make for dessert. I feel like they always lead me in the right direction. The chocolate creme torte is perfect. And so is the coconut creme cake! They are perfect to bring to dinner parties because everyone raves about them. This is where I go when I don't have time to make homemade birthday cakes or treats.

This place has great cakes..the chocolate cream torte is amazing! The chocolate chip cookies are my second favorite. They always smile when I walk in as well, which is nice.

What a remarkable cake Matty made for us! Our son wanted an "elephant cake" for his birthday. We had very high expectations (he's our first child) and were surprised at just how perfect the cake turned out. Its a good thing we got some extra cupcakes, daddy couldn't seem to keep his fingers out of the frosting...

We used Matty Cakes for our wedding cake after checking out many other vendors in the area. Not only were they a great value, but the cake TRULY looked like it belonged in a magazine. Simple, classic and elegant...JUST what we wanted. And our guests raved about how yummy it was.

I HIGHLY recommend Matty Cakes to other brides!

If you like chocolate, I don't know if there is anything better than the chocolate cream torte, it's fantastic, although all the cakes are delicious. I also love the sandwiches, the chicken salad, turkey cranberry and brie, and veggie are my favorites though. A saucer size cookie or decadent brownie are a scrumptious end to the lunch. The owner / chef, Matt, is very friendly and has been more than willing to do special orders when I've needed them - take a look at the specialty cakes on the website, they are gorgeous! I have been one happy customer since matty cakes opened.

The coconut cream cake and the dolce de leche cheesecake were delicious. Loved the industrial decor. It is fun to watch the bakers create their confections in front of my eyes. The sandwiches were creative and tasty too.
