Don't go to the Woodlea Bakery in Bel Air near closing time....my cousin wanted to surprise me on a Sunday when she was coming to visit with goodies from Woodlea. Not aware of the closing time, she arrived about 1:58PM & there were several customers in the bakery. Upon coming into the store, the clerks told her they were closed & would not wait on her - she responded that other people were in the store being waited on, but they would not budge - I will never go to the bakery again although I love their stuff - bad business sense in this day and age.

The Red Velvet Cake is DELICIOUS!!!!!!!! The cake is moist and the icing is buttery. The best I've tasted.

I purchased a cake for an employee retiring with 41 1/2 years with company. I thought I made a mistake with requesting chocolate icing with colorful flowers displayed. This was certainly no mistake. The cake display was absolutely beautiful and the cake itself was delicious. Everyone praised the cake and wanted to know where I purchased it. Kudos to Woodlea's.

extremely popular for their delicious marshmallow filled donuts among many other items. they have several pans full of marshmallow donuts in the morning but they quickly fly out of there so i would absoutly recommend going in and trying them out but get there early!

The new Woodlea Bakery located in Bel Air is equally as fantastic as the Woodlea Bakery located on Bel Air Road. Of course they are run by the same family who have been doing friendly buisness for years. I have never heard any legitamite complaints about the costumer service there. If you are looking for a wedding cake, this is the place to go! There cakes are not only delicious but beautiful and from experience I know that they are friendly and easy to order from. They are famous for their cakes and of course their peach cake, which recently landed them a spot on the top 100 foods to try in Baltimore as number 28, I believe. There dinner rolls are also to die for. I would venture to say that this is the best bakery in Baltimore, and any one who gives this place a bad review honestly has no taste.

Have never been to the original Woodlea Bakery downtown but have heard it's wonderful, so I was excited to see one open in Bel Air. Tried them out for dinner rolls and a scone first. Dinner rolls were nothing special and the scone was just okay (too cakey and needed more baking powder). Have a family birthday coming up so I returned for a boston cream cake and also picked up a pecan tart, fruit tart, and a cupcake for my daughter. Eagerly sampled the cupcake figuring it would be indicative of their cakes, and was disappointed. The cake was just average. The icing was better than grocery store icing but I was not blown away by any means. The fruit tart filling was fine, the icing on that particularly good, but the dough was very blah and not at all pastry-like. The pecan tart was simply okay. Haven't had the cake yet. Far better pastries and scones at Patisserie Lucie in Havre de Grace (if she's still open - it's been awhile), although her cakes too are lackluster. Hate to give this review to a brand new business (in the Bel Air location anyway), but it is what it is unfortunately. There really don't seem to be any truly good bakeries anymore. I always come away thinking I can do better at home with a decent recipe. Beats Bel Air Bakery and the local grocery stores but that's not such a difficult feat.

I went today on a Saturday ONLY because a parking space opened up right in front of the store...It is always packed there when I drive by and I have been dying to go in since I luv donuts!!
Anyway, I stopped in and the service was friendly I ordered glazed and a raisin bear claw. mmmm....good! The donuts could have been displayed nicer, but all of the other treats were displayed perfectly. I hear their strawberry shortcake is awesome, so I will try that next time. Anyway, the prices were reasonable. My donuts were a little on the heavy side, meaning a little doughy, greasy, but fine. They seem to have sooo many desserts I feel they should reduce the price a bit to sell more items, less waste. All in all, a good experience and I will go back again.

Excellent pastries, pies, and cakes. Never tasted anything so good! The service was a pleasant experience on my first visit. I highly recommend them to anyone who likes homemade food, which is good for the soul. When visiting Woodlea's Bakery during special occasions or holidays, I recommend you place your order days ahead of time to beat the rush so that you will not have to stay in a long line to get your treats. You will be back no matter how long you wait guaranteed.

I am a displaced midwesterner now, but was born and raised in Balto. One of the things I miss most about home is the REAL bakeries you have. These people out here actually think that supermarkets have real pastries, and Krispy Cremes are a joke! But, then, they do not have the Woodlea to compare it with. Since you don't have an email address I assume you do not mail your products out. I guess I'll have to come home to get the good stuff.

Went to order a cake for an anniversary party. The guy we talked to Charles DID NOT want our business. I was told to come in at quarter of the hour and we did just that. We even picked out a cake. However, he had NO Samples!! When we were getting ready to take his offer, he informs us, that we would have to make an appointment to order the cake... are you kidding me???
So we went to the NEW Bakery in town... YIA YIA's located on Philadelphia Road across from Pizza Hut!!! Oh my what a place!!! EXCELLENT customer service!!! See fo yourself!! Woodleas used to be our bakery, not anymore!!!

Woodlea bakery is a fantastic little bakery in an otherwise unremarkable stretch of stores. It is a family-owned business and has been around for years. They have a variety of fresh baked goods daily, and the prices are very reasonable. My favorites are the chocolate chip cookies. Also, if you are looking to buy a cake, this is the place to go!

Venture down Belar Road in the city and check out the Woodlea Bakery, bt be prepared to wait because everyone else has that idea too. The peach cake and strawberry shortcakes are the best and may sell out. They also make great breats and rolls and of course wedding cakes!!

Forget Krispy Kreme if you want some great doughnuts and other baked goods. Woodlea offers a great variety of pastries and they all taste excellent. The food is fresh and always satisfying. If you are looking for a sweet treat, definitely check them out before you head to Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts.
