Handmade Specialty Baked Goods

Always Fresh.  Always from Scratch.
Downtown Akron is where it's AT!
Yes, that's right! Your favorite hometown baker has a retail bakery, right in the heart of downtown Akron!  Sweet Mary's Bakery is conveniently located at 76 East Mill Street on the first floor of Greystone Hall, directly across from the John S. Knight Convention Center! Our walk-in shop features a variety of baked goods - not just cake! From fresh baked quiche and scones to pies, cookies, granola (and of course, cake!) we'll have what you're craving. We also feature a seasonally changing menu of savory baked items for breakfast and lunch, such as buttermilk biscuits, handpies, and Sammiches (it's too good to just be a sandwich).  Stop by to see what we're cookin' up!

All items are made just like we've always ma
de them: fresh daily, from scratch, by hand and with plenty of love. Our menu will be limited but growing as we work through staff training and getting the kinks out, so please bear with us!  Our hours are 7am-2pm Monday-Friday, 8am-2pm Saturday.

  Please allow at least 2 days for all special orders, to ensure we are able to make them fresh for you. We can't wait to see you downtown!
