Olive’s Apron Bakery & Tea Shop Bakery • $$

Customers` Favorites


“We are so glad to have Olive’s Apron in our neighborhood! I love walking down to the shop and hanging out in the “couch room” with my kids. It is so cozy and cute with plenty of unique games for the little ones to enjoy. I have always felt welcomed. Also the smell when you walk through the door is divine! We have been big fans of the biscuits and various treats for awhile, but have not visited as much recently due to some dietary restrictions for our family. I contacted them about creating two custom dye-free birthday sets for my children and they were so wonderful to work with! Ashley sourced natural dyes for our order per my recommendations as it is not something they keep on hand and charged me only an extra $5 to do so. The cakes came out beautiful, more vibrant than expected, and were so delicious! They were perfect and we had two very happy birthday kids! Thank you so much Ashley, Peggy, and the rest of the Olive’s Apron team. We appreciate you!“

I would say if you have little ones that require a high chair, this would not be the place to dine in. Also there was no changing table in the bathroom.We tried 4 different crepes, all of them incredibly beautiful, as well as a hot chocolate ❤️We tried a white mocha and a Spanish latte. If you like strong coffee you will love the coffee.I noticed a Turkish coffee option on the menu. They have frappes and shakes.They carry macarons from La Petite Delicat. If they had high chairs I would have given another star for atmosphere.Overall we are so glad we stopped.

Kid-friendliness: No high chairs or changing tables.“

Personally, I can't get enough of the turtle, maple pecan, French toast, and bourbon varieties, but honestly, you can't go wrong with any choice on the menu.With adequate seating and reasonable prices, especially when indulging in a dozen, Parlor Doughnuts is a must-visit destination in Lexington. So, whether you're a local or just passing through, make sure to add Parlor Doughnuts to your itinerary - you won't regret it!

Delicious!And they do have other drinks available, but as I don't drink coffee, their Hot Chocolate is perfect for me!If you're in the area, with some time to kill, check them out.

“When you first walk in, it feels like a comfortable coffee shop. As my teenagers say "It passes the vibe check". Emma was super friendly, and made a point of introducing herself. Great cup of coffee.Now the REAL magic happened when I walked in about 6 weeks later. Emma said "What's up Yemi?"I was a bit blown away, as she'd met me just ONCE, and recalled my name right off the bat.The atmosphere is friendly, inviting, and just feels like a hug...and not the weak "butterfly pat" hugs which are common among acquaintances. I'm talking the kind of hug among FRIENDS.The friendliness and genuine love which radiate from Emma, Bailee, and (owner) Sal make this THE place to get a hazelnut lavender latte (my usual) and step out of downtown and into the perfect exhale.Come here. Often.“

All the staff are really friendly, Nick is always super peppy and super nice, idk know her name but the one with the curly hair is really sweet, when they didn't have enough Malasada donuts (which are very good) she apologized and she very clearly looked distraught as if we were going to be upset even though we were definitely not. Overall everyone's very kind and willing to give recs and answer whatever questions you may have. The hot cups are really nice and don't use cup sleeves reducing the waste they use which i can get behind. Can't get much better than here.“

The food was indeed delicious but very different from what we ordered. But I would def still go back for the drinks alone. I got the Iced Chocolate Coffee and it was amazing. They were also super accommodating and gave us a free pancake because they were out of something else, if you go later in the day I think it’d definitely be worth a try“
