Reviews for The Futile Bakery

What a great little gem of a place. I am always looking for a great scone and I finally found a great place for that craving! There isn't much to place and when you walk in it is somewhat underwhelming BUT the whole purpose of a bakery is to make great baked goods and that is definitely being done. I grabbed the Blueberry Scone and a coffee and because it was my first time in I also grabbed a salted caramel cookie to go. Starting with the scone it was cooked perfectly and full review

I got there at 8:04 and there were three people in front of me. By 8:11, when it was my turn, they were already out of bacon-pimento cheese scones. If you're only going to make enough of something for three people, maybe don't advertise it as one of the first things on the menu. Amazing cinnamon rolls though.

We haven't even finished sampling what I just took home but I can already say that this is my favorite bakery in Lexington. The cinnamon roll and the honey roll were absolutely unreal. Got there right at opening and they were still warm. WOW. So fresh, so soft, perfect amount of icing. The cold brew coffee is also delicious. Super nice folks as well! We'll absolutely be back!
