This is one of the most fantastic bakeries. The ever changing specialty rolls are creative and seasonally fresh. The staff is always kind and helpful. Most amazing quality.

The BEST cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had. Ever. And the Instagram account is wonderful. I always make a point to go at least twice when I’m in Lexington!

By far the best cinnamon rolls in town. You MUST try their bacon & pimento cheese scones, holy moly they are spectacular. Daniel & his team are so creative and always coming up with new twists on classic staples. 10/10 recommend everything on the menu!I also participated in a take & bake cinnamon roll workshop with my girlfriends and had the best time! Highly recommend the take & bake and also workshops! Daniel is SO easy to work with!

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 slightly different than most scones I have had. It was full of flavor, not dry and shaped differently than the typical triangle being a square as pictured! The Salted Caramel cookie wasn't eaten until much later in the day and it kept wonderfully and was incredible tasting with an awesome blend of flavors. This place is fantastic and it will become a new place in my rotation.

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.

Such kind folks at Futile! I see why they sell out! I enjoyed a cinnamon roll & chocolate chip cookie from this bakery & was pleased. Highly recommend a visit here!

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!

Hands down best cookies ever! We ordered a cinnamon roll, oatmeal pie cookie and one of their special blackberry jam doozy cookies. All were delicious and they also gave us an extra salted caramel chocolate cookie. This is one of the best bakeries I’ve been to and I’ll be coming again when I’m back in Lexington!

Great baked goods - the strawberry roll was incredible! They even gave me a free cookie for my first visit. The owners were also very fun conversation- definitely worth a stop!

I went two days in a row and loved it. The first day I went was closer to closing to time. The cinnamon rolls were still good, it’s just that they leave their pastries on a rack so eventually they dry a little throughout the day. But I went early in the morning again, and their pastries were warm and fresh. Courteous staff!!:) Recommend going closer to 8:30 after the initial rush.

These cinnamon rolls are NEXT LEVEL! We came from out of town and I did a little research and this was the overwhelming recommendation. All of these people were spot on! The clerk was so friendly and helpful. Will be coming back every chance I get. 10/10
