I have been a regular patron of Mrs. Maxwell s Bakery since 1990. They have supplied my cakes for nearly all of my events. I have moved away, came back and will continue to get my cakes from there. I am in NY but live an hour and a half from the bakery and will continue to be a loyal customer. The cakes are the same quality as they were over twenty years ago! They have made improvements which include ample parking, an efficient pick up and check-out system and courteous service. Keep up the good work!
My wife and I have been back in Brooklyn after living upstate for the past 15 years. My wife is a cake addict, and the bakery we went to before we left the city is no longer in business. Someone recommended Maxwell's, so we decided to check it out. The first thing we noticed as we walked in was the huge slices of butter creme cake in the case for only $1.50. What!? They have to be old, right? We took a couple home and wow! The cake was moist and light. Not like the cakes from the West Indian bakeries that are springing up in Brooklyn. A lot of their cakes have more of a coarse texture, a little like cornbread. We liked the Maxwell's cake better. The frosting was not too sweet. We were very impressed, and plan to order a decorated cake this weekend.
I went to Maxwell's bakery last week with my boyfriend to consider a baby shower cake. They do not have a lot of options nor do they do enough different designs. Also, if you are pregnant I would advise you to not bother coming in. The manager would not let me got to the bathroom, I'm 8 months prego and she still told me no. I will never ever come back here. I'm trying to purchase a cake and I cant even use the bathroom!!!!! Unsatisfactory to a customer.
Since 1962 besides Carvel's and White Castle on Atlantic and Highland Place Mrs. Maxwell Bakery was the place to go to get Sweet Potato Pie, Cheese Danish, Decorations and personal cakes. It was to thrill and go in and be greeted by Morris Cohen on those days. Hey, the bread wasn't bad either. I know that Mrs. Maxwell's played a part in many of the lives on East New York. I do miss it now that I live in PA/
Allow me to add my two cents worth of advice. If you live anywhere in the Brooklyn area make it your business to stop here and sample everything. I am 53 years old and have been going to Mrs. Maxwells since I was a child. I now live in Florida and there is no, NO bakery that compares. The cakes are wonderful and the owners are the very best people. Have a taste of the Chocolate Seven Layer cakes, My Absolute Favorite.
