Due to having an open kitchen, we cannot guarantee that cross contamination will not occur. We have a very knowledgeable staff that can assist you when ordering if you have any concerns or questions. Some of our dishes can be modified slightly to accommodate specific needs. If you are gluten free we do require 48 hour notice for any special requests or orders.

May I reserve a seat on the Patio?

All reservations are to hold a table indoors, due to Indiana weather being unpredictable on occasion. When making a reservation, you are welcome to add any requests for specific seats or needs. We take all requests into consideration, however they are not always guaranteed.

You may reserve this space by clicking on the private dining experience on our reservations home page or emailing our event planner Janet Main at janet@thecakebakeshop.com.
