Heritage Bakery is a GREAT place to go! Awesome cakes (yummy, creative and beautiful), wonderful quiches and cookies and breads etc. Do not listen to the few negative posts.
Obviously the two negative posts say more about the customer than the business, and not in a good way!
Who calls a bakery during their busiest time and asks them to shop for them?! Really? Being a loyal customer as you claim you know they always have a big ready selection of cakes, so there is never a worry! Who calls a bakery, or any establishment, especially during a busy time, and asks them to SHOP for them?! Of course Sorella's was happy to help, they never have a store full of customers, and huge selection of baked goods, like Heritage does (they do mostly cakes.. and I love Sorella's too!).
I find the lady with the cake for her three-year-old even funnier. Obviously she was more embarrassed than angry. How in the heck would the bakery know the date of the event, the kind of cake AND YOUR PHONE NUMBER if you didn't place an order?!! You did not make an inquiry as you claim, given the obvious evidence as you stated. You placed an order, and didn't have the common courtesy to cancel the order or answer the call? Yea, OK, let's complain now when they call (bet the call was exaggerated as well) ?!
Anyway, I didn't want to make my review about the negative comments but I couldn't help pointing out the obvious.
Heritage has always been a delight to work with and order from. There is always a line and tons of cakes ordered waiting for pickup. The selection is big and tasty. I just picked up yet another beautiful creation by them, and will continue to use them and recommend them. You cannot go wrong!
Heritage Bakery has been our go to for all special occasions. They are very helpful and have always been very patient with my questions. I will recommend them to all of my friends and family!!!!!
Rude Customer Service - Sorella's is much better – I was a loyal customer of Heritage Bakery, as I always try to support local, family-owned businesses. In the past few years I have ordered numerous large and expensive cakes from Heritage Bakery, for occasions such as 1st, 40th, and Sweet Sixteen birthday parties, baptisms, office parties and more. The employees have never been overly pleasant, but were never flat-out rude to me, either. Recently, I needed a small last-minute cake for an intimate birthday gathering. Knowing that Heritage has pre-made cakes available in their cooler; I called the bakery to inquire about the availability and variety of these pre-made cakes. Apparently, asking questions regarding flavor and size was very inconveniencing for the employees. First, while speaking to the male employee, his tone of voice indicated that I was annoying him by asking him to walk from behind the counter and look at the cakes available for purchase. He told me that there were two cakes available in the size for which I was looking. I inquired about the flavor of cake on one of the options, so he put me on hold, and came back with the answer. When I asked for the flavor of cake on the second option, he said in an annoyed tone, “let me check” and came back with the answer. I said I would like to order one of the cakes, so he transferred me to a woman to write down my order. During the 10 seconds it took to transfer me, I changed my mind about which cake I wanted. When I told the woman that I had changed my mind, she dramatically exclaimed to someone in the background, “now she’s changing her mind”! Then she yelled to someone in the background (assuming the same person), “never mind about her, just deliver the cake”! Next, she said to me in a rude tone, “Why don’t you just come in and look so you can pick one out yourself”. I said to her that if I wasn’t working, I would. She said, “Well, someone has to pick it up, they can pick one out”. Then she rudely said to me, “You’re just being so indecisive that you should just come in yourself”. I’m being so indecisive because I asked about the flavors of cake available for purchase, and changed my mind once prior to it being ordered? I told her, “I order so many cakes here; never mind”, and hung up.
I called Sorella’s Bakery in Livonia and they were so friendly and pleasant. She asked how many people I wanted to feed, and took the phone to the cooler so she could tell me every variety she had available in the appropriate size. The cake was beautiful, and the taste was even more delicious than Heritage Bakery’s cakes. My family (who is used to Heritage Bakery cakes) raved about the flavor, and agreed that the cake was far superior to Heritage Bakery’s!
Apparently Heritage Bakery believes that they are so successful, they can afford to treat their customers rudely. Well, sorry Heritage Bakery, but you’re just not good enough to be acting so snobby. If they keep treating their customers this way, they will not have any customers left. Especially when people discover that a bakery just down the road offers friendly and courteous customer service, along with a superior product. Plain and simple, if I am putting money in someone’s pocket, I expect to be treated with a little courtesy and respect. I will never purchase another item from Heritage Bakery. I am, however, very glad that I discovered Sorella’s Bakery. They will definitely have all of my business and referrals from now on.
One of the best in the area – I have never been disappointed with Heritage bakery. Everything they make is delicious but you can't go wrong with their cakes. They are so charming and most importantly, they taste great.
Business Owner Harrasses Customers! STAY AWAY – If you like your cakes frosted with attitude, then I suggest you go here. Otherwise - STAY AWAY! I have never in my life been treated so rudely by ANY business owner in my life. I was shopping around for cake prices for my daughters birthday cake. I stopped in to see what Heritage had to offer - I wanted to put a picture of my daughter on the cake. I was told that my cake would be around $65, and that I would confirm the order when I stopped back in with the picture I was using. Well, turns out, $65 is quite expensive for a 3 year olds birthday cake, as the other bakeries in the area were priced from $20-$40. That being said, I never returned to finish and confirm my order. Fast forward to the day of her party: all our guests have gone home and I have a voicemail from Heritage asking if I was going to come pick up my cake - HUH?! I didn't call back to tell them they baked a mistake! Now, on the Wednesday after her party, I receive another phone call from whom I assume is the owner of the bakery. She proceeds to tell me that I am rude, avoiding her phone calls and she is disgusted that I ordered a cake and never picked it up. Needless to say, I lost it. What kind of business owner harasses potential customers?? I am embarrassed for this business. I would highly recommend Sorella's Bakery in Livonia - the cakes and treats are 100% drama free.
