I would advise against going there. The cake bites are made with old cake and the employees don t wear gloves while making them. Cakes by the slice are used from the cakes that sat in the case for a week and then put in the freezer for who knows how long. The bread that goes out of date is chopped up and used for garlic toast. Hardly anything is fresh, everything is frozen, even cakes and pastries. Their turnover rate is 104% and that s not including the fired people, only the ones who quit.
I have used Johnnie's for years and have always been happy with them. Unfortunately, I used them for my daughters wedding. We ordered her wedding cake and I went back 3 times to make sure there was no problems. They assured me everything was set and ready. The cake was delivered to the wedding and it was a plain white on white cake with small beading around each level and that was all. All other designs were left off. There was to have lattice work on all 4 layers. Thank God our florist was there to decorate the cake for us at the last minute. When I contacted the owner of Johnnie's on Monday, he was less than sympathetic and stated that the lattice work would not have made that much difference. His solution was a $50.00 reimbursement. I informed him that that was not acceptable, but he stated that was all he was going to do. I strongly encourage others to think before using this bakery. The cake was a very importatant part of the wedding and the owner didn't really think it mattered. I truly feel this baker needed to stand behind his workers and business and when you do not fulfill your end of the bargain the other party should not have to pay for your mistake. I feel that he should have reimbursed us at least half the value of the cake. Buyer beware.
Poor Customer Service – I ordered a birthday cake out of their picture catalog, and was told it would be exactly like the picture. However, when picking up the cake - it was missing a border and the Birthday message was written on the board (not on cake). When we advised them that this wasn’t what we ordered, the staff made numerous excuses. The managers did not address the mistakes first hand but sent their inexperienced staff to handle the situation. It used to be a nice bakery, however it seems to be living on past reputation. The communication with customers was terrible and unprofessional. Caveat Emptor…to the buyer beware. I recommend Ruth's Sweet Justice or Sweet Memories Specialty Bakery if you want things done right the first time.
