    On our annual visit to PEI our friends and us have always looked forward to a 1st and last night supper meal of Mary's Bakery Chicken, garlic cheese bread and cinnamon buns. We expected price increases of course but WOW they beyond skyrocketed. That would have been a shock but ok for a 2 time treat. However, the quality and quantity we expected was definitely not there. Chicken was no where near as tasty and coating wasn't same at all. Bread was almost 1/2 the regular size and no where near as as cheesy/tasty. And cinnamon buns were very dry without nearly as much cinnamon sugar mixture. Warming in microwave didn't even help. We were told by friends after the business is under new ownership. Either the new owners didn't bother to buy the recipes or choose not to follow them to try and cut corners. And did they ever cut corners. So very disappointed. You can't just buy a business name and location and expect people to keep coming if the food quality isn't there ... that's what drew people and made such loyal customers. All 4 of us felt the same about the meal we had all looked so forward to enjoying. Beyond disappointed and sending a warning to others ... don't spend what we did ... it's throwing away money yes but also what had been a great experience for years.

    We have been visiting this bakery for 8 years, making it a first stop when arriving on the Island to purchase cinnamon rolls. We have purchased three times this year hoping that each time we perhaps just got a bad package but sadly that doesn’t seem to be the case. The new ownership, while friendly, seem to be getting the look if not the size that the previous owner offered, but they have cut way back on the sugar mostly, as well as butter and cinnamon. We simply are eating dough without flavour. It’s very unfortunate for loyal customers but certainly an opportunity for another business to step up and offer the original quality. Certainly hope we can find a similar product as we won’t be back.

    New ownership and unfortunately the quality has gone downhill. The muffins were dated to have been made that same day, but I can’t see how that’s even possible. They were extremely dry and tasted like they came from a bag that you mix with water. The cashier was texting on his phone for our entire interaction. I won’t be returning nor recommending to visitors to PEI. So very unfortunate.

    It appears that the new Indian ownership fired all the bakers and counter staff, replaced them, and are reducing quality of goods of this small PEI locally owned business. Sad for the entire province. I will keep my eye out for other options in Kensington and Summerside. Going forward I will not be purchasing any more goods.

    Mary's Bake Shop in Kensington, PEI is perhaps not the fanciest or the most creative & artistic bakery but for a simple bakery they have the best Cinnamon Rolls, breads, fried chicken and potato wedges you can find anywhere. On our stay on the island we stopped at Mary's for some cinnamon rolls and we got hooked. The cinnamon rolls are awesome although they don't have any icing or frosting on them. The next day we ordered more cinnamon rolls ($2 each), 4 pieces of fried chicken ($8.75), small container of beef barley soup ($6) and small size potato wedges ($4.25) or as they call it, taters! The fried chicken was one of the best we've ever had. The beef barley soup had plenty of veggies and potato and was delicious. The potato wedge were fried on the spot, they were crisp and well seasoned and the portion was plenty for two people and leftover for later. Obviously this place is a favorite of locals as we were waiting for our order we saw people come and pick up loaves of bread and packaged of cookies and other baked goods. Service is friendly and attentive. We'll definitely go back.

    My husband picked up butterscotch buns, biscuits, and a loaf of bread the other day. The butterscotch buns were heavy and hard, the biscuits had a bitter taste, and the bread (sticker says made same day) was so dry I could hardly cut it. Won't be returning.

    Mary's cinnamon rolls are the best on the planet. They are not smothered in icing, or drowned in sugar, they are just delicious flaky pastry and cinnamon... Absolutely perfect. They are really great about letting you bring your own bags too! If you call in advance and tell them what you want and when you'll be there, they will set it aside for you to come pick up in your own container (everything on the shelves is bagged in single-use soft plastic). Before we leave the island, we always stock up on cinnamon rolls for friends and family back in NYC.

    Do you like cinnamon rolls, then come early. We were late and missed them today but we did get a fantastic Coconut Cream Pie. The flaky crust is fantastic. The rolls are very good also.
