scrumptious daily baked goods, breakfast was great.I recommend the grits, they are so buttery, with a hint of cheese.

Went here since I was a child and have never been disappointed! The airbrushed cookies are amazing!

Atwood’s is an awesome little place. Their brunch is the best in town. Also, a great place if you have a sweet tooth.

Atwood's bakery has about as much selection as you could ask for from a bakery. Nothing I've had from them has ever been bad, but it hasn't been great either.

Pollock, Louisiana

The food is decent and the treats are good, but having worked here I just can't give a higher rating. The owners don't treat new workers well and fire the new hires if they aren't up to par with the owners impossible standards (one worker was told she had to ice a cake in under a minute), leading to the bakery being understaffed regularly. I was told there would be in house training, which there was not. As a complete amature, I was told I had to increase my speed by 300% or i would be fired. I had managed to increase my speed that much (still with next to no experience) and was still fired for being too slow and inexperienced (they had been told from the start that I had never worked with fondant before and didn't even know what gumpaste was).
