The Village Bake Shoppe is one of Lewiston’s gems. Located in the heart of historic Lewiston, NY – the Village Bake Shoppe has been satisfying the sweet tooth of Western New Yorkers since 1993!

They offer a number of delectable desserts that look too good to eat, but taste too good not to!

Here – everything is made from scratch and made with love. For the folks at The Village Bake Shoppe, giving back is truly one of the sweetest parts of owning a business.  They are known in the community for helping whenever they can. When we were hosting a fundraiser for Totally Buffalo’s Hope for the Holidays they were happy to help! They provided the wedding cake for Tony ‘N Tina’s Wedding and helped make the event a huge success!  We couldn’t be more thankful.

We asked Mike Fiore why it’s so important to give back. “We have been blessed with an amazing opportunity with this business. Our success means nothing if we can’t share it with those around us. Our community makes us who we are today.” Mike said, “Without the love and support of the community – we have nothing.”

There’s more. This is a true passion for the Fiore family – “Giving back to the community isn’t just a nice gesture or something you do to make yourself feel good. It’s being obedient and following the plan that God has for our lives. I’m a firm believer in the verse of Luke 12:48: “To whom much is given, much will be required.” He has blessed us with so much, it only makes sense to take what we have and to bless others for His glory.”

I can tell you this – it tasted as amazing as it looks!




They are known for their fabulous desserts – just take a look at some of them!


Obviously they can make anything – including a Buffalo Bills themed wedding cake!!!!


All of their items are made from scratch and they’re always willing to make desserts with any special dietary needs like gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and more!

You just have to check out the Village Bake Shoppe – located at 417 Center Street, Lewiston. Give them a call at 716-754-2300 or visit them at
