Road trip to the Back in the Day Bakery

We visited Back in the Day Bakery during the week which is about 40 minutes from where I live. The owners, Cheryl and Griff Day are such nice and friendly owners. While I was there, they were having their photos taken with visiting customers. At times the bakery can be busy as Paula Dean (a friend of the owners) has the bakery as one of the stops of a tour.

Recently the owners had a cookbook published and of course I made a purchase and had it autographed by Cheryl. The cookbook is so well designed along with some of the bakery's favorite recipes and wonderful photography.

I love stopping by the bakery since everything about is it so charming along with its vintage style which I adore. I have included some photos of inside along with bakery items.

Inside - couldn't get a good photo, it was busy with patrons

Bourbon Bread Pudding and Cherry Pie Bars - YUM

If you are ever visiting Savannah, make sure you include the bakery in your itinerary.

Here is a glimpse of the cookbook.

I will be sharing some wonderful recipes from this once I make them.  I think first on my list will be banana pudding.

P.S. here are some random pics of homes in Savannah.

Love the door under steps

Steps covered in ivy, so beautiful

Love the vine over door entrance

Gorgeous Iron Gate

Hope you enjoyed, thanks for visiting!  Enjoying the rain storm we are currently having, hopefully it will cool down some.

My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia


  1. What a fabulous bakery that must be to visit! I sure couldn't do it often if I lived there. I never tire of seeing homes in Charleston and peeking in at their gardens.

  2. So much charm in your pictures. That bakery is darling, and it's making me hungry!

  3. I've seen articles about that bakery in magazines. How lucky you are to live so close by and tour the charming city, too! Gorgeous homes!

    I'd buy the cookbook just for the cool retro cover!

  4. What a beautiful place!!! The bakery looks amazing~ well worth the drive.

    Happy monday

  5. Just the way I remember the bakery.Bread pudding looked yummy.
    I loved Savannah long ago and stayed at house just like that. Could be the one.

  6. Savannah is the most beautiful old city! It's one of my favorite places to visit. That bakery is so charming too! I will have to make a note of it so I can visit it next time I'm there. My husband and I have gone a few times and would love to go back again someday.

  7. Love Savannah and need another trip there. I will have to check out that bakery.

  8. What a great picture of you! Love your dress. Are you sitting near the bookshelves that are in the book cover picture? Very cool! It looks like some good, old-fashioned, home cooking and I'll bet it was delicious!
