A Little History
For more than 38 years, Ashley’s Pastry Shop in Oakwood, Ohio has been serving up handcrafted cakes and cookies, donuts and danishes, muffins and pies, and much more. We (owners Greg and Theresa Hammons) opened the doors of this quaint bakery in 1982 to bring delicious treats and amazing memories to Dayton. More than three decades later, and here we are, just as excited to help you celebrate life deliciously as we were the day we opened our doors.
We named our bakery after our first daughter, Ashley. Both of our daughters, Ashley and Lyndsay, worked at the bakery before embarking on their own careers.
Ashley’s Pastry Shop is a bright spot in Oakwood, bringing the community together with made-from-scratch baked goods that satisfy the stomach and touch the soul. Students walk to Ashley’s for lunch, where hot pizza is always available, mothers chat over beautifully-iced cookies, and many families make it a Saturday morning tradition to enjoy a dozen melt-in-your-mouth donuts. This is one of our favorite things about this business—being a part of this community and sharing the journey of life’s special celebrations with all of you.
All About the Customers
Here at Ashley’s, we want our customers to feel welcome from the moment they enter the shop until their last bite is devoured. Customer service is our top priority. You can easily find smiling employees ready to answer any questions, make suggestions, or help with custom orders.
We believe the big and little moments of life should be celebrated with a special treat. Whether that’s a special cookie for a lunchbox surprise or our Challah bread that’s part of a holiday tradition, we are honored to be a part of these moments.
If you don’t see what you’re looking for, Ashley’s can create a custom order just for you. We create custom cakes for every occasion, including wedding cakes, birthday cakes, baby smash cakes, graduation cakes, and more. This is possible because all of Ashley’s products, from the bread, rolls, and pastries to the danishes, cookies, and cakes, are made in-house. We offer gluten-free options, too.
You’ll also find Ashley’s deliciousness served in many restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, and country clubs around the Miami Valley area. But customers don’t have to live in the area to enjoy the goodies. Ashley’s can ship your favorite tasty treats to anywhere you’d like.
Blessed with a strong base of devoted customers, Ashley’s Pastry Shop is dedicated to giving back to our community. Ashley’s is a regular supporter of many local organizations, including the Children’s Medical Center, the Oakwood Rotary, Dayton Public Radio, The Muse Machine, Catholic Social Services, Dayton History, Dayton Junior League, Red Cross, Ronald McDonald House, St. Vincent’s Shelter, DayBreak, Dayton Arts and Theatre organizations, and many local schools and hospitals.
Thank you for choosing Ashley’s, where details make the difference.
