About Ashley’s Pastry Shop

Our Story

For over 40 years, Ashley’s Pastry Shop has been serving up handcrafted cakes and cookies, donuts and danishes, muffins and pies, and much more. We opened the doors of our quaint bakery in 1982 to bring delicious treats and amazing memories to Dayton. Here we are, more than four decades later, just as excited to help you celebrate life as we were the day we began. 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 brings the Dayton community together with fresh baked goods that satisfy the stomach and touch the soul. Students walk to Ashley’s for hot pizza slices, mothers chat over beautifully iced cookies, and local families make it a Saturday morning tradition to enjoy our fresh melt-in-your-mouth donuts. Being an established part of our Oakwood community is one of our favorite things about this business.

You’ll also find Ashley’s deliciousness served in many restaurants, coffee shops, hospitals, and country clubs around the Miami Valley area. But don’t worry; you don’t have to live in the Dayton area to enjoy our goodies. We can ship your favorite tasty treats anywhere you’d like!

Thank you for choosing Ashley’s, where details make the difference.

Here at Ashley’s, we want you to feel welcome from the moment you enter the shop until you devour your last bite.

Customer service is our top priority. Our smiling team is ready to go above and beyond to answer questions, make suggestions, and help with custom orders.
We believe the big and little moments of life should be celebrated with a sweet treat. Whether you need a cake for a special occasion, a box of donuts for Saturday morning, or dinner rolls for Thanksgiving, we are honored to be a part of the big and small 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.
We accept payment via cash, check, Venmo, or PayPal. However, we do not accept credit card payment, so please plan accordingly.
We believe everyone deserves a little sweetness in their day, and we’re proud to offer a variety of gluten-free baked goods.
