The last bakery only made it 14 months.I was told by one of the last owners that the old equipment{ovens,mixer,fridge,e tc.}simply used too much energy.On top of that,the bakery has to compete with Food City,Walmart,Kroger and Piggly Wiggly for a share of the cake and cookie business in Roane county.If this bakery makes it 14 months,I will be surprised.

well the other one would have been still in business if they wasnt so high on everything and krogers donuts was alot better than theirs and cream horns at walmart and foodcity was lots better in package,and cookie was ok but i would rather had krogers chocolate chips or yhe ones in dairy you bake your self,just very high and i dont mind paying extra but not when it isnt as good as something from walmart pre-packaged,but i hope them luck and hope its better than the other ones

I for one wish them the best of luck. I remember when I was a child how much I loved going to Merri Mac. I took both of my daughters there daily until they closed. I took them to the one that just closed & I will take them to the one that has just opened. I think the people of Roane County should take pride in supporting family owned businesses.

i didnt know we had a new bakery. where is it? i made the mistake last year of going to gibson girls in kingston for the cake for my daughter's first birthday party. they ruined the cake and when i asked for a refund the man working there got a big attitude with me. very horrible service. i would definately recommend going anywhere else. my daughter ended up with a cake we grabbed last minute from walmart.

I too have very fond memories of meri mac and its my understanding the new owners use the same original recipes. my son and I stopped yesterday for an after school treat, after my excitment about it being back open was somewhat contained, to get my all time favorite tea cookies. The people of Harriman have a responsiblity to support this new business. This is the only way to rebuild our downtown. Its icing on the cake (pun intenteded) that their goodies are the best in roane county. I understand they will be having lunch specials as well which expands our now limited choice. My daily afternnon sweet craving can now be satisfied with their awesome cannoli and tea cookies!!!
Best wishes to the Amazing Baker!!!

Why is it the responsiblity of the people of Harriman to support this bakery?I spend my money as I chose.I have found that Food City in Harriman is hard to beat.Good cakes,good cookies,great prices.

It is off Highway 27 Roane Street. Turn right on Queen Street beside Reno's Sporting Goods & you will see it on the right side of the road. If you go to the stop sign you have gone to far.

A woman I know ask the older gentleman at the "new" bakery if they would make a birthday cake for her.He told her they couldn't do a birthday cake because they didn't have a cake decorator!Who opens a bakery without a decorator? Thats like opening a car repair garage and not having a mechanic! The older gentleman also told my friend that they were new to running a bakery. What an understatement.

I have tried the new bakery and it is AMAZING as the name says. the tea cookies are just as i remember as a kid. I for one will go as much as I can and encourage everyone to at least try them. They also have reasonable lunch specials. as residents, we should keep our business in town as much as possible. It would be nice to live where there is a downtown. Skynyrd, you are so negative about everything, maybe you should go get a cookie to help those ulcers you must have.
