About Goodway Gourmet Bakery

The history of rum cake is as rich and varied as the flavors it embodies. From the Italian shores to the vibrant streets of Puerto Rico, from the rhythmic heart of Jamaica to the commercial brands that have globalized its taste, rum cake has been a dessert of choice for centuries. Yet, amidst this vast ocean of rum-soaked delicacies, stands a beacon of uniqueness and authenticity - Goodway Gourmet Rum Cakes.


For nearly half a century, Goodway Gourmet has been a testament to the art of baking. As a family-owned and operated minority business, our roots run deep, and our commitment to the community is unwavering. A significant portion of our proceeds is channeled directly to uplift youth education and sports in the community, ensuring that our cakes not only satiate the palate but also nourish the soul.


Our journey into the world of rum cakes began 12 years ago. What started as an experiment soon became the heart and soul of our business. The association of rum and rum cakes with Bahamian heritage is undeniable. Our chief baker, a proud Bahamas native, has meticulously crafted each cake, infusing the essence of the Caribbean into every bite. With Goodway Gourmet, you're not just tasting a cake; you're experiencing a legacy.
