About Us

Sugar Island is so many things! We’re a bakery with homemade granola, much-loved jam bars, brownies, cakes and pies.

We’re a bookstore and boutique *cue snobby French accent* with locally-made art, jewelry, soap, clothing, and more.


We’re a family of bakers, brewers, readers, chicken farmers, and artists.

Samantha Smith is the head baker and ringmaster of this circus. Her divine pies and layer cakes have been devoured by many a visitor to Topsail Island and featured in many press stories. (Read the press here!)

  • Chocolate Cake
  • Books Galore

Her mother is usually behind the counter helping customers.

Sam and her family enjoy bringing the tastes of North Carolina to visitors and residents of Topsail Island.

There’s nothing like snuggling up on one of the comfy couches in the bakery and enjoying a mug of tea and a scone. Come sit a spell with us.
