I would skip this place. Judy cuts corners in her pies saying she uses Bayfield fruit. Her cherry and blueberry pies are pie filling. Most of her products are not made from scratch, If a customer comes in and asks for something that is not out in the case, she will tell the customer she is sold out, when in... More

The apple and cherry turnovers are FABULOUS. Light, flaky and just delightful. We came back three times. Couldn't carry a pie on our bicycles but they sure looked delicious!

Friday 7/25/14 Purchased 2 pies & 1 cream cheese danish. Danish was delicious! Apple pie was average but bottom crust was something you'd expect from a beginner baker...could have used more baking time. The strawberry rhubarb pie (filling was tasty) was horrible because of raw crust on bottom. Yes, crusts can get a bit soggy with such a wet filling... More

The pies at Judy's Gourmet Garage are very good, but if you are expecting a friendly experience, you won't get it here.

After a long day on Madeline Island I was going to check out Judy's. I checked the store hours in a brochure and found out they had just closed and were to be closed the next day, our last day in the area. My husband told me to call and check their hours, so I did. Judy answered and did... More

Pulled over on a whim on our way home from another great family vacation to the Bayfield area. I am sooooo glad we did! Beautiful pies in the case and being made so we could see the freshness and the massive amount of filling being put into them. There were cookies, which I almost bought until I got an Iris... More

We purchased both the apple pie, and the strawberry rhubarb ..... They sat in our car 24 ours before we remembered our purchase ...... Sill the best... More

I heard about this place a year or so ago and finally made it there. We bought a raspberry-peach pie. I've never had a better pie, as good as the filling is the crust I think is the best part. Judy was as friendly as could be and seems to be a wonderful person. We are having an unusual warm... More

My husband and I bought a few pastries and a pie during one visit here while in Bayfield for a week. They were about average in taste. However, the place wasn't open the rest of the time we were there. The two older women running the place are rather cranky. I'd skip it,

Just got back from Bayfield/Washburn weekend....we picked up a freshly baked apple pie ($11.00) on Saturday afternoon and immediately had two big pieces back at our Washburn, WI campgrounds! Flaky crust...delicious apple ...hint of cinnamon on the crust....it is almost gone!
