Yum!

Local bakery (on the corner on Broadway - look for teal tiles on upper part of building). Have had their sugar cookies and sweet/cinnamon rolls. Will deliver local area if ordered ahead. Nice to stop in when you need a break and a sweet from shopping.

Wow - this bakery is really old fashioned. It looks like the 60's with good prices and a very friendly staff. It was well stocked and my husband and I couldn't decide what to order because everything looked delicious. The ginger cookies were soft and delicious. I can always tell a good bakery by the taste of the sugar donuts,... More

On a walk through town after the museums and I always stop at bakeries. Had to buy some goodies I had not seen before. Owner was very nice. This place has been in business since 1881 I think.

Great local bakery with good variety. I had chocolate, almond roll that was excellent. Everything looked so good. Nice breakfast stop before exploring shops in town.

The old fashioned doughnuts were amazing! The sugar puff, filled with white buttercream frosting, was just as good. Everything else was very good and the prices were a treat compared to the Twin Cities.

I went in here thinking it was a typical small-town bakery, but the items I bought were poor. The lemon meringue pie as tasteless and the crust was too. The cookies tasted like flour. The sweet rolls looked like store-bought. I expected homestyle cinnamon and Carmel rolls, but they didn't have them. All in all a great disappointment.
