My husband, son, and I stopped here for a sweet treat and none of us was disappointed. Everything was fresh and delicious and the owners were courteous and kind.

This is a small ba,kery which has what you would expect from a bakery an d so much more. I had a Twisted Sister and my daughter had a mini doughnut. She's not a sweet eater. However she loved the jalapeño cheddar bread. There were a lot of other breads which you would not expect to find.

Recent trip to Galena Shopping with a girlfriend and stopped in this small Bakery. We were not hungry since we just had lunch but from all the wonderful bakery smells I had to buy a cinnamon loaf. Took it home and sliced it for french toast- it was WONDEFUL, I think the best I have ever had. The bread was... More

Located at the far end of Main St. is a small bakery. We stopped in there before the stores opened to have a pastry and a cup of coffee. The cinnamon rolls were quite good. We also purchased some cookies which were delicious. The seating is very limited. They also offer a different lunch special each day.

Lots of chicken in the pot pie and the veggies were sliced not cubed. It was the lunch special if the day and included a fruit cup and a cookie. The fruit cup was like I put in my grandson's lunch. I was hoping for fresh fruit! The cookie was yummy. The staff was very friendly and I would go... More

I called ahead to order a birthday cake from this bakery and have it delivered to the hotel we would be staying in in Galena for my sister's surprise 30th birthday weekend. The bakery was lovely and accommodating, the cake was delivered right on time and was absolutely delicious. A pleasure to do business with.

We have been coming to Mary's shop for years now when we visit. She and her husband are very kind to all the children that stop by. My daughter just loves to visit when we come to town on our yearly getaway. Besides the friendliness, the baked goods are some of the best I have tasted. On this trip we... More
