The best

Family owned. Some of the best donuts and pastries in the USA. I stop on an average of 3-4 times per month. I have never had a bad donut.

I have lived here and gone to this bakery most of my life. I always check out other Bakeries whenever we travel and none have even came close to being as good as Linne's Pastry Shop. The one thing people miss when they move from Shelbyville is Linne's. They have amazing pastries.

Conveniently located just a couple of miles off I74 and in the heart of downtown Shelbyville, Linne's Pastry Shop offers what may be the single best donut in the world. I am on a search for the greatest donut in the world. I avoid national chains in favor of local shops. While every palate is different, for me Linne's "cake... More

Not those mass produced pastries like they have in Starbucks but hand made everyday donuts and pastries. On street parking is everywhere and a cool... More

I have never had anything at Linne's that was not OUTSTANDING! Any of their donuts, made fresh daily, will melt in your mouth. If you can't make it for breakfast go in for LUNCH. They have an excellent lunch menu with specials offered everyday. Fresh salads, hot and cold sandwiches and then they add a fresh baked brownie finger or... More

This lil bakery is great for donuts and cookies, as well as soup & sandwich lunches. The cakes I've had from there were decorated well, but the cake itself was very dry. Still a great pastry stop!

Their donuts are some of the best on earth! My family goes there every once in a while because they are so delicious! My family is a little more healthy but when I hear the words 'donuts for breakfast' then I know where we are going. You need to get there early to get your favorites though! The best are... More

A local bakery icon, we stop in here frequently, for donuts or pastries and coffee. Recently ordered coffee cakes for a breakfast meeting - delicious. We always order dinner rolls here for special family gatherings and they have made some special birthday cakes for us as well. They also have good sandwiches for lunch.

This is a great local donut shop that has been around for a long time, and it's because they are doing something right. They have excellent thumbprint cookies, which are my favorite item they sell. I also really like the cake donuts. They have all kinds of donuts, cookies, cakes, breads, and more. They have a cute little seating area,... More

its such a cute quaint place to eat especially for lunch. ambiance is great surrounded by fresh breads and pastries. Sadly the staff always seem like they are so ready to go home! They no doubt have to be in there so early to bake they look exhausted and therefore are not so thrilled to serve. Wish that was different... More
