A typical Dutch bakery in the middle of Iowa. Reasonably priced and great service. Right on the square and easy to find.

Well this is one of the best bakeries i have been to in the US. Rivals the best bakeries in Germany. Everyone in my group loved everything. What a nice find, people working in the bakery were helpful and friendly. Simply a wonderful find, thank you!

Stopped here because of TripAdvisor reviews. Great bakery. The "letter" is a flaky pastry that tastes like it's filled with almond paste. Yum. Really good. Everything else looks wonderful too.
