This local bakery offers great variety at reasonable prices. My breakfast of wonderful chocolate-frosted cake donut, apple fritter, and coffee totaled $2.50. Everything looked really good, and the big crowd that gathered about 8:30 was a testimonial. There's ample informal seating inside. Our group of eight had room to gather at 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning. I didn't really... More

This longstanding Lawrence bakery is THE place to get doughnuts and other lovely treats. Why on Earth would you go to Dunkin Donuts when you have this gem in town? Now, I'll admit it's in a pretty sketchy-looking strip mall, and the help is... let's just say unusual. But THE DOUGHNUTS ARE SO AWESOME. Go there.

Wonderful bakery gem tucked away in a strip mall on the west side of Lawrence, Kansas. They are famous for their amazing cream cheese donuts. My particular favorite is the strawberry cream cheese donuts - simply to die for!! Many other yummy treats too, including fresh croissants, fritters, cinnamon rolls, etc. Be sure to get there early in the day... More

Munchers has a great selection of baked goods and they are ALWAYS open. If you're in Lawrence, you've got to hit this place up at least once. Just make sure you bring cash, because they don't take credit or debit cards. Some of the great things to try are the cream cheese donuts, mini cinnamon rolls, fritters....probably anything here, really.... More

Our first time here we knew we were in for a delightful treat as EVERYONE we know around here talks about Munchers. We are embarrassed to admit we've lived in Lawrence for three years and haven't tried it yet. There seemed to only be one person behind the counter and she seemed ragged...not sure if this is normally a two... More

Munchers has great bakery-the strawberry twists are fantastic.Inside Munchers needs remodeling, but the sweets are worth it.I don't live in Lawrence so every week I make a trip to buy for my brother,my son and his family and of course my husband and myself.

The best bakery I know! I love their many orange cinnamon rolls, their cream cheese donuts, their strawberry butterflies, everything there is delicious!! Only downside is they do not except debit or credit cards. But there is an ATM machine in the restaurant worth the trip every time.

Open 24 hours, off the beaten path in a run down shopping center but the absolute best baked goods in Lawrence! Old school bakery at old school prices. The absolute best eclairs, stuffed full with custard. Best kept secret!
