Wonderful small town bakery

I needed pastries for a breakfast meeting and found this place. The donuts were so good that I went back after the meeting to pick up some breads before leaving town and heading home. I ended up buying a loaf of sourdough and a loaf of iced banana bread. Both were delicious. They have cakes... read more

Everything is GREAT. If you haven't been, you MUST go. Makes coming to Kentucky from ANYWHERE (Mars included) worthwhile. If you can eat only piece of bread this year, make it a piece of Burke's salt risen bread. And the brownies are worth breaking the law for.

I've been going there since 2000 and have never had anything that wasn't delicious. They always have items that are specially created for the season or holiday.

I always love to stop here and get fresh donuts and brownies. If you stop in the morning, everything is fresh.

Ok so it's straight up bakery when you walk in the door. Not somewhere you want to hang out. That's ok. As soon as you get your donuts, cookies or cake you'll want to go hide somewhere so you can inhale these delightful things without being stared at. They taste JUST like the donuts you'd get at a local bakery... More

Stopped in today, the day before Thanksgiving. Busy, but the line was moving pretty quick. We drove out of our way to stop & get some of their dinner rolls. Great stuff. Also picked up some small cakes & a Danish. You can't go wrong with this place. If you are into bakeries, this is the place for you.

These donuts were incredible! I love donuts and these had to rank among the best I have ever had. It was after 1pm in the afternoon when I wandered in and it was busy. I knew it had to be good because what donut shop is busy in the afternoon?!? I was not disappointed.

We have been to this bakery each summer for the past few years during the Great American Band Festival. The staff is friendly. The Bakery offers a large choice of baked items. One of our favorites is the Cinnamon pull-a-part coffee cake! We also like and highly recommend the homemade pimento spread. Bring cash. Checks and credit cards are not... More
