Disappointing

I hate to add a thumbs sideways to this place because I really value neighborhood businesses, especially bakeries. This place is spacious, kid-friendly and seems to draw regular local traffic. But after two visits (first one with a Groupon that, when we went, was only good for a few types of... read more

I was craving some quality donuts and figured I'd try one of the few places that was open at 2pm on a Monday. Glad I did! Chocolate cake donuts are perfect, crispy outside and soft inside with the classic sugary chocolate frosting. I also had a custard filled Long John covered in chocolate. That was great as well! There's a... More

They have been on that corner for what seems like forever and have a great following. We have often gotten donuts and pastries there when we were visiting friends in the area. I would certainly recommend stopping. We have never ever been disappointed in what we have gotten.

On my way to the Highland's Festival in St. Paul, I passed this place and thought "mmmmm Bakery, too bad it is on the opposite side of the parkway, will have to stop on the way back".So after the festival,I walked in one of the many doors at this place. I noticed huge sized pieces of several bakery sweets. I... More

The glazed raised donuts are their main seller, and they are the BEST in the Twin Cities. If you take them home and heat on in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, they are just as good, if not better, than Krispy Kreme. They also have killer apple fritters, with the perfect crispiness and generous coating of their glaze. They have... More

There was one type of greasy donut (in a variety of colors). Didnt even purchase one. Plus super inattentive service.

I haven't ever given a terrible review before, but this one deserves it. My cookie tasted old, the worst was my husband's had a hair baked into his! Apparently, boys aren't as grossed out by this, but I found it disgusting. On a little better note, we did buy our dogs homemade dog treats which they loved.

We passed this bakery last fall while biking/running down Minnehaha. When we finished our workout at Lake Calhoun, we both said, "did you smell that donut shop back by the falls?" And so we returned just before leaving on a roadtrip to Duluth. We had a couple of items. The cinnamon sugar donuts were right out of the fryer. So... More

Great location, but skip it! Go to A Baker's Wife instead.
