I don't exactly remember the last time I was here, but it had been recommended. Of course they were out of the goodies I came in for, but what I did buy was yummy. Too bad too many places get closed before they really get a chance to get off the ground.

I liked the eclairs, they were very good. they had a good selection when I was in there. they had some very good cookies that I really liked, too. there was so much good stuff in there, I had to restrain myself, or they would have had to roll me out of there.

Delicious baked goods. Very friendly. Small bakery but very much worth your time to stop. I especially loved the unique doughnuts with different cereal toppings for kids.

The only problem we found at this bakery was not enough of all their products was available. The only thing they had left was donuts and we would have liked to tried more items. The donuts were just great and freshly made. Hope I can grab some cream horns next time.

We tried a few donuts all very good. The glazed cinnamon twists were amazing! I also liked their custard filled and long johns. There was a constant stream of customers for a weekend morning.

We started our family vacation in Hannibal. I have a daughter with Celiac's disease, which means she can't ingest gluten. I knew that she likes gluten-free pastries and cakes, so I researched bakeries and found this one. I contacted the owner and told her my problem. She'd never baked gluten-free, but told me she'd find a recipe and have something... More

The bakery is small but very friendly. As you walk in the front door there is a small area for coffee and donuts. As you pass through a doorway and into the main area there is a small sitting area and more special made donuts at the counter. These two young ladies have been friends and wanted to open a... More
