Your Favorite Aunts Kitchen

We stopped for fuel and accidently discovered a gem. Okay the atmosphere leaves something to be desired but the food does not. Stop here if you want homemade. The bakery is amazing, one breakfast pastry is plenty for two, maybe three people. The food is always good. So forget the atmosphere... read more

My family and I always stop here to get some of the bakery goods and boy do we love it. The cinnamon rolls they are are massive, and the other backers goods are just things to die for. They sell them for a great price and we have no problem being helped right when we walk in. The staff is... More

The display case holds many oversized pastry items that are reasonablly priced and delicious. The... More

Have been here many times without disappointment! We live close and often stop on the weekends. While it's busy, we always find a seat pretty quickly. The service is fast and efficient and the food is much better than you would expect from a "truck stop". The bakery items are displayed nicely and offer variety--not a huge fan of their... More

The cinnamon rolls are huge. I LOVE their bakery as you enter the restaurant. You just must have some in the restaurant AND take some home!
