My wife wanted to drive up from Rhinelander to get a few items that she knew they had. As we entered the store my wife suggested that we eat lunch there. I agreed. The sandwich on special was the Kinda like Thanksgiving Dinner sandwich. Its turkey topped with provolone cheese, cranberry jelly and then lightly grilled on Cranberry Walnut bread.... More

I love the Flour Sack for lunch when I'm in the Northwoods! They have a very nice little restaurant in the back of the store. I have to have the "Kinda like Thanksgiving Dinner" sandwich, it's great! but so is everything on the menu and don't miss out of the soup of the day! The staff is great, very friendly... More

Wow do not waste your time with this company. I honestly believe the reviewers that are giving it a high rating must be fake. I went to order flour from this company. I selected my product, and selected the shipping option online which stated $14.95 for shipping which seemed high but i was fine with. I placed my order, got... More

My teen-age son, mother-in-law, aunt, and I had lunch in the cafe in the back of the store during the week of the 4th of July. I had a salad, which was made from quality mixed greens (no iceberg lettuce) and it came with my choice of a muffin. Everyone in our party loved the food--even my 18 y/o son.... More

If you like to bake or buy in bulk, this store cum restaurant is a good place to visit. The menu is not huge but it is a good place to meet up with your girlfriends or grab a quick bite. The store has a ton of baking supplies, dip mixes, candy, cheese and frozen pastries as well as healthy... More

HUGE inventory of spices, flours, etc for baking. A lot of items that I don't normally see when I'm shopping for supplies. I'll definitely be heading to their website for the holidays to pick up some one of a kind items and cookie decorations.

Try this place for a quick lunch, but it is a store also, so be prepared to load up on the frozen scones and other goodies. The cranberry and blueberry ones are a hit with my family. This is one of the few places where I can find different flours and rices as well and they are packaged in reasonable... More

They have RYE FLOUR! That is nearly impossible to get! And they have a lot of other great things for baking! Stop in and take a look! You will find something you didn't even know you were looking for. They also have a cute place to sit and have coffee and lunch and also a great selection in their freezer... More
