“Best pasties!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We LOVE Roy's pasties! They're all so, so, SO good. Our favorites are the traditional ones and the chicken broccoli ones. We've tried their baked goodies too and the strawberry rhubarb bars are to die for. We've only had good experiences at Roy's so far. Oh and a side note, if you collect enough stamps on their card, you can get a free pasty at the end.

“Finally tried a pasty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Ya can't drive the length of the UP without at least TRYING a bite of pasty so we did here. It was...okay...more potato than beef. Not bad though. They had a chicken one also and other baked items.
Now that we've tried them...we're done!

“Great for Treats-Meals Leave Something to be Desired.......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

As an earlier reviewer indicated, the sweet treats and dessert-type baked goods are quite good---likely, some of the best in the area. The sandwiches used to be better and has become a point of concern as the quality of the ingredients---and quantity----has taken a real dip over the past several years. As an example, Roy's Ten Grain Bread (used on sandwiches) has become "a shadow" of what they previously made and used----that has become a real disappointment.

“Wow for the Sweet Tooth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Roy's makes THE BEST doughnuts and pasties. The doughnuts aren't the sickening too-sweet, artificial flavored things they call doughnuts at most doughnut shops and grocery stores today. They're perfect - just like an old hometown bakery should be. The pasties vary from traditional to non-traditional, but we love all that we've tried there. They even have a few tables if you want to sit and eat. Don't pass by this place without stopping.
