I have childhood memories of this place, so...about 25 years ago...and during a recent visit to Duluth I stopped by and was pleased to see it was still open and still making great baked goods! You cannot find bakeries like this in the suburbs big cities, I know, because Ihave looked! If you do find one in the big city, it will cost you an arm and a leg for a single pastry. My husband and I popped in to this place and bought a dozen of my favorite frosted cookie cutouts, which are amazing at this place! I was shocked when we paid and it was less than $8! I pay more than that for a typical quick stop at Starbucks! Gotta love small town pricing.
The place itself definitely feels small town, nothing fancy interior or exterior-wise. The neighborhood is your typical old Duluth with a huge church on the corner of every other block, a mix of shuffling old people and young gangster wannabe looking kids wandering along the tree-lined streets.
This is a great place to go at both the start of your trip to Duluth. You get into the old, small town mentality, and get a tasty baked good as well. The cream puffs are phenomenal as well.
