The store hours showed open, but there was a closed sign on the door. However, the owner arrived late and let us in. He was out of a lot of the breads, but offered to make them for us. When getting home and doing the taste test,there were great!

In a desperate search for delicious dessert in downtown Galena, I stopped in this cute little bakery as my last hope. Galena is short on great dessert. I picked a long john which I paid an extra dollar to have filled with buttercream and a double chocolate muffin. Neither were special but both were good. My low rating is because,... More

We've been here a bit times and it does not disappoint. Located on the quieter side of Main St. Today I had the mini peach pie. Perfect for two, or one who doesn't want to share! Loved it. Mary was very sweet.

This bakery is on the Main Street in Galena. We wandered in based on a recommendation from a local person. They had a good selection of baked goods- desserts. But the wonderful discovery was their one lunch option- hot from the oven chicken pot pies- truly made from scratch. Amazing.

I had read good reviews about this bakery so decided I had to try it. My husband and I ordered an apple fritter. It was not fresh it was pretty stale we each took a bite and threw it out. Did not go back.

This is a small ba,kery which has what you would expect from a bakery an d so much more. I had a Twisted Sister and my daughter had a mini doughnut. She's not a sweet eater. However she loved the jalapeño cheddar bread. There were a lot of other breads which you would not expect to find.

Recent trip to Galena Shopping with a girlfriend and stopped in this small Bakery. We were not hungry since we just had lunch but from all the wonderful bakery smells I had to buy a cinnamon loaf. Took it home and sliced it for french toast- it was WONDEFUL, I think the best I have ever had. The bread was... More
