My grand daughters favorite bakery and there's a reason. If you don't get there early you won't get any. There have been times the line is down the street. Fresh baked pastries. Papaw made in time today. Mmmm

See what I did there? Okay. Anyway -- Not much I can say about Nord's other than that the donuts are so delicious, I will sometimes wake up on a Saturday morning having dreamt of them. Just a good old fashioned local mom and pop donut shop with a line out the door (or close to it) most weekend mornings.... More

I've been wanting to try Nord's for sometime and I'm glad I did. You know it is a good sign when the line is out the door. Even though it was a long line I was in and out quick. Make sure you try the maple bacon doughnut!!!

OMG! I've always thought that doughnuts basically all taste the same. That was until I visited Nords. They make a chocolate glazed doughnut that is just amazing. I can't wait to go back and try their other flavors.

These donuts are the absolute best we've ever had -anywhere! Mouth watering deliciousness in every bite. Pick any donut you want, you can't go wrong. Simply amazing.

My husband treats us to these delicious donuts after working third shift. His family has been going to this bakery for over 30 years. Their German chocolate Danishes are the absolute best. These donuts don't last long in our house.

We had heard about Nords for a long time and even read about them in FoodNetwork Magazine. We found ourselves in the neighborhood at about 2 pm and still were able to enjoy some wonderful (and cute) cookies, danishes, and donuts. We were to late for the maple with bacon and their other specialty. We will visit again, on purpose,... More

This is an old school bakery. Be prepared to wait in a line but I can assure you it is worth it. We will drive 25 mins just to get the sinus for a treat. They are by far the best in the city. It is a very old bakery and reminds me of when my grandpa use to take... More

The baker sought out all the old-school recipes from bakeries long since closed to offer some of the best pastries on the planet. The signature bacon-maple is nice but i prefer the coconut long john paired with a cream-filled chocolate long john. They do pies, cookies and kuchen very well also,

For Easter we had their Coconut Cake. It was EXCELLENT!!!!! The Maple Long Johns with Bacon on top is legendary. All of the donuts are Delicious!!!!!!!! The cakes are moist and so fresh. I love Nord's Bakery. Get there early, cause when they sell out they close.
