I was starting to think I didn't like donuts and pastries. Then I discovered Barney's. They are truly the best!

Our local bakery was out of my favorite. I needed to bring a coffee cake for a family weekend at the lake. A local in Bay City told us to try Barney's 'pizza' coffee cake.

Best cinnamon bread for years now. I used to take a loaf or two to my daughters class when she was in elementary school. It was the best treat ever and the teachers appreciated that it was not messy.

This is the best Bakery in my opinion in Bay City. My parent went there when I was young and I still try to get back there when visiting Bay City. Try their chocolate nugget cookies. Their own special recipe.

Well we were on mission to find a bakery with Apple pie. Ha we found it, along with cookies, breads, fritters, donuts, and lots of yummy treats! Good prices in a neighborhood setting, so the surroundings were a bit put off. The little chocolate Mexican cooli hit the spot!

Best bread, best Halloween and turkey cookies. Punkin squares are great. Christmas cookies however do need a little better decorations.

excellent bread, wonderful fresh smell, homey feel. Can't say enough about their baked goods. They don't just cater to the "new American super sweet taste buds" but have all the good stuff!
