The staff was so helpful for our allergies. They guided us toward yummy treats. It was a nice place to stop for treats for the road.

Great bakery products and a food cafe. They serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Also snacks. Coffee and? The Bakery has a special sale! Buy a dozen cookies and get the second dozen for 1 cent!

I have been going here (and predecessors) since I was a kid and now I take my grandkids. Great donuts and a fun way to start any morning in South Haven. It can be crowded on a weekend or Holiday, but the line moves quickly. Not cheap donuts, but they are really good.

Our family enjoyed breakfast here last week. We had a combination of doughnuts and traditional breakfast. There is so much to choose from! We all agreed that they had some of the best doughnuts ever! I also loved my latte! We will defiantly be returning on our next visit to SoHa!

Fresh and delicious donuts. From the giant cinnamon rolls to the cream filled donuts this is worth the wait. While it was busy during the morning rush, the staff was friendly when waiting on me. A place to visit.

We stopped by to get a dozen doughnuts for a Sunday breakfast and were not disappointed. They have coupons on their website so be sure to look before you go, a dozen doughnuts ended up being around $10 for us, although we did get some of the larger options.

Besides wonderful donuts, cookies, coffee cakes, pastries, etc. the Golden Brown has a modest cafe attached. If you want a plain but delicious breakfast, eat here. The eggs, bacon and hash browns are all very tasty and the coffee hot! It's not fancy but the quality is excellent.

I didn't eat in, just purchased some bread and cookies. The bread was excellent and the German Rye even better. Cookies, Danish and donuts were all great. Thoroughly recommended!

You walk into the bakery and it smells AMAZING....beautiful pastries, cookies, donuts, etc are displayed behind glass cases. Then, you can walk into the cafe portion only to find cafeteria style service. We had the pulled pork sandwich with fries and a veggie wrap that came with chips. I also had the turkey and rice soup, which was wonderful! The... More
