The Johnson Family has developed excellent recipes and produces beautiful and tasty breads, cakes and pastries. They're away from the tourist route but easy to find in Lincoln Park; also in Lakeside. Great prices. I don't use the coffee shop but know many people who are "regulars".

Stumbled on this bakery located off the beaten path in Duluth. Got a delicious 6 inch strawberry tort for 5,00. Regretted not going for the 9 inch. Muffins were tasty as well and very reasonably priced. Would like to go back to try some of their great looking breads

Johnson's is synonymous with quality baked goods in Duluth. This location as far as I know is the original and you can tell by the regulars posted up enjoying coffee and donuts most mornings. Johnson's has been in business since the 40s and is a true family business spanning generations. Great service, delicious baked goods. Very affordable. Highly recommended.

from scratch bakery and a go to place for someone needing items for making their own creation. It is my "Go To Place" when I need to have an edible image created for a special occasion cake I am preparing my self. Very reasonable priced and very professional creations

We have been loyal customers since 1980. Can't get better rolls anywhere. Their coffee cakes are delicious as well!

Johnson's has been around town for a very long time and their high quality pastries prove why. My favorites are the bran muffins and the doughnut holes. Their dinner rolls are a staple at any family holiday meal.

Love this local bakery! Nice variety for a small town bakery. Just down the road are some fun shops to visit when your bakery stop is complete

Our family has a tradition of finding a good bakery in every city we travel to. This place we came across because it was the only bakery in our GPS! It was in an older part of town, tucked away in a neighborhood that had we not searched the GPS, we would have never found! Don't let appearances fool you,... More
