Wagner's is a great bakery! We had a very good blueberry muffin, large delicious cinammon roll, good coffee! Friendly relaxed atmosphere. So good we came back for some carrot cake that afternoon! Worth the trip! We will be back!

Two things you should know about Wagner's... 1) Donuts are NOT their only specialty! Be sure to try the other bakery treats, the deli sandwiches and ESPECIALLY the cinnamon bread! (Hint: Buy a loaf of cinnamon bread and make French Toast... family will love you...More
