“Wonderful Old Fashioned Bakery”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

For a small store, Harvest has a wide variety of baked breads, cakes, cookies, and pastries. they even have a no-sugar added selection. The quality is top notch - fresh fillings, and the poppyseed hard rolls are exactly as I remember them from where I grew up 40 years ago. Friendly owner and counter help, you can tell there are many regulars. This place has been in business for decades, and the fact that it continues to thrive is a testament to the quality and value they offer.

“Small place with great taste But needs an update on cake decorations”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

The cakes are fluffy and moist. The frosting is to die for, and so is their bread!

The bread is so fresh, and great to pick up to bring to any special occasion.

They just really need to update twir cake decoration toppers and wedding toppers.

Also some hello kitty cup cakes / cookies would be awesome

“Cakes & Breads”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I have been shopping at this bakery for 5 or more years and highly recommend it. The people are friendly and the cakes and treats are delicious! This year I tried their "Sugar Free" cake for one of my bosses birthdays. It was a GREAT HIT! If you haven't tried it, it is worth the effort to drive here and enjoy!

“Best bread anywhere”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Harvest is a family run business and it shows. The quality and service are fabulous, the hard rolls are the best anywhere, dinner rolls in several varieties make it easy to create an elegant luncheon presentation. The prices are low considering the excellent quality. Harvest really gives back to the community, add that to the fact that theirs is the best product around it its easy to be a regular and loyal customer.
