Received, as a gift, a package of assorted pastries - what a fabulous, delicious gift. I will make to put this place on my "to visit" list when traveling through Iowa!

Jaarsma's is a landmark. It's the first stop you make when you come home. It's the treat you can take to anyone & the next time they'll request it or pout at you when you don't think of them. The bismarks are a MUST...the filling is like nothing you've ever had!, the cherry donut holes, the almond logs (letters are good too but much more almond paste in the logs), the Miss Piggy cookies w/ the big nose you lick off, yummy, yum yum. Don't miss this stop if you're w/in an hour or two. Plenty more to do in the area while you're here! Best selection in the morning....they often sell out in the afternoon! (Always options...but the favs will be gone until morning!)

What can you say? A great bakery that just reminds you of home. Always have to stop by and load up before leaving town for New Mexico. Only problem is, it's all gone before I get home to New Mexico!!

Stopped here before leaving Pella. Got some great goodies to take home. The bakery was very busy with other conference attendees and they were very patient and helpful to everyone!

The Jaarsma Bakery had so many goodies from which to choose that we had a hard time making up our minds! They have wonderful pastries, delicious homemade breads, and yummy cookies! I would highly recommend you visit them if you are in Pella!
