It's like going back to the 50's. Family owned with all kinds of choices. The round table by the window is for locals who are territorial in a nice kind of way. The maple frosted cinnamon roles are to die for.

I absolutely love goodale's! I stop in every chance I get. You must too. I look forward to a special treat on my way to the U P or Traverse City. do not allow this little gem to go the way of small business extinction. I wish there were more places like this but somehow people are bamboozled by brand names. Every review is on target; friendly, quaint, aromatic, delicious, variety, absolute perfection!

Everything this bakery has looks delicious. We were scouting for a good, multigrain, hearty breatd which they didn't have. The had mountains of white bread (I call synthetic bread) plus whole wheat but nothing exotic. Their pastries, breakfast rolls, etc. looked perfect.

We went here to get our Fat Tuesday Punchkis. They are some of the best we have eaten. Many flavors to choose from and fast service. We will definitely make the trip back there next year! There were many other items in the case that looked delicious as well.

Tucked around the corner on a side street, is the venerable and unpretentious Goodale's Bakery. After climbing a couple of steps out of the tiny entryway, you come into the fragrant and beloved atmosphere of this old, hometown bakery. Immediately you are greeted with little racks of freshly baked breads, dinner rolls, coffeecakes, sweet rolls, etc. The small but well-stocked deli counter offers, along with popular brands, Michigan brand favorite meats and cheeses (Kowalski's, etc.), and sauces, pickles, etc., and the personnel will make any sandwich that you can think of on homemade bread or rolls. There are great soups and some side dishes available, too, and hot, delicious coffee, always.

The bakery counter is filled with old-timey fresh doughnuts and pastries that just cannot be found anywhere else - all are homemade and heavenly and remind one of what a bakery should really be.

If you only have a moment, spend it by ordering a fresh doughnut, a cup of coffee (or grab a soft drink) and set yourself down at one of the small tables bordering the plate windows. You will immediately be transported back into a more simple and wonderful time and you will leave the bakery feeling relaxed and refreshed.

We have been coming to Goodale's for decades and would be truly lost without its wonderful offerings and homespun charm.
