“hard to find, but worth it”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Fresh donuts made on site. The 'skin' crunches when you bit into the donuts. A pain to find without GPS - but worth the trip. Lowest prices in the area for a quality product. Their cherry pie is almost as good as I make. Don't care for their breads though.

“A real bakery - Don't miss it!”
Reviewed December 7, 2011

Sanitary has been around for years and years. They make everything: breads, cupcakes, cookies, donuts, cakes! The prices are very good and the quality is high. Don't be surprised on weekends if the line goes out the door. If you plan to be in town a couple of days, you can always pre-order favorite items.

If it's busy, get a number and wait your turn. Make sure you check all the displays so you know what you want.

“The best donuts and whipped cream cakes you can buy!”
Reviewed April 28, 2011

The split cream donuts are out of this world and we always order their whipped cream cakes for special occasions. If you want "fussy" looking pastry, go someplace else, but if you want the best tasting baked goods in the area, come to Sanitary Bakery. Their pizza is pretty good too but it isn't available every day. This is one of the places I must go when up in the area visiting family. Their prices are very reasonable too.

“Best Poppy Seed Roll in the Northeast US!”
Reviewed April 24, 2011

Their poppy seed roll is the best I have EVER had. I have had it several times over the years. My wife and kids like it best sliced; I love to throw a slice in the toaster. Either way it is so very good. I do not live in the area of the bakery, so I rely on people to stop in and bring a loaf or two (or three or four) back with the,!
