This hometown bakery is legendary in the Green Bay area. Our visit today was for some sandwich bread, but you never know what else you will find. We rarely walk out with just what we came in for.

The front parking lot (just east of De Pere High School) usually has spaces, though busy times can move you to street parking. The bakery counter and bakery (they do some baking at this site though have a larger commercial bakery that supplies their various outlets) are to your right as you enter. You will find six to eight kinds of breads, the crazy-delicious kringles, cookies, donuts and sweet rolls. You will be helped at the bakery counter by someone in a whirly-gig hat (really!) who will then check you out at the register.

Even though we were there for breads (Uncle Mike's White, and Harvest), we had to sample the newest and best kringle in help-yourself dishes on the top of the counter. A kringle is a large, pretzel-shaped danish stuffed with love and sprinkled with happiness. There are new kringles each time we visit, but the Door County Cherry is still my all time favorite. Other varieties include Caramel Apple, Sea Salt Caramel Pecan and Strawberry Cheese, among others. You can order a full kringle, or a half.

We are members of the bread club and had a free loaf of bread coming today from past purchases. Yea! We also turned in our red holiday envelope to see what our New Year's bonus would be. Today, it was a free donut. I picked the triple chocolate with chocolate creme filling. Since I'll split it with my wife, i think it's OK for the diet.

There are some tables and chairs by the cake display and serve-yourself coffee. I have seen people at the tables with coffee and a kringle between them. That is a good breakfast. Most people take their treats with them.

I grew up in Racine surrounded by real Danish bakeries and ate more Kringle at every function I have attended and feel guilty and a bit disloyal to my friends in Racine but Uncle Mike's is the best.

Now if Uncle Mike learned how to make an authentic Danish layer cake he would have it all.
