Best and deepest, thickest, chocolate cream pie in the area! It goes without saying how delicious it is! Has remained a tradition for my husband's birthday for years. He so looks forward to it!

Love this bakery! It’s been our Sunday morning tradition for 30 years. Best in town! Pastries are always fresh and delicious. Apple bread makes amazing French toast too.

I liked to get their pies and coffee cakes when we have out of town guests. Better than I can make myself, and no mess or hassle. When I want to treat myself, I love their freshly made donuts.
