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.
