Lyndell's is THE BEST bakery around!! The half moons and mocha cakes are a must try! We always stop here to pick up goodies before a family function or visiting a friend. So good!

Excellent baking just like Ma used to bake - except better (sorry, Ma). Old school things like pies, cookies, pastries, and cakes. Don't expect chi-chi, expect lines for good, honest food. My go-to place for bread, rolls, and for bringing a little something when I...More

Stopped here with my wife (who is a baker, and very discerning) and were pleasantly surprised. Doesn't look like much from the outside but everything she tried she raved about...and that never happens!
