Janicke Bakery has been pumping out great bakery goods for decades. I'm never disappointed with any of their products. They are the best.

This is a great old fashioned bakery. Displays in windows of what kind of goodies are available. Small coffee shop. The best place to get fresh daily bakery goods!

This is one of the best bakeries for pastries and donuts in northern MN. The atmosphere is a little dated and they don't offer fancy coffees, but to pick up a few fresh pastries it is awesome!

The bakery items themselves are very good. I don't normally like "donut based" things but these were different. But check the hours as they are closed Sunday and Monday. I believe they close early afternoon. And the prices are a little high. Then again, you get what you pay for and Super 8 uses their baked goods so that is... More

Their Banana Flip donuts are awesome! They become addictive! We love everything they make, but be there early since they sell out fast.

Not the same quality of products since the new owners took over the business a few years ago. I had been coming here my whole life, almost 30 years, but now I don't come anymore because nothing tastes the same. Disappointing.

This cute bakery has been around forever! Thank goodness! The people are friendly and the service great. Their breads are mouth-watering. I love the jelly rolls and glazed twists are my favorites.

The rare local bakery that you smell long before you enter! This was a welcome sidelight to a two day trip. A full range of pastries, cookies and breads in tradional display cases - on my 'must stop' list anytime I'm in the area.

I love their custard filled long johns. The doughnuts with chocolate on the outside and cream in the center are very good too.

If you just want an old fashioned bakery for some good treats, this is it. Janicke has been around for a long time with several owners but is really has kept that home town feel and size.

Thank Mike J
