After being forced to stand waiting in the street with my children, despite nobody else in store or in line, I was refused entry. The children were all masked, but I cannot wear one and was willing to show my exemption. They did not care...and would only shout at us from behind the counter while we stood in the doorway. I have been an occasional customer since at least 1975 and kept returning out of nostalgia, but will never spend another cent in there after that purposely humiliating and discriminatory experience. They made my youngest cry and ruined their outing. The single star is only given in remembrance of what this bakery used to be.More

Felt the Covid protocols were very sfety conscious. The staff was quite helpful and attentive. The array of delectable goodies to choose fro was almost overwhelming. We loved the fill your bag of day olds for $10.00 -everything was so tasty and fresh.

We went there the first time in Sep 2020 because of the advertisement (and to find out if they are famous simply because of no competition). Last week we visited the town again and went for a treat. Unlike last year that we had to...order online and then lined up for 20+ mins to get in and pick up, there was no long line up during weekday so we got in pretty quick. The donuts and tarts were tasty and reasonably priced so we returned. I would give them a 5- star if they could get rid of the flies - they were hovering the bakery and the staff just keep waving over the flies. They really have to address this fly problem.More

We have yet to try the cream filled donuts since we get there too late in the day, but we have tried their regular donuts, tarts and pies. Amazing variety for such a tiny place. Recently we tried a raspberry crumble pie.....one of the best...pies we've ever had - wow! We've also enjoyed their breads/buns at some of the local restaurants. Worth a trip if you have a sweet tooth!More

I ordered each of their cream filled donuts and some of their regular ones, and they are all good! The regular crueller seems to be filled with custard cream inside too! The cream filled donuts taste great! Be prepared to gain 5 pounds after enjoying...their totally delicious donuts! But well worth the weight gain. We went on a Friday at around 9:30 of a non-long weekend, there was no lineup and when we went out 5 minutes later, the lineup already stretched to the corner! Very popular!More

Excellent baked goods and a very quaint little bakery. Best to order ahead or get there when they open.

If you place an order be ready to wait in long long line up because they have no system to allow you just just grab your order and leave....poor planning might have been a better title for this review.... They should require everyone to make...an order to alleviate people having to wait 45 min-hour for an order they placed in advance.... ridiculous Will not be back ...the bakery isn’t worth the waitMore

Another local place. Rated number 1 bakery and it's worth a visit. Great donuts . Be ready to stand in line because every person within 100 miles visits.
