You must stop in and have breakfast or lunch and then stop by the bakery counter on your way out. We love the cheese danish and the 1 cent cookie deal. Great package noodles as well. A south haven favorite for my family!

This is your typical small town bakery. It's a great place to stop for some cookies while shopping. Be sure to take the 2-dozen deal!! First dozen is $5.99 and the second for $0.01!!
