It’s been a number of years since I have been coming here. Bread, donuts, cookies, cupcakes. It just never disappoints. I came into town last week and the first thing I thought of was that huge Cherry Danish Could not settle til I had one....More

Probably my favorite bakery in the twin cities. All of their bakery is freshly made and excellent. Service is great, even when there is a line going outside on warmer days. Worth the wait and people are friendly to talk to.

The croissants here were not good for croissants--they were more like okay rolls--but the other items we bought were very good. We especially liked the American Tea Cake. There isn't any great atmosphere--just a simple donut shop environment.

The vibe changed....bummer. Blueberry turnovers were a family favorite. Great hamburger buns! They are closed on Mondays to recover from working on Sundays.

Their donuts are just like you remember Grandma making. The red velvet cupcakes are first rate. The breads & coffee cakes are good too.

Very disappointed. The owner sold out last year and it has gone downhill. Selection is very limited and the quality of the items is not the same. Getting rid of the clutter also meant dropping at least half of the selection. What really upset me...More
