Stepping into this shop will overwhelm your tastebuds! My husband bought a gigantic sweet roll which he could not eat at one sitting. Very tasty.

Ran to this store because they were closing at 1pm today only for them to be for ever closed because of retirement. So many stores come and go from this town. It's sad

Great loaves of bread. Owner has been doing this for 30 years. Lots of selection, although they were out of banana nut the day I visited.

In a desperate search for delicious dessert in downtown Galena, I stopped in this cute little bakery as my last hope. Galena is short on great dessert. I picked a long john which I paid an extra dollar to have filled with buttercream and a...More

We've been here a bit times and it does not disappoint. Located on the quieter side of Main St. Today I had the mini peach pie. Perfect for two, or one who doesn't want to share! Loved it. Mary was very sweet.

I know she was still open and looking to retire with a "for sale" sign up less than 2 weeks ago. Too bad. Nice lady, good treats.
