They make the best doughnuts in town! Their crissants are very good too especially the ham and cheese or chocolate croissants. The service is fast and friendly but there is very little room to sit so don't plan on eating there unless you want to sit outside where there is some seating.

So YUMMY! We have been there several times now and never disappoints! If you want a melt-in-your-mouth fresh tasting, like homemade donut experience, do NOT miss this place! I love the atmosphere, even waiting in line, smelling the baking and talking with the diverse group of people is part of the experience. Amazing how something so simple as fresh baked... More

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 was that the kid who said he had only been there 6 weeks was trying... More

We visit my son and family in Minneapolis a couple of times a year. We are a donut loving family and have tried several stores in the area. We keep coming back to A Baker's Wife. There is usually a line on weekends, but the wait is worth it. Also, don't plan on eating there because there is only a... More

We get up early and drive 23 miles just to get the warm decadent donuts that they make here. The lines are a testament to the yummy treats you get here. Our favorites include the American tea cake and the chocolate covered donuts. The staff is happy and quick to serve you too. Enjoy!!

I ordered Carrot Cake for dessert at Buster's ( next door) delicious. The piece was large, I shared with my dinner companion and still had some left to take home.
