I have been going here for 50 years. with about a 35 year gap. I used to go to the bakery in my teens and the goods were excellent. I moved away and I was in the neighborhood so I stopped in 35 years later...More

Cannot believe how good their donut holes are. And the glazed donuts are perfection, probably the best I've ever had. Friendly and helpful service too!

We found this bakery a short drive from our visit to Miinnehaha Falls Park. Among us, we had the carrot cake, rum-soaked walnut pastry, eclair, and mini cream puffs. All were amazingly delicious! Quick, friendly service, and very reasonable prices.

My wife and kids love the doughnuts from here. Whenever we are nearby we try to stop in for some fresh treats. It is an old school bakery and the staff is friendly.

This is our go-to for doughnuts and other morning pastries. Absolutely the best. So good, in fact, that we ordered up a car with them and served them at a recent family wedding. Many passed up the wedding cake for a couple doughnuts!
