I like patronizing a local establishment when they put out good products. Their location is handy for locals and people traveling through as they are close to highway 30.

This is a lovely bakery decorated pleasantly with family recipes and bright, comfortable decor. Very inviting, owner operated and there every day to make your dining experience a pleasure. Amazing baked goods, freshly baked each day and delicious to the last bite. Absolutely eat here, you will not be disappointed!

I happened to finally catch this place open and was delighted by the animal cookie cake slice I tried. I also got a few cupcakes to go that were delicious as well. Their hours seem to be hit or miss though and the times that I did go in, there wasn't much to choose from in the cases

Restaurant looks run down, even with the touch ups but breakfast is good and most other menu items are solid. Perfect if your looking for an all-american, small town diner that has seen better years.

We've stopped here a couple of times for treats to go. Never a disappointment. They also have lunch items, and they look good too (and we can take them to go). Next time!

When Houlton Bakery first opened in St. Helens it was like nothing the two had previously seen. The proprietors, Gainor and Joe, were experienced restauranteurs and immediately began serving up fresh baked breads and pastries, then added sandwiches and pizza, until the place had a fiercely loyal following of regular customers, drawn there daily by the small but varying menu...

I've been there a few years ago. It was set up pretty nice. Now there is stuff everywhere. One of the ladies was sitting down with her feet up eating her lunch. The way she was looking at everyone , it was just scary. There wasn't a lot in the display case. Salads and a sandwich and a few cupcakes.... More

I love the tomato soup. First time I have ever had diced up tomatoes in the soup. The flavor was awesome. I will return and promote this product to everyone I can. Brenda makes the best sticky buns. The size of one is plenty for two people. Or eat part of one and save the other half for the next... More

Brenda's cupcakes are awesome! Both the frosting and the cake part were delicious. Tried the candy cane ones and planning to return soon to try the rest.
