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.

The apple fritters here are wonderful. Beautifully golden brown and loaded with apples. Very good with a cup of coffee.

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.
