Everything is made fresh! Made by very experience hands. I won't give my age but I'd walk here as a kid. It's the only original Bakery in Green Bay that I'm aware of. If you know what Knee Caps are you can't leave without buying some.theres always a line on a Saturday morning.

Best doughnuts ever plus cakes, pies, and other desserts to die for. I love their bread for a good grilled cheese.

Stop at this bakery on University Av in Green Bay. University used to be called Willow Street, hence the name. Their bakery is delicious and the knee caps, think light doughnut holding mounds of whipped cream, are what have made Willow Street Bakery famous. Cream Puffs are also exceptional. Bakery is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Heard so many good things about this place and finally tried it out, a couple times, and it was just average. The Knee Caps were almost stale flavored. Staff was friendly though.

Whenever I want some great baked sweet rolls, breads or pies I go here. There is no comparison to the big grocery stores. If you want to impress somebody get your baked goods here

Decided to grab doughnuts at 6:30am on a Saturday morning for a company event. Walked into to Willow Street, which is on the now named University Avenue, and the sights and aroma of a classic local bakery overtook me. A dozen variety box was $9.50, fresh, delicious and enjoyed by all.

We stopped at this bakery every day we were visiting Green Bay. The cream puffs are absolutely delicious and my husband loved their French donut.
