OMG! This place rocks!!! The custard filled chocolate donut was HUGE and so heavy! I had to share it with my husband but he had the fritter and was filling up fast! Coffee was good. The store was AMAZING! Had to get the insulated mug, pin, stickers and of course, a t-shirt! Loved the cop patches and other stuff in the store. Just can't wait to get back. Wish I had taken some for "on the road"! Must try the bacon topped maple donut next time! I'd be over 200lbs if I lived close by!!!
Are you kidding me? Spice cookies (orange frosting) the size of coffee saucers, cherry or apple fritters the size of a small plate, cinnamon rolls the size of the Hulk's fists. This place is amazing, and the corresponding price is amazing. My favorite might still be the eclair-shaped donut with maple frosting and topped with 2 strips of bacon. Yes, bacon. I get ADD, and can't decide what I want, everything is so good. I'm even interested in trying some of the basic diner food they have off on the side, made to order. Great place, I always make this a stop off point when we head up North.
We heard about the story on how the place was saved from closing down, and the baked goods were good. I stopped on our way down state one time, now its a requirement! Anytime we go north or back home, we have to hit this place. The small pies, doughnuts, fritters, everything is really good. The cinnamon rolls are not only good, they are HUGE! Very friendly staff, and now they serve food too in the diner. Looking forward to trying that next.
