Great desserts! From the famous kringle, to simple custard and cheese danishes! Everything is so fresh and tasty! Make sure you go there in the morning otherwise they run out of kringles. The other sweets are also very good, the rum ball is something worth...More

This is a family owned business and they really make the most delicious fudge. There are so many flavors, it’s hard to choose. They will ship your order anywhere in the US for a pretty reasonable price. Very friendly people.
