This bakery is known all over southeastern CT as having the BEST donuts and pastries. Better get there early as it closes when all the goodies are sold out!

We had bagels and a Boston Creme donut. The bagels were fresh and very good. My grandson said the donut was wonderful! They only accept cash and no bills over 50.00

Everything is fresh. Best donuts and delicious apple strudel. Not your frozen goods like at the supermarket chains. This is the real thing!
