Have been going to Continent Bakery for about 44 years and the quality is as great now as it was back then. The prices are fair and the baked goods are amazing. There is usually a line to get to the counter. The workers are friendly. I would highly recommend this bakery.

This is a great take out place for meat pies, fruit pies, Portugese specialties, etc. Only problem is that it's closed part of the year and we can't get their products.

How a small town local bakery can produce and sell so much is a mystery - even in the off-season. But they do it and there's... More

This is my hometown bakery and everything is delicious. The cases are always full of the freshest treats you could imagine. This is a drop that will not disappoint. Highly recommended.

They have great portugese sandwiches & other portugese foods. The pastry is also delicious. They have a big selection of both pastry and food.
