Bakery
“This is the classic old fashioned bakery that still makes all the donuts you remember as a kid the right way in a historic building that still looks like it used to inside. Glazed dunkers, Long Johns custard or cream filled, Danish Pastries, Apple Fritters and much more with a full assortment of cookies. Only place I know in Michigan that has German Pretzels that taste like my Great Grandma Kurtz's. ”
