A European Bakery

After finishing a big commissioned sewing project last week, I rewarded myself with a field trip to a European bakery in town.

I haven’t been there in years, so I couldn’t remember what to expect. It doesn’t get great reviews on Yelp, making me a bit skeptical.

However, since I like to do my own thing and form my own opinions, I explored with an open mind. I learned that the owners are originally from Germany, and moved here to the upper midwest in the late 1950s, bringing with them traditional European bakery recipes. Their daughter runs the bakery now, after getting her pastry degree in Germany.

They offer a huge variety of old world baked goods, including bread, cookies, desserts, sweetbreads, candies, truffles and more.

As you can see from my pictures, I was not disappointed!

The smells of freshly baked bread, the sights of all the beautiful confections and glazed frosting!

It was a mouth-watering experience!

I didn’t buy anything I couldn’t make at home, so I bought a French baguette for dinner, two croissants for Saturday morning breakfast, and one of those decadent morning buns for fun. 

Good thing I’ve been working out again regularly.
