Popped in here on my drive home to North Carolina for two donuts for the road. Got the glazed curler and a twisted glazed yeast donut and they were both good. Although not 5 star donuts, they were good. Nothing fancy or unique, just old-timey goodness. Their coffee was good as well. Any good bakery opens early and this one... More

I originally went into emersons to find out about wedding cakes. I was told to buy a cupcake to do a taste test because they use the same cake for the wedding cakes. Well the cupcakes they had were really old, probably been there since easter due to the spring like decorations....which was a week ago. The cake was crumbly... More

I stopped in Emerson's Bakery on my way to work to grab a donut. I shouldn't have bothered. The staff wasn't very friendly. They had 3 people working and all 3 weren't friendly to us when we walked in...they were too busy talking to another guy. One of them asked to help us and we ordered but while we were... More

Emersons is a family business local to this area for years and years. The pastries are delicate and the pies and cakes are delightful. Donuts are light in texture and varied in type. So much better than Duncan donuts just down the road. There is also Elmo's bagels in this store that serves bagel sandwiches. There are tables to sit... More

Good donuts but a $5.00 minimum on credit card purchases???? REALLY! Is this some ploy to get people to spend more money or is your profit margin really that low. Dunkin here WE come.

Emerson's Bakery is an original, a classic staple in Northern Kentucky and if you grew up in Florence, Erlanger, or the surrounding areas then you probably grew up loving these fresh, addicting, probably not-so-healthy for you donuts. + The smell of the store... Lordy. + The price!!! + Peanut topped caramel donuts. Can not be beat. Emerson's is great.

Based on previous reviews I had high expectations and we drove out of our to go to Emerson's. I was not impressed. Most baked goods wrapped, not sure of freshness. Would definitely not stop again.

Pros--the smells! More pros-excellent selection, careful packaging, delightful staff, very reasonable prices, easy access, plenty of parking, and of course just tasty beyond description. Cons--only the calories! We stopped in to sample some pastries, and were not disappointed. We've never used them for large orders or custom cakes, and if we needed something special, we'd go to Emerson's. Just yummy!

I have lived in the Northern Kentucky area all my life. I have been going to Emersons since I was little. If you are going to Emersons for doughnuts, for the most part they will not disappoint you. Do not order anything special. I have special ordered Christmas cookies, and the order was supposedly lost. I ordered Easter Cookies and... More

Always fresh, always fast, and always priced well. I love every item in this Bakery. It is the best bakery I have ever visited. They even made my wedding cake that was fabulously decorated and all my guests loved every bite of it!! This is definitely the local best spot!!!!
