When you walk in the door, you know it's good! The rye bread, Rolls and buns, cookies, Danish rings, cakes. It's a taste bud frenzy. What a great Bake shop. Don't go in hungry.

Big Apple Bakery is an excellent old school Bakery. They have outstanding baked goods including their rolls.

Best I've found either at shire or back up north. Rye bread is super. Hope the baker never retires. See a lot of new faces working at the store. Was up for sale.

Always a great place to shop. Stopped by to buy 3 doz. cookies for a thank you gift for my bank. While there, bought something for me. The eclairs were a disappointment. Stale? The cheesecake cherry strudel the usual good.
