What I’ve ordered:
Of all donuts, I think I love fritters the most.  The Apple Fritter at Grandma’s is over an inch thick, with a decent amount of apples and cinnamon.  The inside is soft yet dense and the outside has a slight crust and just the perfect amount of glaze.

They have a handful of  Kruller varieties at Grandma’s, I have tried the glazed.  Great, eggy texture while still being somewhat firm.

The Maple Long John with Bacon made my Food Spotlight a few months ago. This raised donut was light and airy, soft on the inside with a slightly crunchy golden crust.  The maple icing was sweet and when paired with the crispy, salty bacon crumbles, it tasted like classic breakfast with every bite ;)

I rarely eat jelly or custard-filled donuts but was intrigued when I saw the bright neon green frosting and then sold when I was told they were Key Lime.  The filling was tangy and delicious.

Another Donut Grandma’s offers is a Chocolate Cake Donut with Coconut (natural or toasted).  Very good

Service: The ladies who work at the bakery are incredibly sweet and patient, your order is prepared with care.
Overall Impression: Great place to pick up any bakery item that you could want or need.  I recommend stopping for breakfast and getting something sweet with a coffee.

  1. My daughter was given a beehive cake today for her birthday and she shared it . It was absolutely delicious, more like a pastry, the filling was so light. I believe I will be making a trip across the St.Croix soon.

  2. they may have very tasty food but have very POOR customer relations!!!! If you are planning a wedding or special event run the other way. We received very little help or communication with the staff during our tasting which should have been warning number one. I order my cake 8 months in advance and never heard from them again after I ordered no conformation or anything. When I arrived at my venue I found the cake to be the wrong shape which ment a lot to me due to family tradition. They refuse to take any responsibility in the mistake even though it was their staff member who filled out the order form incorrectly. I went with them strictly because they were the cheapest and now I know why. Cub or Walmart get my orders correct and this place can’t that says a lot. Thank you for screwing up an important part of a day I can never get back!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I’m sorry that happened to you on such an important day! This place does have poor customer service. I went there last year to order some bakery for our large family Christmas gathering. Had never been there before and heard they were great. I asked the girl at the counter if they were open for a little bit? She made a big production of looking at her watch and said, “for exactly 7 minutes”. Needless to say, I walked out the door, ordered my large bakery order from someone else, and tell everyone I can about this place and their bad customer service.

  3. I am trying to find a bakery that makes “beehive” pastry like the kind that Hans bakery in Anoka use to make do you make them?

  4. My daughter and my self came to visit a friend on my birthday and she bought me a birthday cake (white) yellow frosting and it sparkled.The best cake I have ever ate,light and airy I keep thinking about the taste it begs for more.and we live in New London Mn do you ship?
