Best Bakery

1st Place: Great Harvest

2nd Place: Obsession Chocolates

3rd Place: Sue’s Deluxe Bake Shop

For the second year in a row, Great Harvest, on Eau Claire’s south side, comes in first place. My wife and I head over once a week to get the best scones in town (mixed berry for my wife and cinnamon chip for me) to go along with our weekly loaf of bread (which seems to stay fresh forever). I take advantage of the free cinnamon bread slices and free chocolate chip turtle cookie samples, too. I really, really look forward to this weekly trip! Obsession Chocolates opened their doors on Barstow Street (tempting the V1 staffers on a regular basis) not only to showcase coffee, lunches, and chocolate creations, but also baked goods like French bread, turnovers, and (mmmm) caramel pecan rolls. And don’t neglect to head over to Birch Street to Sue’s for the best custard angel food this side of the great beyond. — RR
