1st Place: Sue’s Deluxe Bake Shop
2nd Place: Great Harvest Bread Co.
3rd Place: Bohemian Ovens
There’s a clear choice when it comes to bakeries in the Valley, and y’all don’t mess with the best. In fact, these three bakeries have ranked in the top three for five years in a row. Sue’s Deluxe Bake Shop (1319 Birch St., Eau Claire) offers Danish Kringles, sweet rolls, custard angel food cakes, top-notch donuts, and more, all made from scratch. They’ve followed the same recipes for more than 40 years, and you keep coming back. In a similar style, Great Harvest Bread Co. (4324 Southtown Place, Eau Claire), has brought you fresh, quality bread using the same methods for more than 30 years. They grind their whole wheat every day. Bohemian Ovens (905 Martin Road, Bloomer) creates European-style hard-crusted bread in an authentic brick oven. — Katy Macek
