Best Bakery

A large selection of homemade cookies, cakes, and bars makes Sue’s Deluxe Bake Shop (1319 Birch St., Eau Claire) a must-stop for your bakery needs. In addition to sweets, they also sell savory onion rolls and delicious hamburger buns. Great Harvest Bread Company (4324 Southtowne Place, Eau Claire) bakes bread “the way it ought to be” by using traditional methods that create breads that are one-of-a-kind. If you’re looking for a unique bakery, look no further than The Nostalgic Bean (1403 Lynn Ave., Altoona). They serve from-scratch, authentic French pastries along with a selection of homemade soups, sandwiches, and baked goods. –Steph Mickelson
