Sue’s Deluxe Bake Shop (1319 Birch St., Eau Claire), with a wide array of homemade cookies, cinnamon rolls, and sweet danishes, takes the win for the eighth year in a row. With great care and concern for the community, Sue’s is always prepared with some fresh baked breads and buns. The Nostalgic Bean (1403 Lynn Ave., Altoona) sneaks its way into second place with mouth-watering, authentic French bakery goods, including shortbread, madeleines, and croissants. Great Harvest Bread Co. (4324 Southtowne Place, Eau Claire) bakes bread to nourish the soul with fresh-milled 100% whole grain flour – and you may even find a sweet treat for your pet! –Ashly Curtis
