America’s Favorite Hometown Bakeries

Every neighborhood has one. You know the spot. It’s been there, serving up the same sweets, forever. You’ve driven by and routinely stopped in dozens of times. You know the aromatic smell and smiling faces that will greet you when you walk through the door. It’s woven so deeply into the fabric of your community that you hardly even notice it—until a visitor asks where to get the best slice of pie in town. Then you remember you’ve got something special worth bragging about.

From a homey diner tucked off I-81 in Virginia to the oldest bakery in Texas and a cabin presiding over the shores of Lake Michigan, the bakeries in this roundup couldn’t be more different. The one thing they have in common? They’re an essential piece of the local DNA, part of the heartbeat of their communities. They don’t need international accolades or trending Instagram hashtags. Thanks to the love and support of their communities, they’re doing just fine. Every establishment bringing sweets and love to their community deserves a round of applause. The bakeries on this list are the ones you raved about most.
