If your like me, life gets busy and you forget to do many of things that are on the to do list. So we are sending out a friendly reminder to make sure you get your items ordered for Thanksgiving (pies, dinner rolls, donuts, and whatever whatever items need to be on that breakfast and lunch table!) and as an added bonus you are supporting your local celiac safe bakeries! As you may know this year has been rough on small independently owned family businesses, and ours has been no exception, so we are anxiously awaiting hearing from you!

Call to order at 320-259-7105

Orders placed by Wednesday are super helpful to us to plan our baking schedule

Cooler Temps, New Stickers and Happier Customers

Gosh, we feel like we have been on a never ending treadmill with all the shipping troubles we have had in the past few months. Now, if you know me, you know I do not enjoy treadmills…AT ALL. So this has been an experience we are keeping our fingers crossed we don’t have to go through again.

When Covid hit, we wanted to make sure everyone knew we would do whatever it took to be here for you. Gluten free is hard enough to find, but there is something about walking into a grocery store, when you need to feed your family members (I was that same mom staring at those empty shelves for my family as well) and not being able to find any on the shelves. It gives you a sinking feeling, and we already had enough sinking feelings in our life at the time.

We did not expect that what was once a shipping company that reliably got the food to you next day, would suddenly be experiencing triple their volume in shipping and not be able to get the packages out in a timely manner. This made for a soggy mess when the customers got their orders.

The shipping company has slowed down, and started to get a handle on “the new normal” and we have purchased these happy new stickers that say “perishable” on them. This and the fact that we are hand writing the words “food” on the sides and top of the boxes, well this along with the cooler temps, has made for a few weeks of very successful shipping.

We are certain there will be some bumps in the road but each week we there seems to be smoother sailing up ahead! Finally!!!! You cant even imagine what it did to our small business week after week to get frustrated customers on the end of the phone line or email line who felt they might not order again because their food did not arrive until 6 days later and was not in great shape. It broke our hearts, we wanted to pull down the site, but even through the frustration we had many of you ask us to keep going with it so you had options, and a chance at getting food that was safe and quality for your family to eat. We listened and did our best, but we know a lot of times, our best just did not do well enough.

While we always tried to make it right, we know that this doesnt mean you will trust us again to order from us. We get that. Some of you had more than 1 bad delivery, which makes it even more challenging. We hope that you will give it one more chance with the cooler temps.

We are offering $10 off shipping THIS WEEK ONLY. Coupon Code: Freeshipping

We ship our orders on Tues and Thursdays (by noon) so make sure if you would like to order that now is the time.

Mini Donut Day! August 8th 10am – 12pm

There is always a certain excitement in the air that goes through the bakery when we start to plan the next big Mini Donut day!

We love the customers it brings out from near and far, but more than that we love the smiles from the kids, the moms and dads who get to bring their celiac kids to a special event, that they cant do at fairs across the state (okay okay we know there are no fairs this year but you know what we mean!) and the smiles, and hugs we get from so many of you who we dont get to see all that often.

We are serving up some hot, fresh and amazing donuts again! They are only $5 a bag and so worth the drive. Ask those customers who put off weekend plans to make this their weekend plan <3.

Come one come all, we have a beautiful city, with lovely parks, the Mississippi river running through it, we have bistro sets outside the store, and we have lots of smiles and yummy treats (even besides the donuts!!!) so make sure you stock up. From pizzas, to garlic bread, buns and cupcakes, there so just so many choices!!!!

Get those calendars marked, get the car filled up with gas and get the family ready… we got mini donuts to eat!

Cant wait to see you all!!!!

Struggles with Shipping

10 Ways Boxes Destroy Your Life

As a small business, we know our customers trust is the most important thing we can have, and when we work as hard as we have for many years to build that trust up…well it just does something to your heart and mind when you find your business is being hurt one shipping box at a time.

We also know hard it is to find a gluten free bakery that you trust AND that tastes good. Many of you across Minnesota have found that in us, and we dont take that trust lightly. We have worked, and worked on perfecting our shipping processes, packaging, to ensure that you get the product just as they should be when they arrive at your house.

We bake them fresh, ship them hot and expect them to arrive to you within 24 hours in excellent condition.

Week after week we ship out many orders to you our customers, our extended family, and lately we have been hearing from several of you the shape and horror stories in which your boxes are arriving. We have refunded much money and we have re sent MANY shipments because your happiness and satisfaction is worth far more than any amount of money we may have made on a sale.

We can not tell you how saddened we are about the situation. We have debated pulling down our shipping options all together but many of you have requested us to not do so, we are currently working on finding another reasonably priced shipper to keep the costs down for us and you. We are working with our current company who ships and asking them to resolve these issues, but they seem to keep getting worse instead of better.

While we are never in the business of making excuses, we are left again scratching our heads, while we realize that most of you know this is not something that we can control, it does not help that some of your first impressions of our food is that of a complete mess, that is never EVER the impression we want to leave anyone with.

We can only apologize, tell you we are working on the issue and ask for your grace. Please let us know if there is an issue with your food and we will do our best to take care of it on our end. We have worked relentlessly to be the bakery you trust and look to when your family needs some yummy and safe food, and dont want you faith in us to wane as we work to find another shipping company who can help us deliver a product to you as it was sent from our store.

It is our honor to serve you and we want to keep doing so for many years to come.

Jessi and Staff
