We put a list together so you know where to go the next time you need a fresh loaf of bread, an eye popping birthday cake, or just a good breakfast to start the day.
Here’s our Top 5 Bakeries:
1) Stellas Kitchen & Bakery
2525 1st Ave N
At Stella’s, comfort food is the name of the game . Although you can grab a bite there any time of the day, her specialties are the baked goods that are cooked up fresh every morning. Make sure you grab some of the delicious cookies, just like Mom used to make. With delicious Cinnamon rolls, caramel rolls, and sour cream coffee cake, it just doesn’t get any better than this.
2) Grains of Montana
926 Grand Ave
Nielsen Farms has been growing the highest quality spring wheat in Nashua, Montana since 1965. So it’s no wonder that Grains of Montana’s signature breakfasts, hearty sandwiches and thick-crust pizzas are some of the freshest in town. Commercial bakeries buy wheat and flour from large corporate grain companies that use mix a variety of types and grades of wheat to make it as cheap as possible. But at Grains of Montana, they grow all of our own wheat and have it specially milled just for them. Plus, they don’t use any fillers or stabilizers, making Grains of Montana the home of the freshest bread in town.
