From-scratch baking is no small feat. To stock their shelves with bread, pastries, and cakes when they open their doors, bakers often start their days while the rest of us are still sleeping.

And for Southwest Michigan customers, local bakers do not make our purchase decisions easy: with their cases piled high with mouth-watering treats, it’s hard not to bring home one (or two) of everything.

In our best restaurants of Kalamazoo voting, bakeries were one of our tightest races: proof that all of these are mega-talented and delicious.
