Day 288: The Baker's Wife

You’ll have some time to digest your Fatty Lumpkins lunch while you drive from Muskegon to Grand Haven. Good thing because you’re definitely going to want to save room for dessert…or breakfast…or snack…when you find your way into The Baker’s Wife.

Grand Haven itself has a cute downtown area full of small shops, even another location for Glik’s. But, the Baker’s Wife was a true stand-out for me.

baker's wifeIn the mood for muffins? The blueberry was fantastic (possibly even better than Blackberry Market?- I’ll need to do another taste-test of both!). The cinnamon rolls looked incredible, but I passed them up for the soft-pretzels.

And that, my friends, is the reason why I may be making a 3 hour drive back to Grand Haven in the very near future.

The pretzels rock. How much so? After taking my first bite before leaving the bakery, I went back and ordered two more. I realized later that night that I should have ordered two dozen more.

I didn’t ask if they ship them out of state, but I’m definitely considering it.

Because we hadn’t made it to Saugatuck yet I didn’t realize the significance of The Baker’s Wife serving Uncommon Ground coffee. Sigh, now I know. (that post is yet to come). Just be sure to order a cup of coffee with your pretzels & treats.

If you’re from Michigan and the the pasteries at The Baker’s Wife taste familiar, it’s because they’re actually a second location- the first is the Village Baker in Spring Lake.
