“we love everything about Rick’s Bakery. If you’re in town celebrating anything at all, go to Rick’s and get something special. Don’t miss their petit fors, cake with buttercream icing, blueberry cake donuts, apple fritters, or sausage rolls! This is certainly a Saturday morning favorite in town(note: not open on Sunday). You can also watch them decorate cakes here; free entertainment! ”
