What We Thought:
Let's be honest -- baked goods are given that name for a reason. They are good. Who doesn't love butter + sugar all rolled up into a pastry or bread product? Besides Gwyneth Paltrow of course.
Shirley's Bakery was our first ever breakfast out together, and we kept it pretty basic. I ordered the bear claw doughnut, and thought it was one of the best glazed-type doughnuts I've ever had. It was fresh and not too sickly sweet, and was quite large as well! Owen loves danishes, and he was more than satisfied with his choice. Sometimes danishes have that crunchy, dried-out glaze with some sad frosting on top, but none of those vague vending machine memories are found here (I'm not admitting anything here...).
What You Should Do: You should go. I keep wanting to go back there and try other things, but I already warned you about my breakfast issues earlier. Things on my to-try list include the rolls (supposedly the BEST for Thanksgiving) and the cinnamon rolls. As long as there are NO raisins in the cinnamon rolls. Raisins + cinnamon rolls is a serious abomination in my eyes.
