Our bakers start work before the sun rises each day to ensure that every batch is as fresh as possible before it gets to you. The warm smell of baking often escapes onto the street before we've even opened. We're dedicated to kick starting your morning with warm muffins, fresh donuts, tasty rolls and a cup of hot coffee!
We have some of the most talented and creative decorators in Central MN, with many years of experience. They can take your ideas and turn them into fabulous art work with great taste for your wedding, birthday or other special occasion.
We also offer comfortable seating inside our bakery with free wifi at both the Cold Spring and Waite Park locations! Finish up a bit of of work or meet up with a group of friends and enjoy a cup of coffee and a sweet treat! The Cold Spring location offers outside seating during the summer as well.
The Cold Spring Bakery, originally known as the Home Bakery was started in 1946 by Melvin and Floss Schurman. The original bakery (Mann's Bakery) was on Red River Avenue where the Red River Inn's kitchen is currently. The present building was built in 1949 with additions in 1968, 1971 and the mall being added in 1985. Additional production space was added in 2000. In 2013, we added our second retail location with the Cold Spring Bakery Connection in Waite Park
