Owned by the Nimmow family, who channel long-loved family recipes with Amish roots, Golden Days Bakery proffers a panoply of preservative-free confections that are made from scratch each day. Moist fruit pies ($4.25 for mini, $8.50 for large) boast local notoriety for their tasty fillings that include rhubarb strawberry, pecan, and pumpkin. Diverse grains assemble into a bounty of fluffy breads ($2.95–$3.25) such as homemade dinner rolls, health-packed flax seed, cinnamon-swathed monkey bread, and apple, cherry, or cream-cheese danishes that speak perfect English. Mouthwatering cookie classics ($4.75/dozen) such as sugar, chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin quell crunch cravings among sweet teeth and very hungry hippos, and even the pickiest appetites are sure to find appeasement in assorted treats such as cashew brittle, Oreo truffles, or caramel pecan bars.
