Bars Bakery is a family-owned local business run by the founder and previous owner of Swede Hollow Café, Sandi Younkin, and her daughter, Kara Younkin Viswanathan. True to their Minnesotan roots, they saw possibility and versatility in the humble bar, and decided to celebrate the bar by using local and organic ingredients whenever possible.
The caramel rolls are to die for, and talked about all around town (haven't you heard?) I haven't yet been able to walk out of the shop without a cookie, a bar or a scone thus far. The menu is ever changing and creative. Sandi and Kara's approach to baking is refreshing, as it gets tougher to find great pastries that taste homemade these days. Holiday pies and cookies are perfect to pick up and bring home on the go. Bars Bakery will provide catering service for larger parties or business meetings. They also have a great line of packaged food products that are produced locally and organically.
