Honey Bunns and Joe's Bakery can be tricky to find, but its worth the effort. You head up North Circle Dr. from town center and about 1/4th mile up on the right you will see a tall sign that proclaims Bakery. Walk about 50 yards along a dirt trail and voila, you are at the bakery. The "hot" sticky honey buns are definitely the attraction here. Definitely not for those on a diet, but it is sure is a treat. Bagels, cakes and more can be found in the pastry case. There is limited indoor and outdoor seating..
