Have you been to these Cleveland Bakeries?

I talked with a local coffee shop owner, Charlie Eisenstat and picked his brain about the best bakeries in Cleveland.


Cleveland Bagel Company

4201 Detroit Ave.
Cleveland, OH 44113

“Our mission is to make something really great to eat. For us, that means making a really great, Cleveland-style bagel.”

Charlie had nothing but great things to say about Cleveland Bagel Company and he has been working with them from their inception. I can also confirm, their bagels are delicious. If you are on the west side, they are the best on the West Side for sure.

6501 Detroit Ave., Cleveland, OH 44102

“At Brewnuts we combine the hospitality of the corner donut shop with the comfort of your favorite watering hole. We encourage you to belly up to the bar and stay awhile.Brewnuts

Brewnuts is the lovechild of two Clevelanders – Shelley & John Pippin – who gave up their jobs working for “The Man” to pursue their three favorite things: donuts, beer and Cleveland.

Long story short, one night Shelley bolted up in bed and asked John what he thought about the idea of making craft beer based donuts. After a long pause he said “I like that.” The next day we went out and bought a countertop fryer and got busy hatching our plan to make Cleveland’s most unique and delicious donuts.”

Jack Frost Donuts


Jack Frost is a very unique place. Located at a very confusing intersection for your first visit, it is a tiny building with a small parking lot. Inside their cases and on their racks are some of the most extravagant donuts you will ever find. We often include it on a trip to the zoo. You will be more than full with just one, but get a few to take home, they keep pretty well.
