The Wisconsin Bakery In The Middle Of Nowhere That’s One Of The Best On Earth
Pulaski is a small town of about 3,500 people up in the northeastern part of the state. It’s home to one of the largest Polish festivals in the world. It’s also where you’ll find Smurawa’s Country Bakery.
This small, family-owned bakery is very popular in the area on Fat Tuesday, when people line up for their paczki. But if you only sample Smurawa’s wares once a year, you’re totally missing out.
The bakery itself has been open for 20 years, but the family has been perfecting Polish specialties like paczki in their family for generations. Last year, they sold more than 30,000 of the donuts.
Smurawa's has a large indoor seating area, so while you can definitely just stop in and grab your sweets to go, you can also grab a coffee and settle in for some delicious treats for a bit.
They're known for the paczkis, but Smurawa's does a whole lot more and it's all beyond delicious. There's care and attention in everything they make and the quality shines through.
If sweet isn't your thing, the bread here is out of this world and so good that local spots stock it for their hot ham and rolls Sunday specials.
Bread baking is totally different from pastry-making, but Smurawa's excels at both.
No matter what you're craving, you'll find something here to satisfy. There's always interesting and inventive flavor combinations (go in fall for the pumpkin danish) as well as old classics.
Places like Smurawa's that are old-school, do-it-by-hand bakeries are few and far between these days. They use recipes passed down through generations and perfected by years in the business.
Superior quality and flavor combined with really great customer service is what makes a trip here an absolute must-do. It's getting absolutely delicious food while supporting a locally-owned business.
Beyond the sweet, you can often find savory here, as well. From home-made pierogis to Czarnina sweet and sour soup, you can find the stuff you remember your grandma making.
Grab a few things to take home, but also remember to order from here for you big events. From birthday cakes to wedding dessert bars and so much more, Smurawa's provides the kind of stuff your guests will be talking about for years to come.
Just a bit out of the way, but totally worth the drive, Smurawa's is a small-town bakery that keeps people coming back for more.
Smurawa’s Bakery is located at 204 E Pulaski St, Pulaski, WI 54162. They are open Tuesday – Friday 5:30 am to 5 pm, Saturday from 5:30 am to 2 pm and Sunday from 7 am to 12 pm. They are closed on Mondays.
