Paul’s Bakery in Fredericksburg was one of the three superior businesses that tied for Specialty Food Shop in Fredericksburg Parent & Family magazine’s 2022 Family Favorites Winners. Right down to the last crumb, Paul’s is top-notch on everyone’s list. The third-generation family bakery was established half a century ago and has been serving doughnuts, bread, brownies, eclairs, cakes, cinnamon buns, cookies, cupcakes, pastries and pies to loyal customers ever since.
In the mood for a fresh doughnut with that morning coffee? Paul’s has a variety of them, and you can enjoy one, a dozen or even a Donut Party Tray. There’s no better way to celebrate a special occasion or any other event than with Paul’s eight-inch round cakes, which can be written on while you wait.
The best way to beat that craving for a cookie is to stop by the bakery. The sweet aroma will lead you to cut-out sugar cookies called Sandy Doos, which consist of a couple of richly baked cookies that are packed with a delicious cream inside. Paul’s cookies are meant for sharing, and the party trays are filled with the mouthwatering treats.
Another way to whet the appetite is with the sweetness of a Cookie Cake. If pastries hit the spot, then you’ll love the brownies, raisin buns, crème horns, coffee cake and more. For a “slice of heaven,” the pies are always a winner, including fruit, meringue, crème and pecan. Paul’s also offers freshly baked banana nut bread and puff shells.
With Paul’s Bakery being such a longstanding institution in the community, there’s no better way to show off this family favorite than by purchasing apparel. The bakery offers logo T-shirts from $20 and logo beanies for $20.
