Alma Bakery and Sweet Shoppe in Alma, Kansas shares an 1886 native stone building that has formerly housed the Wabaunsee County Bank, a general store and a barber shop. The former vault now provides storage.
The interesting old building may be one of the less attractive buildings on Missouri Avenue (Alma's downtown), but as soon as I walked through the door, I knew I was going to like Alma Bakery.
It smelled wonderful!
The owner, Jeanette Rohleder-Supernaw and her son were friendly and when Jeanette saw me taking a photograph, invited me into the back to take a picture of the vault left over from the days that the building housed the Bank of Wabaunsee County. Jeanette purchased the Alma Bakery & Sweet Shoppe in 2000 and uses recipes that were handed down by her German Grandmother.
We left Alma Bakery with cookies, various types of nut brittles, cinnamon buns and bread. The prices are very reasonable, only 2 for a loaf of delicious bread or $3.50/dozen for cookies. The peanut butter cookies are my favorite.
Alma Bakery & Sweet Shoppe produces a wide vriety of cookies, breads, pies, fudge and sweets, but doesn't make everything every day. Call ahead to request your favorites.
