Next time your in downtown Royal Oak make sure to step back in time by stepping into one of the finest bakeries around - Hermann's Bakery!
This family owned bakery is old school and they still make everything the old fashion way like back in the day. I spoke to Richard Hermann who filled me on a bit of the history behind this Royal Oak staple.
Richard's father George Hermann started working in the bakery owned by Gus Dondero in 1922
He then became an operating partner in 1929 and bought the business outright in 1942.
The bakery has been owned and operated by The Hermann's every since.
Richard also mentioned that his father help design a number of the neighborhood layouts in Royal Oak including the Pingree neighborhood which is just northeast of downtown RO.
Hermann's offers a rotating menu of 60 different breads - 30 various rolls - and dozens of other breakfast and baked goods that blow away anything you are going to get at the big name coffee and pastry shops around town.
Plus the staff at Hermann's are nicer than the pies they make fresh everyday single day.
With all the new restaurants and shops on the strip now Hermann's is easy to miss.
Stop in and pick up some bread, cookies or a pie - and tell em MOTORCITYBLOG sent you over to say hello!
