Best Bakery: Halepaska's Bakery
If anyone tells you "you won't like it" and it's from Halepaska's Bakery, they're probably lying.
For three years running, the family-owned shop has been named to multiple bests, including best dessert and best kolache.
Aside from the sugar and flour, who knows what else they put in their treats. All that matters is that if you need an afternoon cookie or a custom, three-tiered wedding cake, this place has you covered.
Co-owner Tom Halepaska said he is thankful for the recognition and is glad his hungry customers keep coming back for more.
In addition to selling desserts and other baked goods, both Victoria locations also serve soup, salads and sandwiches.
Halepaska's is open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sunday.
