REVIEWS OF Johan's Pastry Shop IN Michigan

Jordan Miller

My wife and I stopped for breakfast and we were not disappointed! The selection of donuts were second to none and were topped only by their flavor. It's possible that they were the best donuts I've ever had. Most of the donuts cost $1.50 to $2 and the coffee was pretty good. There are a few tables inside and some picnic tables outside. When we are in the Petoskey area again we will definitely return.

Jakob McCaskey

Small corner shop with some of the best doughnuts I've ever had. Gotta try the danishes!

Tim Hogan

Nice small town bakery that we stop in to warm up. I had coffee and a muffin both great. Both henanced by the atmosphere. Great service too.

Bob Campbell

The best. Great pasteries, deserts, cakes. Do not pass this place if your in petoskey! This plase is a family tradition for over 20 years , they never let us down...

Barry Lewis

Best donuts I've had in years

Skip Allen

Just moved to a better location.... On Main Street in Harbor Springs. The grandkids love Johan's.

Andrea Hankins

Wonderful local bakery! Some of the best donuts and pastries I've ever had!

Lynne Oxley

Delicious donuts.

Scott Hanisch

Stopped in this beautiful, Hot, Sunday am, after leaving a cafe in Harbor Springs where a breakfast with eggs, meat, hash browns and toast was a reasonable $10. 1 Danish and 2 small frosted Pumpkin cookies at your bakery was $7.50!!!! OUCH. 3 times the price it should have been and if there weren't others in the bakery, I would have refused to pay that ridiculous amount. NEVER AGAIN.

samuel Adams

Their doughnuts melt in your mouth. If you are in the area stop by their you will not be disappointed. Try the sugar glazed doughnuts.

Linda Wines

Good old fashioned baked goods.

Mary Rodriguez

Delicious coffee and amazing pastries!

Ben O'Brien

It's gone downhill. Used to be a must do whenever we come to town, but no more. The bagels were sooo good about 3 years ago. Now they are barely better than Walmart bagels. The donuts are still good (only reason it isn't 1 star).

Bob Jowers

Good stuff!!

Ryan Krauss

Excellent donuts. Try the custard filled long johns.

James Gibbs

cake was very ordinary and the writing for the cake was illegible.

Jake St.Amour

The best donuts in the area!

Jason Pierce

Great people and great food!

Gerald Smith

I recently visited Las Vegas and went to the Cake Boss Bakery at the Venetian to try out their offerings. I can honestly say without hesitation that Clayton and his staff deliver a superior product at a much more reasonable price. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

George Domsic

Yummy yummy yum yum

Brian Kopinski

The blueberry donuts were revelatory. Everything else looked great too.

Angela Bishop

Best donuts and bagels anywhere, and I've eaten a lot of donuts. Big selection of donuts, muffins, cookies, and more. By far our favorite donut shop!

Luke Orth

Awesome baked goods

Rebecca Lynn Zynda

Mmmmm! Enjoyed my cinnamon apple pastry and homemade sour dough. Little pricey, $6.99 a loaf.

John Jordan

Doughnuts were ok, fair. Waiting staff not overly friendly. We would have saved a lot of money and gotten comparable at Meijer

Mark Kuehl

Always great donuts and rolls. Johan's has been here a long time with high quality baked goods. I always get the old fashioned sour cream glazed donut. The raised cinnamon roll is also delicious. They make a dough for their baked and fried rolls that the chain shops can only dream of. Well worth the stop for a roll and coffee or coffee cake or fresh bread to take home.

AJ Vans

Best pastries in northern Michigan!

Matt Simowski

Their pastries and coffee cakes are always fresh. My all time favorite is the long john cream and the cherry cream cheese coffee cake. And their customers service is awesome..

Kurt Hutchinson

Delicious donuts here, but get here early because the popular ones go quick

Vickey Hoxie

It's our favorite bakery

Liz McLean

Everything here is Delicious. I especially love their apple fritters and asiago cheese bagels

Best pastries, cakes and pies in town.

Marie Oxley

Good service. Going back tomorrow to finalize cake order with cake decorator.

The prices are a little high. Cool old school seating area watching highway 31. There is a random parrot in the corner.


2 pumpkin doughnuts 2 sour cream doughnuts $7.40 that’s insane

Maddie McLaren

Wide variety of yummy baked goods that seemed to be fresh.

Renee Penny

Lovely bakery!

Stephen Baker

Great donuts!


You can't beat the delicious treats from Johan's bakery!

Gafga Mach X

As soon as I walked in the door I felt like an intruder. The gentleman waiting on me greeted me gruffly, asked what I wanted before I even had a chance to look then hovered over me while I did. I felt rushed and unwelcome. After every donut I ordered I was asked 'anything else' making me feel like he wanted me gone, so I only got a few (far less than I intended on ordering) and got out the door as quickly as possible. Donuts were good though. Word to the wise, know what you want when you walk in so you dont waste any of their time being a customer!

Aaron Pieniozek

I was a bit disappointed to see the size go down and prices go up. It's still very delicious though. :)

John Overing

Delicious pastries, kind staff. Very happy bakery

Mike Bolen

I just died and went to heaven!

Jon Patton

I have been going to Johan's since the 60s and they never disappoint. There are one of the few full service family bakeries still operating. Everything they make is excellent.

Paul Dawson

They closed a great bagel place on M 119 and now serve junk bagels 1/2 mile away. Idiots!

Mia Addes

Best bakery in town!

Amber Lange, Ph.D.

Very good apple fritters and long johns. Been here several times over the past three years and always fresh and good. Donuts and fritters are average size and somewhat pricey but do taste good. Coffee is only average.

Michael Alexander II

Great donuts. A favorite of mine and my family.

Mark Troilo

Yummy!!! All I need to say! Great treats & great wait staff!! Try the Smiley Face Cookies!!! My favorite!!

Hard dry donuts with low flavor

Steve Johnson

Michael Adams

The best bagels. Good coffee too.

Al Blackburn

Limited parking, donuts good.

Janet VandenBerg

Okay - somewhat pricey

Dianne Riefler


Kasha Brackett

Wish it was still in Boyne but it's worth an early morniydrive to Petoskey.

Aaron Krytus

Yummy doughnuts. Good variety and delicious. They have cookies, doughnuts, muffins, cakes, pies, bagels, coffee, cappuccino, and cold beverages. There is no parking lot. You will have to parrallel park on the street. There are only 4 tables and 15 chairs total. There are also 2 x 4 person picnic tables outside. When purchasing a dozen there are small and large doughnuts. They are prices accordingly. There is no public restroom.

desmond hill

Great place for donuts and to take the kids.

Leslie Mccarty

Best donuts and coffee cakes ever!

Alex McHenry

Best pastry shop in Little Traverse Bay. The jalapeño cream cheese is phenomenal on an everything bagel. The donuts are amazing.. Pecan sticky rolls also incredible. Top marks!

Rachel DenBoer

Excellent bakery! Lots to choose from, great friendly staff! Highly recommend

Genny Segura

I was deeply saddened to learn that Georgy, the 48 year old parrot who enjoyed life at the bakery died. This happened 9 months after a State Agriculture official insisted on displacing Georgy to a pet store. Said the parrot didn't belong in a bakery even though he thrived there 40 yrs.

Daniel Darga

Sellection excellent pastry outstanding. Service (good) with a smile.

Katie Fraser

Johan's is my absolute favorite place to get donuts! If you like sugar and frosting, I highly recommend the Cream Filled Long John's. Johan's has been a family favorite for us for over 10 years, and every time I return to Petoskey I have to stop by for a donut. I don't think there's a single item on the menu that isn't delicious, you simply cannot go wrong with a stop at Johan's!

beth N Joe arnold

Awesome place. Very friendly, very good

Angela Backstrom

Amazing!! SO good! Their donuts were excellent!

Steve Alspaugh

Every time we are in Petoskey we make it a point to stop. Great selection of bread, donuts, cookies, & desserts. Prices are reasonable & service is good. Just get there early in the day if you want something specific.

Laurie Shank-Horaney

Best long johns ever!

Allison Case

This pastry shop is the best!! We are in Kentucky and had a client in the area we wanted to get a birthday cake to, they took the order and delivered right to them! So easy to work with!!! THANKS JOHAN'S!!


The donuts are fantastic and so are the bagels. No complaints here.

Best donuts in Petoskey. Get the chocolate cake donuts or creme filled eclairs. Yum.

Joe Burman

Can't get enough of their "Joe's Buns", or J Buns, as they call them now!

jim guess

Just drove 800 miles for their Old Fashioned donuts and Long Johns. (well also had a wedding too) but I used to stop there once a week after shift at NMH..great donuts

brenda scott

Always delicious doughnuts and pastries. Been enjoying them for over 40 years and never disappointed.

Patti Brown

My son and i stopped at a gas station on our way downstate last year and found these huge, amazing doughnuts. We tried to go there again when my husband was in the hospital down that way. We found the gas station but they were out of doughnuts. Later in the week my husband was getting discharged. I saw a small pastry shop and thought I'd pick him up a doughnut. When i walked in i knew immediately this was the source of those amazing doughnuts! Every case full of every doughnut, cookie and pie imaginable! They cost a little more than most places, but doughnuts are about double the size of others. I'll stop in again next time I'm down that way for sure.

Dave Dykstra

Great treats

Luna Vaughan


Jena Gray

Wonderful donuts!

Jonathon Zupancic

Best doughnuts in the state! Doughnuts are huge and so delicious!

Satina Santanen

The most delicious pastries ever and the up most politeness from employees.Everyone should make it a point to stop in.

matt lubbers

Mmm! Really friendly service, gave us a yummy free sample, chocolate coconut cookie

Mike Golling

I always stop here on my way to my vacation house in Petoskey. Everything is delicious especially the cranberry bagels!

Barry Lambert

Cakes are fabulous here. Never had an issue with the decorations either.

Nichole Foster

Love their homemade donuts, a locals favorite! Cakes, donuts, cookies, pastries and more!

Heidi Kelley

I've been getting donuts here for a decade, love them!

James Byrne

We went to pick up a custom birthday cake for a 16th birthday and when we went to go pick it up they had no idea what we were talking about. We talked on the phone with a lady telling her exactly how we wanted the custom cake and she said she'd have it ready. But when we went we got something very frustrating they had no idea what we were talking about and they didn't have a order for our cake. Very poor service would not recommend. We had to go to another bakery and pickup a regular cake. Very frustrating experience

Francis Esmonde-White

Expensive, slightly run down. Large portions, but not particularly tasty. Service wasn't very friendly. The parrot looked nice. On a busy street, with a few picknic tables outside.

kris johns

Cinnamon rolls are totally scrumptious

The Thirsty Whale Bakery

Thank you for the good treats! Highly recommended!

Stacey Nongueskwa

Favorite Pastry Shop in Petoskey Area!!! :)

Bruce wood

If you want good doughnuts, go wherever. If you want the best in the North, go to Johan's. After 30 years, the government made them take George away. George was their talking bird in a large cage at the main / original store in Petoskey.

Noah Suarez

Johan’s is a staple of Petoskey and the place for doughnuts and bagels. Their cinnamon rolls are very good, ask for a middle one. It can get very busy and the lobby is not organized. Be prepared to order when it is your turn.

Jay Fort

Excellent baked goods. Do yourself a favor and drop in, you will be glad you did.

Norman Dufrin

Maybe the best donuts that I have ever eaten

Henry H

Every thing is good there

Kelsey Osler

Yum! All of it :)

Mackenzie Jandernoa

I absolutely love cinnamon rolls and consider myself hard to impressive when it comes to them. My husband and I stopped here on a weekend trip and I am so glad we did. The cinnamon roll did not disappoint! It was flaky, soft and the icing was the perfect amount of sweet. We also had an old fashion sour cream doughnut and that too was out of this world. I can’t wait to go back!

Michelle Hingston

Yummy place to stop in for a coffee and donut.

Tina Rokos

Best baked goods in Petoskey

Kevin Skiba

OMG! Best bakery ever!

Kathrine Gray

I pulled a long black hair out of the frosting of my birthday cake while eating it at my birthday dinner. My mom has always sworn when she went in the back kitchen once to grab donuts for a work order that the kitchen was absolutely disgusting and I’m starting to believe this may actually be the case. I used to love their donuts and specifically ask for a cake from here for my birthday but now I’m not sure if I can stomach them anymore.

Sheri Carney

Oh! Yummy...pumpkin donuts!

James Palmer

Good donuts!

Linda B Green

We were given a sample of white cake that was as white as wedding cake batter, before we ordered a birthday cake. But when given a birthday cake, it had a yellow batter. We were told they don’t make yellow cakes on the day the replacement cake was supposed to be ready (as a white cake). However, when we called the day we cut into the birthday cake, a female worker said, “the yellow cake is as good as the white cake.” We did not receive another cake, but were given a refund. I think they are over-priced and the chocolate cake is not moist (purchased one on a different occasion). We ordered a white birthday cake because we were told it is moist (but it wasn’t white)...we are disappointed in their professionalism. Why couldn’t the worker tell us on the day we cut the cake and called that they don’t make yellow cakes?

Geoff Bendall

Very good doughnuts, pastries and other baked goods. Also serve coffee. While we were eating, there were several customers, some with large orders. Seating available inside as well as outdoors.

Nolan Williams

Johan's has delicious sweet rolls!

Kim Meyer

Best bakery in town. They have the best bagels, hands down.

Jennifer Gross

Every year, when we make our trek back up north from Kansas City, right after we unpack our bags, we head to Johan's. Best bakery in the world! You could sail across Lake Michigan standing on one of the long johns. Bagels are to die for! Apple fritters--yum!!!


There donuts are so delicious and the service was great!

Don McKercher

Bought strawberry rhubarb pie August 7th, 2018. Very excited as it was a gift for friends and that is their favorite pie. This was the WORST excuse for a pie! HORRIBLE!!! There was one tiny pice of undisguised fruit in the whole pie! It was all goo. Like a gel!! The whole pie!! Never buying anything there again!!!!

Rob Shafer

Don't go here! Your waistline won't like it... but your taste buds will. :-) Great donuts, bagels and some beautiful custom cakes on display.

Snake Plisken

Purchased a blueberry pie in September with the filling obviously coming from a Gordon's Food Service can. This place solely exists on a rapidly fading reputation. Donuts suffice and barely make the "good" mark; SAD. Johanns is done and over........................

Mike Cannon

Sorry to see employees wearing hilary clinton endorsements. My last visit will be today. My wifes national company will stop the twice a month orders also. No place for politics.

Devonda Benally

Bagels w/cream whip. Delicious

andrew stich

Very good

Karen Bowen

Best cinnamon buns and doughnuts! Get there early for fresh ones. A must stop when traveling through Petoskey!

Ginia Snyder

Bagel was outstanding. Coffee is ok, wish there were more peanuts on the peanut donut.

Spencer T

Great pastries, amazing service. I don't think it could be better.

A Ariano

Great fresh donuts! And bumpy cake too!

Risa Renae Harman

This is the bakery in Petoskey but everytime I go I am underwhelmed. Very expensive for not so great donuts and pies. Last time they shorted a donut. Wish there was another bakery in town.

Blister Burner

I've come to Johann's several times over the past couple years and arrive at the same conclusion every time. They serve day-old, stale donuts at full retail in their front display case. There's no way of knowing the difference until after payment. The establishment is clean and staff reasonably nice, but that's where it ends. A customer should NEVER question if a pastry is fresh. The fact that customers pay for Johanns failure to effectively manage their inventory is poor, and only one reason can explain why a donut shop would do that: greed. I will never return and encourage everyone to vote with their dollars and go elsewhere.

linda hogge

Over $8 for a donut ,small coffee and a cinnamon roll ,,I know the area has lots of money but I don't

Hope Poirier

Best donuts ever!!!!

Zac Smits

I love coming to Johan's. The people that server are so friendly. The Custard filled logs are delicious, the chocolate peanut butter slice will melt in your mouth, and the free cinnamon scroll that she gave us fresh out of the oven was magical. As you drive in or through the city, make sure you stop by Johan's!!! You won't be disappointed!!

june landers

Love the sweets

Pamela Lamoreaux-Gregory

A beautiful, birthday cake from Johann's never disappoints. Always moist cake and frosting is spectacular!
