There are times when you just crave something sweet. When you are at home you can easily head over to your favourite bakery, but traveling can make it more difficult to satisfy your cravings. Which bakery is best?
Well, that’s a matter of personal opinion, but any one of these will give your sweet tooth a treat. So, if you are planning a trip to Niagara Falls, particularly the US side, this list is for you.
7927 Niagara Falls Blvd.
Niagara Falls, NY
Originally opened in 1920, this bakery, with an Italian flair, continues to be run by family members today. From delicious fresh baked bread that is perfect for sandwiches when you plan to picnic at the falls to donuts, cakes, biscuits, biscotti, and even homemade pasta, there is something for everyone at Di Camillo.
For a real treat, try some of their homemade jams and marmalades, made from fresh fruit using pure cane sugar, smeared on toast. Although they are a local store, they have developed a reputation across the United States for outstanding baked goods. As a result, they do offer gift baskets, tins, and more that can be shipped.

Less than 5 km from the fabulous Falls view hotel, the Portage Bakery is at a location that is ideal for stopping by for a quick sweet treat. They offer everything from cupcakes the children will love to mouth-watering peanut butter brownies, gingerbread biscuits, cappuccino Nanaimo bars, cakes and more. They also serve fresh baked bread and buns, salted meat, and a variety of cheeses, as well as plenty of great homemade pastas.

It should come as no surprise that Frankie’s offers a large variety of donuts, including glazed, red velvet, peanut butter, pumpkin spice, cherry, sour cream and much more. However, the locals who often frequent the place say that the fluffy and creamy Boston Crème donut is the best one on the menu.
Open 24 hours a day, they also serve tasty pizzas, subs and wings as well as offering a full breakfast menu that is crammed with fantastic foodstuffs that are well worth the astonishingly low prices. Although it is not in the more touristy area of the Falls, and is definitely no frills, it is a donut lovers paradise.
