If you’re craving some good old Hoosier hospitality and the made-from-scratch taste of gooey, freshly-baked pastries, head to Linne’s Bakery and Cafe to receive all this and more. This quaint, charming Shelbyville staple has become a household name in the area and embodies true Midwestern charm.
Linne’s Bakery and Cafe is committed to using only the best available products in all of their baked goods. The goal of the shop is to match customer service to the superior quality of the food, and the steady flow of happy customers confirms Linne’s is doing something right. They regularly research new formulas and recipes to provide their loyal clientele with exciting new options as well as the time-tested favorite stand-bys.
This charismatic Shelbyville gem rivals any Indianapolis restaurant in food, service, and atmosphere. It dates all the way back to 1890, when it was born as a wholesale bread company in Danville, Illinois. As the 1930s rolled around, the son of the owner saw the great potential the bread company had, so he packed up and moved the operation to Shelbyville, where Linne’s Bakery and Cafe became an official part of Shelbyville history.
Certified Master Baker Bill Moore purchased the shop in 1984, and since then, he and his wife Diane have lovingly grown the small shop into a full-fledged, thriving retail business full of incredible smells and cheery workers. Bill lives up to his title of Master Baker; in 2005, he was grated the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly aboard the USS Ronald Regan and serve as the official mentor for culinary specialists on board through US Navy Adopt-a-Ship program.
Bill and Diane have cultivated their booming business by tending to both the bakery and cafe equally; both menus are inventive, mouth-watering, and boast a wide variety of irresistible choices for every palette.
In the bakery, you can expect to find delectable treats such as the French Cream Coffee Cake and any muffin variety you can imagine, including strawberry cream cheese and whole grain pineapple. And of course, what bakery would be complete without beautiful special-occasion cakes readily available? For a peek at the masterpieces Linne’s has created, from wedding to birthday to graduation concoctions, visit the shop’s website.
And if you’re hungry for more than a sweet treat, check out the cafe, where lunch on the go has never been so tasty. From the pretzel sandwich (roast beef, turkey or ham piled high on a soft warm pretzel) to the Myer’s Barbeque Sub, you’re sure to leave with a full and satisfied belly.
Linne’s Bakery and Cafe is also a great choice for your next outing with friends or special occasion. The Birthday and Tea Rooms add a special, elegant touch to any meal. If you love tea, don’t miss your chance to sip from a china cup in Linne’s historic Victorian Tea Room in charming downtown Shelbyville. It’s an authentic old-world experience you can’t find anywhere else, especially if you love tea, scones, and finger sandwiches.
