If you are traveling along the upper Mississippi’s Great River Road south of the Twin Cities, circle the tiny town of Stockholm on your map. It is home not only of the Stockholm Pie Company, but of a bakery-cafe called Bogus Creek. It’s a charmingly helter-skelter place with seats indoors and out and a menu of terrific sandwiches, soups, and out-of-this world breads.

Fine egg dishes are available at breakfast, including once called Bogus hash, which is eggs scrambled with ham, onion, and pepper and topped with cheese; but the real reason to come for breakfast is to eat anything baked: sticky buns and sweet rolls, muffins and scones, and a unique item known as a Swedish donut.

Whether it actually is Swedish, we cannot say, but it’s mighty interesting: croissant dough coiled up and completely blanketed with cinnamon sugar.

The lunch menu features crepes and pastas accompanied by fresh-baked bread baskets, tall cold-cut sandwiches broiled with cheese, and a terrific one-third pound hamburger.

The beverage list includes beer and wine, Spring Grove soda pop, root beer floats, and genuine chocolate malted milk shakes.

We like the motto of Bogus Creek: “Our food is real.”
