Today, we’re checking out Ida’s Pastry Shoppe in Jenison – stop #3 on our Mom & Pop Donut Stop Tour of West Michigan. (Want to know what our first two stops were? Keep reading.)

I’m enjoying a glorious, glazed apple fritter from Ida’s as I’m typing this article, so please excuse my potential overuse of exclamation points!

Ida’s Pastry Shoppe has been part of our community since 1981, more than four delectable decades.

One customer I talked to by the donut case told me she loves the chocolate-covered cinnamon roll, so I added one of those to my box too.

Other Stuff:

The selection is vast – so you might want to grab more than one. Choose cinnamon rolls or a loaf of raisin bread, maybe grab a pack of cookies, a dozen donuts, or some muffins.

If you’ve got a special occasion on the horizon, Ida’s cakes will have everyone talking. And those cookies? They put them right by the door so you don’t forget to grab a pack before you leave.

I asked what their most popular item was and they said the cinnamon rolls have been flying off the shelves.

The Crowd: Movers and Groovers

Ida’s Pastry Shoppe has some no-nonsense patrons on weekday mornings. During the short time I was there, everyone who came in knew exactly what they wanted, ordered, and were back on their way in a matter of minutes.

I’m not a regular, but now I want to be! The kind and helpful employees answered my questions and greeted each person who walked in with a friendly “good morning!” Ida’s place is all about the sweet stuff.

The Standout: Little Red Ribbons

Sure everything they back is fresh and delicious, but what sets Ida’s Pastry Shoppe apart from the crowd is their presentation.

They wrapped my box of donuts with a little red ribbon before I left – an above and beyond touch that made me feel extra special for stopping by.

Whether you’re grabbing a box of donuts or ordering a custom cake, you’re in for a treat every single time.

Ida’s team takes pride in what they do, and it shows.
