A Little History Goes a Long Way
Linda's Bakery has been serving La Crosse County since 1973. That's the year Linda purchased the bakery from Harold Hetland. Linda worked night and day to make her bakery into the success it has become today.
Ten years later, in 1983, Linda’s Bakery moved to their current location on Highway 16. While Linda retired in 2008, her family still owns and operates the bakery.
Currently, Linda's Bakery has over 70 employees, some full-time, others part-time, and all essential to the business. On our busiest days, we serve over 1,000 bakery customers!
There are a variety of treats and sweets, so choosing what to buy might not be as easy as you think!
Here are just some of the delicious items that we offer:
· Breads, buns, and dinner rolls
