2009-03-22 22:51:05   Beckmann's bakery was a totally alright place until they sold it. After it became Brendan's, the new owner skimped on everything, using cheap bullshit ingredients to make poor quality versions of the old foods for the same price. —

I've been a loyal devotee for over fifteen years now, and I'm among many who are celebrating Beckmann's 25 years in business by congratulating them on baking the finest loaves and pies around! Rock on, Beckmann's! I look forward to shelling out a few dollars at Shopper's Corner for the hearty goodness that is your bread! - Mitch —
