Cops & Doughnuts - 1


Clare, Michigan's most famous institution is Cops & Doughnuts. The location had housed the city's bakery since 1896. Several years ago it was on the verge of going out of business. All nine members of the town's police department bought it and turned it into what you see here. The baked goods are fabulous (lots of things besides doughnuts), the theme is cute and it has become immensely popular. Other locations have opened in Michigan and Indiana.

There is an adjacent diner and a shop selling all sorts of cutsie-poo themed merchandise. More about that and the cop-owners tomorrow.

Great name for the bakery. I remember seeing a cop sitting in a Dunkin Donuts parking lot in NH watching the cars drive trying to nab someone for speeding.

Cops and donuts seem like the perfect pairing Bob 😃

There's a donut shop in our area called Ex-Cop Donut Shop...

What a clever idea! I'm glad it is such a success and looking in those display cases, I can see why. There are some tasty looking things in there.

That is a good idea- and a welcome thing that it has more than doughnuts!

I want one of those pineapple upside down cakes! What a great idea that is for them to have bought the business.

I admire the policemen's ability to poke some fun at themselves with this name.
