"Our family has been enjoying Raphael's breads and other baked goods for 19 years. Always fresh and great tasting, I have no favorites. I am especially impressed that they give back to the community through supporting events and fundraisers."

"I am not from the area (I live near Nashville, TN) but the company I work for is in Bemidji. For the last few years I’ve been periodically ordering (via phone) sweets for the company office staff. Raphael’s has always done a great job on my orders for cookies, donuts, cakes and they do a great job of preparing and delivering the goodies for me. The ownership and staff are absolutely awesome, and my colleagues love the treats!"
