Baker's Corner

The Baker's Corner: where we share with you the best baking secrets, recipes, sales, specials, strategies, events, tricks of the trade, stories, memories, and most of all lots of warmth and laughter. Why? Because we have always believed that like crafting quality food and bread, running a family-business is about creating moments and traditions to be enjoyed.

Our Store Is Moving

After 105 years in Park Addition, our store is moving. Like all stories, our story is forever in the making. It begins with Giulio Forti baking in Rome, moves to a century plus of baking Giulio's same bread in Park Addition, and now, a much shorter move to 2601 First Avenue. We leave with so many wonderful memories of Park Addition. It was home to four generations. Words cannot express our gratitude, memories or their meaning of those first 105 years. 

We move forward to follow our promise to you to provide handcrafted, made from scratch baked goods that compel us all to slow down and enjoy this life. True to that promise, after a century of being at your table, we are inviting you to our table. We look forward to providing you and our community with a full espresso bar, organic coffee, seating, an expanded lunch and dinner menu and all our baked goods. We will move into the former Amelia's and Binster's building on First Avenue. All deli items will be available to order to-go for in-store pick-up online. 

Come in, sit down, congregate, commemorate. We are really excited for this second century.

We will open our bakery and cafe on Tuesday, October, 23rd. Our deli will open Thursday, October, 25th. 

We look forward to continuing this tradition with you. 

Think Spring

The days are getting longer and spring fever is here. We take this season to envision how we can better share with you our century long tradition of hand-crafting baked goods from scratch. In 1913, our founder immigrated from Rome to begin this tradition. We are proud to say that we have grown from horse drawn carriages to online ordering. We take this time to explore our next adventure.

As we imagine the future, we offer you a chance to beat the winter blues and share your favorite Sunrise treat with family and friends. From now until Monday, February 19th, use the code THINKSPRING for twenty percent off your online order. Order your favorite potica product, biscotti or Sunrise cookie to share with family and friends. 

Enjoy! May good food always bring us together~

Happy Holidays ~ Forti Family 


We hope this special season is treating you well and is filled with friends, family and good food. Our elves are busy hand-crafting all of your Sunrise Bakery favorites. We love to be part of your family's holiday traditions.

As we round up our 104th year, we are thrilled to be baking and preserving an Iron Range favorite: potica. Our region's history is rich with stories of families and friends working together for a full day to carefully craft and hand-roll potica. Perhaps it is the way that these stories of collaboration and determination mirror much of this region's rich history that cultivates our love of this dessert. Or... maybe it's the honey, butter and walnuts. Either way, we are proud to be preserving this tradition. 

As you prepare for the weeks ahead, stop in or order online your favorite potica products: potica, potica coffee cake, potica bars. Prepare to stuff your stockings, treat your hostess, or gift your friends  and family with your favorite potica products. For local folks, call our store to special order all your holiday favorites including Tom & Jerry batter, snowflake rolls, coconut snowballs, our famous Italian bread, cookie trays and much more. 

From now until Monday, enter the code MERRY for 15% off your online order of any of our potica products. We recommend you order no later than Monday to ensure delivery for the holiday.
