You would never guess that Biff’s Pioneer House Bakery and Restaurant in Mooresville, Indiana was the start of something very, very good!

Every small business hopes for longevity. Unfortunately, many don’t achieve the long run or the type of fame that comes with creating a bakery item like this Morgan County bakery. But the owners really put their heart and soul into this place. The glass cases were full of delicious looking pastries. Don’t you agree?

Since 1956, this downtown bakery and cafe has been the local meeting place. You can feel it when you walk in the door. This is a community hub.

Locals come in, take “their” seats, and linger over cups of coffee. As in any small town cafe, the pot is always on. They share town gossip and discuss the big news of the day. Just as they have had for the past  sixty years.

As part of a larger group I didn’t have time for a full meal–but there is always time for the product that put Biff’s Pioneer House on the map. And, no, I don’t mean the biscuits and gravy (highly praised though they may be).

This small town bakery invented the Bismark! Those round, jelly or custard filled donuts without holes, yes, they were created right here! The owner’s father first made these mouth-watering pastries and now the family is carrying on the tradition. Yes, it has passed into the hands of family members as the years pass.

Tutti Fruitti, a fruit and raisin roll, pineapple, peach, cherry, and apple are a few of the delectable flavors that customers will find lining these bakery cases!

This is still a bakery, bismark famous or not, so expect awesome cakes (the banana cake looks particularly pretty) in addition to an assortment of cookies and other pastries. The hard part, as always, is in the deciding!
