The bakery had been closed for more than a year after a blaze in January 2007 caused $100,000 worth of damage. That was a blow to Tulsa’s confection-loving community, who had counted on Ann’s for custom-made cakes, pasteries and other goodies since it opened in 1938.
We went to Ann’s for breakfast on Saturday morning. I had a cream-filled bismark, a cinnamon roll and a cream horn. Emily had a glazed doughnut and a cream horn. They tasted heavenly.
Ann’s offered much more than that, as these photos of the display cases illustrate. It was difficult to choose what to eat.
Fresh coffee is available near one of the display cases. So is a refrigerated cooler loaded with milk or soda.
There’s no place to sit down to eat the doughnuts or pastries, but the staff bags everything up for you. Ann’s is clean and bright, and the staff is quick to get you what you need.
Here are some of the cake’s Ann’s makes on display. That’s a bunch of cupcakes on the left.
Ann’s is just north of the Interstate 244 interchange at Harvard. There’s plenty of parking on the side of the building. Its hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Its phone number is (918) 834-2345.
