512 N. John St., Palestine, Texas
Venue: Small town bakery begun in 1898.
Atmosphere: Quaint bakery shop with the old tin ceiling. Welcoming to stop in and browse. There is plenty of seating to enjoy your selections or you can get them to go. A number of antiques related to the business are on display. On the walls are photographs depicting the community at different points in time.
Offerings: Candies, cookies and other goodies.
Recommendations: Be sure to get several of a variety of items to sample. We enjoyed the pecan nuggets and the chocolate chip pecan cookies. Both would be do agains on a return trip. Be sure to take a catalog with you or check out their selections online at eilenbergerbakery.com.
Service: Friendly, helpful service. We enjoyed chatting with the employee about the history of the business and building. There is even a Texas Historical Commission placque for the bakery. Under the placque is an “Oil City Ironworks, Corsicana, Texas” embossing.
