Bakeries are a great place to visit if you're looking for delicious pastries or baked goods. While you could easily swing by a grocery store for some delightful treats, there's something about freshly-baked, hand-crafted goods that are worth the purchase. Plus, you could be exposed to unique creations and exciting flavors you won't find anywhere else in the country. These establishments may also sell sandwiches, coffee, tea, confections, and other tasty offerings.

That's why Taste of Home updated its list of every state's best bakery. The roundup includes family-owned joints, cake shops, delis, specialty markets, historic businesses, and much more.

According to the website, Washington's top bakery is Sluys Poulsbo Bakery! Here's why this family-run spot was selected:

"This nomination for best bakery came from Elizabeth Bramkamp of Gig Harbor, Washington, and we agree. Sluys Poulsbo Bakery has been family-run since the early 1960s, making all of their breads and pastries in small batches by hand. Their intriguing breads include Norwegian Black and Cardamom Orange. They also hold a doughnut-eating contest—the doughnut dubbed 'King Olaf' weighs three pounds!"

You can find this bakery at 18924 Front St. NE, Ste 104 in Poulsbo.
