Stopped in on our way to Boonville. After a 630am start at Windsor and some cold temps, we'd pedaled up a bit of an appetite. Papa Jakes greeted us w/ hot coffee and fried dough. The marshmallow fluff filled long john came recommended by a young man we rode w/ on the trail...very good choice. The white iced cake was a fine sample as well. Their plain glazed are fried a bit lighter than most shops and really leave a yeasty, dinner roll-like taste in your mouth, a nice choice as well. These old donut shops are institutions. Papa Jakes even had a table full of old men solving the world's problems on a Saturday morning and free coffee refills. A large coffee, 4 donuts, 1 long john, 1 apple fritter, and a milk came to $6. Make sure you stop in on your next pedal through Sedalia.

OK I found it on the Sedalia page! It's been a while since I have been here and the site is so much easier to navigate! Thanks!

I may have to start buying them up in the mornings and have them here at the Katy Depot for the riders who don't have the time to get off the trail (its a nice ride but about 10-12 blocks from the trail ).

I am trying to find out if Papa Jake's bakes birthday cakes and what people think of them and their place, donuts, etc. Thanks!

I hope this gets to you in time. Papa Jake's has the best donuts I've ever put in my mouth!!! However, they only do donuts, and they close at 1:00 pm daily.

I grew up about 1/2 a block from Papa Jake's. I haven't been there in decades, but I'm glad to see that it's still around. Great donuts - during the summer we would occasionally get out in the middle of the night to get hot donuts.

I don't know how, but I saw your comment on the internet, and I thought I'd let you know about Bing's Bakery in Sedalia, MO. I am the cake decorator, and I've been there for six plus years. We have wonderful cakes and if you'd like you may call us at the bakery. Not meaning to brag, but many of my customers tell us we're the best in Sedalia. (660) 829-1400. I hope you find what you're looking for.
