We ordered a big box with quite a few items to try and had it shipped to our home. The shipping was fast and everything came well packed. Therefore, I have to give one star for effort. Unfortunately, the rest was a huge disappointment. If you never been to Europe, you probably don't know otherwise, but everything we ordered tasted extremely sweet, and I mean, SUPER SWEET!!! For all those who are hooked on sugar, I'm not surprised they keep coming back, but that's not what authentic quality European pastries are about.

Let's face it. You don't need to eat everything in this place. You just want to, and they have a lot. Besides their Dutch letters that everyone knows about they have all sorts of cookies and pastries. Unless you live near there, they will probably have something you haven't tried before. If you are near Pella make the stop.

A very dangerous place. Bring your will power! Lots of very delicious pastries and sweets to choose from. Definitely worth the wait to get in, and you probably will have to stand in line a while. That said, you might leave simultaneously wishing you had got more while realizing that you probably got more than you should eat. I know I did.

Everything is delicious and authentic. The cream filled donuts were our favorite. We were also excited to buy bread made with flour ground by the local windmill, and many cute gift items.

Appears to be the premier bakery on the square. Large selection of Dutch pastries. Loved the pillows, goats feet (with very good chocolate), and the crispies. Don't be in a hurry as the line can stretch out the door and around the corner.

Very well organized and enforcwd social distancing. Awesome selection of so many different baked goods. Worth the almost hour wait to get in. I have vivid childhood memories of coming here during tulip festival and havent been back in many years.

This is possibly the best bakery I've ever been to! They have soooo much stuff and everything looks incredible! Even on a Saturday afternoon they were still very stocked up. My favorite was the almond tart. They also have lots of bread, pasta, and unique Dutch gifts. Staff was fast and friendly.

Great and superb selection of pastries! The prices were not as bad as I feared, although the final tally might be ugly, due to the sheer number of things you end up getting. The actual quality of the pastries is beyond reproach. Definitely a "must visit" place.

They are doing a great job with social distancing and limiting the number of patrons in the building at a time. As always the staff was warm and inviting and the pastries were amazing

Fun, bustling bakery. So much variety it can make for tough decisions but prices are reasonable so you can pick a few extras to sample...and I highly recommend doing so cause after you taste one you will want to go back. Dutch letters were good but I would suggest trying the goats legs or puff pillow pastries as well. Lines can be long but moves along well as they have plenty of clerks ready to help. As soon as you can peek through to the glass cases start planning your selections.

Top notch sweets. If you have never been this becomes a bucket list item. Start with a pillow puff. If you spend less than $30 here you have wasted your time stopping. Splurge, you won't regret it!!

If you have never had the opportunity to visit this place is you are missing a bucket list of culinary delight. Everything and I mean everything is fantastic. The regular Dutch letters are simple perfection only to be outdone by the traditional Dutch letter log. Almond paste overload, but there is no body who wouldn't enjoy this. Finally as Christmas season is approaching you have to make a trip to purchase some of their incredible decorative sugar cookies. They taste great but they are almost too beautiful to eat. Those of you who want to add some festive flavor to your home, simply get a platter full of these and put them out. You have to experience this place for yourself.

I got some Dutch letters. They are really good, flaky and almondy. The "S" shape makes me think of Sinterklaas.

Stopped in when taking my grandson to college. Oh my goodness. We got several bags of goodies to bring home. A few bags made it home. We ate several bags on our thirteen hour drive home. Everything was delicious. So fresh! Can't wait to go back! Oh, and the service was great!

I don't think there is a bad bite in the place! The letters melt in your mouth, as do the Russian teacakes. The maple cover apple fritter was for my Mister. He said it was the best he as ever had, and he's had his share in his 54 years as it's his favorite pastry. This is not just a bakery. Lots of cute gifts and chocolate. You gotta stop. At the very least, get the letter ( it's an "S").

There’s moments in life that cause all others to pale in comparison. I was married on the beaches of Maui, I witnessed my wife bring three lives into this world, I’ve seen The Last Dance — nothing compares to the Jaarsma Bakery.

So jaarsma is wonderful eats!! Go there often and get 40 to 50 orders. Giving them a 3 as on Feb 3 I phoned in order going on a plane with me. I got there they read me off my order and I took them to florida. I did not get the goats legs (napleons) she loved. So flew home on 11 th self quarantined and went to jaarsmas today and had a 40 order. I told them date of my to go order and that I didn't get those for items. They wouldn't credit my current order cause I hadn't called in?? Of I was gonna lie out would have been for a dozen letters
