Most wonderful bakery in the world!!!! – I grew up with Betty Ann's bakery just 4 blocks from my house--getting 8 donuts after church where I would wait for what felt like hours for 2 jelly donuts, 2 cruellers, 2 raised and 2 plain donuts in a brown paper bag with $1.20 written on the front. My parents and brother and sister would wait anxiously for my arrival--I can even smell the coffee on th stove.
Their scones, hot cross buns during Lent, lemon squares--superb. But their donuts are to die for!!!
My husband and I are now trying to figure out how we can get Betty Ann's to the Cape for our retirement--we are even willing to start our own "Betty Ann's on the Cape" but we're not family, so our chances are slim.
One of my best memories of my childhood.
Amazing, Cheep, Delicious.. – I actually work at Betty Ann Food Shop on the weekends. =)

I don't think I forgot anything.. Any Questions ask and I'll write back.
my name is Shannon, I work there in Saturdays and Sundays. I have been working there for 4 years. my Sister has been there for 8. I got to College full time.
The guys that own it still do. My boss is 94 years old and goes to work everyday. It is a a pleasure to work there and if I were you I would call and order your donuts and pastries if you want a large amount, because we sell out fast!
Thank you for your support! =) Keep Eating!
