Houston Moyer, manager of Bostwick Bakery in Cannon Township, said the popular Polish pastries called “Paczkis” will soon be in stock, just in time for the Catholic holiday of Lent.

CANNON TOWNSHIP — The Bostwick Bakery and Coffee Shop has added new delivery stops in Greenville and Belding — just in time for Paczki season.

The bakery, at 8570 Belding Road N.E. in Rockford, is known for making everything from scratch, said manager Houston Moyer.

“That’s one of our pride points, making everything from scratch, including our frostings and glazes,” he said.

The new delivery sites will be to the west side of Belding and also to Petersen Oil and Propane in Greenville.

The Greenville delivery location will also carry the bakery’s special Paczki, a Polish deep fried pastry that will be sold between Feb. 7 and Feb. 13.

Bostwick Bakery and Coffee Shop will be making Paczki pastries for customers with flavors that include apple, blueberry, lemon, cream cheese, cherry and raspberry.

“We will also have the original prune flavor, as well,” Moyer said.

Paczkis are a Polish pastry that resembles a jelly doughnut that is traditionally eaten on the last day before the Catholic holiday of Lent, commonly known as Fat Tuesday, according to

Moyer suggests preordering Paczkis from the bakery as they will have a limited amount at the location for walk-ins.

The bakery has been in business for 20 years and employs 15 employees.

The family-run business makes everything from cookies and doughnuts to breads and buns.

“We also have breakfast and lunch sandwiches,” Moyer said.

The business is open from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Orders can also be taken through email at
