O&H Bakery is a Danish bakery in Racine serving up award-winning Kringle and other traditional Danish baked goods since the 1940s.
In that time, we have never cut corners or accepted anything less than outstanding quality and the utmost care in creating our artisan bakery. We believe in the Danish idea of Hygge, or the good life, encouraging everyone to slow down and enjoy our delicious authentic Kringle and a fresh, hot cup of coffee. Our love of baking has been carried through our family of Danish bakers for generations. Whether you are craving a tasty slice of Danish Coffee Cake, a piece of one of our hand-made Layer Cakes fit for a king, freshly made donuts or a traditional fruit-filled Kringle, you’ll find it here at O&H Danish Bakery.
