Starting out as Clare City Bakery, the ancient, iconic bakery in town, Cops & Doughnuts has an interesting story to tell. When one of the oldest bakeries in the county, the Clare City Bakery, a mainstay in Clare, MI since 1896, was about to be demolished, the entire Police Department came together and gave the place a second chance. This time around though, it had a fun name and interiors to match. Step into this interesting confectionery where you'll find all kinds of baked goodies, including every cop's favorite doughnuts and coffee.
Robinson's Scenic Gardens, advertises itself as the Concrete Sanctuary. Although mainly a yard decorations retailer, it welcomes well-meaning tourists too. The family owned facility sells over 2000 different garden ornaments ranging from the usual garden gnomes, birdbaths to life-size wildlife creatures and unique Biblical characters. There is in fact, a barricaded section dedicated to Biblical scenes. The place also features a free kiddie area and a picnic spot that is sprinkled with colorful, not-for-sale, fiberglass animals, of which the purple hippo and red rhino are most popular.
