Review of Nord’s Bakery in Louisville


Along Preston Rd. just before you hit Eastern Parkway, there’s a little inks bakery on the corner that can’t keep the door shut. As I drove by Nord’s Bakery (2118 S Preston St Louisville, KY 40217) and pulled over to park, I was amazed at how many people were coming and going with their boxes and bags of goodies.

On Fridays when school is not in session, the kids join me early at the Lite 106.9 studio downtown for my radio segment. If they behave, we head out for a park or treat after I’m finished – a new park, special activity or something yummy.  So on one summer Friday, I decided that doughnuts were going to be the reward of choice!

Nord’s Bakery is small but perfectly sweet. The staff bustles behind the case filling orders as an informal line forms.  The kind of hole-in-the-wall place where a line isn’t really necessary – you just get yourself up to the counter and order! They do have pies and cookies but most people were focused on the doughnuts.  Everything is moderately priced – we bought 3 doughnuts and a large juice for less than $5.  My daughter chose a chocolate iced doughnut with sprinkles, I chose a cream filled one with chocolate icing and my son chose the bacon maple doughnut.  We sat in the small, cutely decorated space in the back and chatted as we gobbled our doughnuts and shared the big bottled juice.  It was all delicious!

We will definitely go back.  I think I prefer Plehn’s in St. Matthews because it’s a bit closer to me and there’s such a huge variety all of the time but Nord’s is definitely a little gem to check out!
