You’ve heard the expression Cops & Doughnuts. Well, in Clare, it’s not just a lifestyle; it’s an actual doughnut shop and bakery right in downtown Clare that’s owned and operated by nine of Clare’s finest. You read right, the iconic town bakery, built in 1896, was about to go out of business, so all the cops down at the police station decided to get together, pool their money, buy it and save it. The town gets to keep its historic bakery, and the cops still have a place to get their daily doughnut fix. A win-win!

These are the nicest bunch of guys you will ever meet, and they have an absolute blast owning and running Cops & Doughnuts. Business is so good now that they’ve hired a new staff and even added a restaurant and gift shop. The restaurant features fun foods like the “Stool Pigeon Sandwich” and the “Misdemeanor Weiner,” and the gift shop offers official Cops & Doughnuts wearables and even a men’s cologne called “Under Suspicion.”

People are coming from around the world to experience this fun-filled natural combination. So if you’re one of those people who thinks there’s never a cop around when you need one, you should check this place out, because at Cops & Doughnuts, you have the right to remain full and happy.
