New bakery opens in Ogdensburg

Canton Street in Ogdensburg is smelling sweet with the opening of the Knot Just Donutz & More bakery.

Located at 601 Canton St., the bakery had what owner Stephen Ritchie called a “quiet opening” on Saturday.

But there has been nothing quiet about the public’s response. On Monday, there was a steady stream of customers.

Linda Thompson, of Ogdensburg, left with a box of a dozen donuts. Given her enthusiasm, one might have assumed she was carrying gold bars instead.

“Oh, I think it’s good,” Mrs. Thompson said. “To me, Ogdensburg needs a bakery.”

Mr. Ritchie said he was pleased with the bakery’s first few days of business. He was observant enough to see which of the more than a dozen types and flavors of donuts, muffins and brownies are selling more than others.

That coffee-dunking staple, the plain donut, is moving slowly for now.

“The long Johns and the jelly-filleds are the most popular,” Mr. Ritchie said.

Knot Just Donutz & More’s hours of business are: Monday and Wednesday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 4 to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The bakery is closed Tuesday. There are three four-seat tables for sit-down customers.

Coffee, juices, bottled water, soft drinks, cakes, cookies and cupcakes are also sold.

Mr. Ritchie employs eight part-time workers.

The bakery telephone number is 393-3415.
