"Everyone likes a good bakery, but in this Mississippi River town, where good times otherwise appear to have drifted downstream, the busy Ivy Bake Shoppe is more than a friendly gathering spot to drink coffee and sample region-famous blackberry scones." -Chicago Tribune


Time Magazine included The Ivy Bake Shoppe & Cafe in an article about river towns in January, 2000, written by Steve Lopez. The following link is a related article from the Ft. Madison Daily Democrat, July 2000:
