H&R Bakery has moved into a newer building on the square since our last visit. It is fantastic and spacious. Not to mention the donuts were great, still. And I loved their caramel apple cider. Easy to find new location on the square.

I was driving thru Salem a couple weeks ago and decided to check out the downtown area. I stopped at H&R Bakery and had two of their pastries. They were delicious!!! I live in Chicago, so probably won't go back there for a while, but...they are definitely worth making a special trip to if you're anywhere in the area.More

I stopped in at the recommendation of a business associate on my way out of town. In addition to be a great location and facility, I had one the best fritters I have had any where! Delish! I was also pleasantly surprised that they serve...coffee from Sunergos Coffee. This is my favorite coffee shop in Louisville and it is amazing. If you are nearby, don't miss out! Stop in for a treat and a coffee!More

The new building is amazing and goes along well with their amazing donuts. If you are close, make a trip here to grab you a few to enjoy inside and maybe some to go as well.

H & R Bakery is famous for its glazed doughnuts. And they are delicious. But don't stop there. The baked cinnamon rolls are awesome and the iced sugar cookies are amazing. They have a large variety of glazed and cake doughnuts.

I can feel it every time I think of H&R, the warm glaze and hot donuts. The coffee or Pineapple juice. Nostalgic and Remarkable.

We stumbled upon this little bakery on a late night walk...couldn't believe it was actually open 24 hours. The yummy scent of baking cinnamon pulled us in. Everything we tried was delicious...even the espresso. The staff was sweet and helpful. Can't wait to return to...Salem to try more tasty treats!!!More

I don't think I've ever had a peanut butter & jelly donut before, but after visiting H&R it won't be the last. They are very good. You can not only taste the grape jelly filling but the peanut butter icing is excellent. One 9f the...best donut bakeries around.More

Really - YUM. It is so hard to find good, fresh-made, local, long-standing (not here today and gone tomorrow) bakeries these days. I hope H&R will continue on for generations. This is the kind of place that my Papaw used to go pick up fresh...donuts from in the morning before we were out of bed when we were kids. They have a great variety of baked goods and the sweets are just way too hard to choose between! Make sure you get there early enough that they don’t run out of your favorite!More

My wife & I had heard rave reviews about this bakery in a small storefront off the square in Salem, Indiana. When we finally had an opportunity to make the 30 mile trip, we bee lined for H & R. We were not disappointed. Our...half dozen was mixed with favorite flavors: 2 custard filled long johns with chocolate icing; 2 custard filled rolls with the same icing; a lemon filled roll; & a raspberry filled roll. As soon as we got into the car we split a long john & found the dough to be extremely fresh, soft, & not filled with air. The others were consumed over the next 24 hours. Each was as good as the first. We are looking for reasons to drive to Salem.More

This place can be addictive stop at your own risk. I've lived in this town for a couple years and never noticed this place and when I finally stop and visit I was flabbergasted at the quality of such fresh donuts they almost melt in...your mouth I'm giving 4 stars because there was no where to set with a half gallon of chocolate milk. I would like to be able to consume the product on site so I don't leave evidence in my car.More

I would think you would need to be 18 but this is not the proper place to ask that question. You need to contact the bakery directly and ask them about job opportunities.
