We were just in Ackroyds the other day. We had not been in lately due to "crabby" behind the counter. We met the owner this time, talked about Scotland and the grand old days when the Scotch Picnic was held on Bob-lo Island. With the new atmosphere we will return often.

The crabby women at the bakery are gone! And no they were NOT related to the owner.
The daughter of the owner is now working as third generation of the family. She is doing a great job on having friendlier people working the counter.
If you had a bad experience with the "middle aged woman" at the counter, please come back and give Ackroyd's another try!!

We have been going to Ackroyd's ever since we came to America.
Pies, Bridies, Sausage Rolls, Scotch Bread, Lorne Sausages, Haggis, Black Pudding, Empire Cakes, IRN Bru and the Lot:)
In the past there was one lady who was a wee bit Crabbit.
Everyone else has been warm and helpful!
Food is pure dead brilliant.

I would drive over an hour to get these scottish pies. There were always in the freezer when I lived in the area, but now it is hard to keep them there. Really excited though just put in an order and Saturday I will be the happiest women in the world. My scottish meat pies and shortbread. If you have never had Ackroyd's no matter where you live in MI it is well worth the drive and you will be hooked like me. Thank you Ackroyds for your excellent meat pies!!!!

As the wife of the owner of Ackroyd's, I assure we haven't hired family to wait on customers. Our family members wouldn't treat customers the way some people have reviewed!
Our daughter, Megan, is now working in the family business and is making changes now in many aspects of the business. I am quite pleased with some that I have seen and some that are coming soon!
We are hoping the sales people are treating customers better now and in the future. If they aren't, ask to speak with Megan.

My grandparents patronized Ackroyd's for years. They'd stop by the house and tell us they were off to Ackroyd's for pies, and we'd give them our order. My grandpa's favorite was the meat pies, but they had to be baked with a crust, or they were no good, at least according to him. Pasties, bridies and steak pies are great, too. The help is dreadful, though. The women behind the counter always act as if they are doing you a favor, never smile, and behave as if they have better things to do than serve customers. They all must be related to the owner to keep their jobs. Probably his aunts , or something...cause they sure weren't hired on their attractive looks!

The shortbread from Ackroyd's is the stuff of dreams! Their fern cakes are awesome as well. I'm a sweets lover, but their savory products are wonderful as well. Great comfort food and handy to have on hand in the freezer. Looking forward to my mail order arriving...maybe I'll even share them with my hubby :-)

Best Haggis that I have had outside of Scotland... it was so good, I was almost homesick. I cooked mine in a slow cooker with a jigger of Jameson Whiskey in the water (Haggis is typically boiled) and it was perfect.

I've been hearing about "pasties" for years from one of my "yooper" friends and finally got a beef pasty at Ackroyd. I'd CRAWL over hot coals to get more if I had to - but instead I'll drive an hour. Don't forget to top it with a dollop of sour cream!!!

My friend grew up with their delicious meat pies- when he moved to Boston it was one of the things he missed the most from MI- I recently called up Ackroyd's and had them ship me a dozen meat pies as a surprise for him. They were pleasant and helpful on the phone and the pies arrived in perfect condition! He was thrilled and boy were they delicious!

My family has been going to Ackroyd's for over 30 years. Recently my Grandfather died and we served Ackroyd's at his wake, nothing was better than to celebrate him and his scottish ancestry than meat pies and bridies. Outstanding food which always brings us together.

But no matter when I go, the women behind the glass counter are as surley as all get-out.

I think perhaps it might be part of the whole atmosphere, but JUST ONCE it would be nice to get a smile and a thank you.

Finally, THE FOOD IS WORLD CLASS, but order AHEAD for the barley/sewitt (white) pudding (sausage). They never seem to have any when I arrive.

Maybe they just don't like me.

My brother passed away from cancer in January of 2007
I was trying to think of something I could do for him that he liked. I had meatpies and sweets from Ackroyds sent to him in Santa Rosa, CA.
He was surprised to get him and enjoyed them very much. He use to visit Michigan to visit our Mom each July and December. Always stopping by Ackroyds to get pies, bread and tarts and extras to take back home. Ackroyds was one of his favorite places.
He enjoyed this very much. We miss him.

Ackroyds is a wonderful bakery. It is located on 5 Mile Rd, and is easy to find and there is ample parking. The staff here is so friendly and very helpful if you don't know what something is.

Ackroyds has so many different yummies....Meat Pies, Sausage Rolls, Pasties (meat), Scones and other Pastries. It is hard to make a choice as to what to buy. So just try one of everything!!

We drive over an hour to get Ackroyds goodies. I love the German Biscuits. We get extra meat pies and take them home and freeze them. That is of course whatever is left after the hour ride!

This authetic Scotch bakery has many items that appeal to people of Scottish heritage as well as other nationalities. They have a good variety of different kinds of meat pies, as well as many delicious dessert items. The help is generally friendly and accomadating. The prices are quite low. I highly recommend the bridies, they are tasty!
