Chacko's Bakery in Mission, KS?

Does anyone like Chacko's Bakery in Mission? I don't know too much about it, but one of our reps brings us baked goodies from there every time she comes. And the last time, it was honestly the best muffin I've ever tasted in my life! I was sad that I split in half with one of my co-workers! It was a raspberry muffin with a crumb topping... oh so good! Does anyone frequent it? Any favorites? I would love to have that recipe, as muffins are one thing I seem to suck at!

  1. I have been to Chacko's many times. Their cinnamon rolls are huge. Chacko's was always a big hit with my office. I have't been back since I moved out of Mission.

    1. Yeah, we're within walking distance, and it's quite good.

      They've got these little creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies that are really good, and some of their tarts (maybe chocolate peanut butter?) is a big hit with my wife. They close at 3 or something, which is too bad, because there are many times later in the day when I want to pick up a dessert for later (esp. when my wife was pregnant) and there aren't other good, close options.

      They also sell bread, which is pretty good, and have a lunch menu of sandwiches, quiches, soups, and the like.

      1. We get box lunches from them sometimes for meetings/seminars at work and everyone seems to really enjoy them. I live right down the block and have stopped in once. I had a tasty cheesecake brownie but I distinctly remember the person who helped me was rather rude. I asked what a couple of items were and received very short answers and made to feel like I was stupid and being an inconvenience for asking.

          We've used them for catering 2X at my office and both times they refuse to write people's names on the boxed order - and, for 40 boxed lunches, it's hard to 1. remember what you ordered from weeks prior (we order far in advance!) 2. it takes another 10 minutes out of the highly structured lunch hour.
          I don't know why it's so hard to write "Alan - Tuna Salad" on the box.

          That being said, the food is good and prices are reasonable. I don't think we would go out of our way for it again.

            That's too bad regarding the service issues- that's one of my biggest peeves though, and would probably stop me from going back. How hard is it to be nice?!

            1. re: Katie Nell

              I've been in there at least 10 times and have never had any service issues, for whatever that's worth. They're very nice, actually, in my experience.

        2. The owner is also the baking instructor at Broadmoor Technical Center for the Culinary and Baking Program.

            I'm definitely hitting their bakesale @the school then. The cupcakes were excellent- tender crumb, tasty frosting. They had some cherry/apricot "slab" pie looking luscious that I'm getting on my next visit. I also took home some smoked chicken dip that was quite good. The service was gracious. I've got to make it in more often.

          2. We just went to Chacko's today for lunch, and I have to say, it's now one of my favorite places- might just be come a regular Saturday thing for us! I had the goat cheese salad with spiced pecans and red wine vinaigrette. It came with a roll and a dessert for like $7 or $8, or close to that. It was really great and fresh. For my dessert, I had the bourbon pecan cupcake, and it was just amazing- white cupcake with a crunchy/ chewy pecan bourbon brown sugar topping! My husband had the club sandwich which he seemed to like, but he also kept stealing bites of my salad. His dessert was the chocolate peanut butter bar and it was also extra good and rich. The service was very nice and helpful, and I'll be honest, I was being very indecisive so they could have gotten frustrated with me, but didn't- my husband sure was! I can't wait to go back!
