Whether you're in the mood for fresh-baked bread, a warm slice of pie, or the perfect chocolate chip cookie, a great bakery is always a hometown favorite.
So we turned to location intelligence company Foursquare to help us find the best bakery in every state.
Because the city-guide app allows users to save and favorite venues they love, Foursquare was able to track down which bakeries locals are raving about across the country and compile a list of America's most scrumptious bakeries.
From traditional French pastries in Pennsylvania to creative doughnuts in New Mexico, here's where to find the best baked goods in every state you visit.
Did we get your state right? Let us know in the comments.

ALASKA: As its name suggests, the Great Harvest Bread Company in Anchorage is known for its freshly baked "phenomenal" bread. Their 100% whole-grain flour is milled fresh every day, and they make all kinds of breads that you won't find elsewhere, like their bacon ale bread, made with both bacon and IPA beer.
ARIZONA: The Coffee Shop is a favorite of residents of Agritopia, an urban agricultural development in Gilbert. Their cupcakes even took home top honors in an episode of Food Network's Cupcake Wars."
