Delicious

I have only tried the Cronuts. The Cronuts are delicious, but only something I would eat maybe once in a blue moon. It is probably 1000 kcal.

I stopped in while waiting for a scooter rental nearby. Enjoyed a Spinach Salad, an spinach roll, and something with chicken and Indian style vegetables and rice in a thin tort shell. Regular customers kept coming in as this seems to be a well liked establishment by the locals. Would go again.

Stumbled into this fabulous bakery by fluke. Wide variety of sandwich choices on weekdays, but on weekends are forced to eat pre-packaged - best prepackaged sandwich ever! Absolutely sensational bread, fantastic coffees, wide variety of pastery choices, exception service, very reasonable prices. Can't wait to go back today.

They make sandwiches with PRETZEL BREAD. Best sandwiches for take-out, and delicious dessert pastries.
