London Fog

Haven't eaten here but 6 years ago my husband and I came here and had the best London fog ever. We have always talked about having to get another next time we came through. Today we did and still is the best London fog we've ever tasted!!

Terrible, overpriced food. The roast potatoes were soggy and had nutmeg of all things on them. Their English muffins are essentially stale hamburger buns. Coffee was $2.75 for a weak cup and nearly $4 for a scone. The surroundings have no charm and felt dirty.

Always stop at this place when we are waiting for the Ferry. Had a scone this time, but have never had anything bad from here. Prices are reasonable and the food is outstanding. Selection varies on the time of day. Coffee is good too.

This local bakery is usually our last stop while we wait to get on the ferry to go home. The food is not cheap but well worth the expense. wholeness, fresh baked goods.. Best cinnamon rolls and the cookies are yummy.

Always eat here when in the area. Amazing fresh baked goods and sandwiches combined with good lattes. Great while waiting for the ferry. Get to the ferry a bit early and get your food.

There really is nothing much else in Balfour, but while stocking up on fireworks we wandered into this totally unexpected true bakery find! Its off season, so there's not huge variety, but that's a good sign in my books. They sell what they bake... no stale leftovers! The cranberry and pecan muffins were incredible. I don't say this lightly. I... More

Incredible edibles. Best blueberry muffin. Only wish I bought more. We had to meet our fishing charter at 8 am. No restaurants opened before then but the bakery had the most amazing ham and egg quiche. Hot and ready to go. Definitely will be stopping again.

We grabbed some bakery items as a quick breakfast one day (a berry scone and pastry). Both were really good. We tried to go back twice but they're closed on sunday... and monday morning they didn't have much in stock (hadn't caught up on baking after a day off?), which was disappointing.

We go here just for the soup. Fun eating outside if you like to watch people. They have a good breakfast menu, which was also very tasty.

We had the soup and sandwich special, the sourdough bread was great. Locally made Russian Borscht was heavenly ! Great coffee, great service, a friendly fun place to eat. Well worth the stop.
