Love the baked goods here! Finally stopped by for lunch, wish I hadn't. Sandwiches are served cold (even though we asked for toasted), insufficient condiments, bland. I'll keep stopping by for the bakery. But I won't eat here again.

While we're happy you love our baked goods, we wish you were just as impressed with our lunch. What you're describing here doesn't sound like us, so we can only imagine there was some miscommunication on our end about whether or not you wanted your sandwich toasted. Still, it should've been flavorful, so we apologize that yours wasn't. It sounds... More

Ate here this morning, an awesome place. Got some sweet pastries for a good price and they were fantastic. Look forward to coming again and getting some with my friends.

I've been here several times and while it's a convenient place to have a coffee meeting, either business or personal, the food is subpar and recently the service (mostly attitude) of the counter staff is very poor -- disinterested and lackluster to say the very least. I"d give it only 2.5 stars if that were an option.

Susan, we're sorry to read that your service hasn't been on point. We're typically known for our friendly and efficient staff, so it's surprising to read otherwise. It's possible you caught us on some off-days, but I understand your frustration here. We hope this doesn't deter you from coming back for another coffee meeting because we know we can do... More

Well, I only have 1 thing to say - why are your sugar cookies $4 a piece!!?? The other day, I ran in to buy my child a Texas Longhorn cut out cookie and imagine my surprise when you asked me to pay $4 for 1 cookie! WHAT??!! REALLY!!?? Guess I won't be going back.

There's nothing more frustrating than getting to a register and realizing the cost of something isn't what you were expecting. It looks like we weren't as clear as we could've been with our pricing, so I apologize for the misunderstanding. Our hand decorated cookies, like the one you bought, are cut, baked, dipped, and then hand painted, so we price... More
