Magpies was a great! It's a really small bakery and can get very busy, but it was great for grabbing a pastry and coffee before we hit the road! She actually had a gluten free option for me which was great! My friend who was with me is a baker and she was fairly impressed. It's kind of hidden and... More

Left the wife shopping accross the road and went here for a break, the lady who owns and runs the bakery is very friendly and could not do enough for us. Well worth the visit.

She makes everything there in an old converted two story house. Lovely. Freshly baked croissant sandwiches, espresso, coffee, and she filled us in on the whole city while she worked. If you want a nice place to spend a rainy afternoon, here's the spot.

This adorable bakery is just missing the mark each time I go in. Everything on display looks amazing but the taste just doesn't reflect that. The girls that work the counter are quiet and not particularly friendly. It really is a shame and I want to like this place but the beautiful facility just doesn't make up for the bland... More

Come early for the best selection (but not too early, Maggie is a new mom and sometimes her schedule varies). About 1 hour after opening is perfect. Sometimes he pastries are still cooling on the rack do if you don't see anything in the case just ask her what she had. Scones are good all day. The cinnamon rolls are... More

Owner was rude to her staff in front of guests. Breakfast sandwich was a piece of frozen microwaved sausage that tasted horrible on a bagel that was dried out and cold scrambled eggs that were microwaved as well and over melted chewy cheese. Decent coffee. Tasted like gas station food. Another patron said that their breakfast pastries were sold out... More
