Perfect place for sweets, sandwiches. Cakes. Everything is delicious. Always busy. One think I don't like is how crowded it is and it might take a while to get your orders but its worth it.

All three of their stores are outstanding. The lines can sometimes be long but the staff gets you through quickly. Try the potato balls with hot sauce.

Lines are crazy long but that's how you know it's really good! Cheese danish is soooo good and the sandwiches are huge. Coffee is ok and the fruit juices are awesome.

We went twice on our trip to Southern California. The potato balls and chocolate chip muffins were wonderful. They have lines but it's worth the wait and they are fast. Great staff!
