The coffee(I drink decaf) is flowing and a good variety of pasties available. Go early for easy seating near window.

Cheese danish yum. Krinkle was fabulous and tasty. We took one home and they rapped it very well. It traveled 6 hrs with no problems. We fell in love with their service. Very patient with us as we had a lot to choose from. They gave us samples also. It was a great experience going there.

Saw the reviews so we made a point of stopping here. There are numerous bakeries in town which I can't speak to but we enjoyed our pastry from here. I always ask what a bakery is known for and the server said the Kringle with the almond creme filling. Sign me up. They had a piece for sale rather than... More

The selections of pastries is mind boggling. Chocolate and cream puffs are a wonderful lunch for the hungry traveler. Coffee with the meal helps prevent diabetes, so all is good. Nice atmosphere, good service, reasonable prices. Don't miss it.
