My folks live close and we always stop in for bagels or bread. If you want a sandwich, they make sure ones. A very "local" place for a quick bite.

Poor sandwiches and salads in late afternoon. Not recommended for 5pm food to take back to your room. Bread is old and salads are past time. Avoid.

We stopped by for a quick breakfast and to pick up sandwiches for lunch. I would have to say that the main drawback to this place was that they had too many wonderful choices for breakfast so it was hard to choose! I had a fresh baked raspberry pastry, my wife had a "raspberry twist", both were fresh and delicious.... More

Driving north on H89 to Tahoe City with a wife on your right craving for some strong coffee this place saved our day. Not only was the cappuccino perfect, the cakes we tried were excellent as well. Nice sitting area inside and outside, too. We loved it!

We were renting a house just down the street from this place, what a find! Coffee and other hot drinks were really good. Grabbed a cake for our Daughters b-day-excellent. The pastry selection is amazing, from sweet to savory and some in between. The place was very busy on the weekend, people out the door when we went at 8... More

Okay I may be over-exaggerating a bit, but they did help us out in a pinch! Note: This review is about service only. The morning of my friend's wedding, she realized she had a couple of gluten restricted guests attending the event. When I txt'd the bride to see if there was anything she needed, she sent me on a...

What a great bakery! We went multiple times for breakfast pastries because it's unusual to find such delicious gluten free options. The GF lemon poppyseed blueberry muffins are heavenly, as are the chocolate pecan cookies! The rest of the family loved their normal pastries as well.

We were looking for a quick lunch on a busy 3rd of July and this place was exactly what we were looking for. Good sandwiches and we could have easily bought too much other food that we didn't need. The only thing we could have used was a fountain drink since is was very hot. Didn't think about it until... More
