Only draw back is the place is tiny and crowded most of the time. Fresh local ingredients are used in everything. Breakfast burrito with sausage, sweet potato, corn, black beans and eggs was awesome. Stopped again for lunch next day and kale salad was great so was my veggie sandwich. Highly recommend this place. Probably best deil/bakery in town.

Service was lacking. Counter staff unfriendly. And there are signs everywhere to "bus your own table out of respect for the next customer." Off putting. We had the chicken salad wrap and a ham & cheese panini. Food tasted good but should be served with some kind of a side. A pickle. A couple chips. Something. C'mon - make it... More

This is a good place to go if you want good food, fast service, and a reasonably priced meal. We have tried wraps, sandwiches, and salads. The food was very good and the deserts look good. Tables inside and outside.

We can always find something great to eat .. Homemade and yummy ... There are gluten free bread offerings for people who need but I would pass and stick to the salads and other goodies Always feels busy and the staff has great energy and a smile for everyone

Feels very much like a local's place - great food and some good beer choices to boot. Very fun and friendly environment - I hear their Sunday brunches are awesome - but we missed that. Next time

Friendly cafe meeting place to enjoy caffeine, company and something really good to eat. Sandwiches of all sorts and baked goods are popular, as well as house made soups. Lots of deli items to take away are offered.

We had breakfast at the Butcher and the Baker a few days ago, and it was very good. The cinnamon roll had great texture. It was flaky like a croissant. We also had a great chocolate croissant. The barista seemed like she had better things to do than be friendly, but the food made up for it.

The food is good but breakfast selection is ridiculously small. It's literally either a burrito or a English muffin. They have small stuff like bagels and oatmeal but only the 2 main choices that come with no side.

They have the best breakfast sandwiches, made on homemade sourdough English muffins. The food was fresh with local ingredients made in house. The chocolate croissants were amazing. I definitely will be returning on my next visit.

Who knew a small place like this could provide such an amazing lunch. The turkey sandwich was real turkey breast, not packaged lunch meat. The bread was fresh and tasty. The real treat was the tuna sald wrap which bears no resembleance to the run of the mill tuna salad. There was just a hint of mayonaise and a marvelous... More
