This bakery is a little quaint place that's easy to walk by but don't!! They have a nice selection on their menu and you can tell that they take their time making your food. Their bakery items are delicious and all so appealing.

We went for breakfast this morning. Started out with a piece of crumb cake that looked like it rivaled NY bakery crumb cake. This crumb cake was BETTER! Wow was it awesome. The crumbs were very NYish but the cake was way more moist than the usual NY fare. Loved it! My husband ordered a breakfast bowl and it was... More

This small bakery/cafe has the best scones ever. The lemon poppy seed are my favorite. Next would be the raspberry which are loaded with juicy fresh raspberries. The scones are most and loaded with flavor, the lemon have a sweet glaze over the top which is so good.We love to sit out front order tea and enjoy the scones. I... More

Walk in and just try to choose from all the good things in the pastry case. Lemon squares, 3 kinds of macaroons, and my sister's favorite the scones, best she has ever had. I have loved anything I have ever tried here.

We sweets from the bakery for deserts. Our server was pleasant and very accomodating. The ham and cheese quiche was very unique. It was served in a rectangular crock... More

We ate breakfast, and ordered the Huevos Rancheros and asked to cook the eggs soft and specifically said, please we do not want dry eggs. They eggs were microwaved and so dry, so we asked for Salsa and she said we would have to pay extra! They take your order, drop it on the table and that is the kind... More

Had a wonderful weekend family breakfast. Service was excellent. Food was excellent and delivered promptly. My son really liked the chocolate chip pancakes. I really enjoyed the Texas Cinnamon French toast and the home fries are the best I think I ever had, they had a unique flavor or seasoning on them which I can't pinpoint at the moment. Probably...
