It's in the downtown shopping district and was a good place to rest and refresh before seeing more antiques.

We bought quite a bag of bakery food for the road before heading on home. The croissants were delicious and had some amazing chocolate treats as well.

Stopped for a drink and pastry, sat on the patio with our small dog. They brought our dog a treat and a bowl of fresh water. The pastry was good and the patio relaxing .

They were not only able to make a delicious red velvet cake but place it in the front window so as my parents walked by they could see... More

My wife and I stopped in here for a little desert after having lunch nearby. We didn't sample much, but what we had wasn't anything worth trying. I had a chocolate chip cookie that was on par flavor-wise with something you could get out of a box at Walmart. My wife had their so-called "signature item", which was a small... More
