Went in to grab a snack and got cinnamon rolls. They were a little pricey but soft and very fresh. The girl behind the counter was very friendly and although busy service was fast. Went late in afternoon so selection of desserts was small would go in the morning when there's more to choose from.

Bread is very thick, I like the whole wheat. I almost always have the swiss and ham which is so very good and filling.
