Expensive

Although the what we bought was ok it wasn't fantastice and it seemed pretty expensive. We went in the afternoon so there wasn't much choice left but we felt £4.50 for 2 buns was overly priced considering they weren't fresh. The lady is lovely I must say and very chatty.

Two women were busy baking the afternoon we stopped by on way to Red Jacket beach resorts. So many choices, both savory and sweet. Everything looked home made. Good prices. Large portions.

I drive by this cute little roadside bakery a few times a week and I wish I could say it was great! But, it's not. It's very inconsistent, selection varies from day to day, and baked goods are just so-so. I make my own cookies from scratch and I can not understand how they can make cookies that are tasteless,...

The staff was not friendly when I stopped in. Thought they were having a bad day so went back again. Still attitude. Twice the items I bought were not fresh. Just not happy bakers. Not worth the stop.

I have no idea how this place stayed in business. Bread is stale and tasteless. They don't know how to cook or bake. I think because of the location (on the way to the beach) and there is nothing else in the area, people stop there

The chowder is fantastic, the cookies incredible and everything they have is just as great. Stop in either going to the beach and get something to take with you, or stop on the way back and get something for later or drive miles out of your way just to pick up something special.
