Nice place to order special baked breads

I discovered this small, nice bakery a few weeks ago with my son. The pastries are lightly fluffy, or crunchy, if thats your choice. I enjoy the Chai Latte with soy milk, as well. Every Friday I pick up my standing order for Challah Bread for my Shabbat dinner and blessing.

I'm trying hard to find something positive to say about this place but I just can't. No selection! One brownie In the whole case. Ordered 4 different kinds of cookies and they were hard as a rock! No flavor. Avoid this place.

The pastries are delicious. Forget your diet and have a cream filled long john. The almond pastries are so good. The prices are reasonable. The ladies at the counter are really nice. Wish there were bakeries like this everywhere.

My sister, brother-in-law and I entered the quaint little bakery around 1:30 pm for an after lunch treat. We were greeted with a very personable lady. She was friendly and very helpful. The coffee was delicious as were the pastries we chose. She gladly sliced a loaf of Pumpernickel bread I selected. I would go back if it weren't so... More

Downtown St Joe has so many missed opportunities with their restaurant selections, this is not one of them but I bet is often overlooked for lunch. Service was a bit slow, but their sandwiches were hot and delicious, great homemade soup and their sweets were reasonably priced and all looked delicious!

This serves as "my office" on many mornings for coffee, lite breakfast, and the local paper. Friendly staff and good eats!

The baked goods are always great here. Because it is at the end of the downtown block, it can be easily missed. But it is worth going the extra distance to stop in. The office always squeals with glee when I bring in a box of these pastries.

From the coffee to the small town bakery feel, this is a great place to grab some sweets or goodies! The crullers are only available on Fridays though!

Our family has been vacationing in South Haven for a few years now. We enjoy getting donuts for breakfast every now and again. The donuts there are wonderful. My mother-in-law had a blueberry bagel which she enjoyed too.

We like to buy bread and other bakery items here, but it also a great little lunch or breakfast place. Soups are always good.
