They offer a wide selection of treats, all of which are delicious! You can get a cup of coffee and sit outside in front and enjoy watching the passers-by.

I didn't try any of the pastries but the waiting in line to order a coffee while the person at the coffee machine is doing nothing was quite tedious. Finally, we got terrible coffee...

For starters, I believe the food is pre-made in back and is not made to order. My son and I ordered french toast, bacon and scrambled eggs. The food was out to us within a few minutes of ordering. The french toast did not have a great taste to it. More bland then anything. I asked for my bacon extra... More

My wife and I stopped in for a late breakfast on a recent visit to South Haven. This place is both a bakery and a cafe. We had breakfast in the cafe. You order cafeteria style at the counter. You then get your drink and pay. They give you a number to display on your table and they bring you... More

Oh my! The BEST donuts, cinnamon rolls, long johns you could ever want. And they have cookies, breads and a cafeteria style restaurant too. All we can say is YUM! Just go for at least a maple nut twist. It can't be beat!

A nice small town bakery. Very attendant and yummy donuts and fudge. Everyone was incredibly nice. Even did a great job with my iced latte!

You better get there early because the bakery items are so delish they go fast. But don't worry, they'll always have something to choose that will satisfy.

We purchased a variety of a couple dozen cookies here and I was not impressed. They varied from hard, dry and tasteless. We also had lunch at the café. It was better than the cookies. I had a chicken wrap that was pretty tasty.

I love to bake so walking into this bakery I smelled the familiar aroma immediately, however, was somehow lost in my own expectation and quickly bought into the cookie special. My daughter, bestie and her daughter all picked our favorites and then headed back to the car spent from a very fun day. The cookies were terrible. A real disappointment...taste... More
