Staff are friendly, food is good and bakery is exceptional. Liked the specials and the cookie deal: buy one dozen cookies and get a second dozen for a penny.

I have no idea what the other baked goods are like but the donuts are out of this world. My family became addicted to the donuts and had them for 6 days in a row.The staff is friendly and seems to enjoy their job.
