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.

Very good service! Very good food! The people behind the counter were very helpful and patient as we chose our pastries. We sat outside and enjoyed the view and conversation.

Great way to start your day! We didn't get breakfast, but the donuts and coffee are wonderful. We went 2 different days and tried 4 different donuts, and all are great. Highly recommend!

Five stars for the bakery where you can purchase reasonably priced and unreasonably delicious fresh baked from scratch treats. Try the cheese horns! We also had breakfast in the cafeteria and that I would give 3 stars for the food - edible and average but still 5 stars for the friendly helpful welcoming service. We love this bakery and still...

Bakery is excellent. Cafeteria breakfast is ok. Nothing special. Price is just ok and not much in service since like being back in school.
