Best coffee I've ever had, and boy, do I drink coffee. Lovely selection of pastries/bakery items. Good breakfast choices.

We bought doughnuts and coffee cake to take home and try. My family thought it was delicious and every time we went into town, someone had to have something.

We were looking for a place to lunch after 1:00 and found that most places had waiting lines. We stopped here and found we could get into the cafeteria immediately.

Ran from our bed and breakfast to get a pastry and coffee. Tough to make a choice because there were so many options. Loved their cinnamon roll.

From the outside the bakery looked promising and they offer buy one dozen cookies for $5.99 and get a dozen for $0.01.
