Breakfast Every Day!

This is an absolute gem just outside of town. All breads are baked fresh daily which leads to excellent and inventive breakfasts every time we're in town. This little place doesn't look like much from the outside, but take a chance; you'll thank me for it!

Asked at counter for suggestions as to what to eat. They said signature dishes were Ruben and Cuban sandwiches. We ordered both, melt in your mouth corned beef; apparently they make their own corned beef. Tasted the Cuban also, well made. Floor could be a bit cleaner, decor dated, space a bit dark, cheesy pictures for sale on wall. Go... More

Enjoyed the sandwiches a lot, the attitude of the waitstaff much less. The place was dingy and could have used a heavy cleaning (floors, walls, ceiling, bath). That being said, the line was out the door for the fresh bread. It totally lived up to the rep in town "best bread in town". Service could have been better. The waitress... More

FRESH Artisan breads & meats! Awesome Sourdough Pancakes! REAL Maple Syrup! Quirky and very Homey decor! Best breakfast in the area... Wish I was wise enough to grab one of their Artisan Sandwiches for the long drive back to Rochester!!!

Cute little place that makes an amazing breakfast. Great country homey atmosphere-but you come for the food, not the decorations. Great home made bread, French toast and pancakes. Every year for the past 5 years we come here for breakfast every morning. It feels like home to us now and we hope it never changes! Come with an open mind... More

I can't remember if we ate here last time, but they have super fresh food and excellent breads. The homemade soup, sourdough breads and salads are perfect for a lite meal.

Dropped by for a take-out lunch. The place was empty, dark and filthy. The food was unappetizingly displayed in the refrigerated cases. Service unfriendly and slow (and we were the only ones there). The corn chowder was completely flavourless with the odd kernel and carrot slice floating around in it. The ham and brie sandwich was tasty but unexceptional. It... More

My kids are chicken noodle soup fiends and I was on a mission to find a place that served it in LP. Not only did they serve it but they strained it for the kids to get rid of the veggies that the kids didn't want. Now that's service. I would come back here because this place cares about their...

I owe this place a positive review. A couple years back I was so turned off by the rude staff that I let it be known on tripadvisor. Someone called me out for trying to harm a small, local enterprise. Of course I was not trying to do so, just let others know what I had experienced on several occasions.... More

We stayed at the Comfort Inn across the street, and this deli made the location of that hotel more desirable. My husband and I thought the service was great and friendly, it was reasonably priced, and was delicious.
