Best coffee, sandwiches and pastries in town

As fan (addicts) of fresh bold coffees and teas, we tried all the identifiable options in town over our four days there and Morning Glory clearly had the best. The chicken salad sandwich also was exceptionally good, as were the deserts. If not for the limited menu and sitting options, we would... read more

It is always a treat to stop in at the Morning Glory Bakery. I especially love their cheese croissants right out of the oven.

We had a great breakfast at Morning Glory Bakery. We had fresh sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches made on homemade bagels which were awesome! They also had several yummy looking treats in the display counter as well and two yummy looking quiches! It is a bit pricy as we each had a bagel sandwich, a latte and an apple juice... More

We ate here for the first time and found the pastries lacking in quality. We cannot vouch for the breads, which we are told are good, because they ran out by afternoon.

This is a small counter service bakery/restaurant, my boyfriend and I went for breakfast, though they also have lunch items (salads and sandwiches) I got a cheddar bagel with bacon chive cream cheese & a tomato, and my boyfriend got an egg, sausage and cheese sandwich also on a cheddar bagel. We also got Chai with an espresso shot. First... More

Wonderful bakery, both for take home baked goods and snack on site. Choice of tables for inside eating, or outside to eat and "watch the pass". Great sandwiches, as well as the bagels, croissants, etc. Try it, you won't be disappointed

special ordered a cake there last week- wrong frosting was put on it (was supposed to be creamcheese and was buttercream) carrot cake was pretty dry- chicken salad sandwich with curry that I grabbed for lunch was great though!

Sorry, but we expected better! The scone seemed undercooked. The brownie was hard and a little to candy like taste for us.

Three of our five mornings we had breakfast here. The toasted bagel with cream cheese was unusually tasty and toothsome. The cappuccino was full-flavored. The breakfast sandwich was satisfying. The apple pie we took away for supper was near perfect: crisp, flavorsome apples, flakey crust. And the young staff were uniformally cheerful and helpful. The other two mornings? We ate... More

So this place seems to get good reviews and I LOVE blueberry pie so my husband and I dropped by 4pm on 9/20. We didn't want a whole pie / were just looking for 2 slices. Young woman behind the counter obviously wanted to be somewhere else & clearly thought I was a bother. No need for more details /... More
