“Good bakery, go early”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Great baked items and desserts. One suggestion...go early, not late. Choices are limited and you can tell that the items have been sitting for awhile.

“Awesome artisan breads and pastries!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

You will be amazed and delighted at the offerings of this fine bakery in the heart of Champaign, IL....on the Neil Street Strip.

True handmade artisan breads, pastries, cookies, cakes, and other delights! All from scratch. No preservatives (so eat them the day you buy them).

“Fine French and Italian pastries, but terrible bread”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

I love their quiches lorraine and tiramisu, but the french baguette is far from being what I know as a french baguette.
