“So friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

This was my first time since the bakery changed names, so I was a little unsure what it would be like. It was very nice, and the service excellent--so friendly and cheery! Not to mention that the food was deelish. Definitely going back while I'm in town. :)

“Bakery? Not So”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Completely agree with the review that says this place is living on the reputation of the past owners. The chocolate croissant I bought was far worse than anything in a grocery store and there was very little options in the bakery cases otherwise.

“Not so much of a bakery...decent lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I would like to see more doughnuts and pastry. There is usually no more than some bread, cupcakes, and a few other tidbits. Have been there for lunch several times. Nice atmosphere, bread is great (as you would expect), but the sandwiches are a little pricey and not very hearty. On a recent trip the caprese sandwich was so scarce, one little thin slice of tomato, barely any mozzarella, and a shred of basil it was almost funny if it wasn't such a sad little sandwich. The other sandwich on the table was a chicken salad sandwich, and again very little between the bread. Needs better value. The sandwiches are ok, but somehow I feel just a little ripped off when I leave.

“good hearty lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We visited on a snowy weekend recently and were pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant- we had good vegetable chowder and the turkey sandwich my wife had was good as well as the chicken one I had.

“best quiche ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I don't even like quiche much, but here I have it regularly! The potato crust is delighfiul and it's great with a caramel macchiato. And don't get me going on the treats! Actually, anything we have ordered there has been good and when it's warm weather, don't miss the back deck as it has a very nice mountain view.
