“BEST OF THE BEST... HIDDEN GEM!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

First of all let me just start off by saying this is the most amazing place ever. It reminded me as though I was in the 1900s going to a typical small town bakery with a brick oven. The place is adorable and the packaging in the brown paper bag is amazing. Secondly, the bread is to die for!!!! My family and I bought a banana bread and it was by far THE BEST banana bread I have ever tried in my life. We also purchased the mango cake/bread it was beyond anything i've ever tasted (so fresh, so delicious, it just melts in your mouth)
I've traveled to alot of places in the world and let me tell you THIS PLACE IS A HIDDEN GEM. AMAZINGGG!!! as for the prices common who cares if its good i dont mind paying .

Lastly DO NOT BELIVE THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS. this place is the best!

“Bread”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

What's to say the bread is VERY good, but in my opinion very pricey. So if you do not mind paying the prices......then by all means enjoy the bread and the baking goods

The bread that we got wasn't very tasty, and it was highly overpriced.
