“Bakery excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This is a nice place to stop for lunch when shopping in the area. The bakery items are excellent the lunch selection good. I would stay away from the quiche unless you are sure it is not going to be overcooked. The sandwiches are quite good. Again, the bakery items are what to look for, especially the variety of cookies. You order at the counter, serve your own beverage and your food is brought to your table. Get there early for lunch as it fills up quickly.

“Nice place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

This is a quaint little cafe! Much better then a panera or sandwich place. Conviently located near TCU so it's the perfect place to have lunch if your going to visit!

“love their bakery and salads and and and”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Can't go wrong here, can eat healthy or splurge on a fantastic bakery item. We try to get there 11:30 as by noon it is so popular can't find a place to sit. Knowing how well loved it is make it a choice to get there early or wait till 1 p.m. Even tried the breakfasts, they were also good. I think the prices are good for what you get service is quick once food ordered, it is clean and pleasant atmosphere. Just an all round winner.

“Wedding rehersal cake was awsome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I had never been to McKinley's bakery but we were having our son's wedding rehersal lunch at Blue Mesa which was close by so I ordered a cake from them. We ordered the vanilla with buttercream icing and chocolate ganache. It was wonderful! The cake was moist and the icing was delicious and not too sweet like some bakery cakes. They weren't having a wedding cake at the wedding so this cake was a great way to have our cake and eat it too!

“Nice spot for lunch in the TCU area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

McKinley's has been a good spot for a sandwich. It moved to a larger location a year ago which has been a welcome change since it opens up the seating quite a bit. The service can be a bit slow.
