“GREAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

You order your sandwich AND THEN they start making it. This is not McDonalds. This is not fast food. This is a real-honest-to-god European bakery. If you ever find yourself in, let's say France, try to get off-tour and go to a real bistro and order a sandwich - you will not be served said sandwich immediately - you will have to wait. If you want a sandwich on baguette which was baked the same day (I understand that baking starts at 3 am or so) you will love this place. The bread sell out quickly so grab a loaf when you walk in.

“Doesn't open until 10”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Breakfast and coffee, apparently, but not during normal hours. Had to pay to park to discover they had arbitrarily decided not to open until 10.

“Great sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I had a turkey club and my husband had a ham and cheese, each came on an baguette, and were served with a wedding cookie. Both were really good! It did take some time to be served, so if you in a hurry this is not the place to stop.

Its a really nice shop and the food was yum, so I hope The Bakery makes it.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Excellent food--absolutely delicious! But, a little overpriced. And, you have to wait a long, long time. It's not practical for a lunch break from work, but the bread is delicious and the pastries are heavenly! I will come back, but perhaps I will call it in ahead of time.

“Yummy hot & cold sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Cute cafe with lots of veggie options. Good quality ingredients. Close to High Bridge trail. Your only other sandwich options in this town are grocery stores, Wal*Mart, or Sheetz. Support this local gem instead.
