My husband and I ate here in 2011; we stumbled upon it by chance and loved it. Now 5 years later we went back with our kids and were not disappointed. It's exactly the same; bakery in front and old style diner in the back. We had sandwiches: Turkey, lettuce and tomato, Reuben, and grilled cheese, with yam fries. They... More

Old time diner and bakery. Perfect place to go for breakfast. We had eggs, excellent multi grain toast and bacon and decent coffee. Reasonable prices. Tables are crammed close together. Apparently nothing has changed at this restaurant/bakery since it opened years ago. Same owners, new flooring. Enjoyable breakfast. Good service. Don't leave without buying some cookies for later. Good place... More

The Dutch Bakery existed longer than I am alive. I still remember my earliest childhood birthday cakes and snacks. Any business would not exist for 50+ years if their product, brand, and business plan was bad. Dutch Bakery never disappoints.

Very busy cafe which looks a bit old fashioned. Sat at the counter as no tables were available. Went in for a coffee and Danish. Pastry ok, coffee just passable. Service nothing special. All in all not the best coffee experience

My wife and I wandered by and were taken in by the beautiful baked goods you could see through the window. We each ordered eggs for breakfast - seemed to take forever before they were served. The homemade raisin bread served as toast was fantastic! Oops - they forgo to serve my wife's hash browns but eventually they arrived too.

Step into 1959ish - their baked goods are legendary, that gets a 10, but the restaurant is just OK - but do stop for coffee and a goodie anytime.

My husband loves croquettes so great spot for lunch and our American friends had never eaten croquettes. Great serve, potato salad side was delicious. Wide variety of cakes to have in or take away.

We had a delicious and simple breakfast at The Dutch Bakery. It was great to read about this family business, and see photos on the walls of how it was not so long ago. I had scrambled eggs, ham and hash browns, and I resisted licking the plate. It was tasty, filling, reasonably priced, and just enough - something that... More
