Our favorite bakery in town. From donuts, to tarts, turnovers etc. this is the place. We had a large cake made for a birthday and it was decorated perfectly. Very tasty too!

This place makes some out-of-the-ordinary stuff and they do a solid job with everything. I've been there about a half-dozen times now. While nothing has knocked my socks off, I've never been disappointed either.

Great bakery, with a lot of tasty, rich, fattening good stuff! I have never had anything in there that was anything but delicious. They even serve a good tea room type lunch menu! Great tasting soups and sandwiches, and then you can have dessert!

Showed up at 4:45pm, was informed that the grill was shut off. All available was chicken salad (bland) and chili (also bland and not hot). Staff acted like we were intruding. Won't be back.

I love Dutch Oven for breakfast or for lunch. Their Dutch Letters are awesome, as are all of their pastries. For lunch, they have great soups and sandwiches - try a sandwich on the raisin bread!
