During our 7 day trip we had one or more of the breads that the bakery offered. Service is super friendly and the food is wonderful. Especially the bread with feta and the mini pizza were tummies.

Had lunch here, which was chaotic but tasty. Came back for dinner, and watched the chaos intensify - people who ordered after us were served first, orders were forgotten, and we watched a cook change a rack of room temperature chicken, then make our wraps,...More

Staring at the selection makes it hard to choose but you really can't go wrong with anything you chose - and why settle for just one. The bake throughout the day so it's always fresh.
