Opened up on a Sunday morning to sell king cakes. So many varieties to choose from we bought 2! We have also enjoyed breakfast and lunch here. Portions are way more than what you pay. Will be back soon!

Stopped while passing through. Personal muff, Atwood chicken croissant w/gouda, both were very good. Peach cream filled pastry was good. Too many cakes to choose from.

I passed through and was able to get some ready made sweets for my grandbabies. Their desserts and cakes are beautiful. The desserts taste as good as they look.

This is more than just a bakery. It has sit in options. Breakfast options are quite a few. The cakes and baked novelties are for those who are ready to leave their diet plans until after they have been at this bakery.
