Fresh bakery items sold over the counter with coffee or eat in the small cafe. Don't miss the apple fritters! Cute moose souvenirs sold here too!

You walk in and are invited by the most delicious smell. The options are big and yummy. I ordered the cinnamon roll. Light, fluffy and so soft. Very fresh. Well deserved rating.

Great coffee, Great smiles from even greater people. The fritters were to die for and the rest was spectacular. Kids had donuts, and cinnamon rolls. I got to "Dad Tax" both and give my approval. Cute shop with lots to choose from ....even had some Moose swag to look at as well. Ended up with Moose socks for entire family.

Best bakery around, they are fresh. The orange bread makes the best french toast for those who like to cook

Blew me away... better than a NYC bakery. Many specialties. Locals seem to know when their favorites come out of the oven. They go fast. Keep quirky days open vs closed. Very imaginative offerings. Coffee could be better.

This place is delicious. Everything they make is tasty. Be warned you may put on a few pounds after a stop here! Doughnuts are world class
