We stop here often when we are in town. We love their breakfast sandwiches, wraps, and baked goods. Highly recommend. Plan on being in line about 20 minutes.

My husband and I stopped here before starting our day of wine tasting. We both had breakfast bagels/sammies and bought some of those delicious wedding cookies to share. I highly recommend this popular little bakery!

My cappuccino was very dry, with excellent flavor. My breakfast sandwich was a great blend of flavors. They have plenty of baked goods if you want something sweet. That's it -- bakery with coffee and some takeout breakfast offerings. Perfect for us.

Not sure why the reviews were so great. My espresso was burnt, and the croissant was mediocore (not flakey enough, not battery enough, just alright - average). Breakfast sandwich was better, but quite pricey for such a small breakfast sandwich.

Unfortunately a good breakfast sandwich was ruined by poor service. There was no one else being served, the waitress took my order wrong, when i realised on collection they would not correct their mistake and didn't seem to care at all. Also they only have...More
