Wonderful breads from whole grain that taste wonderful regardless of your feelings about healthy eating! Cinnamon rolls aren't exactly healthy but tasty enough to make you happy! Yeast breads, quick breads, sandwiches, mostly this is a bakery with some food on the side.

We scratch make everything on the premise from all natural ingredients. We specialize in unique bread varities from basil parmesan, wholesome 14-grain harvest to decadent chocolate zuchinni bread. For our lunch offerings, we use Boar's Head natural meats and local produce. We have a huge sample, so come on in and try a fresh slice of bread on the house.
