Wonderful midweek breakfast spot on State Street. Tried the Danish Sweet Omelette, hubby had the Sausage Omelette. Both were delicious. We picked up a few pastries with Marzipan for the road and they were wonderful. The staff was really sweet and friendly.

This was our first but not last visit to this bakery. Everything looked scrumptious and it was hard to select. We had Linze cookies with marzipan and also marzipan cigars to go - they both were heavenly. The menu for their restaurant looked good too.

Our server was great, and he accurately described the various pastries. (We ordered the special 4, and took 2 back to our rental for breakfast the next day, which ended up... More
