Thank you for the 5 Star review and your patronage. Glad you enjoyed your Chocolate Cream Puff before the long drive. We know that a few Danish pastries are always good before a long trip. LOL! Do have a nice day.

Everything looked yummy. Even had a 'clearance' (which was good!). One item we loved the most was a Raspberry Short Dough. I would definitely get it again (and not share it!)

They have baked goods and coffee and don’t provide a regular breakfast. But they can really fill you up. And you end up buying more to take with you. A good choice

Stopped for a coffeebreak. The bakery is varied and satisfies all tastes. They filled up coffe to avoid the cup to get cold. Friendly staff. It is also possible to buy fibrous bread. Cosy bakery/Cafe.
