Disappointed in staff and food. Others had good-looking food. My chili was cold, but good. Husband's soup was good but just warm. Dark Mocha was good but just warm again!

Must go early, very good food but long lines. If you want a cinnamon roll for breakfast be sure to go early. We did enjoy a lovely breakfast at this bakery. Very friendly staff and good service.

Came here for breakfast (they only serve breakfast and lunch). It's counter service, you order and they give you a beeper for you to pick up the food when ready. There are outdoor seats with umbrellas along the sidewalk with a lake view. Inside a...More
