Great bakery and breakfast. We've eaten here many times and the food is always great. Bakeries are a treat. Never had lunch or dinner but menu looks good. Small dining room but does have outside deck.

Picked up a couple items to... More

This place has a great variety of bakery items, it was a chilly day when we visited and we got a hot chocolate, probably the best hot chocolate we have ever had, outside dining is available also offers free parking.
