The only problem is choosing what you want

Wonderful bakery that is known for dirt bombs, cheese and cherry danish, scones in the morning. Good soups for lunch and lots of wonderful desserts. At Christmas, try the mocha yule log and the stollen.

This bakery is just really good, both in and out of season. During the summer, breakfast items like croissants and Dirt Bombs are sold out by mid-morning for the beach-goers, but never fear. The pies and cookies that are available next are even better. Cakes can range from too sweet to terrific, depending on what you choose. Regular cakes come... More

The cheese danish is the best I have ever tasted. Cranberry almost poppy seed muffin is very good too. Nice little bakery. Worth a visit.

One must have the Almond Cream Croissant with a cup of their fresh brewed coffee. Come early or they will be gone. Many great cookies muffins and other sweet items for your take home pleasure.

One thing I never understand is that they advertise that they are home of the dirt bomb, a cinnamon/sugar muffin. The best thing there is the friggin' cranberry/almond poppysee muffin with a big crunch top that's to die for. They are always almost gone. Danish are great. Coffee is in those thermos containers which I'm not a fan of. Don't... More

Both are in the top of their class. The almond croissant had an ample filling of almond paste without being cloyingly sweet. And the delicious taste of butter permeated the croissant. The sticky bun was large and covered with fresh nuts in a wonderfully decadent sugary sticky topping. We found the staff to be polite and helpful. Don't miss this... More

Delightful little spot for lunch or a quick bite to eat. When it's warm out it's nice to sit at their outdoor picnic tables.Their baked goods are out of this world (I especially love the croissants) and they have tasty lunch items as well. This fall, I've been obsessed with their pumpkin soup. You can get a cup and it... More

I have fallen in love with this tiny bakery /restaurant. When I go there it always reminds me of what summers on the Cape used to be like. FABULOUS all around

Best buttery, flaky croissants. Darling lil place. Prices a tad high but it's the Cape and expected.

We have been vacationing in Orleans for years. This is THE morning spot. The coffee and pastries or muffins are addictive. If only they were low calorie. But it gives you incentive to walk or bike it off. They only bake one type of bread per day on a set schedule per week. If there is a specific type you... More
