Stopped in here and picked up a few items to take home with us after dining at a nearby restaurant along State Street. Upon entering you notice how limited the space is in the interior of the building. There would have been more available space except the small seating area for patrons was roped off, with a do not enter... More

Everything we've had has been great. I get our bread there. The donuts and baked goods are great. We get soup to-go on a regular basis.

Adorable little bakery. They had a full selection of Italian butter cookies pastries and then little to go items. They have indoor seating along with a couple of benches outside. I only had one butter cookie is I am planning on eating my way down the block. The cookie was delicious.

This place is great. It had awesome pastries, but you have to go early. I see a review that they had a sparse selection, it really has to be timing. If you want fresh, then they're bound to run out instead of making too much and throwing it away. My favorite thing here is the long john with creme.. It... More

Friday is the best day to get my favorite french crullers, but with so many choices you won't be disappointed! It is a must visit for anyone who loves a good pastry or donut!

They are open for breakfast, barely. They serve a few breakfast items and they had coffee available. The place looked amazing and so did the bakery items. But I was shocked in a tourist town like this they didn't offer any gluten free options.

We stopped in for lunch when visiting St. Joe for the day. Our sandwiches were really good, but the cookies were tried were not impressive. They were very hard, and I like softer cookies better. Can't comment on any other baked goods, but our lunch was good!

I'm trying hard to find something positive to say about this place but I just can't. No selection! One brownie In the whole case. Ordered 4 different kinds of cookies and they were hard as a rock! No flavor. Avoid this place.

I discovered this small, nice bakery a few weeks ago with my son. The pastries are lightly fluffy, or crunchy, if thats your choice. I enjoy the Chai Latte with soy milk, as well. Every Friday I pick up my standing order for Challah Bread for my Shabbat dinner and blessing.
