Just read a review that trashed this place. I am not sure we were in the same restaurant. I was there approximately two hours before and found everything excellent. Angry competitor? Disgruntled sort...not sure but our experiences could not have been more opposite.

Right across the street from the Bird-In-Hand market, we found this to be a nice place to eat a quick snack. It is a self service care but offered just enough to fill the hollow spot. We got a nice view to watch the travellers...More

Really loved this bakery. I had lunch at the cafe, great food. It was nice to have ‘light lunch’ options compared to the many buffet restaurants in the area. The bakery has many options. Very friendly staff.

Don't get me wrong, this place is terrific but I am sure that I gained 5 pounds from the aroma of the fresh baked products. The apple fritters are to die for, but seriously worth it if you have a long ride home.
