Lunch menu is great. Very fast service. You can get in and out in an hour. Friendly staff. Baked goods are truly home-made goodness.

Good food and great bakery items. Menu could use a bit of variety. But items offered are excellent. Service is good.

If I am downtown on business, I will occasionally stop by the Baker's Rack for lunch and dessert. The wait staff have always been friendly, the food is fresh, and the desserts are REALLY GOOD!

This locally owned restaurant offers a good choice for lunch downtown on a budget. They have items from egg salad sandwiches to a hot plate. Really good desserts are available . A whole casserole and pies and cakes can be taken home after lunch.

We have been here several times and have found the food always to be excellent. All their quiche are great - cheesy and delicious. Strawberry salad is to die for. But this place really rocks desserts - my favorite is the Chess Squares. They are ooey gooey good!!! I have NEVER gotten a bad dessert, though, and I've tried a... More

Tired of eating at a chain. Want something that is cooked with love and down home good? Well, my I suggest this locally owned downtown treasure. It's a little off the highway, but easy enough to get back on. We heard some great things about this little restaurant/ bakery, and decided to try it. This is a local downtown favorite... More
