They offera good assortment of pastries and baked items. I thought they were a bit pricey and not all that special.

Don't miss getting a treat here and either enjoying it inside or out front or take it with you. Yummy sweets made on site.

My wife and I visited the Sweet Shop and had a taste of their Stollen which was perfect. The choices displayed were many and the number of customers in the store showed us that the Sweet Shop had many sweet lovers in town.

The display of pastry is vast and as we have tried several, delicious. Consider them for a special cake.

Wonderful bakery set in a historic building. Try the red velevt and oreo cupcakes. The cake is moist and just the right amount of frosting makes them a awesome snack. The breads and other sweet breads looked delicious.

We are huge fans of this bakery. Their bakers and cake decorators are totally amazing. From weddings to birthdays we get all our cakes from them. It's a fun place to hang out and get a pastry/ coffee on the weekend.

This is always the stop before heading to the casino. The sausage and cheese pockets are amazing. The homemade desserts are killer!

There is an old saying: with at least (4) coffee shops in the downtown area this is by far "The Best Coffee Shop On This Street". Very pleasant staff, great coffee ( and it doesn't require you to take out a loan to buy it), Plenty of seating areas, great assortment of pastry, and seems to be the meeting "hub"... More
