Great for a stop around the south end. We thought we were going to THE Bakery, a couple blocks away on the other side of the main road. This turned out fine, though. Dinner put a smile on everyone's face, and that's what counted. I...More

We stopped in mid afternoon on our drive to Volcano. All the previous reviews are spot on. We ordered four pieces of macnut pie and loved it! I don't have much of a sweet tooth and I even thought it was delicious.

We stopped for a quick lunch. Food was good. There aren't many options in the area but this is a good choice.

Stopped by for a quick lunch on our way north to Place of Refuge. Service was quick and very friendly. Sandwich breads are made in house and we had one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches we've ever had! We will definitely return!

No I don't believe so. But you can bring your own. If I remember right there is no corkage fee.
