Had breakfast here one morning and weren’t disappointed. Had sourdough french bread with a coffee. It was excellent and eaten while watching the bakers go about their business.

The bakery looked lovely and the menu choices in the cafe great however we were disappointed with the rolls and sandwich we had as the bread was just so tough to eat. Not an enjoyable experience.

If your into sourdough or baking head here. It’s a working bakery and you get so much info and insight into how the loaves are produced and were produced. It’s a free attraction and if you wish they do offer food and a bar.

Had dinner here with my wife. She had the Chowder in the bread bowl and she loved it. I had the crab sandwich which tasted ok. The big disappointment was that the crab sandwich was small and very expensive. Not worth the money!
