If I lived near this place, I would go every day. The bread, the pastries, the sandwiches... all of it are absolutely scrumptious and priced incredibly well for what you are getting. Don’t pass up the opportunity to have breakfast or lunch at this spot.

I bought a birthday cake at the bakery. Chantilly chocolate with strawberries. Everyone who was lucky enough to get a piece couldn't believe how wonderful it was. It was spectacular!

Cool little bakery with neat dishes. Fairly limited and a bit pricey. $7 for grits with toppings. But very tasty

This bakery is by far better than the others nearby. I had their chantilly cake which was excellent! Also their King Cake with bouille (cream filling) was tasty. I only wished I could have brought their King Cake with chantilly/bouille filling home!
