“Charming - but avoid the bread”

This is a charming looking bakery right on the main strip - it beckons you to come in and order up some yummy baked goods. After our experience, I think it's charm is the only thing that keeps it in business.

We stopped here to get sandwiches to take on a hike. Although we ordered three different types of bread (9 grain squaw, sourdough and shepherder) for our sandwiches, all were incredibly dry and fell apart almost immediately. The sandwiches come with a couple of cookies. They were also dry and crumbly.

You'd think a bakery could make decent bread and cookies. This one doesn't.

What's wrong with this bakery? Our homemade looking, chocolate topped donuts were dry and tasteless. Like the dough was made from Bisquick (husband's words). $2.75 each..We are always seeking out mom & pop coffee houses when traveling. What a disappointment here.

Family-owned, but the price of the pastry was larger than the pastry! Also, sadly, it was very dry...almost stale. Maybe the pies were better, but I didn't have tons of cash.

They displayed many great pastries, unfortunately all I wanted was coffee. Others eating there seemed to like the offerings and it looked and smelled good. Coffee was good.

Most of their pastries have a half inch of white sugar caked on top, even the expensive mini pie. I love pie and this one was very disappointing. It had no flavor and it tasted like I was eating pure sugar.
