Found this place from TripAdvisor's reviews & it was what we were looking for.Good food for not too much $$ .Places from the top of the list were outside of our price range.I'm a person who can't bring myself to pay $50 for an entree.
Back to Baked.First evening when we came & my husband was super hungry & grumpy & tired from 7 hour drive,I knew I'd better feed him before even going to the hotel.Found this place easy,it was not crowded, they had meatloaf on special & was my husband happy or what!
Service was quick, portion was huge,meatloaf yummy,prices reasonable.I was saved.I had a pastry, which was good & made a plan to return next day.
Didn't have to, as our hotel, Camel's Garden, had their bagels & pastries for breakfast.They also had a good variety of tea & coffee, so that was my breakfast.I tried the bagel & it was amazing! It was chewy & soft & super tasty.We ran out of bagels & the girl serving breakfast just ran across the street to get more pastries & bagels from the bakery.
I was in haven,bakeries are the first thing I research for any place we travel,(I'm a sweet tooth).
We ate there on our 3d day too, this time it was spaghetti & meatballs( good). While my husband was eating ,I was exploring the pastry display & got myself an almond cookie .When I got back to the table, man in a chef's coat was talking to my husband.It was the owner/main baker Jerry talking to the customers to see how they like the food.I expressed all my satisfaction with the great variety & excellent quality of the baked goodies.He talked to me about the cookie I just bought.He's an interesting person & a passionate baker.
When I asked the cashier when to get fresh bagels in the morning, she said:5:30 & I laughed.
Was I wrong!I showed up at 7am & two varieties of bagels were sold out.Wow!I still got two dozen( some for my daughter)of at least five varieties.My daughter's favorite was "everything", my husband's "w/garlic & w/ onions"(there are still a couple lurking in my freezer). I also got a box of different pastries ( awesome macaroons!) and some bread.
Every time we were there service was fast, efficient ;quality -excellent.
I read some reviews where people were whining about getting their own bagel from bagel display. I actually liked this setting, as I was standing in front of the baked goodies & could choose what I want without being rushed to order.
Bottom line-this place is a must if you look for a bakery, and/or if you are on the budget & like good food at the same time.
Thanks to everyone ,Jerry especially.
