“The bakery is sinful :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Their grilled sandwich on flatbread was excellent; along with their chips. Bit I could live in their bakery, the desserts are to die for. My fav is the apple fritters with lots if cinnamon and the cookies with a jam center.

We love this bakery in Helen. They have a great variety of handmade pastries. The apple fritter is delicious! Nice service and reasonable prices. We didn't eat in, just picked up things to go.

“Helenblitz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

The food is sooo good, and thoughtfully prepared! May take a bit to be seated, but the food is very worth it. Jacobs coffee is the only way to wake up.

We had lunch here upon our arrival to Helen and fell in love. Made a point to come back for breakfast and was just as pleased...my wife and I will eat here again when we visit again.
