“Fabulous local family baker.”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

We believe that the Portugeuse hand baked rolls are the best, we have tried the Scotch oatmeal this week and tastes just like home. The breads and treats are delicious all baked with care and attention. Thank you, we are now only buying our breads from you.

“a fantastic bakery with a gifted Baker!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

My wife went in twice before I visited and it was love at first bite for me. Those Portuguese Rolls are little pillows of greatness that are perfect for any sandwich combination or to just eat them plain. We have had their scotch oatmeal and rye sandwich breads with both being over the top good. I ventured in by myself on the 11th and had the opportunity to meet Carlos Garcia “Master Baker” at this family owned business. He is a very humble guy with a gift to crank out fantastic breads and baked goods. I do not want to forget those turnovers and cheese danish that are so good too!! By all means venture in and meet the crew while you shop at this gem of a place!!
