Description: Family owned bakery cafe. All natural, from scratch, freshly baked 40+ different varieties of artisan breads baked daily. Breakfast and lunch sandwiches, soup and salad. Espresso Bar up in the Roost. Stop in to see an old fashioned bakery work in progress. Staff waits on you as they multitask baking fresh cookies, scones, biscotti, granola, etc. From our families to yours, naturally. Beautiful view of West Bay up in the Roost or from inside the bakery.

The coffee is in carafes and tepid. The sandwiches and baked goods deserve a 4 to be fair - but the cold coffee and terrible service and claustrophobic entrance will prevent us from returning. Try smiling folks.

My favorite veggie sandwich on multi grain was ok but not great. Hubby's Parm hummus (cold as we got packed lunches for later) was much better. Cookies were average. Don't have croissants

I hope they last since they really don't charge enough. Talk about a best buy! Let's hope they don't read this.

They have a great variety of breads, and some cookies, muffins, cinnamon roles, etc. Baked fresh daily and it's all very good.

They also make sandwiches that are very good.

The staff often seems tired and not too happy to be there but maybe it's because they have to get up at 4 am every day to bake the bread. I go there all the time and I've lived here 14 years.

Like the others writers, stopped by for lunch but ended up with some of our party eating breakfast and others eating lunch. The bakery downstairs is busy and offers many choices of breads, cookies, etc. Ordered our meals and waited upstairs for them to be delivered. Enjoyed a view of the bay while we ate. Recommended by a local as a "must visit" and I agree!

Went in to check this little place out and they had a lot of choices in breads and menu. Sitting in the main entrance is small, but they have a larger sitting area upstairs, that when you order and go find a table they will come up to bring you your order. Quick service. Would go again.
