No issues on the service or meals, but it is a bit expensive. The bread is really good but I'm not surprised (the same group owns the wonderful Collegetown Bagels).

This bakery is more of a cafe than a bakery. The baked goods are unparalleled, the cakes are real cakes to be sure. The coffee is also excellent. Beyond the bakery items, there are all kinds of delicious lunch and dinner options. Try the pulled pork Mac and cheese or the dumplings. There are no bad options. I have not had the bagels so unfortunately I can not comment on those. Basically there is something for everyone and it is all made with quality ingredients.

I'm not very impressed with their bread or extensive sandwich menu (largely because of how expensive the sandwiches are), but I must say that they have extremely high quality pastries! They're very delicate -- i.e., not overly buttery, sweet, etc. -- and made with great expertise and with great ingredients.

I have tried twice just to be sure. Once in the summer when it was relatively quiet and once this fall early in the morning before it was really busy. Both times the bagels were hard as rocks (I like them hard, but not THAT hard) The staff was very busy talking amongst themselves and figuring out their breaks, but not so much preparing the food. In fact not once, but both times, my sandwich was forgotten and I had to go find it while my breakfast companion was finishing her sandwich. The sandwich the first time was mediocre and the second inedible. A schmear of avocado, 3/4 inch of red onions and some rubbery scrambled egg. I appreciate that they compost, though. That's where it ended up.
