The GBH is a family-owned and run business, which means the food, atmosphere, and hours aren't cookie cutter, but are consistently good. This is the place the locals frequent for pizza made just the way they like it, and piled high (they're not stingy with toppings). While there, do give in and try something from the bakery case. The gingerbread with lemon sauce are homemade and unique to the GBH. Hours are seasonal and change often, so call or ask around for the latest. If they're serving breakfast then there's nowhere else you should go for an egg sandwich and doughnuts!

Attempted to go here 3 days in one week at different hours of the morning.....closed every time... what a joke! I guess they are so good that they can show up for work at leisure....They are definitely keeping the Orange Blossom thriving!!

We are sorry for any inconvenience you or any other would-be customers may have experienced during the week of your visit. Chef Gary, the owner and only baker (he bakes EVERYTHING that we serve), was in the hospital recovering from an emergency appendectomy during the week that you stopped by three times. As such, we were unable to be open for breakfast. Facebook postings from that time will substantiate this claim. We posted a sign on our door, but apologize that this didn't effectively communicate our situation to you. We hope you'll consider stopping by again sometime when you are in town.

Their building is decorated in a way to remind you of a Gingerbread House. The pizza is very good, but their thick crust is not thick. They also have local artwork on display that can be purchased.

Buxton has its pastry headquarters but I don't like waiting in long lines when I'm on vacation. Here the AM options are bountiful and delicious. The breakfast sandwiches are super-sized and the cookies, sweets and pastries taste like they are right out of an olde European market. Get some to go and thank me later. The only line here is those gazing into the displays that can't make up their mind. Tell them "they're all good!"
