“Man does not live by bread alone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

The Bible (Matthew 4:4) says that man does not live by bread alone.
But if he did, this is where you would find him.!!!
Call me an Asiago cheese junkie!!!! Definitely try the asiago cheese bread. We wait till it cools (is it that obvious that I get there early - it's still coming out of the oven) and then ask for them to slice it. Great toasted with butter and a cup of coffee watching the sun come up at the beach.
Got there at the opening bell. A little disappointed that the almond croissants were not yet available. If their excuse is, we're baking them fresh now; I can handle it. Well worth the wait.
Tantalizing your taste buds with delicate Danish gives freshness a new meaning!

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

High priced for what you get, sandwiches have very little meat on them & the bread is dry and hard. The staff act like they are doing you a favor to wait on you. Ask for extra cheese and none so I ask girl behind counter about it and her reaction was to roll her eyes.

This is my favorite cafe and bakery. We alway get there within the first 24 hours of us being on the island. The employees are super sweet and the food is fantastic.

Love to coming to this bakery. People are very friendly. Food and bread always fresh. Chocolate croissant is my favorite. My husband and I love their sandwiches and soups. Love everything about them. Everybody always welcome, they make you feel like at home.
