“Much more interesting place than we expected”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Did a little shopping in the best stocked cooking store I've ever seen and then had lunch. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food. The only down side was the cupcakes which were not good at all. Frosting out of a can or something, it was gritty with sugar. But, breads and such were baked on the premises, very fresh.

“Too pricey and my roast beef sandwich was awful, Panera Bread is better!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

So, we decided to make a detour stop on our way to drop our son off to camp. A little out of the way, but we thought for sure t would be well worth it. WRONG!

This bakery is way over priced and the food wasn't good. The store is amazingly overpriced.

Next time we won't make the detour, we will just head straight to camp!

“Maybe they were having a bad day!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Horrible! Thought it would be a great place to stop on our travels, but was wrong. They forgot my order and then gave me the wrong thing!

“Baking classes and pastries!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My wife took a class at the King Arthur Bakery and we stopped in the cafe before hand for breakfast. The food was wonderful. Wide assortment of delicious fresh baked pastries and breads. For the quality, the prices are quite reasonable. The class that my wife took was also great!

“If you like to cook and like to eat, don't miss this fabulous shop!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Every time I come to the area, I stop at KAF. The specialty cooking tools and food products are quite the temptation! The food in the shop, superb! Cooking classes are offered as well. My goal is to some day take one!
