My husband & I stopped in for a coffee & treat! Oh so many to choose from & everything looked delicious. We both had something different & were so pleased with how good it was. Bought a loaf of grain bread! Delish!

They make a very good assortment of breads which I love, and have a bread card as well so after so many - you get a free loaf. Lots of good bakery items as well as a good selection of lunch items.

If you enjoy European bakes, this is the place for you. Very pleasant place with a little historical history outside. You can eat in or out on the patio.
