Went on a local recommendation in the barber shop! Bakery with a cafe out the back, seat yourself, table service. Great menu and generous serves, my tea pot was refreshed as part of the service. Difficult to choose a dessert, everything look so good!

Nice small town bakery. Friendly staff of all ages, with a good breakfast .The bakery in the front of the restaurant has many choices of pastries and are very delicious. You won't be disappointed , even if its a quick stop for a treat.
