When we could not get into Log Cabin Cafe in under 1.5 hours, we discovered this gem of a bakery almost adjacent. Dozens of breakfast pastries are available, hard boiled eggs, and every imaginable coffee drink. Prompt, friendly service--and massive varieties of pies to eat there or take with you when you leave. My beloved adored his Boston Cream treat.

Small bakery, on a popular road, with a large customer base year round. How do you screw this up? Well, Brockway Bakery has done it. I have tried it three times and each was a fail. The bakery at the Safeway down the road is much better.

Recommend that you avoid this "bakery". They've got a very limited selection, consisting mainly of "crispies" which fill-up about 50% of their display case inventory. They are CASH ONLY, and the price for a small "crispie" is $3.60 each (we're used to paying about $1.00 each for these simple treats). Don't waste your time stopping here - you'll find a... More

Super nice artist lady owns this cute little establishment. The food is awful. I drive by it every day, wishing there were fresh baked goods in my town, instead of this placeholder. Please, somebody who will bake from scratch, come help this kind lady run a real bakery.

We thought we'd treat ourselves to a pastry and just sit and relax early one Saturday morning. Boy were we disappointed. They had a large selection of danish pastries and there were several customers sitting out at the tables so we thought this would be nice. The main message there was NO Public Restrooms plastered all over the area. We... More

We were on our way out of town and should have read reviews first. Stupid expensive, round bread they called bagels, Chai that was really cappuccino, cheap coffee cups and lids. Just a waste of a lot of money.

We stopped here simply because we were driving by and I love fresh pastries in the morning. I was immediately disappointed in the selection and was even more disappointed by the quality. Skip this place, go to Starbucks.

When I go to a bakery I expect something better than I can make at home. I've this place beat by a mile. Worst day old danish (small) I ever had. Needed a gallon of milk for this and our almond shortbread cookie which together cost, are you ready for this over $7.50 to wash them down. Business has no... More

This establishment should not be allowed to advertise as a bakery. I should have realized the quality issue when I saw that scones, cut in half, filled with a spoonful of cream and topped with nutella were being sold as Boston cream donuts, so I bear some responsibility for the junk I was sold. I ordered 4 french rolls and... More

All of the pies looked amazing when we stopped in while walking by. Nice selection of cookies and pastries - those looked good, too. The croissants looked heavy and not at all flaky, but we decided to come back the next day and pick up some of the mini pies for dessert. And they looked so good on day 2... More
