Their latte was excellent, and the food is very good as well. Serves basic breakfast pastries along with some meat and cheese options.

Don't come here if you have dietary restrictions!! This place will not accommodate something as basic as taking ham out of a crepe. Asked for it without, they said they can do it, later on the crepe had ham in it. When we asked for one without, the response was "well it's premade". They wouldn't make it without ham and... More

Yes there can be a wait but the food is exceptionally well priced and delicious. ruben sandwich Panini style was 8.99 I think. They also have some sidewalk tables or just go across the street into the lovely square and have a picnic.

Busy place. Went by 8 a.m. Three order takers kept the lines moving. Pastries delicious. Ham and cheese quiche was great. Absolutely worth visiting. Some chairs and tables outside.

All locals get their bread, dinner rolls and pastries here. There's always a line since its small but you can take anything you get right across the street to the Square and be very happy. Great coffee, pastries and brunch type food.

We ordered box lunches in advance to enjoy while we were out wine tasting. There was a very nice selection of sandwiches and salads available for us to choose from.

This little bakery was just awesome! My suggestion is to no go too hungry, you'll want to order one of everything. The panini are fantastic and the croissants were just perfect!

Experience some very delicious pastries, breads, desserts, coffee. They have a great breakfast menu and a nice lunch menu. Looking to to have a picnic at a winery, stop and get one of their delicious sandwiches. The staff is very friendly. It is frequented by the locals which, to me, says the place is a good place to go.

My only regret is not discovering this bakery until the very last day of my visit. You must get the morning bun. Get extras :) Tip: get here well before closing if you want a decent selection. The cheese store nearby does carry their bread if you the bakery is out. I'll be back for to try more.
