Bought a peach ginger scone, a ginger cookie, and a giant date square. Very good. Wish the goth girl behind the counter was a little friendlier, but she did her job, so whatever.

Went to Slates recently to celebrate a friend's birthday. Loved the warm, comfortable decor. The staff was welcoming and inviting, courteous and attentive. The food was good and arrived quickly. A very fun, positive experience. Definitely worth checking out.

Read good reviews so we stopped in. Very simple, easy review.... 10 out of 10. Bloody Mary was spot on as were chicken pot pie and service. Very nice spot for lunch and will make a point to return.

Massive chicken salad croissant but way too much celery for my taste. Curried chicken salad with apples is better per my dining partner, Interesting art work on the walls is for sale.

The restaurant is good and the bakery even better! Tip for Bakery... buy a bread slicer. When people buy a loaf of bread, they may want it sliced. The bread was fantastic! Highly recommend!

The blueberry muffin, chocolate chip cookie, and molasses and oat bread were delicious. We'll have to try the other sweets next time we go there.

You will never be disappointed with a visit to Slates. The restaurant has good, pleasing, healthful food. The bakery has decadent delights (gluten free, too). Recommend stopping by and picking up a chicken pot pie and dessert for that evening when you just don't feel...More
