The hand-cut traditional donuts are top-notch. A nice place to get some pastry. Coffee was a touch weak for my tastes unfortunately.

I went to the Hall St. location later in the morning and could tell that there had been much more selection earlier. The attendant even offered to check the other location for the baked good I was looking for. Gold star for service! Wares just as good- flakey, tender, light yet rich and buttery croissants.

This little shop does a ton of business and is well worth visiting. They have quiches, breakfast sandwiches, and lots of decorated doughnuts/pastries. There prices are reasonable and the food is delicious.

I know that I can always get date pinwheels and date stuffed sugar cookies here. They have other great baked goods, but I go for the cookies every time we are in town.

we had a two layer chocolate cake ordered. It arrived at hotel in a box that should have been carrying a single layer cake with the lid of the box resting in the frosting, leaving a mess all over the box. The frosting was so thin on the $100 cake the chocolate showed through. Surprised everyone in the lobby ,... More
