This place is a great go-to for some really good pastries and drinks. Went there yesterday and had one of the soups - great stuff. By far the best bakery in town. Not the best bakery I've ever been to, but you won't find anything...More

Whenever we are traveling and are in the area near "coffee break" time, we head downtown to Essencia Artisan Bakery. Their desserts are so good. We like their cinnamon rolls.

The pastries here are to die for-- try the rhubarb croissant, you won't be disappointed!!! The coffee was good but a little too cool- I like very hot coffee. Service was polite and fast and the locals seem to love this place!!!

This place is truly a wonderful find. The coffee is really good. The foods are fresh, reasonably priced, and flavorful. The best part, to me, is that it is possible to be super healthy here. I enjoyed a quinoa, kale, butternut squash salad and a...More
