The sticky buns with pecans are super. The Mudslide cookies are the best cookies in the world and I have been eating cookies for many, many years. It is worth your time to go out of your way to stop by this location.

One student recommend it and we loved it, like many of the other things we tried at the bakery. Great place to stop by for coffee and dessert if you visit the CIA.

We drove around the campus and decided to drop in for a quick lunch after touring FDR mansion, library, and museum. Just being at the CIA is fascinating. We had chicken and dumpling soup that was just okay; however, the desserts were awesome.
