The most expensive scone you will ever buy but really really good. And the coffee was pretty damn good also. Don't look at the prices or your receipt, just leave a tip and smile as you enjoy a pretty amazing pastry and cup of coffee...More

I just loved most everything about this place, We sat in front of the fire, Service was super, casual, comfortable, nice wine list with some local gems. My vegetarian made me feel as if I was at Greens in SF

We stopped here for gas, directions, a restroom break, and a little something to eat. Gas was a little higher than other stops just down the road. The Bakery was very crowded. We arrived about 930 in the morning and many of the pastries were...More

Cuteness overload!! We saw this place from the road and drove in because it was so adorable! The gardens are so pretty; this was a great place to relax and take a break with a good meal during our long drive. I had the vegetarian...More
