Taking a hint from Rachel Ray we frequently ask the local residents for a restaurant recommendation. Without hesitation the locals recommended Girard Gourmet. The food was good, the service was exceptional, the price was good. I wholeheartedly recommend Girard Gourmet.

Really a can't-go-wrong deli/bakery/cafe. Plum marzipan tart is a must. The frosted cookies were a delight, with frosting that had a bit of a citrus flavor. We'll be back

Over priced for what they offer and definitely needs cleaning! We tried this place for breakfast. The vegetarian sandwich was ok, nothing special. The baguette was far from what you call baguette. The espresso machine was not working. And before we could sit, we had...More

Have you tried to CALL them? They're a very small place, so I wouldn't expect a lot of flexibility, but if you order in advance they may be able to accommodate you.
