My daughter & I shared a breakfast sandwich with scrambled eggs, potatoes, chipotle mayo and avocado one morning while I was visiting. The sandwich was delicious. We were very lucky because we hit it at a perfect time and didn't have to wait on line which is usually the case, I've been told.

They have great English muffins. However, they have a very bizarre policy of one can only purchase a dozen at one time.

This place does baked goods right. They have bread, pastries, cookies, and a bunch of other items. The cheese Danish, cinnamon rolls, chocolate cookies are great.

We stayed in a room with a kitchen so we cooked breakfast every morning, but we still went up to model bakery for a daily pastry. Everything we tried was delicious.

Very yummy, great place to go for desert or just a treat. Would recommend highly. Little tugged away behind the Burger place Gotts.

While they have all the great usual baked goods and bread try their breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Many to choose from the wall menu. Only wish they would start lunch sandwiches before noon. How about 11 or 11:30?

We stayed at the Westin, which is really close to Model. Amazing breafkast - we came here everyday. Note that the bakery is very popular so expect long wait times. The part that sucked is that the bakery does not have a very good/efficient system of getting customers in and out. sometimes it's hard to understand where the line is... More

Don't leave with out a 6pk of english muffins. They are light and airy in the middle and unlike any english muffin you have ever had.

Grabbed a couple different types of bread to have with our wine and cheese. Everything was freshly baked, slightly crunchy on the outside with fluffy soft centers.
