If i feel like having some fresh baked bread then this is the place I always land up in. When you choose your loaf they will cut them into slices and give you. The service also is good here

I'm surprise that this location doesn't have a higher review rate, but I really do enjoy coming to this location to get some bread I can't find in Ohio. I can't rate on the staff or sandwiches because I don't order sandwiches nor interact to much with the staff. The food/ bread are always good and fresh.

If you don't want to do sit down in the mall, this is a great place to pickup something quick and warm. Their pastries are good but not great.

Ordered chicken Caesar - chicken was not real chicken and was slimy and awful to look at. Would never go back. Bakery items looked good, sorry I didn't try something else. Other person had tuna and there was more bread than tuna!

Thank Brymark
