This is the place everyone in the neighborhood goes to for breakfast pastries! They have an incredible array of muffins, croissants, scones, morning buns and danish. The cinnamon rolls go especially quickly! At lunch the line is long for their sandwiches. I have not purchased their cakes, but they look gorgeous. The cakes are pretty pricey, but I am sure...

Next to our office. Went there several days for lunch while in town. Staff always very friendly. Sandwiches are huge and a variety of breads for each type of sandwich. Try the chicken salad sandwich or the BLT....everything was delicious

This is a very nice bakery with a large variety of cakes, cupcakes,cookies and muffins. In addition, this is a great place for lunch - they serve tasty sandwiches and salads and the portion size is also quite generous.

This place has excellent sandwiches and salads. Their bakery is phenomenal. They have both indoor and outdoor seating available. They serve breakfast items as well, but I have not been in for breakfast. They can get crowded during the traditional lunch hour, but worth the trouble. Gluten-free options available. Friendly staff.

Sweet affair used to have great sandwiches at reasonable pricing, but that has changed. The amount of meat on the sandwich is greatly reduced to the point where you feel like you are eating just bread. And the prices have increased significantly so it is not a cheap meal. Well, it was good while it lasted, but in this day... More

Looked for lunch after visiting Ruth Bancroft Gardens 1/2 mile away and found this gem! Excellent sandwiches on their baked breads: quality plus quantity. Free drink refills & cookie samples. Extensive gourmet baked goods...too hard to choose! Interesting decor with old signs and antique spice tins. Call in your order ahead and receive a free cookie! I highly recommend this... More

Extensive selection of beautiful, baked from scratch cakes. 3 sizes to choose from, prices start from $13 to around $35. Mostly real buttercream frosting, not too sweet (which I like) and no hydrogenated fat. About 10 kinds of cupcakes, 3 were cute Easter theme with rabbits, "grass" and sprinkles. I bought 2 shortbread cookies with St Patricks Day icing for... More

Stopped by here after a meeting with a friend who had never been here. Got A+ review from her! They had a choice of three difference soups, with a cup being a most generous serving. Their sandwiches are so thick you can barely get your mouth around them!!! But oh was the chicken salad sandwich on homemade multigrain bread yummy!... More

This has always been my favorite for special lunches. My favorite is the chicken salad. You can call in your order to pick up, and get a free cookie. Not sure they still do this. Great place to order pastries for special brunches or cakes for birthdays.

My girlfriend is Vietnamese and i think she thought she was going to get something more like barbecue chicken but she really did not like the chicken salad sandwich, the bread, i think was butter crust, well it may not be as good for you as spinach but the bread crust was great. The cranberry bran muffin was beautiful and... More
