Superb - best ever scones. I had black cherry and blueberry with lemon glaze. These are the best I've ever tasted!!! I had to stop a second time the morning I left. You order from the front counter, pay and take your food. Don't expect to be served, but you can sit inside or out within steps of the lake.... More

We tried the peach muffins, a bagel and the chocolate chip waffle. The muffins were really good and the bagel was tasty as well. The waffle had far too much chocolate in it which made it too sweet even for a chocolate-loving kid to eat. I also found it to be over-priced for what you get but I think that... More

I stopped in one morning and ordered breakfast and decided to eat it there. The food was delicious. The sitting area was and atmosphere was warm and homey. The staff was helpful and friendly. I will return for another hot breakfast next time I'm in town.

Relaxed breakfast just off Main Street. Coffee and Italian Cream Soda were quick to be made and good. Apple strudel was a little overly cinnamon filled, but the pastry texture was perfect. Chocolate croissant was very good, definitely have it heated. Our son ordered the waffle with chocolate chips, whip cream and almonds... It was so good I abandoned my... More

If you are looking for breakfast - try the Randall with ham and pesto. But the chocolate cookies with chocolate genache are special!!

We drove over to Grand Lake from Winter Park. After a little shopping, my granddaughter spotted the Blue Water Bakery. There is a cafe attached but we just got in the to-go line. Croissants, ( chocolate!) scones, tarts, sandwiches with crusty baguettes, lattes and coffees. Grab something delicious and head to the picnic tables by the lake, which happens to... More

Great little bakery. You are going to pay for the privilege to enjoy these treats in a small mountain town but they are delightful.
