After stopping four times, this place if off my list. The people waiting on you are curt, unfriendly, like they are doing you a favor.

The fruit tart tasted old like yogurt with soggy fruit. The gluten free blueberry. Scone was hard and had an after taste like gluten free products that are not made well. The customer service person was unfriendly did not speak and I would probably never go back there again

We enjoyed the little cake desserts we bought here. Everything looked good but it is a little pricey. We stood in line for 10 minutes while the counter girl chatted with someone. They were very nice to let us use their phone to find our rental home since our phones had no service. We appreciated that a lot! Any seating... More

It's a place I wouldn't go out of my way for. It seems as if they're doing you a favor by waiting on you. Everything that I've had there has been very good... More
